I agree with everything that has been said here. I also am sickened by the way soy has been promoted as a "health" food through mass marketing and advertising. I only eat organic soy that has been fermented (fermented soy sauce, miso, tempeh) and I eat them very infrequently.

I don't trust WebMD either. It is closely tied with the mainstream medical industry and therefore gives the same advice on how to stay sick, take drugs and submit to surgeries. As long as we stay sick this corrupted industry will benefit and thrive. Has anyone here seen "Doctored" yet? It's a MUST SEE! For a limited time you can see it at:

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

If you don't have any issues with it, then that's good.

My gyn doesn't care what the FDA, AMA, etc say. She's told me to avoid soy, so I have for the most part. I agree with everything you all have said. I also disagree with almost everything on web.md.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

Here's a list of why to avoid soy from Doc Mercola's website.

Also, my niece is VERY allergic to soy. My sister has to make her everything from scratch. No eating out EVER! She gets the most horrible rash all over her body. Looks like eczema, but it's caused by soy. Soy also goes by many different names (watch for diglycerides and triglycerides)

I think that soy allergies are becoming so prevalent is because it is in everything. It starts in baby formulas.

We say it does, but research says it's inconclusive. So there is no banning soy anytime soon. :p

Corn, the stuff on the cobb, doesn't even taste good to me. High fructose corn syrup = organ death and it's hard to find processed food that does not contain soy or is not made in a factory that also works with soy.

I think I have a soy allergy. I swear it increases my estrogen levels.

I avoid unfermented soy. Mostly because it is in EVERYTHING!
Secondly, is most likely GMO (round-up ready) so it has been BLASTED with chemicals.
Thirdly, unfermented soy is also a phytoestrogen. Can really wreak havoc with your hormones.
Lastly, I just don't really like soy all that much. Except for occasionally some organic, lower sodium tamari sauce. (Only if I'm out of coconut aminos)

Stubborn weight loss issues are usually related to hormone imbalances, thyroid issues or insulin resistance. Soy should be avoided by anyone who has these issues.

Well, I have my own opinion and will NOT eat soy. It is one of the most GMO foods out there, right next to corn. Besides it messes with our hormones. They use soy in all kinds of foods because it is so cheap. I could go on about this but I wont, I'm in a good mood and want to stay that way! LOL
On a short note: I find a lot of things that FDA approve are banned in other countries, are horrible for us and the less healthy we are the more they can make by pushing their drugs.
I am with you I DO NOT LIKE SOY!

I like taking the WebMD quizzes and this question came up under the Protein Quiz and I thought I'd share that I immediately clicked TRUE! And I said true because I HATE SOY every thing. I knew I was "wrong" when I clicked TRUE, but I had to do it. And so they stopped me in my tracks because I was "wrong" and gave me this response:

In short, the bad claims about soy are "inconclusive" after research.
___________________________
FALSE!

There have been some concerns about whether the presence in soy of isoflavones, a plant-made estrogen or "phytoestrogen," should cause women to be wary of soy. But experts say that as part of a balanced diet, soy protein can make a good low-fat alternative to high-fat, animal-based proteins for both women and men.

Many other health claims about soy suggest an inconclusive mix of benefits and risks. The key, as in so many things, is moderation. The Harvard University School of Public Health recommends keeping it between two to four servings per week.

Soy comes from the soybean and can be found in soy milk, tempeh, edamame, and tofu. Whole soy provides all the essential amino acids, just like protein from animal sources. It is also used as a meat substitute in some vegetarian dishes.
