Is soy really that bad for you?

  • I have been a vegetarian and we always use soy as a good source of protein.

    Soy is very controversial. It contains phytoestrogen, which can act like regular estrogen in some people. I am one of those people. When I eat soy, I have cramps, break out, gain weight, and have a host of female problems. However some people say it helps reduce your risk of other female problems.

    Regardless, 90+% of soy is genetically modified and contains ungodly amounts of pesticides.

    While some cultures eat a lot of soy, they don't eat it genetically modified like we do, and they always ferment the soy to make it more easily digestible, also reducing the estrogen content.
