Contrary to popular opinion, no, soy is not bad for cancer patients or people with thyroid conditions (the latter are generally advised to wait four hours after taking their medication before eating soy) and GMO foods have not been shown to be dangerous to anyone's health.
You probably shouldn't overdo soy, but you shouldn't overdo anything you eat anyway. Eat a varied diet and don't worry about it so much.
Also, for quick preparation low-sodium legumes, get some red lentils. They cook as quick as rice does. Actually, any dried legumes can be hydrated in a rice cooker. It's super convenient, though it can take some time depending on the legume you're preparing (e.g. chickpeas will take a few hours, but it's faster than soaking or boiling them on a stove).
