Benarkah Soya merbahaya kepada kesihatan? Kata seorang kawan kepada saya;

"Hang nak anak hang putih melepak tak?"
"Nak .. ada petua ke?" tanya saya.
"Suh bini hang time ngandung minum air soya!" gitulah petua yang diberikan kepada saya.

Dan saya ... kerana ilmu yang saya dapat itu, saya juga war-warkan perkara yang sama kepada bapak2 yang bininya mengandung. Tetapi rupanya ... saya SALAH! Soya sebenarnya merbahaya kepada kesihatan! Dan ia tidak baik untuk kesihatan wanita. Dan yang menggerunkan saya ialah .. ia juga dikenal-pasti antara penyebab kanser.... benarkah dakwaan ini?

Soya Merbahaya Kepada Kesihatan?

Saya antara peminat soya, malah seluruh keluarga juga minat soya .... dan sebagai orang berketurunan jawa... soya dianggap penting .. apatah lagi ia bahan utama untuk kicap ... yang sememangnya jadi rebutan bila berada di meja makan!

Saya bukan bercerita nak hancurkan bisnes pakcik Atan kat pasar malam yang jual air soya ... Ohh tidak sama sekali. Saya juga bukan nak suruh anda semua jangan beli kicap .. atau lupakan resepi daging masak kicap. Saya tidak berniat begitu. Saya ingin sampaikan perkara yang baru saya tahu ... dan mungkin juga anda. Entri ini dibuat adalah kerana saya terbaca artikel ini:

"Something to take note of. This is my true story, nothing altered. These are facts, as they relate to my experience, my opinions based on what I have read and felt. I am relating them to warn other young health-conscious women who are unwittingly harming themselves.

In 1989, I graduated from high school in Texas and couldn't wait to hit the big college city. One of the changes I wanted to make was to eat healthier. Once I moved to health-conscious Austin, Texas, I began to fortify my body with the best and healthiest foods I could find. Tofu was the main ingredient in every healthy dish and I bought soya milk almost every day. I used it for everything from cereal to smoothies or just to drink for a quick snack. I bought soya muffins, miso soup wth tofu, soyabeans, soyabean sprouts, etc.

All the literature in all the health and fitness magazines said that soya protected you against everything from heart disease to breast cancer. It was the magical isoflavones, the estrogen-like hormones that all worked to help you stay young and healthy . I looked great, I was working out all the time, but my menstrual cycle was off. 

At 20, I started taking birth control pills to regulate my menstrual cycle. In addition to this I began to suffer from painful periods. I began to get puffy, it was as though I was losing my muscle tone. I began to suffer from depression and getting hot flashes. I mistook all this for PMS since my periods were irregular. By the time I was 25, my periods were so bad I couldn't walk. The birth control pills never made them regular or less painful so I decided to stop taking them. I went on like this for another two years until I realized my pain wasn't normal. At 27, my gynecologist found two cysts in my uterus. Both were the size of tennis balls. I went through surgery to have them removed and thank God they were benign. The gynecologist told me to go back on birth control pills. I didn't.

In 1998, he discovered a lump in my breast. Again, I went through surgery and again it was benign. In November 2000 my glands swelled up and my gums became inflamed. Thinking I had a tooth infection i went to the dentist who told me that teeth were not the problem. After a dose of antibiotics the swelling still did not go down. At this point I could feel a tiny nodule on the right side of my neck. I told my mother I had thyroid trouble. She think I was being silly. No one in the family suffered from thyroid trouble.

Going on a hunch I saw a specialist who diagnosed me with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma. After a series of tests he told me it was cancer. My fiance and I sat stunned. We were not prepared and I was so scared. We scheduled surgery right away. The specialist told us that it would only be after the operation that a pathologist would be able to tell us for sure if it was cancer. They found a tumor at my right lobe composed of irregular cells and another smaller tumor growing on the left, so the entire thyroid was removed. They told me that after undergoing radioactive iodine I would be safe and assured me that I could live a long life. 

After treatment I began to search for the cause of all these problems. I never once thought it could be all the soya I had consumed for nearly ten years. After all, soya is healthy. I came upon a web page that linked thyroid problems to soya intake and the conspiracy of soya marketed as a health food when in fact it is only a toxic by-product of the vegetable oil industry.
This was insane, afterall, the health and fitness magazines had said nothing about soya being harmful. I visited a herbalist who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 1985.She informed me that soya was the culprit. She had a hysterectomy due to cysts and other uterine problems. A few months later another acquaintance who had consumed soya came down with thyroid cancer. A girl in England I met through the internet in a thyroid cancer forum had just undergone surgery and she was only 19.

What was going on ?

Breast cancer is linked to estrogen. What mimics estrogen in the female body, SOYA! But I never suspected soya because until now I never once found a single article that stated soya could be dangerous. Women who took soya prior to thyroid problems will continue to take it after if they are not aware of what soya actually does, what it contains and how it reacts in the female body. I think this is the reason that women with thyroid cancer often develop breast cancer later.

My co-worker is big into soya and I see her losing hair and gaining weight despite a walking workout during her break and after work, and apples and oranges for lunch. She just had cysts removed from her uterus too. I warn her to stay off soya. I refer her to websites but until it is on the evening news on all four networks, women will suffer. Since the thyroidectomy. I do not touch soya, haven't for two years.

Dear readers, please use my story in any way you can. There are so many young girls who are consuming soya because they think they are taking care of themselves, and women taking soya because they want to be healthy. It is so unfair that the information about the dangers of soya isn't more widely circulated. It is sad. There are many out there who feel this way and it is a terrible blow when you realize you are not as healthy as you thought and that the information that you depended on was wrong.

Kemudian, saya cari pula mana-mana blogger yang ada buat entri serupa dan saya jumpa:

Kemudian saya cari pula pendapat pakar ... apa kata mereka mengenai soya?
Dr Zubaidi

Kesimpulannya .... soya mungkin antara faktor ketidaksuburan kerana adanya kandungan kimia yang dipercayai boleh menjejaskan hormon. Ia boleh diambil tetapi janganlah secara berlebihan ... ibarat gula juga .. boleh diambil tapi jangan lebih. Begitulah ... kalau sesuatu benda ..bila dah ambil lebih .. maka bukan khasiat yang dapat ... tapi kecelakaan.

Harap lepas ini sentiasa beringat. Jangan undang perkara tak baik .... uhh tanak dah saya war2kan pasal minum air soya dapat anak cerah dah .... adehhh .....
