SUBJECT : URGENT : ABC 20/20 : The untold story : SOY. on June 9, 2000
Dear Friends ,
We were so shocked to see ABC 20/20 report on SOY by Mr. Brian
Ross (an investigator for ABC) which was prestaged to interview two of
the FDA "scientists" questioning (or attacking ??? ) soy's health
We just realized how much the country appears to be controlled by the
dairy industry especially the big media and big scientists are
particularly vulnerable and seem to become those industry's targets for
The ABC's story :
Just not long ago (Sep 22, 1998), Barbara Walters was reporting
the Soy products "FIGHT CANCER DIRECTLY " by interviewing some people
had cancer in the past and now who are deeply benefited from the soy.
One of them was Michael Milken. Once he said without Tofu , he would
been already dead. Dr. Rivlin, noted cancer specialist also concluded
that "SOY PRODUCTS DO FIGHT CANCER DIRECTLY. " in Barbara Walters
There are numerous research articles on health benefits with
consumption of soy, even reducing the cancer. (example:
"Americans will not reduce their rates of cancers, cardiovascular
diseases and other chronic degenerative diseases until they shift from
animal-based diet to a plant-based diet."----said Dr. T. Colin Campbell,
a world renowned Nutritional Biochemist, at Cornell University.
In May 1998, in the last edition of Dr. Spock's Baby and Child
Care Dr. Spock encourages parents not to send their children down the
road of meats, dairy products , and junk food and instead to serve
healthy, vegetarian foods at home.
"A diet free of meat and dairy products will almost completely
eliminate the risk of those life-endangering diseases, eg.: heart
diseases, strokes, some cancers, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis etc."
--- said Dr. Michael Klaper, M.D., Director of "Institute For Nutrition
Education & Research".
The entire country just started its healing from the MEAT AND
DAIRY dark clouds which kills 1.4 millions of Americans each year due to
the high cholesterol and high saturated fat from all animals sources
foods by inflicting millions of Americans with obese, heart
diseases(nearly one million died each year) , cancers, diabetes, strokes
(more than 220,000 death per year in this country).... ........ .
Dairy industry spends millions of millions dollars in
advertisement and promotion everywhere in everyway possible ....
including "influencing" scientists ......... They do NOT even allow
little soy to be called "milk" even though they are more superior milk
everyshape . Because they are so afraid the Soy may become one of the
main stream food to replace the dairy products ! We can understand
some FDA scientists are so much sided with the dairy industry and try
hard to attack the little plant . Even the Secretary of Health Donana
Shalala posed with white mustache and big smile for the Dairy industry
the 2 feet colored photos. However, we never thought about big media
possibly join their bend wagon to attack little soy--- the savior for
millions of Americans .
Soy was always the main stream food in the Orient. They had the
least of breast cancers, heart diseases before they started to change to
deadly Western Diet.
We are extremely worried. Our nation will sink even deeper to
the blood pit of MEAT AND DAIRY.....which those industry kill every male
calf by stealing their "milk" from their mother to sell to the consumers
and eventually killing all of the dairy cows when there is no more milk
and profit to be squeezed. (to understand more of this cruelty, please
The human babies are fed with Cow's milk and at the end the dairy
industry kills all our foster mothers !!! It is the biggest tragedy
our times for the entire nation.
If without soy isoplavones, many of us would have severe hot
flash(Because we refuse to take possible cancer causing agent Estrogen).
Thanks to the soy so much, it relieves our hot flash almost entirely.
One of the nurses from a Gynecologist locally said she took estrogen
hormone and feel the pain in her breast . But after she started to drink
soy milk daily, she said her pain is completely stopped. There are many
documented examples on the health benefits on soy.
The modern day dairy products have so many problems. (To know
more about dairy , please click: <http://www.notmilk.com>www.notmilk.com
We also listed some at the bottom of this letter) ABC 20/20
investigator raised big problems on soy based on just 2 people's
arguments in front of the entire nation and at the most golden time,
millions of Americans saw it and remember what it said in the
20/20. However, we have never seen ABC 20/20 raised health risk
problems on dairy products , or did we miss it ? It seems the bigger
the health organization or media , the less they mention about the
risks on "dairy" products. The dairy industry's "influence" can be
from here so clearly ! Far and Deep !
