In this episode of Carleigh Bodrug‘s PlantPod, we’re delving into one of the most controversial nutrition topics in the vegan community: SOY.
I do my best to answer all the questions you had about this heavily contested food including:
Is soy bad for your health?
Is soy estrogenic?
Will it increase breast tissue in men?
Can it have adverse effects on women’s hormones?
Does soy cause acne?
Is soy consumption linked to cancer?
Should we be seeking out non GMO soy?
How much soy is too much?
