New Zealand lawyers have compiled an extensive database from the numerous replies they received to a few local newspaper
advertisements. There is no doubt that considerable harm is being done to
babies daily by these products, even though it may take ten years or more to
With the database already established, they, in
conjunction with lawyers in the US, intend to guage the US response. This

Soy Infant Formulas
Scientists from the US Food and Drug Administration and elsewhere have reported that soy contains agents that have the
potential to cause thyroid and reproductive disorders in humans.
There is scientific evidence that infants fed on soy infant formula are
exposed to high levels of these agents, and are accordingly at risk of
developing these disorders in later life. Thyroid disorders include goiter
and auto-immune thyroid disease, symptoms of which include inability to
control weight, chronic tiredness/lethargy, low body temperature, hair loss,
dry skin. Reproductive disorders include premature maturation, infertility
and hormone imbalances.
If you or your children were fed soy infant formula and have suffered from a
thyroid disorder and/or a reproductive disorder, you or your children may be
able to recover damages for those injuries
