Today I boasted to my friend Deep that in the last 3 weeks I've lost 7 pounds and how about 5 nights a week I'll have a tofu salad with spicy dressing. He went into a fit, warning me that ANY soy intake would infuse me with estrogen, shriven my loins, make me grow boobs, and afflict me with crapulence.
I told him the Japanese have been healthily eating soy for centuries and he responded, "Haven't you heard of koro?"
I've read pros and cons about soy and remain confused. Any definitive info out there?
