Are you concerned about how much soy products you eat – hypnosis can help. If you’re not, maybe you should be. New research and analysis suggest that not only have the benefits of soy been exaggerated, but too much soy may be harmful. “We’ve learned that soy isn’t a miracle food after all,” says sports nutritionist Lisa Dorfman, author of The Vegetarian Sports Nutrition Guide. “Even so, soy foods remain a healthy alternative to high fat proteins.”

A study conducted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences linked genistein (a phytoestrogen in soy) to reproductive problems and infertility in mice. And, the Journal of the American Dietetic Association reported in 2005 that the studies linking soy to cancer prevention were inconsistent, and acknowledged that high soy consumption might actually increase breast-cancer risk.

In Asia, women have a lower rate of breast cancer and men have a lower rate of prostate cancer than their Western counterparts, which is part of the reason everyone got excited about soy in the first place. But a woman in Japan might have a few ounces of tofu in her soup at lunch, and a man in China a handful of soy nuts as a snack. “If we ate the same amount of soy as people in other countries, we’d be fine,” says sports dietitian Nancy Clark, R.D. “Some Americans consume soy in excess through supplements, bars, and shakes.”

Do you think that you don’t eat soy? Think again. It’s in your diet; most manufacturers use forms of the protein-dense bean as extenders and oils in cereals, breads, pastas, pretzels, and even cheeses. For more information on soy, read Dr. John McDougall‘s article, Soy – Food, Wonder Drug, or Poison?

I used to use soy milk, tofu and soy cheese, but after researching soy, I have switched to rice milk for my cereal, cooking and baking. If in a restaurant my meal includes soy products I will eat it, but I no longer include soy in my daily meals.
