One of my favorite Chinese food dishes since becoming “vegan” has been crispy bean curd (tofu) and although I realize it being fried is probably not the healthiest way to eat, I was content knowing I only had it once in a while.
I initially found an article from a google search of “is soy bad for men” that must be the most popular article ever read (it is organically #1 for the google search) and is an unwieldily 7 pages (nice ad impression revenue)
The article, for most people who only get through pages 1-2 would seem to imply that one isolated case of a texan who consumed 3 quarts of soy-milk a day developed sensitive breasts because of plant estrogen found in said soy-milk. If you read the article, like me, and tend to rush to snap judgments, this might be enough to swear you off the stuff. You can read this article here:
I decided however not to stop there. Since recent popular news is awash with scare-tactic articles of everything from coffee being a killer for men between their 20s and 50s, to cell phone screens damaging your vision due to an artificial nearsighted-ness… I am not willing to let some reporter with an agenda tell me what is good or bad for me. Give me the facts (or links) and let me draw my own conclusions – since it seems NONE of what is reported is actually scientific facts (they are assumptions based upon research claims).
This is an article that seems to have it’s head on straight – and surmises that the benefits outweigh the risks, especially with “normal” consumption.
Or you can try my google search out here to make your own conclusions:
In the meanwhile, i’ll probably still use my Starbucks gift cards and have some crispy tofu once in a while
