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 – see attached listing. We 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, we urge you to contact the Weston A. Price Foundation at westonaprice_soy (at) verizon.net . Upon receipt of your e-mail, we will forward you, via e-mail with attachments, a questionnaire and release form. We urge you 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 order that we might gather relevant medical records 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 we conclude 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 us to conduct a preliminary investigation of the circumstances of your potential claim, without cost or obligation to you, then promptly contact us at westonaprice_soy (at) verizon.net . We hope to be able to assist you in this matter, if our 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.
