The ONLY Soy You Should Ever Eat

You can get remarkable benefits from this little bean —
But only if you avoid this catastrophic mistake...

It is no secret that soy has become the best-loved 'health food' of the past 20 years.

What is a secret — by all evidence — is which soy products you should use to obtain these health benefits. After all, there's a world of difference between the beneficial ones — and the ones that will seriously throw a wrecking ball at your health.

It's often hailed as a wonder food, but soy is actually a Pandora's box of benefits and dangers.

Continued below. . .

Amazing Blood Pressure Secret From The Japanese

For more than 1,000 years, people in Japan have consumed a soy-based food called natto, which contains a unique enzyme called nattokinase. By eating this powerful enzyme, the Japanese keep their blood vessels clear and free of dangerous blood clots.

Now, after many centuries in secrecy, nattokinase is finally available in America.

Clearly, if you want to support healthy circulation and enjoy normal blood pressure at the same time, nattokinase is the nutrient for you. To find out how to get this scientifically proven enzyme in an inexpensive daily supplement, click here.

Japanese women have held the record for the world's longest life expectancy for 25 years now (as of 2010), according to Reuters News. Women in Japan have a life expectancy of 86.44 years, while Japanese men can expect to live 79.59 years.

It's been said, "It's all in the food." And it is true that the Japanese consume a diet rich in fish, soy and tea. What's more, there's less overeating because of their custom of small serving sizes.

However, there is a soy secret the Japanese know — which Americans seem totally clueless about.

The soy secrets not one American out of ten knows...

You see, there are two kinds of soy — the kind the Japanese eat, and the kind Americans eat. And a great chasm separates the two.

Hence, the great debate about whether soy is truly a 'health food' or not.

What if everything you've heard about soy is industry hype and multi-million dollar marketing campaigns based on half-truths or lies?

The U.S. soy industry was born decades ago, back when coconut and palm oils were in nearly every kitchen. But since these two tropical oils were primarily grown outside the U.S., a plan was devised to replace them with a domestic 'healthy' oil — soybean.

The explosive growth of the soy industry was virtually guaranteed thanks to government subsidies, which kept prices artificially low, and the American Soybean Association, which united the industry into a powerful lobby. For the most part, the industry has succeeded in convincing Americans that its soybeans are indeed a health food.

But regular unfermented soy has been linked to all sorts of health issues — digestive distress, immune system breakdown, PMS, endometriosis, reproductive problems (men and women), allergies, ADD and ADHD, increased heart disease and cancer risk, malnutrition, and loss of libido.

Were it eaten as it usually is in Japan, soy could be considered a health food. In Japan, soy is nearly always consumed in fermented form, while in the U.S. it's almost always highly processed and non-fermented.

And there's a world of difference...

Here's a quick look at the difference
between fermented and non-fermented soy...

Fermented Soy Products
Natto (Nattokinase)
Soy sauce (tamari)
Fermented tofu
Fermented soy milk
Pickled tofu
Non-Fermented Soy Products
Soy milk
Fresh green soybeans
Whole dried soybeans
Soy nuts & chips
Soy flour
Soy sprouts
Soy cheese / veggie cheese
Soy infant formula

5 reasons to avoid non-fermented soy

Numerous studies have been performed on soy dating back to 1925. These are the highlights:

  1. Soy blocks vitamin and mineral absorption, denying your body the health building tools it needs.

    Soy has extremely high phytate levels, and they're highly resistant to normal phytate-reduction tactics like long, slow cooking. Long periods of fermentation will greatly reduce those levels, though it won't eliminate them.

    Every plant has anti-nutrient properties, but the soybean plant is especially rich in these chemicals. If they're not removed by fermentation, soybeans are one of the worst foods you can eat.

    Soy creates an increased bodily demand for vitamins E, K, D and B12. The phytic acid in soy blocks absorption of essential minerals, creating mineral deficiencies of calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc, and more.

  2. Soy contains its very own natural toxins, known as anti-nutrients.

    These are potent enzyme inhibitors that block trypsin and other enzymes from being released to help you digest protein and carbohydrates.

    The enzyme inhibitors can produce gastric distress and cause amino acid deficiencies. Diets high in trypsin inhibitors caused enlargement and pathological conditions including cancer in test animals.

