Soy Toxicity In Poultry Meat And Eggs Ask your grower to select better feeds. (Remedies to remove soy toxicity is in last paragraph) =========================================================================== Many poultry feeds contain antibiotics, hormones, arsenic and toxic soy protein. The reasons that arsenic is used in feed are to keep insects and rodents from eating feeds, and as an antibiotic. Antibiotics are used to suppress symptoms of and hide diseases. Hormones and soy proteins are used to hasten and increase growth. All of those compounds are toxic and dangerous, causing diseases, including cancer, heart, osteoporosis and diabetes. I covered Arsenic in my accompanying article "Arsenic In Poultry Meat And Eggs; Another Cancer Connection". Here, of course, the topic is soy. Soy must be treated to alter natural substances in it that cause sickness or death to poultry and humans when eaten. The beans must be bathed in acidic baths and heated at extreme temperatures. Then they spray dry it with nitrates to produce protein powder, and add artificial (chemical) flavorings, MSG, preservatives, sweeteners and other synthetic ingredients to trick the pallet of poultry and humans to eat the toxic matter. According to Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, MD, nitrates have been known for decades to cause cancer, yet the FDA allows them in many foods. Soy contains many phytoestrogens, IGg and trypsin inhibitor that have caused cancers and inhibited growth in hundreds of animals. There are many websites that site toxicity and tests utilizing soy chemicals. Search: "Soy toxic". Poultry, especially chicken fed high ratios of soy protein to increased meat and egg production, taste unappetizing. The more soy in the feed, the blander and oddly unappealing is the taste. Fifty years ago, the population would have rejected eggs and poultry meat that tasted like that. Poultry grown on mainly corn and other grains is rich and healthy-tasting, as well as health-giving. Very often, poultry meat and eggs that are labeled organic are fed mainly soy, such as Rosie Organic Chicken. It is not only a misnomer, it is an outright advertising fraud. Even though the soy that is fed to its chickens was organically grown, when the soy is processed with chemicals and used as feed, it fails to be organic. Rosie "Organic" Chicken feeds its chickens up to 75% chemically-treated and processed soy. To get your poultry and eggs producers to grow tastier and healthier meat and eggs, I suggest that you write to them, give them this information and ask them to feed their poultry raw meat scraps (fresh or rank - poultry love rank raw meat because they are omnivorous scavengers) for protein, and corn and other grains for delicious, flavorful and healthy meat and eggs. If they need a good mineral supplement to make eggshells stronger, suggest that they add a little Terramin clay (www.terramin.com) to their feed. To gradually remove soy byproduct toxicity from within the body, I suggest eating a combination of 2-3 ounces coconut cream, 1-inch cube no-salt-added raw cheese, 1 tablespoon unheated honey, 2-3-inches section of unripe raw banana and 1-3 raw eggs. Eating enough raw meat daily helps remove body-stored soy-protein toxicity.
