Don’t drink SOY MILK:
-if you are suffering from osteoporosis, critenism, goiter, or iron deficiency anemia due to its phytic acid that hampers the absorption of calcium, iodine, and iron.
- if you are an adolescent or younger and your body doesn’t require female hormone estrogen called phytoestrogens, which may cause cancer especially breast cancer to young women.
- if you have breast cancer, leukemia, or a low sperm count because of its high amounts of phytochemicals called isoflavones.