  3. Soy contains endocrine-disrupting isoflavones, especially one called genistein.

    Problems relating to dietary intake of isoflavones include infertility, reproductive problems, thyroid and liver disease.

    One hundred grams of soy protein (less than four ounces) can contain nearly 500 mg of isoflavones — a very high dose. In 1992 the Swiss Health Service estimated that 100 grams of soy protein provide the same amount of estrogen as one birth control pill. This is a controversial subject — I would say the jury is still out on whether eating a large amount of genistein is literally the same as supplementing with human estrogen. But if I were you, I wouldn't take the chance.

    What's even more paradoxical is that genistein has been shown to KILL cancer cells under some circumstances. From what I can learn, we don't have definitive answers on the good and the bad when it comes to this plant chemical.

  4. Unfortunately, matters get worse when soy is processed.

    It is often acid-washed in aluminum tanks, leaching aluminum into the finished product. Spray drying produces nitrites, which are potent carcinogens. The toxin lysinoalanine forms during alkaline processing. Artificial flavorings, especially MSG, are added to soy protein isolate (SPI) and textured vegetable protein (TVP) products to cover their 'beany' taste and make it more 'meat-like'.

  5. DNA damage and cancer.

    Are you now consuming soy in the belief that it protects you from breast cancer?

    Genistein was found to stimulate breast cells to enter into a breast cancer cycle.1 Furthermore, scientists have known since 1993 that soy causes DNA damage and chromosome fragmentation.2

And there's more damaging evidence which is beyond the scope of this article.

It should be noted that America's FDA even ignored two of its own expert research scientists (Daniel Sheehan, PhD and Daniel Doerge, PhD) — when these two Daniels expressed concerns about the widely-accepted 'safe' use of soy.

Why fermented soy is a MUCH different story…

Fermentation is the oldest known form of food biotechnology, dating back more than 5,000 years. Our distant ancestors found it was a way of preserving foods safely.

Traditional fermentation processes enrich foods biologically with protein, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, numerous antioxidants and phytosterols... and increase the quantity, availability, digestibility and assimilation of nutrients.

In soy, fermentation removes the trypsin inhibitors — those nasty anti-nutrient factors — from the bean's coating.

Fermented soy products become nutritionally enhanced, more bioavailable, and reduce certain cancer risks… while promoting heart and bone health and relieving menopausal symptoms. During the fermentation process, the enzymes produced by the bacteria and yeast break down and become easier to digest. This makes the protein content of unfermented soy protein easier to digest also.

A study of cultured miso concluded that this fermented soy produces its own unique anti-carcinogenic activity by strongly inhibiting the formation of cellular mutations. I was glad to hear that, since I like miso soup.

In addition to reducing the risk of certain kinds of cancer, fermented soy gets credit for lowering cholesterol, reducing chronic pain, lowering blood pressure, and alkalinizing blood.

How to enjoy the benefits of fermented soy...

You may not be familiar with fermented soy products, so here's a quick rundown about a few options you may want to experiment with.

Natto — Fermented soybeans with a sticky texture and a strong, cheese-like flavor. Loaded with nattokinase — a very powerful blood thinner — it's the world's best source of vitamin K2, as well as a quality source of the beneficial bacteria called bacillus subtilis. You can find it in most Asian grocery stores.

Tempeh — A fermented soybean cake with firm texture and a nutty, mushroom-like flavor.

Miso — A fermented soybean paste with a salty, buttery texture… often used in miso soup.

Soy Sauce — Caution! Traditionally soy sauce was made with fermented soybeans, salt and enzymes. But many varieties on the market today are made artificially using a chemical process, not the traditional fermented process.

Haelan — Discussed in the following section…

It's often said that natto takes a little getting used to for most Americans, because of its strong taste. In fact, I know a Japanese-American who thinks the stuff is pretty foul. There are nattokinase food supplements available for people who don't want to eat natto. If you want to check out a nattokinase supplement, click here. Please take note: the supplements probably don't contain other nutrients (such as beneficial bacteria) that are found in whole natto. They just contain one enzyme extracted from natto.

Compared to natto, the word on the street is slightly different for tempeh and miso.

A quick online search revealed numerous tempeh recipes to try, such as barbeque tempeh sandwiches, tempeh ratatouille, vegetarian sloppy joes, and more. One piece of advice… use the freshest tempeh available for best and tastiest results.

