Something that all the soy bashers (Weston Price Institute, Mercola and the like) should take in consideration. A 20 some years long study about the effects of phyto-estrogens in soy based infant formula on 1500 male babies, recently ended was and published here in Israel . It conclusively found that there was no measurable difference between those fed with soy, mother's milk or cow's milk. Those babies were followed for over 20 years until they eventually grew up to be young men and were found with no statistically relevant difference from the milk-fed ones. Last month, the Israeli Health Ministry removed the soy products maximum comsuption recommendations that were enacted in 2003, concluding years of fear-monging and misrepresentation by special interests.
The anti-soy propaganda is sometimes overwhelming and with enough money(Think beef lobby) and so-called nutrition experts to repeat the mantra time after time, it becomes the accepted standard. Let's be a little more circumspect on all the hype being pushed on us. This also should include statements made on the supposed health benefits of the herb of the day.
