Why Soy Can Harm the Thyroid and Contribute to Weight Gain

In fact, more than 70 years of scientific studies link soy to thyroid disorders, most often manifesting as hypothyroidism with its familiar symptoms of weight gain, fatigue, lethargy, malaise, thinning hair, brain fog and even loss of libido. Given that Big Ag uses soy-based feeds to fatten animals as quickly as possible, we should not be surprised that people are fattening up as well.