Likewise, you can find numerous miso recipes online, as well as entire print cookbooks. Recipe ideas range from miso soup(s) to salad dressings, and miso-glazed salmon to BBQ miso chicken… and more.

Bear in mind that with fermented soy foods, a little goes a long way. The Chinese and Japanese eat only about one ounce of fermented soy food on a daily basis. It's a condiment or flavoring, not something you stuff yourself with.

For this reason (and this is just my conjecture) Asians aren't getting the massive doses of estrogens that Americans ingest by eating hundreds of grams of unfermented soy. In health food stores and Chinese restaurants I've often encountered chunks of unfermented tofu as big as children's blocks. The Asians, I'm told, don't eat it that way.

When fermented soy foods are used in small amounts they help build the inner ecosystem — the "good" bacteria and yeast in your colon. Fermented soy provides your colon with a wealth of friendly microflora that aid digestion, boost immunity, and help with the assimilation of nutrients.

Fermented soy as a cancer treatment…

Haelan is a fermented soy anti-cancer product. Walter Wainright, PhD, is an expert on this subject, and is with the Haelan Research Foundation (

Wainright points out that the chemo drug Avastin costs $100,000 — and perhaps extends life for two to six months, with extreme side effects.

Haelan, on the other hand, costs approximately $900 for an effective course — with NO side effects. Wainright declared, "Fermented soy is for the ugly cancers."

As noted in our last issue, Dr. Ursula Jacob uses Haelan at her clinic in the Black Forest.

Haelan Products, Inc. began in 1989 — when Lesly Todesco learned of a fermented soy product manufactured and sold in China that had worked wonders for a friend of hers.

She and her husband Joe decided the product should be made available in the U.S. They began selling it, and incorporated their company in the Pacific Northwest. Since then, Haelan Products has built a good reputation in the field of nutrition.

They select beans based on the maximum available nutrition. They take geographical area and soil quality into account, with beans harvested at the peak of nutritional value. The soybeans used to manufacture their Haelan 951 drink are processed through a patented fermentation process under carefully controlled conditions.

This sets Haelan 951 apart from other soy beverages. The differences are noticeable in both the protein and phyto-nutrients provided. They are proven to be readily digested.

The ingredients in Haelan 951 include mineral water, cultured soy powder, potassium phosphate, yeast, calcium carbonate, sodium chloride, and sodium selenate — and absolutely no artificial colorings or flavoring.

Fermented, yes — unfermented, no

Overall, the evidence seems to point to fermented soy as a product to safely include in your diet in moderation — but not so with 'regular' soy.

Unfermented soy should be banished from your diet… hands down. Read labels, because it's in nearly everything even remotely processed (including dark chocolate, which contains soy protein isolate). Skip it — it's not worth the health risks. Be sure you're consuming the ONLY soy your body can benefit from.

By all means, feel free to include one ounce per day of fermented soy, if you enjoy consuming it. In moderation only!

When it comes to Haelan, I'd like to see more clarification of the genistein/estrogen issue before making it my first choice as a cancer treatment. As a male, I'm not looking for added estrogen. Since I've just encountered this treatment, I need to learn more.

Haelan's website says that one-fourth to one-half an eight ounce bottle each day is a "maintenance" dose (for someone not seriously ill). As you have to expect in the case of any nutritional supplement, the website makes no claims as to whether Haelan is useful in treating cancer or other diseases. The site recommends very large doses of Haelan for patients with an acute condition.

More information about Haelan was included with our newsletter last Wednesday. If you missed that issue, please scroll down to have a look at it now.

Here's what you do for the "ugly cancers"

(Second of two reports on the 2011 Evidence-based Complementary & Alternative Cancer Conference held in West Palm Beach, Florida)

by Andrew Scholberg

Dr. Walter Wainright, a Ph.D. researcher, presented a remarkably potent remedy that devastates cancer cells without pulling down the immune system or killing healthy cells. It's a fermented soy product I'd never heard of before: Haelen. Dr. Wainright declared that "fermented soy is for the ugly cancers."

An ugly cancer requires an equally serious remedy -- not a remedy like high-dose chemo or radiation that destroys your immune system while indiscriminately killing your body's healthy cells, but a powerful natural remedy. This could be it.

Secret of People Who Don't Get Cancer

A century ago, a British doctor stumbled across a remote and isolated tribe at the extreme northern end of India. He lived among the tribe members for seven years to learn the secret of their robust health.

