A friend recently posted a link on facebook to an article titled “Early soy diet may protect against breast cancer“. Overall the piece has a positive tone, but it lacking in that comprehensive of support. This made me remember years ago when there was a scare over soy products possibly causing homosexuality in children. Having grown up on soy milk and consuming lots of tofu throughout my life, I went to investigate futher.
Talks about the estrogens found within soy
The articles I found, were in complete contrast to the one my friend posted. Breast cancer was not really mentioned, but a host of problems soy can cause were. Over abundant estrogen levels, thyroid problems, and stunted maturation are some that they mentioned. Think it’s sort of late for any of us to know any of this since we’re past puberty, but still might be good to be mindful of.
