Just do a general Google search on soy and you'll be bombarded with articles questioning its real health value. Sure it has a lot of protein, but what about the negatives. I've heard things from it being really estrogenic to it being one of the largest GMO crops out here.

I'd just like to here some of the counter-arguments to this question.

soy is ok in small quantities but it is an enzyme inhibitor. Most people eat way too much of it! If you are going to eat soy, choose fermented soy products - they are much better for you. Examples: Tempeh over Tofu, Miso...

If you do a search here on veggieboards, you will find lots of threads on the subject. We're a bit bored with the subject by now, so that is probably why almost no one has responded.

Anyway, soya has been safely consumed by populations in the far east for centuries. But I agree that today's consumption is probably higher than back then. Also, it's a question of processing methods. And if you don't want to eat GM soya, then buy non-GM soya. A lot of GM soya is fed to livestock.

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)
