There might also be BAD Soy= with Glysophate
- GMO soybeans have high levels of glyphosate – June 2014
- 20 X more Parkinson's and 100X more Autism with GMO soy in China
- Huge increases in health problems – risk factors include Vitamin D, Antibiotics, and Roundup
- Note: soy does not increase risk of Breast Cancer in Japan(no GMO), but soy does in the US (GMO)
Soy milk was associated with more rickets - probably because it was not fortified with Vitamin D (in the US)- It has been fortified since about 2016
Vitamin D is known to increase Ca absorption in adults. However, the threshold vitamin D status to benefit Ca absorption is lower than the target vitamin D status for higher bone mineral density and lower fracture risk, pointing to another pathway for vitamin D to benefit bone. One possibility is by affecting osteoblast and osteoclasts directly. Vitamin D-related bone metabolism may also be affected by soy isoflavones, which selectively bind to the estrogen receptor ^6; and may reduce bone loss in postmenopausal women. We discuss a possible synergistic effect of soy isoflavones and vitamin D on bone by affecting osteoblast and osteoclast formation and activity in postmenopausal women.
