Okay, I admit it.I also got 'lost' following one of bean's fascinating links.My heads spinning with all this info!

Since my hubbie was dx with celiac disease 9 months ago I have become more and more interested in diet and nutrition.I've learnt loads already from here but I know I'm only scratching the surface!

In particular I find the topic of 'dangerous grain' and the 'paleo diet' absolutely fascinating.It all makes sense!

The 'coeliac journey' as it were is much more in depth than I first realised.

I don't believe in soy either. I makes me sick. Please research soy before you add it to your diet to replace casein.

Soy doesn't make me sick but I certainly wouldn't use it to base my diet around. I don't think it's health promoting like so many others claim. But, I don't think (in small doses) it is problematic - for those who don't have soy allergies / intolerance of course!

Here are some links on the evils of soy: http://www.google.com/custom?hl=en&lr=&ie=...www.mercola.com

Some have argued that soy is safe since it has been used by Asian cultures who eat large amounts of soy and don't have health problems because of it. The big difference is that these Asian cultures use mainly *fermented* soy products (miso, tempeh, and natto). Here in America we mainly used the fast-food equivalent of soy (soy milk, beans, etc). It's not the same. Here's another article regarding the benefits of fermented soy:


Anyway... I'm off topic again! :blink:

Sorry! You guys just give me the best chances to talk about the things that fascinate me!!

I have the book "dangerous grains". It is absolutely amazing and I recommend it for everyone, not just celiacs. It goes into how Americans and humans in general are consuming way too many grain products and how these grains are the cause of many, many health problems. It states how eliminating these grains from your diet will be better for anyone's overall health. It is a must read!!!

If you aren't allergic to soy, I think it is ok in moderation. I've read that it is not recommended for women who have estrogen based breast cancer or have a family history of the disease. However, research is showing that soy may help men with prostate cancer or help prevent it:



I eat soy, but I don't overdue it.
