[quote="emphryio"]If I didn't eat soy already, I wouldn't now.
Nipple discharge, breast enlargement and slight decreases in testosterone occurred with the megadoses. But "we still couldn't find anything that was serious....
Uhh, I'd consider that beyond serious!
Note the use of the word "MEGADOSES!" If you eat mega doses of potatoes you get arthritis. If you eat mega doses of apples you get wind. If you eat mega doses of anything it is bad for you. Mega doses of water can cause kidney failure!
Let me ask you a question. How many Chinese and Japanese men do you see walking around with breasts swinging about? (Sumo wrestlers aside...) These nations have been eating soy in large quantity for four thousand years, and it hasn't done them any harm! And there is far more hormones in meat.
Sorry to go off on one, but really! Mega doses are so high that you couldn't consume them except on medical advisement. Argh. Burble burble bletchit. I wish soy did give people boobs. Then we could get silly women to go veggie instead of having implants put in.
Oh yeah, and Séamus is eight - no sign of malformation on any of his bits, let me tell you. Boys at his school have breasts, cause they are overweight. Séamus has visibly cut arms, and damned good shoulders and leg muscles. No tits. I am telling the truth here! And although he has now developed modesty, there appears to be nothing wrong in the private department either. He came home from school crying a few months ago, because when he was getting changed for p.e. one of the other boys told him his "willy was too big." Maybe it's the soy...
