I have been following soy research for a couple years now. Scientists believe that soy, in large amounts, like when a baby only has soy formula, or an adult eats a bunch of soy based foods, may lead to problems later.
1. babies consuming soy formula, primarily, have an increased chance of developing early hormone development, yes this means boobs
2. In adulthood may lead to brain aging.
Those are the top two concerns that scientists are studying.
It is now being said that there is an increase number of young children with breasts in China, as read in The Stir, and it is from formula.
Now from my research it is not the actual soy that is causing this hormone increase but the pesticides used for the soy that causes it.
So it is recommended to buy organic soy formulas if you can.
Not a question I know, but I have been following this for so long and finally there is more proof so I want to inform you ladies.
