    You are right, soy is healthy! Asian cultures have been eating it for centuries and have no problems reproducing and do not have the diseases prevalent in the western world! I have been eating soy all my life, my mom is Japanese, and I am one of the fittest people I know! You can see muscles in my arms, legs and abs without flexing! If soy makes men feminine, how do I manage to have excellent muscle tone and strength after eating soy all my life! I exercise moderately, and eat plant food generously! You are right about the people who criticize soy the most being the westerners eating unhealthy diets, looking to place blame instead of taking responsibility for their health! I personally feel that a lot of these rumors were started by industries that soy competes with such as the meat and dairy industries! As far as genetically modified (GM) soy, we dont know if GMOs are safe or not, because there has not been enough research completed yet! Suspicion arises when there is so much resistance to labeling food in the US which contains GMOs! After all, Japan, Europe, Australia and other countries have passed laws requiring GMO labeling on food, why not the US??Thanks for sharing your views!
