If You’re Suffering From a Medical Problem Caused by Soy, you May Now be Able to Take Legal Action!
The Weston A. Price Foundation is undertaking a new initiative to investigate instances and arrange possible legal assistance for individuals who believe that they or their child may have suffered serious physical or medical consequences as a result of ingesting one or more products containing soy.
A growing body of credible medical and dietary research suggests that soy products may cause adverse medical and developmental conditions in susceptible persons, especially children — who in some instances may be affected by soy products consumed either by themselves (for instance, in baby formula) or by their mothers prior to giving birth.
The Weston A. Price Foundation is exploring the causal connection between soy and various serious conditions –in the list below. They have also sought out competent attorneys in the United States and elsewhere, who may develop medical evidence in a number of these cases to pursue damages or other appropriate remedies against the manufacturers and sellers of soy products.
If you would like to participate in these efforts, you are urged to contact the Weston A. Price Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon receipt of your e-mail, you will be forwarded via e-mail with attachments, a questionnaire and release form. You are urged to complete the questionnaire, fully and honestly, to the best of your ability. Also, please sign and return the medical authorization(s) along with the questionnaire, in the event possible relevant medical records are needed in those cases that warrant further investigation. Mailing address and fax number will be provided to you with the questionnaire.
PLEASE BE ADVISED that not all of these potential claims can or will be pursued, even if it has been determined that you or your child may have suffered some adverse effects from the consumption of soy products. It may be too late under applicable state laws to pursue some claims; and in other cases, the parties responsible for your condition may not be adequately identified, or the recoverable damages may not warrant pursuit of the responsible parties.
However, if you would like a preliminary investigation of the circumstances of your potential claim, without cost or obligation to you, then promptly contact email@example.com. By taking these steps you may receive assistance in this matter, if your inquiry develops evidence of corporate responsibility for your medical problems or those of your child.
Please forward this e-mail to anyone you think may have an interest, including other e-mail lists that you belong to.

Dr. Mercola’s Comment:
Finally, now there may be legal repercussions that could be taken against the dangerous effects of the once thought “healthy” food, soy.
I have posted several articles in the past detailing the various dangers of soy products. Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems with the widespread acceptance of soy is the billions of advertising dollars of influence in the edible oil industry, that is involved with heavily promoting soy’s use in the natural medical circles, so its use can be then promoted in the general medical public.
They have even been able to fool otherwise knowledgeable natural medicine doctors.
These actions by Weston A. Price Foundation are huge in not only addressing the growing epidemic of people suffering from reactions from taking soy products, but also allowing them to explore possible legal assistance.
I have a lot of faith in the Weston A. Price foundation and in their lobbying efforts to warn other consumers against the dangers of modern soy food and their goal to get soy formula taken off the shelves in the marketplace.
If soy products have adversely affected you or if you know of anybody who has consumed a lot of soy and has experienced negative side effects, I would strongly encourage that you read this article and then take the appropriate steps to begin a preliminary investigation of your circumstances and potential claim.
