Lots put on this bean/seed. I'm not fond of it.
1. No mention of fermented soy
2, This article should be retired from the Spark roster. Please present only CURRENT research, not 13 year old information.
Needs to be reviewed/updated. No mention of how much soy is GM.
Thanks for the article. Soy consumption is something I have avoided for a long time because of fears.
Thanks for the great article! :)
I have to limit my soy consumption due to Hashimoto syndrome
soy is not one of my favorites
Who'da thunk it?
I stay away from soy as much as possible
Since this article focuses on studies, and was written in 2006, it shouldn't be considered reliable. Update or don't feature.
I like how versatile tofu is, but stopped using it when 2 people warned me about cancer risks. This article told me what I needed to hear. I ate a lot of tofu in my 40's and it was okay. But now that I'm in my 60's, an occasional, small portion is best.
In the past few years, there have been studies that show that soy is in fact harmful to the thyroid as it is a hormone disrupter.
