The Truth About Soy -- Busting the Myths And Learning the Benefits Dr. Steve Chaney, PhD Joanette Coogan Barbara Lagoni Harper Guerra

2 Urban Myths Often Start With a Blog or Web site
Message is based on bias of the authors Confuse animal studies with clinical studies The authors choose clinical studies selectively to support their bias Message is always spectacular Never let facts get in the way of a good story Some of those web sites are authored by doctors They have their biases, too If the “headlines” are always about… “Miracle foods or nutrients” that prevent “X”…or… Foods or supplements that might just kill you…and… The “establishment” isn’t telling you about it You know they can’t all be true steve 2 2

3 …It becomes an “Urban Myth”
“Urban Myths” Continued Doctors and Health Organizations Have Their Biases If their bias happens to be anti-supplement, the “burden of proof” is often applied unequally Single studies showing benefit are ignored Single studies showing harm are emphasized And then there is the media They have their biases, also They aren’t trained in how to interpret scientific studies It is the “spectacular” – the bad news - that sells subscriptions And once the story has been repeated often enough it becomes generally accepted as true… steve …It becomes an “Urban Myth” 3 3

4 Soy Myths Breast cancer
Diminishes male sexuality ( 15 studies refute ) Increases risk of prostate cancer ( studies show decrease risk, decreases PSA levels ) Increases hypothyroidism ( underactive thyroid) ( 20 studies refute .. Soy can inhibit absorption of thyroid medications so , just like with any other food, wait an hour before eating ) Unless soy is fermented, it is bad for you.

5 Soy and Breast Cancer Claim: “Soy consumption increases the risk of breast cancer in women” Fears are based on animal studies (and those are mixed)1 Soy consumption over a lifetime decreases risk of breast cancer by 25-58%2 But what about women who have had breast cancer? A recent study with 5,000 subjects asked that question3 Breast cancer survivors with highest soy intake had: 25% less chance of breast cancer recurrence 25% less chance of dying from breast cancer 1Journal of Nutrition, 132: , 2008 2Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention, 18: , steve 3JAMA, 302: , 2009 5 5

9 Health Risks Associated With Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) To People… To the Environment
2 types of Genetic Engineering Modification to DNA – -- Some plants have been modified to produce pesticides ( to kill bugs eating their leaves) -- Bacteria in human intestines pick up some of that modified DNA and theoretically could produce the same pesticides. Modifications to Proteins Result from modifications to DNA --Can cause allergic reactions

10 GMO and The Environment
Genetic modifications of crops to make them resistant to herbicides ( Round-Up Ready) … encourages the overuse of pesticides to compensate. As farmers increasingly rely on GMO plants, there is a decrease in genetic diversity, making those crops more susceptible to new viruses or pests in the future. Good News –There are some GMO Products To NOT Be Concerned About No scientific evidence that sugars, oils, other nutrients extracted from foods are dangerous or different from non-GMO . .. And not enough supply of non-GMO to meet market demand. steve
