Soaps, Lotions, Medicines, and Vaccines

This doesn’t fall under the “food” category, but a reader named Susan pointed out problems she’s had with her son with hand/body cream and soaps. Because of eczema issues when our son was 6 months old, we’ve been very conscientious about all-natural soaps and lotions, so I’ve never really had to think about what’s in “ordinary” products. Apparently, soy is rather prevalent in soaps, lotions, medicines, and even vaccines.

Since Susan pointed this out, I’ve now seen soy candles. I’m not sure I even want to think about what ramifications that may have.

Just a reminder, if you’re putting it in or on your body, check it for soy, because it’s everywhere.
