GWriter saidYet another reason to avoid that estrogenic ingredient!
^ Soy is a plant based food and is a phytoestrogen. Basically all plant based foods are phytoestrogenic in nature. It's not just soy.
What a very misleading and unhelpful thing to say. You imply soy is no different than broccoli or asparagus.
Here's the Wikipedia entry on phytoestrogens. Notice what keeps showing up at the top of the lists.
Not at all misleading - much plant material that we find edible (and consider staple) contains phytoestrogens
Nuts, Grains, Legumes are all high in phytoestrogens as well as fruits and sprouts (yes even Brocolli and Asparagus)
Fancy a PB+J ?- the seeds in the multigrain bread contain phytoestrogen, so does the peanut butter, and likely even the Jelly was made with berries containing Phytoestrogens.
How about Italian? Onion, Garlic, Tomato, all contain phytoestrogens.
Something Fried? Oils made from pressed seeds contain phytoestrogens too..
Damn - too many phytoestrogens in my diet - I need a beer.. More Bad news..
Flavones are estrogenic too and found in alcoholic drinks, including whiskey, beer, and wine..
I think MuchMoreThanMuscle has a point - maybe you missed it... There are so many estrogenic compounds in our day to day life that singling out Soy is a bit unfair -
All things in moderation.
