Given the amount of soy sauce I take in on a daily basis, I'm screwed.

Hundreds of millions of Japanese and other Asians don't seem to have these so-called soy diseases. In fact, with the original (non-Western) Japanese diet, heart-disease and breast cancer were virtually unknown.

That's what I used to think. However, Lierre Keith, author of The Vegetarian Myth, cites studies that the Japanese have the highest rate of thyroid disease, which she attributes to soy intake.

Well in that case, the manufacturers should be mandated to include a health warning, as with cigarettes :

"Warning : The Surgeon General Has Determined That This Product May Cause Crapulence."
