I want to apologize for my previous post to this thread. In thinking about it after the fact I realize that it was not very helpful. I had just posted to another thread a few seconds prior and was sort of flustered about the whole anti-soy campaign.
Personally, I believe that most of the anti-soy information being printed is more motivated by money and business interests than by a true interest in people's health and well-being (hence my irritation every time I think about it!)
I try to consider the source of the information. A lot of this information is coming from one source- the Weston A. Price Foundation. The book- "Soy- the Whole Story" which asserts that soy will essentially cause every bad thing possible to happen to you was actually published by a publisher owned by the chair of the Weston A. Price foundation- Sally Fallon.
In looking to medical sources (please note that I am not a doctor personally, for expert advice, speak with a dietitian or nutritionist) like the WebMD and the American Dietetic Association, I get the impression that much of the miraculous benefits of soy we once thought were true have been over exaggerated, but these sources do not suggest that soy is harmful in any significant way.

I hope this helps you,
Ryan
