Quack of the week

The quack of the week winner is Jim Rutz, who is the spokesman for the worldwide house church community, founder of the open church ministries and author of such illustrious books as "The Meaning of Life". He recently earned his quack badge by writing a series of articles against soy and how it is making kids gay. I am not kidding : "Research is now showing that when you feed your baby soy formula, you're giving him or her the equivalent of five birth control pills a day. A baby's endocrine system just can't cope with that kind of massive assault, so some damage is inevitable. At the extreme, the damage can be fatal."

Unfortunately he doesn't quote the source, because I'd like to know where they found that soy can be fatal o infants. In fact the most recent research about soy and post-natal sexual development in the journal of Toxicology Science states that "
There were no effects in females dosed with 4 mg/kg genistein, the predicted exposure level for infants drinking soy-based infant formulas. There were no consistent effects on male offspring at either dose level of genistein."

So I have a hard time figuring out how Jim came to the conclusion that: "Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because "I can't remember a time when I wasn't homosexual." No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can't remember a time when excess estrogen wasn't influencing them."

Yes Jim that's what's wrong with America: Tofu. Goddam liberals and their phytoestrogens...

Quaker oats was designed for boys to keep them from enjoying solitary sexual gratification...I am not surprized by the fact that some people still think food can change potentially "deviant" sexual behaviour...silly human race!