In 1921, Oxford University published this doctor's remarkable findings.

He reported that the tribe members were "unsurpassed" in freedom from disease. Cancer was unknown in this tribe. The doctor also discovered they had a long life expectancy.

He also noted a peculiar thing about what they ate: they ate a great deal of a certain highly nutritious food. And get this: It's a food that most people in the U.S. and Europe throw away! Why?? Because hardly anybody knows it's good to eat — and good for you, too!

Click here to keep reading, because this food is one of the most important secrets we've found to preventing cancer AND curing it if you've already got it.

Unlike Dr. Wainright, I'm not a scientist. I'm only a layman, like most of the people reading this article. I regret to admit that just about everything Dr. Wainright said in explaining how Haelen works sailed right over my head. But fortunately I was sitting next to Ursula Jacob, M.D., one of Germany's top cancer doctors. Immediately after Dr. Wainright's talk, I turned to Dr. Jacob and asked her, "Does he know what he's talking about?" She said yes. She uses Haelen at her clinic in Germany's Black Forest.

Haelen has no side effects, it's cheap, and it's easy to get.

Compare Haelen to the popular chemo drug Avastin, for example. Avastin costs an astounding $100,000. The benefit of Avastin for all this money? Studies purport to show that Avastin could extend someone's life a couple of months -- perhaps as much as five months. And Avastin has severe side effects.

By contrast, Haelen costs only $900 for an effective course of treatment: less than one penny on the dollar compared to Avastin. It's effective against cancer -- even ugly cancers. And it has no side effects.

Make no mistake: there's no silver bullet against cancer. But there are quite a few effective therapies that work well when used together to get rid of cancer: Haelen, high dose vitamin C, detox therapies, DMSO, laetrile, etc.

The next issue of this newsletter will carry an in-depth report on fermented soybean products (including Haelen) and their remarkable benefits.

Americans still go to Mexico for laetrile

Laetrile was one of the topics Dr. Ralph Moss addressed in his talk at the conference. Late in the 1970s, about 70,000 Americans went to Mexico to get laetrile because news of its effectiveness against cancer leaked out.

Incredible as it sounds, Dr. Moss pointed out that the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Zion, Illinois, was giving Laetrile and DMSO in the late 1970s. Laetrile was freely prescribed -- right here in America! No longer is that the case.

Laetrile is now verboten in America, and any American doctor who prescribes or recommends it can expect a huge hassle from the government or from the medical board or from both. Doctors who've given laetrile to their patients have been given free room and board -- in other words, prison.

No wonder so many Americans still go to Mexico for cancer treatment. For more information about the top Mexican cancer clinics in safe, secure areas, check out my Special Report, Adios, Cancer.

Even though the Cancer Treatment Centers of America doesn't offer laetrile any more, it's still better than the conventional cancer hospital because it offers some alternative therapies plus nutrition and counseling. For information about the top alternative cancer clinics in America, see my Special Report Cancer Breakthrough USA.

Ignoramus gives Marisa six months to live

One of the most dramatic stories I heard at the conference was from Marisa Harris, a stage four pancreatic cancer survivor. Marisa's conventional doctor told her, "Nothing can be done. You have four to six months to live." Then, after giving her this death sentence, he quizzed her and said, "You're not going to do any of that alternative stuff, are you?" She replied, "Of course not!" He patted her shoulder and said, "Good girl."

Not only was that doctor an ignoramus, but also -- please pardon me for saying this -- he was a pompous ass!

Fortunately Marisa found another doctor with two important qualifications: humility and useful information. The new doctor asked her, "Do you really want to live?" "Yes," she replied. The doctor responded, "How much are you willing to do?" "Everything," she said. The doctor pointedly asked, "Are you sure?"

What filled Marisa with a bright ray of hope were the new doctor's words: "There's so much you can do! Doctors don't even know when they're going to die. How can any doctor possibly know when you're going to die?"

Amen! Any doctor who gives patients just months to live is a fool, pure and simple. No doctor knows the future. Only God knows how many months someone has to live.

To beat cancer, the patient needs a robust immune system and vibrant health. Mark Kaylor gave a talk on what cancer patients can take to achieve radiant health, a remedy he called the "missing element" in health and healing. Getting rid of a disease counts for something, but what if the patient still feels "blah" or even rotten? Medicinal mushrooms are a powerful remedy that can help bring back one's pep, vitality, and enthusiasm for life.

