I can only give you general comments, as I dont know you or your specific medical/health issues.,

Studies done on the japanese showed that the HIGH soy eaters consumed around 56 grams of soy a day. Which provided about 7-9 grams of soy protein. Thats less than 2 oz of soy. T Colin Campbell told me that in the china study, he had similar findings, soy was more of a condiment.

So, i dont think of soy as a super food or a neccessary food nor do i think any one food should be elevated to the level of prominence that soy has been. And because of the concerns about it, i tell people that if they want to include soy, maybe no more than 1-3x a week and make it as close to the whole soy as possible.

Now, there are therapeutics reasons why soy may be used, but that is something you have to discuss with your MD and RD together.

I would be glad to help but not in the context of a public message board. If you want, go to my website and email me.

In health
