Default What's the Problem with Soy?

I've seen several people on this ng talking about avoiding soy and things
made from it. So I'm curious...why?
I've never really used soy products before going low-carb, but I'm not
having any problems with them now that I'm aware of.

It always amazes me that there are people like you out there who have
nothing better to do with their time except harass and irritate people. Why
don't you go suck on a soybean already? It would be time better spent than
coming around here and spewing insults about something you have no clue
about....

According to QUACK Atkins, EVERY FOOD is bad except raw naked flesh
from dead animals. If it aint bloody, it aint food !!!
Atkins was a vampire of sorts, he had to have blood in every food
item.

Some people are sensitive to it-- the soy mimics feminine hormones and
can mess up a delciate system. An occasional use, here and there
probably won't be a problem, especially if you have never noticed
trouble before. But daily/heavy use might be. Something to be aware
of, that's all. Google the group on soy for more indepth discussion.

People who like to listen to Frank Sinatra die of heart attack and
cancer at far higher rates than people who like to listen to Britney
Spears. Therefore, there is a link between the music of Frank Sinatra
and heart disease and cancer. --Tony Lew

And this is saving us from ourselves how again? Oh yeah that's right,
you FAILED at being a messiah so you decided to take on the opposite
number. Did you read about this in 'how to make friends and influence
people'? I suggest you get your money back.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to
think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's
fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I
must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one
ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's
Them that do the bad things. {Jingo, 1997}

Soy is a source of phytoestrogens, which is just a fancy way of saying
plant-sourced estrogens. Some people are not able to stick extra
estrogens in their system without getting symptoms like tender
breasts, water retention, etc. That's why I have to avoid a lot of
soy. If I wanted that kind of misery I'd take BC pills. ;-) Others
avoid soy because there's some evidence that overconsumption (the
definition of which varies from person to person) can negatively
impact on thyroid function.

Take care,
Carmen

Thanks for the info, revek and Carmen. I googled the group as revek
suggested and found a lot of interesting stuff.
