Personally, I have been eating soy products for over 30 years, have four children and can assure you, my testicles have not shrunk, I have not developed breasts, nor am I homosexual and my brain has certainly not been wrecked. Eating soy is a personal choice, and it is up to you to decide if soy products are right for you. Before you condemn soy, I’d like you to become a lot more informed and to read for and against arguments.
Don’t just automatically assume that eating soy will make you sick or increase your risk of cancer. You were probably using a mobile phone yesterday, and that is going to be potentially more of a health risk than many foods you will ever eat, and no doubt as phone charges drop over time you will be using it more prolonged, increasing your risk even further. Everything in life carries a risk, but believe me on this one – the fear of living and of eating specific foods because of what the may potentially do to your health will be found to be considerably more damaging to your health than the very food itself.
Every time you drive your car the risk of serious injury and death is always a possibility. And then you say: “No soy for me, it may harm my health”. I’ve long worked out that there are as many nutritional fanatics as there are religious and medical ones, and some will defend their view almost to the point of death it seems. Maybe you would consider my own personal balanced approach, take the middle path and include in your diet a wide variety of foods I have outlined in this chapter, including vegetables, meats, eggs, chicken, fish, alkaline grains, nuts and seeds, soy products, sea vegetables as well as the fermented and cultured foods.
How can you go wrong with this approach?
