Soybean oil seems to be a real problem for male mice. We need more research in humans before outlawing it as dangerous toxin. If you’re eating the Standard American Diet, you’ll find it hard if not impossible to avoid. Of course, paleo diets should be naturally low in soybean oil.
New UC Riverside research shows soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes, but could also affect neurological conditions like autism, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
Used for fast food frying, added to packaged foods, and fed to livestock, soybean oil is by far the most widely produced and consumed edible oil in the U.S., according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In all likelihood, it is not healthy for humans.