Kaylor said that three different mushrooms have a dramatic effect for better health: 1) Eating 9 to 12 shitake mushrooms a day is an anti-fungal that also revitalizes the liver. 2) Chaga mushrooms are extraordinarily strong and show great promise for strengthening your constitution. In fact, the body of the 5,000-year-old "Iceman" of the Alps was found with a medicine pouch containing similar mushrooms. 3) Kaylor's favorite is the reishi mushroom, which is good for sleep, and for the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys -- just about everything.

Dr. Troy Sanford, N.D., spoke about water ionizing machines that activate hydrogen, which scavenges free radicals. He said 15 percent of Japanese homes have water ionizers, which create "living water." Like an inflated balloon, this water has energy, according to Dr. Sanford. It's an easy way to alkalize your diet.

Dr. Sanford said that your body will alkalize your blood -- one way or the other. But if your body has to rob calcium from your bones and magnesium from your muscles to accomplish this, it would be at a high price. Instead of forcing your body to rob Peter to pay Paul, drinking alkalized water will make it easy for your body to alkalize your blood. The by-product of the ionizing machine is acidic water, which is useful for washing food because it kills food-borne pathogens -- even E. coli. He says you can get a good water ionizer for about $2,000.

Nutrition can cure even brain cancer, study proves

Believe it or not, eating the right foods alone is enough to beat some cancers. In Dr. Jeanne Wallace's talk, she cited a study that involved 341 glioblastoma brain cancer patients. This is an ugly cancer -- the kind that killed Senator Ted Kennedy. Glioblastoma is considered a death sentence, and hardly any patients are alive a year or two after their diagnosis. But with good nutrition, an astounding 15 percent of the 341 patients were still alive after five years!

That's the astonishing difference good nutrition can make. What does Dr. Wallace recommend you should eat? She highly recommends things like cinnamon, blueberries, cammomile tea, black walnuts, and oat bran.

Dr. Wallace also listed the ingredients of her "superfood" salad: garlic/onions, parsley, avocado, flaxseed meal (fresh ground flaxseeds for which you need a spice grinder in your kitchen), fresh squeezed lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil.

To quench inflammation, Dr. Wallace recommends curcumin and resveratrol -- not one or the other but both.

Another speaker, Dr. Helayne Waldman, gave her recipe for an anti-inflammatory "Cream of Green" soup:

  • Four cups of fresh green veggies (broccoli florets and/or asparagus and/or green beans and/or chard and/or greens of your choice)
  • Two cups of organic chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • One cup of organic coconut milk
  • One large onion, fried
  • Add garlic to taste
  • Be creative with your spice rack, adding curry or curcumin or ginger or oregano, etc.
  • Blend everything

Dr. Waldman urged the audience members to give their overtaxed livers some help! She mentioned three things anyone can do: 1) Take olive oil mixed with fresh lemon juice with your salad or at bedtime. 2) Take hot water with lemon in the morning. 3) Take milk thistle extract -- available at any health food store — for good liver health.

The best way to promote intestinal health, Dr. Waldman said, is to eat raw kraut -- the kind that has to be kept under refrigeration in the store. Not only is kraut (fermented cabbage) a cruciferous vegetable, but in its fermented state it's jam-packed with the probiotics your intestines need for optimal health. Raw sauerkraut is expensive to buy, but it's cheap and easy to make at home. "Raw kraut is fabulous. You can't beat it," she said.

Dr. Waldman also addressed a topic cancer patients must consider: dental health. Because root canals and other jaw infections can cause cancer -- even cancers of the breast and prostate! -- these dental problems must be solved. Conventional dentists -- i.e., those who are doing the root canals in the first place -- may not be of much help. To find a biological dentist, Dr. Waldman recommends this website:

Another excellent resource is Cancer Defeated's Special Report The Secret Poison in Your Mouth. This 53-page guide provides numerous resources for finding a good biological dentist — plus much other information about the bad dental work that's destroying the health of millions. Most alternative cancer experts consider mercury fillings and root canals to be prime causes of cancer. In fact, one famous Swiss clinic told us that nearly ALL breast cancer patients have had a root canal.

No one who attended the 2011 Annie Appleseed conference would deny that there's so much a "terminal" cancer patient can do to live in good health for years. The speakers who gave their testimonials proved this point.
