organic tofu that is
no, i don't think so, i don't think organic soy is good even though it is organically grown. organic tofu may be better than "normal" tofu but it too contains a lot of powerful phytotoxins, ditto for organic canola or rapeseed. most soy have undergone irradiation in the fifties to increase their oil content. if you want to eat it, maybe just a little bit once in a while. check out my posts on soy.
i'm trying to help you, not create problems for you. facing the facts now is better than facing the misery, pain and suffering due to soy, canola/rapeseed consumption later on in your life.
you can also visit http://www.soyonlineservice.co.nz
to find out more about the cumulatively deadly effects of soy. vegetarianism shouldn't become synonymous with soy.
you can also check out the vegetarian forum in http://www.curezone.com
and find what what the vegetarians there have to say about soy. soy and canola have only been started to be promoted as the ultimate health foods in the recent decades due to american corporate interests which are making tens (or hundreds?) of billions of dollars every year from growing and selling them as health foods. don't be a sucker for modern "science"'s hypes. in countries like taiwan and the u.s.a. soy and canola oils are actually the cheapest food oil used in the food and beverage industries. in singapore because the prices of such oils cannot compete with the price of palm oil-thanks to our malaysian neighbor, they are instead marketed as up-market "healthier-choice" oils. the giant corporations have also hired scientists, nutritiionists, doctors to help them hawk those oils. isn't it wonderful that those giant phamaceutical and agro corporations hire those people to "teach" us what to eat and what not to and what drugs to use when we get sick? do you feel the "love"? lol! as for me, i feel heavy, irritable and depressed every time i eat foods that contain soy or canola. i would appreciate if you can help spread my articles and links on soy and canola to your friends.