In one of the recent National Public Radio's programs, Dr. Neal
Barnard talked about the link between the food industry and the
scientists . His remarks : "The egg industry, the dairy industry, the
meat industry, ... they are all there. They've got the money. And their
biggest allies and best allies are scientists..... There is tremendous
pressure on a researcher to come up with industry friendly findings. If
you don't , you're never going to get re-funded..... "
He continued " ....The press release will usually say who paid
it (the study), But once it is reported on radio, on television, that
get lost. And what's remembered in the mind of the viewer, of the
listener, of the reader, sometimes , is just what bottom line industry
wanted you to have, and that it plugged in its PR machine to get into
your mind.... Besides actually paying for studies, it can also put you
a paid advisory board. It can pay for you to give a special lecture.
can send you on a nice trip. It can give you a consulting fee. And
the bigger the industry, the more of these they do. And they go right
to the top." (Dr. Neal Barnard is the founder of "Physicians Committee
for Responsible Medicine", Web site : <http://www.pcrm.org>www.pcrm.org)
Well , now you should know what is going on for the rest ?
Please contact ABC and 20/20 for your being shocked for such a
twisted report and politely demand them to address the health risks of
dairy products to humans. Also address the health benefits of little
soy. Try to make email short and to the point ! Let them know it is for
the sake of 1.4 millions of Americans death each year paid to the high
cholesterol diet which only exists in animals sources foods---mainly
and dairy. (The ABC contact info. is at the bottom of this email).
It is important to tell them your personal experience too on the
health benefits with soy. PLEASE URGE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS AND MEMBERS
TO WRITE TO ABC.
Remember : ALWAYS BE POLITE AND SERIOUS.
Thanks so much. Your letter is so important and will make a big
difference to turn the tide for the better.
P.S.: Some health risks of dairy products can be seen from the following
statements from various sources . This is only for your references :
"Large numbers of nonwhite Americans have trouble digesting milk and
dairy products. While 25 percent of Americans are lactose intolerant
figure worldwide is 75 percent) , members of minority groups are
disproportionately affected. ----------(Source: Dr. R. Grand , Tufts
University Medical School. Also seen on June 29, 1999, Science/Health ,
New York Times ).
"Milk" does NOT protect bones fractures. According to new data from the
Harvard Nurses Study. The study recruited a group of 77,761 women who
between 34 and 59 years of age when the study began in 1980, and
them for the next 12 years. (SOURCE: "Good Medicine" by "Physicians
Committee for Responsible Medicine" , Vol. VI, NO. 4, Fall, 1997).
"Milk & other Dairy products" contain a substantial amount of protein
which can enhance renal calcium losses". ( "Science", Volume 264, P.
"Ovarian cancer is linked to dairy products. When dairy product
consumption exceeds the enzymes capacity to break down galactose, there
a build-up of galactose in the blood, which may affect a woman's
Some women have very low levels of these enzymes, and when they consume
dairy products on a regular basis, their risk of ovarian cancer can be
triple that of other women."----Dr. Daniel Cramer and his colleagues at
Harvard. Lancet 1989:2:66-71
"Growing kids can get the calcium the need from leafy green vegetables,
soy milk and beans, rather than from cow's milk and dairy products,
are too high in fat and can aggravate conditions such as asthma and
chronic ear infections."----Dr. Benjamin Spock (The last issue of his
and Child Care before his death.).
"Studies have shown that breast cancer rates correlate with dairy
consumption." (Source: "Milk and Breast Cancer" from "Good Medicine" ,
The "American Academy of Pediatrics" concluded exposure to cow's milk
protein may indeed be an important factor in the development of
on-set diabetes, based on the more than NINETY(90) Studies. (Source:
Medicine", 1997) "Insulin-dependent diabetes(Type I or child-hood-onset)
is linked to dairy products. " (Source: Scott FW. "Cow milk and
insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus" American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition , 1990;51:489-91) "Milk protein causes an immune reaction in
diabetic children."(Source: The Lancet)
"The biotech hormone(Bovine Growth Hormone) induces a marked and
increase in levels of insulin-like growth factor-1, or IGF-1, in cow's
milk.....IGF-1 induces rapid division and multiplication of normal human
breast epithelial cells in tissue cultures. It is highly likely that
promotes transformation of normal breast epithelium to breast cancer.
IGF-1 maintains the malignancy of human breast-cancer cells, including
their invasiveness and ability to spread to distant organs...."

Epstein, Los Angeles Times, Mar. 20, 1994. Dr. Epstein is a professor at
the University of Illinois School of Public Health and Chairman of the
Cancer Prevention Coalition, Inc.) (note: US has the highest consumption
of dairy products and highest rate of Breast cancer on earth !)
