      Instead of writing a thesis on this, I thought it would be better to point you in the direction of finding your own answers. The jury is still out, imo. That being said, I choose the better safe than sorry route in most instances. There is actually ‘good soy’ and ‘bad soy’ even in the realm of those who point out inherent risks of consuming it. It all boils down to what part of the plant is being used, and how it is processed. If it is non-GMO and derived properly it is safe by anybody’s standards. I am not even going to suggest that you look at every label. I will caution though that you pay extra careful attention if you have hormonal/thyroid problems, a history of cancer, or children regularly consuming soy products. If you are avoiding dairy (another post for another day) and you are opposed to using goat’s milk, then rice milk is a better option than soy- again, IMO.
      I’ll post some negative articles, and some positive ones. You decide.  

      There are some countries I look to as the leading edge. NZ is one of them...![Link Removed](Here is what they have to say)!

        • To be fair, here is the rebuttal (like with Splenda articles from both sides were posted). I intentionally looke for ‘non-biased’ sites that were pro-soy.

          Here’s one:

          If you are reading these articles, you can see that it is not a clear cut answer. I am definitely against soy formulas for babies. I am definitely against genetically modified foods, which includes most of the soy we consume. But, I don’t put it in the same categories with the avoid no matter what foods - like nitrates, MSG, artificial sweeteners, and hydrogenated oils. Hopefully our FAB40 engineers will have the clickable links working again soon!
