Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That's why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today's rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products. (Most babies are bottle-fed during some part of their infancy, and one-fourth of them are getting soy milk!) Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because "I can't remember a time when I wasn't homosexual." No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can't remember a time when excess estrogen wasn't influencing them.

Yes: because "gay" always automatically equals GAY MALE. Also, all gay people who have ever existed, oh, SINCE THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND, had access to and consumed as much soy as health nuts do nowadays, which explains why gay people have always existed. Also: gay women---hypothetically there should be fewer of them now---all that estrogen is "feminizing" after all! Also, yes: it's really just as simple as "gay men = effeminate men," and that gay people are merely "gender-reversed" (i.e. - gay men "feminine" and gay women "masculine"); because that line of thought isn't itself based on an inherently heterosexual and artificially-conceived gender binary, either.

Sorry...the stupid set me off.

While he's an idiot, soy does contain enough estrogen to be bad news for people with autoimmune disorders. I'm not allowed to eat soy - it triggers flares.

I have systemic lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and even before I was told by a doc not to eat soy - if I eat soy, and then go into the sun, I get the discoid rash *really badly* (much worse than if I hadn't eaten soy).

Also - research has shown (in mice) that diets high in soy made lupus much worse. Sprouts are also a no-no.

In addition, the best course of action (when it comes to food) is to limit intake.

I stay completely on top of modern research when it comes to lupus/et al. I do this mostly because I do not have health insurance, and so I get treated by docs-in-training... and it's best if I come into appointments armed with medical journals.

If it's working for your mom - that's great. But at this point, I would consider it anecdotal and possibly a positive-placebo effect... especially considering my own experience and the research I've stumbled across.
