 All Males - PLEASE pass this info to all your female friends... It

 may save their lives!




 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 and used it for everything from cereal to

 smoothies or just to drink for a quick snack. I bought soya muffins,

 miso soup with tofu, soybeans, soybean 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





 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 flushes.  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



 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 t hyroid

 trouble.. She thought 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



 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 in 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



 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, after all, 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 EnglandI met through the Internet in a thyroid



 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 sta ted 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



 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 warned her to stay off soya. I referred her to websites but until



 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.
