How Soy Can Kill You and Save Your Life

“Eating soy will kill you!” Scan the media reports and surf the Internet, and you’re bound to come across scary claims that would lead you to believe this is true. You may have heard:

• Soy will give you breast cancer.
• Soy formula is dangerous to babies.
• Genetically modified soy foods may modify you.
• Soy foods block your thyroid function.
• Soy prevents the absorption of minerals and interferes with digestion.
• Tofu causes Alzheimer’s disease.

If you want an excellent, unbiased, scientifically sound review of all the relevant human data on soy, Dr. Hyman recommends reading the 100-page report from the Agency for HealthCare Research and Quality entitled, The Effects of Soy on Health Outcomes, which reviewed thousands of studies based on rigorous criteria for scientific validity. Its conclusion was this: There is no evidence of significant benefit or harm based on the quality of evidence that exists today.

So what’s a confused consumer to do? Give up on soy until we know for sure? Or chow down on soy nuts? Don’t panic. There are some things we do know about soy, both good and bad. Read More

The Perfect Moisturizer for Summer

posted by unsinkablemoo

With summer upon us I have been updating my routine.  My dry skin needs something heavy and thick during the winter but when it starts heating up my skin needs something light but equally moisturizing.  My new favorite is:

Jason Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion

It has 70% organic ingredients and is perfect for my extremely winter white legs and arms. It has a light coconuty smell and isn’t goopy on my skin.  It is mineral oil/petrolatum and wax free, 100% vegetarian and is never tested on animals.

Try it yourself!
