    As a vegan I eat a lot of soy products but after reading this, looks like imma bout to starve...lol. We live in a consumer processed synthetic society and have become so dependent on the system to do everything for us. We no longer grow our own food and as a result end up poisoning ourselves and our children. It's frightening the toxins and poisons we buy off the food shelves these days. Have we become lazy? Or is it that the system has us caught in such a trap that we have no choice but to be dependent on them for everything? Can we draw water from a spring? Can we grind barley or wheat to make bread?

    Mayne, I need 2 get outta the city or try to set up a farming project OR BOTH.

    Thanks for the Info Sis. I went to an African Scholar meeting where Dr. Ann Brown was speaking on soy a few years ago. They discovered that the soy when consumed by our male children actually converted to estrogene in the body...in essence it was physically effeminizing our young males due to estrogene overload. Then we wonder why they want a DING DONG instead of a YODEL.

    Indeed Bro Keita. We think we're eating healthy by choosing to become vegetarians and vegans etc only to substitute meat and fish with a product that initially was not even used for food, but used as a method of fixing nitrogen.:qqb022::SuN045::10500::poop:

    You don't need to be rich to plant some veggies and fruits.

    But yes I have done my research on soy also and it is highly processed and not good for the body in my opinion.

    Research

    In regards to the article posted, I enjoyed it's information and have heard similar findings by others in the medicinal field. A few of points made about Soy also apply to other foods we consider healthy and safe.

    For example, when the article claims that Soy contains goitrogens, (which can interfere with the thyroid gland,) keep in mind so does: Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Kale, Kohlrabe, Mustard, Rutabaga, Turnips, Millet, Peaches, Peanuts, Radishes, Spinach, Strawberries.

    The Phytic Acid / phytochemicals mentioned found in Soy are common in cereals, seeds and beans. For more information on this see
    http://www.phytochemicals.info/phytochemicals/phytic-acid.php

    What is alarming and disturbing is the rate of isoflavones occuring in Soybeans which I believe Dr. Ann Brown would have been referring to.
    Although I did not find her paper published on the internet, I did find another source http://www.westonaprice.org/soy/isoflavones.html that covers the estrogen issue of isoflavones.

    I'm going to have that drumstick for dinner tonight and leave the ground soy alone!
