3. Someone heard a medicine doctor said to eat tofu containing gypsum, it will be hard if you eat liver, this true?

Answer >

We consult with Dr. Le Thanh, Ph.D., OMD, CA and answered as follows: "Gypsum, which in English is gypsom encyclopedia Encarta Encyclopedia defines a secondary minerals are the chemical called calcium sulfate (CaSO4 2H2O). It is found in the karst (limestone), and present in almost every region of the world. In Oriental medicine, it is used to cool the plaster fever, thirst, restlessness. In the delirium of fever heat, people use the stairs Bach, composed of four herbs are: gypsum, tri form, class mothers, and licorice. In medicine this month, the plaster is key. In making tofu industry, gypsum is used to coagulate milk substance derived from soybeans and also to increase the calcium content of tofu, there is little inherent in soy milk, not enough supply for the human body (the body needs daily average of about 800 mg of calcium). Calcium is a mineral essential to the body, helps build sturdy bones, helps prevent osteoporosis in old age. Approximately 1% calcium (10 g) ion impact as a role biology plays a very important, such as membrane permeability, neuromuscular stimulation, engaged in manufacturing many kinds of enzymes, many details of hormones, prevent fatigue and convulsions. The functions that work well when the amount of calcium in the blood is kept at 95-100 mg / l. The body is not made up of calcium, so need to eat foods rich in calcium. Excess calcium in the body will be dismissed out parts of the urinary tract through the kidneys. In some people, for some reason, renal excretion is not good, will precipitate calcium and plays gravel caused kidney stones. (Liver not hard) The liver, a vital organ of the digestive tract, the organs filter toxins and substances not necessary for the task is also the.Gan secretion of bile to digest fat, it does not save calcium reserves. Liver is often hard consequences by: (1) alcohol, (2) a history of viral hepatitis A, B, C, (3) by eating foods that have toxic chemicals that the liver not filter. For example, the toxic mold foods, such as fish, wild mushrooms are poisonous. This milestone release of toxic chemicals harm the liver. Also some medications can also affect the liver, while taking these drugs, BS to monitor liver function by blood tests periodically. According to the scientists analyzed, then the tofu has no listed substances are poisons. Quality trypsin inhibitors in soybeans, is not toxic, but a slow digestion of protein, but through the process of making tofu, due to the heat treatment, it has been destroyed. As of gypsum, as mentioned above mineral calcium is essential for the body. Saying that eating more tofu? We should determine how many?

And so the body has enough time to digest tolerated. In fact today, from Japan, Korea, China v. .. v. .. and the United States again, more and more people tend to use tofu instead of meat. In the report from the medical journal, who have not seen anyone talking about a catastrophe caused by any tofu. Through the above-stated basic. We used to worry and tofu as an ingredient in food nutrition in everyday without any concerns. Not only prevent disease but also nourish the body through the beneficial effects of soy, as we have seen the results of the medical authorities competent and trustworthy.
