If so, consuming soy foods could reduce the risk of breast cancer, but study results have been conflicting: some show that soy consumption lowers the risk of breast cancer while others have found no such evidence; some studies have even suggested that concentrated supplements of soy proteins may stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. Results of a big study from Shanghai published in 2009 found that women participants whose intake of soy protein. Additionally, some soy foods are made with calcium sulfate, which makes them good sources of calcium, too.

However, some fear that these foods may not be safe because soy contains certain estrogenlike compounds — and high levels of estrogen have been linked to.

A vocal minority has fueled a “controversy” of misinformation that surrounds this nutritional powerhouse. A review of the published scientific literature uncovers a wealth of studies validating soy’s broad-spectrum benefits, from cardiovascular disease and cancer prevention, to helping to maintain bone density. The latest research finds that soy is safe for breast cancer patients, and may be beneficial (CNN) Tofu or snafu? Soy has become a big component of a.

Across the globe, there have been multiple recalls of soy sauce products that exceed safe. Still, it’s safe to assume that soy has some benefits going for it. In general, replacing animal foods with plant foods like soy lowers saturated fat. In my opinion, soy is not only safe, but potentially beneficial.

Soy has a long history of use in Asia, and within vegetarian populations throughout the world. Two of the healthiest, long-lived populations in the world – the Okinawan Japanese and the Seventh-day Adventists in Loma Linda California –.

At this time, it is probably best for women at high risk of breast cancer to avoid concentrated isoflavone supplements, but it is unlikely that moderate amounts of soy foods, as part of a plant-based diet, will increase cancer risk.37‚216–220

Until more is known about soy’s effect on estrogen levels, women who have or who are at increased risk for development of breast cancer or other hormone-sensitive conditions (such as ovarian or uterine cancer) should be particularly careful about using soy and should discuss it with their health care providers.

  • Great video!! People is worried about feminism effect due to the phytoestrogens, that comes from a plant and we are not similar to a plant whatsoever. In the other hand they don’t worry about cows milk which is packed with animal estrogens, which is very similar to us humans and we’ll absorb in the nanosecond of it passing through our lips!! People just don’t use their brains!!

  • एस्ट्रोजन आप रोज करीब 1:5 किलो खाने से बढ़ सकता है, आप रोज खायें। कोई नुकसान नही होने वाला। 150 rs किलो आता है आप 22 rs. में 150 ग्राम रोज खाते हैं तो 78 ग्राम प्रोटीन ले रहे हैं इतना सस्ता कोई प्रोटीन नही होता। सोयाबीन के विरुद्ध महंगे प्रोटीन बेचने वालों की प्रोपेगैंडा है

  • It really is funny the amount of misconceptions that blanket “soy” without looking at the specifics. Another case of headline reading. Thanks for sharing the details Whitney!

  • Idiot, we don’t have those receptors which acknowledges oestrogen, so doesn’t really matter, thoda padh likh lo pehle, idiot ������

  • @PictureFit, my nutricionist has told me to avoid soy, because the grain is processed… so there are better alternatives such as eggs…

  • Another FACTUAL and well rounded vid. Thank you for the amazing work you do to help educate us so we can be better stewards to our planet and cohabitants with all the other species here! You have already earned a Humanitarian award. Bless you.

  • Hlw sir i have some confusion
    #May I take boiled or soked soya chunks
    #if i take both then which one is better to take more protein from soya chunks
    # may i remove water from soya chunks after boiling / soked soya chunks
    I hope you will clear my confusion

  • Sir agar weak me 2 bar soya chunks diet me hai (not daily)to kya iska single serving 50 g se upar 100 g tak liya ja sakta h??? Asking

  • Thank you for this video, I been vegan for years and love soy, but latetly I was doubting the soy, due to all of this misconseption and black propaganda from the dairy industry, I have to confess “I was drinking the cool-aid”, but as I am, I like to investigate extensively something before making my own opinion. Not just judging based on one or two opinions, studies or videos…
    Thank you so much for this video, keep the good work.

  • Sorry sir…we can take maximum 100gm…no harm…according to reasearch related to estrogen harmone….100gm tak le sakte h!!! If u want link…i can gv

  • I work at Starbucks and when I read the labels and ingredient lists on all the plant based milks, the additives and extra ingredients list is longer on the almond, coconut and oat milk than on the soy one. Yet many think those are the healthier option…I think you can never really know what you are getting at coffee shops anyways, unless you ask to read the ingredient list on the carton.

