He didn't even mention the breast story.

Eat soy, grow breasts, die.

Japanese eat soy all the time, but big breasts are a rarity amongst them...

OMG, these people are so stupid! [Eek!]

Since when has eating a balanced diet and excersising regularily been a "weightloss breakthough?" [Roll Eyes]

So the dumb NFBSK ate too many soy products... That doesn't make soy evil, it's just too much of a good thing.

Yeah, I remember the thread about soy preventing breast cancer too. If we're to belive both theses stories, you'll have good knockers but your thyroid's screwed.

I like the reference about soy dust from a ship's cargo making people ill -- geez, they make soy sound like the Fog, or Day of the Triffids, or something!

Whatever. I'll keep enjoying my soy milk, and burgers, and edamame - Stressa [Roll Eyes]

Hehe!

I don't know quite how anyone "enjoys" soy. It doesn't taste of much to me - I like soya milk though, but that's flavoured.

As for dust, isn't inhaling too much of any kind of dust bad for your lungs and respiratory system?

Soy tends to pick up the flavour of whatever it's cooked in or has added to it. If you cook tofu in spagetti sauce it tastes like the spagetti sauce. My husband's been using it in place of ricotta cheese in lasagna. You really can't tell the difference if you buy tofu that's the right consistancy.

Anyhow... on to the link....

A friend mentioned the Protein Power diet and the Zone diet. (snip)high levels of protein and fat with very low levels of carbohydrates (snip). I began to substitute soy protein in the form of tofu, soy milk, soy powder, soy “nutrition” bars, tempeh, soy burgers, soy sausage and so on. Unbeknownst to me, soy interferes with thyroid hormone absorption and utilization.
An Atkins Newsletter mentions that if you have thyroid problems you should limit your soy to 2 servings a day.

Even Soy Info warns against having too much soy.

As for not losing weight while eating soy... Soy is a carb. It's a bean. You have to really limit how much soy-based product you consume if you're on a low-carb diet.

Aren't a lot of the problems associated with genetically modified soy?

Course... the early puberty mentioned in one of the letters is also documented in girls who experience early-onset puberty. (reference: http://www.healthcoalition.ca/hormones.html)

"Soy tends to pick up the flavour of whatever it's cooked in or has added to it."

That's my point.
