Re: man-manipulated


 A question. From what I've read on your stance on soy, is all soy "good" in your opinion? Across the board? Because my understanding of your viewpoint is that there is no difference between highly-processed soy and traditionally prepared soy. No difference on how it has been consumed in the past by Asians and the way it is consumed now in the US. A clarification would be appreciated as I see that this is the main point of contention between you and many here, including myself.

What I have made very clear in past posts is that I am not a big fan of GMO anything, but I am not going to be paranoid about it either.  as I have stated there are many other things in our food supply that I worry about a lot more.

As for processing this does not make something bad. Processing often just means that different components are being extracted.  Brown rice is processed to make white rice.  Wheat and corn are processed to make flours and starches.  Apples are processed to make apple fiber and pectins.  Raw sugar is made by the processing of sugar cane or beets.  Processing does not make something automatically dangerous, but this is exactly what the anti-soy propagandists seem to be implying.

Turns out that we might not share the mouses "chemistry", but we do share a great deal of their genetic sequence. Medical researchers seem to think that that's important:

Hmm....  Guess what?  We share just as much of a genetic similarity with dogs as we do mice:

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/12/1207_051207_dog_genome.html

"Scientists had previously found that about 5 percent of the human genome sequence appears in the mouse genome. The new study shows that 5 percent of the human genome is also shared with dogs."

Yet humans can eat things like chocolate, dough and grapes that can kill a dog.  And dogs can eat rotting meat that can kill a human. Again we are not mice and we are not dogs.  How something affects them IS NOT the same as it will affect us.
