A hint: Anything with "soy" in the address name is probably going to be biased. Also, there have been numerous threads on this so it might just be easier to look them up.

So true. Based on all the other threads and sites I've seen, to sum it up, soy is good in moderation. Don't base your diet on it, but it's unnecessary to completely eliminate it. If you eat too much you could possibly develop an intolerance, so everything in moderation.

I've read many of those links and basically come to conclusion that soy isn't the wonder food I originally thought. Small amounts miso, tempeh and soy sauce are probably better to eat than compared to large amounts tofu, soymilk or tvp since the former was allowed to ferment to reduce the harmful chemicals inherent in the soybean. As with all legumes, soy is going to contain stuff to deter predators from eating the baby plants. Seems soy requires a little more effort than simply cooking for them to be fully edible. It is a new food choice compared to what humans have been used to eating. I prefer to stick with traditional food sources. That said I'd rather eat a slab of tofu than a slab of Burger King's fanciest burger!
