(NaturalNews) An Illinois District Court judge has decided that a lawsuit filed against the state’s prison system for serving excessive amounts of soy in prisoner meals will move forward. Honorable Judge Harold Baker from the central district of Illinois agrees that the case itself, represented by the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAP), has validity, and that forcing high amounts of soy on prisoners in place of real meat, cheese, and other products could constitute “cruel and unusual punishment.”

According to WAP, soy began replacing other foods in the Illinois prison system back in 2002 when Rod Blagojevich was elected governor of Illinois. Prison inmates suddenly became inundated at that time with “meat” that was mixed with up to 70 percent soy protein product, and soy cheese, which quietly replaced real dairy cheese. Even the system’s baked goods began to be reformulated with high amounts of soy flour and soy protein.
