What people's thoughts on soy? The only soy I eat right now is edamame (soybean pods) but I do like soy milk for extra protein. Right now we don't drink it because I've heard mixed reviews on its nutritional benefits. Thoughts?
I'd like to know this as well. I've read some nasty things about processed soy in burgers and the like, and it really has me second-guessing whether soy is a good thing to be including in my diet or not. What about roasted soy nuts?
I only eat fermented soy (miso, tempeh, natto shoyu) and no unfermented soy (tofu, soy milk, edamame... even though I really like me some tofu).
Basically its the plant estrogens that I try to stay away from. They dont know if they act the same as native estrogens in the body, or competitively inhibit native estrogens. I am sure there is a lot more to say and I am only glazing the surface, but thats why *I* dont eat it. Supposedly fermentation radically reduces the estrogens in soy.
Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!
