Soy Toxicity In Poultry Meat And Eggs;
Ask your grower to select better feeds.

(Remedy to remove soy toxicity is in last paragraph)
Eliminate Soy Toxicity In Poultry Meat And Eggs: Many poultry feeds contain antibiotics, hormones, arsenic and toxic soy protein. The reasons that arsenic is used in feed are to keep insects and rodents from eating feeds, and as an antibiotic. Antibiotics are used to suppress symptoms of and hide diseases. Hormones and soy proteins are used to hasten and increase growth. All of those compounds are toxic and dangerous, causing diseases, including cancer, heart, osteoporosis and diabetes. I covered Arsenic in my accompanying article, "Arsenic In Poultry Meat And Eggs; Another Cancer Connection". Here, of course, the topic is soy.
Soy must be treated to alter natural substances in it that cause sickness or death to poultry and humans when eaten. The beans must be bathed in acidic baths and heated at extreme temperatures. Then they spray-dry it with nitrates to produce protein powder, and add artificial (chemical) flavorings, MSG, preservatives, sweeteners and other synthetic ingredients to trick the pallet of poultry and humans to eat the toxic matter.
According to Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, MD, nitrates have been known for decades to cause cancer, yet the FDA allows them in many foods. Soy contains many phytoestrogens, IGg and trypsin inhibitor that have caused cancers and inhibited growth in hundreds of animals. There are many websites that site toxicity and tests utilizing soy chemicals. Search: "Soy toxic".
Poultry, especially chicken fed high ratios of soy protein to increased meat and egg production, taste unappetizing. The more soy in the feed, the blander and oddly unappealing is the taste. Fifty years ago, the population would have rejected eggs and poultry meat that tasted like that. Poultry grown on mainly corn and other grains is rich and healthy-tasting, as well as health-giving.
Very often, poultry meat and eggs that are labeled organic are fed mainly soy, such as Rosie Organic Chicken. It is not only a misnomer, it is an outright advertising fraud. Even though the soy that is fed to its chickens was organically grown, when the soy is processed with chemicals and used as feed, it fails to be organic. Rosie "Organic" Chicken feeds its chickens up to 75% chemically-treated and processed soy.
To get your poultry and eggs producers to grow tastier and healthier meat and eggs, I suggest that you write to them, give them this information and ask them to feed their poultry raw meat scraps (fresh or rank poultry love rank raw meat because they are
omnivorous scavengers) for protein, and corn and other grains for delicious, flavorful and healthy meat and eggs. If they need a good mineral supplement to make eggshells stronger, suggest that they add a little Terramin clay (www.terramin.com) to their feed.
To gradually remove soy byproduct toxicity from within the body, I suggest eating a combination of 23 ounces coconut cream, 1inch cube no-salt-added raw cheese, 1 tablespoon unheated honey, 23inches section of unripe raw banana and 13 raw eggs. Eating enough raw meat daily helps remove body-stored soy protein toxicity.

Avoiding arsenic in poultry and eggs, and how to remove arsenic from the body
by aajonus vonderplanitz
Many laboratory tests have proved that arsenic causes cancer even at low levels currently found in our environment. Also, evidence suggests that arsenic contributes to other diseases, such as diabetes, heart, and decline of mental function. Humans are exposed to
arsenic directly from its natural occurrence in the earth’s crust but arsenic is mined and then used commercially. Drinking water, rice, and playground equipment are a few of the daily exposures to cancer-causing arsenic. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finally lowered its long-outdated arsenic drinking-water standard by fivefold in 2001.
Arsenic contaminates many of your favorite foods, including rice and chicken, intentionally. In this article, we focus on chicken meat and eggs. For many decades, chicken farmers have been feeding chickens arsenic to hasten and increase growth and conceal symptoms of disease at youthful stages of chicken development. Of the 8.7 billion American broiler chickens produced each year, at least 70 percent have been fed arsenic.
Some of that arsenic remains in chicken meat; the following chart shows how much by brand and cut.

Removing Arsenic Through Combinations of Raw Foods
Removing bodily storages of arsenic may be accomplished by eating combinations of raw foods, such as 1/3 cup tomato, 2 tablespoons no-salt-added raw cheese and 57 leaves of cilantro, or 23 ounces raw coconut cream, 1/2 tablespoon unsalted raw butter, 1 tablespoon raw cream (dairy cream) and 1/2 - 3/4 cup of organically-grown dark berries (such as blackberries, blue berries and boysenberries.
Simply choosing a poultry that is not fed arsenic does not resolve every toxin-issue regarding poultry. See Soy Toxicity In Poultry Meat And Eggs.
