Leaving pure estrogen behind? That sounds extremely unlikely.

Think of it this way: If you get estrogen from a doctor what you will get is pills or capsules, most likely capsules. Even those capsules will not contain pure estrogen, but usually have some sort of filler.

So while the concentration of estrogen might be higher in processed soy (or rather, after some ways of processing soy, which is not quite the same thing), anyone trying to sell the idea that what is left after processing soy will be pure estrogen is likely to have other primary concerns than truth.

Sorry to be a party pooper.

But when some are processed the grind up the whole bean in there and they say that is allright. Just like everything there is good and bad and you have to decided for yourself.

Most soy that we eat IS processed unless we're eating the bean. Tempeh is processed. Tofu is processed. I don't believe those foods, in moderation, are bad, personally.

this says that organic soy, ground up, the whole thing isn't bad. It is when they process it and cut through and throw away the outer layers leaving pure estrogen behind and that makes too much estrogen for us to handle. It is interesting.

In the last decade or so there have been so many studies showing both that soy is bad and soy is good. We all have to make our own decisions based on our own research, but personally I've yet to see any concrete evidence that GMO-free soy, in moderation, is bad.
