SOY INFANT FORMULA: Possible Legal Action


Possible Legal Action

Fineprint Issue 17 Autumn 2001-05-23

NZ LAW firm Johnston Lawrence is gearing up to represent New Zealanders with health problems alleged to have been caused by soy infant formula. Roger Chapman of Johnston Lawrence explains.

Many people believe that soy products are natural and "good for us". This applies particularly to soy infant formula, used by many parents to feed babies and young children who were allergic to human or cow's milk, or simply because they believe it is better. Soy infant formula has been readily available at supermarkets and pharmacies for many years.

Scientists from the United States Food and Drug Administration and elsewhere have reported, however, that soy contains agents that have the potential to cause human thyroid and reproductive disorders. There is scientific evidence - much of it based on New Zealand research - that infants fed on soy infant formula are exposed to high levels of these agents and are at risk of developing these disorders in later life.

Thyroid disorders include goitre and auto-immune thyroid disease. Symptoms include inability to control weight, chronic tiredness or lethargy, low body temperature, hair loss and dry skin. Reproductive disorders include premature maturation, infertility and hormone imbalances.

The Ministry of Health has issued warnings to feed soy-based products to infants only on medical advice. Regulatory agencies in Australia and the United Kingdom have given similar warnings. Despite this, soy infant formula is still widely used in New Zealand.

New Zealanders who have suffered health problems from soy infant formula may now be taking legal action. Recent nationwide advertising on behalf of Johnston Lawrence clients for people affected drew hundreds of responses.

If you or your children were fed soy infant formula and have suffered from thyroid or reproductive disorders, Johnston Lawrence would like to hear from you. Please write to:
