Soy Foods Strengthen Bones

soy foods strenghten bones
It is very important to know that this study was done in Japan, and that much of their food ist still grown in the old, traditional manner which returns all life wastes - and along with them the 72+ trace elements - to the soil. Consequently, much of their soy products still contain the 72+ trace elements.

This, however is not true for soy beans grown by modern chemical methods - which recognize only 8 (!!!) trace elements - and are therefore severely deficient in over 60 trace elements. Due to the pervasive ignorance of the crucially vital importance of the complete natural range of the 72+ trace elements to our health, many large-scale farms in Japan have also adopted our modern chemical agriculture. Soy beans grown by this method lack - even in Japan - over 60 trace elements, and therefore do not have the properties indicated here.

Their remaining traditional agriculture - plus their typical diet of at least one daily serving of seafood - is is the reason why the breast cancer rate in Japan is only 8 times lower than it is in the Western nations, while it is 21 times lower in Sri Lanka, where practically all of their food is grown by traditional methods.

The following is certainly not true for all soy beans grown via chemical agriculture in the Western nations. They are all severely trace element deficient, and Western-grown soy products will therefore NOT provide the results indicated in the following article.






Original Abstract:


Soy Foods May Protect Bones

In a study published in the January 2001 issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology, researchers report that postmenopausal women who consumed the most soy-based foods had the strongest bones after adjusting for the number of years since menopause began, and their weight. Very thin postmenopausal women tend to have frail bones.

Some studies have suggested that plant estrogen's in soy, known as phytoestrogens, can alleviate some of the symptoms of menopause. In particular, compounds known as is, which have a chemical structure similar to the female estrogen hormone estradiol, are thought to mimic the effects of natural estrogen.

This may be helpful during menopause when estrogen production drops. Lower estrogen levels can increase the risk of fractures and the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis, and lead to other menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, irritability, aching joints and depression, the authors note.

To investigate, the team of Japanese researchers led by Dr. Yoshiaki Somekawa estimated the intake of isoflavones in the diets of 478 postmenopausal Japanese women. Overall, heavier women and those who recently went through menopause had the thickest bones.

In both the early and late postmenopausal periods, women who consumed the highest level of isoflavones in foods such as tofu, boiled soybeans and soy milk, had significantly thicker bones than women who consumed the lowest level of isoflavones.

Women who consumed the greatest amount of isoflavones in the early postmenopausal period also had significantly fewer backaches and aching joints. But intake of isoflavones did not appear to influence menopausal symptoms in late postmenopausal, the report indicates. "High consumption of soy products is associated with increased bone mass in postmenopausal women and might be useful for preventing (low estrogen) effects,'' the authors conclude.