  • If soy is a main part of your diet, meaning you chug down Soylent and eat tofu slabs every day, you’re likely gonna have more feminine qualities, e.g. gynecomastia, wider hips, lower sperm count, etc. Yet if you have soy sauce occasionally at P.F. Chang’s or something like that every other week, you’ll be good.

  • Pretty sure all the bad talks about soy are from the meat industry. High red meat consumption causes gout due to high amount of uric acid.

  • Thank you SO much!, for posting this video!!��
    I have just been wondering about this for a while!��
    I’m so happy, because, I make my own Soy yoghurt, and use organic soy milk for my one cup of espresso a day.������
    I love to hear those 3 sharing their knowledge.!
    Go watch Forks over knifes!!!������!
    Thank you!!!!!

  • So much of what she shares is pseudo science. She has a degree in pharmacy and NO degree in dietetics. Please consult a dietician if you are having issues with diet or have questions and not people on the internet trying to overstate their qualifications. Dieticians hold masters degrees (in most states) in nutrition and some home phDs. Please see an RD not someone from the internet.

  • Because soycontains phytoestrogens,men may worry about including it in their diet. However, studies do not indicate that soy negatively impacts the production of testosterone in men.

  • frying some tofu
    I had breast cancer when I was 25. I wasn’t consuming soy b4. After cancer I’ve been having lots of tofu and soy milk but its been 10 years and cancer has not come back. Knock on wood.

  • So here’s a comment from a meat eater. I’m not vegan and probably never will be. I’m not vegetarian either, but I am trying to lower the amount of animal products I eat including meat, not to 0 though.

    The main issue people have is a lack of education on a given topic, and the toxic community of that topic. When vegans attack and blame meat eaters from all kinds of things, that doesn’t want us to join your side. Making people look stupid, especially if their family has been doing it for generations, is not going to get them to turn around be like “you know what, you’re right”. I myself was disgusted with the videos I was seeing and vegan activists actively going out to destroy peoples livelihood that I didnt even think about the potential that they might be right.

    This holds true for all topics. You can’t try to force people to change. The best you can do is educate people, and have them decide. This is true from religion to veganism to food consumption (foie gras) to illegal substances.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that that’s why I like this video. There isn’t bashing on people that believed soy would cause certain things, it was “here’s the information, do what you will with it”

  • Love your videos, great recipes, great info and great fun ��, thank you. Whilst researching soy I was wondering whether you found any info on whether it is okay to have soy (love the milk!) whilst having an under-active thyroid, desperately looking for a yes �� but most of what I am finding indicates that it should be avoided. I’ve searched under Dr McGregor and other vegan/wfpb advocates but none mention this.

  • You do know that tofu is made from soymilk right? I do agree on avoiding over processed foods and isolates and of course avoid non organic soy

  • Its simple:asians wat more soy and they are bilions westerners eat more meat milk and so on and look at us! Its all about money. Why should u eat cheap good food when u can eat expensive food wich makes u sick and after that spwnd money on drugs, doctors, personal trainers to get better…. see the cycle? Capitalism at its best.

  • What!�� chikens cows pigs are also fattened with GMO soy?�� i thought they only ate GMO corn�� i wonder if estrogen alse affects animals as far as cancer then passed down to us consumers ����☝️ i surely learned a nutritional fact on meat today. Thanks dude�� ��

  • So the epic fail is that the researchers did not control the cow’s diet to control the milk samples. Most likely the (unhealthy, factory) cows were grain (soy) fed and injected with growth hormones, skewing the results, making the health problem of corporate manufactured (pasturized) milk.

  • Honestly those against GMOs should realize that there are no natural foods that we eat especially those foods that we farm. All those foods have been genetically altered by us for thousands and thousands of years. Fk those assholes that spread misinformation but if you’re one of those assholes that just believe in anything that anyone says without research then fk u too.

  • Guys do your research. Read the “Conclusion” section of this recent study. Soy isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5188409/

  • Thank you for this video �� I am also tired of those “soya is bad” arguments with people so now I’ll just stick this video in their face ����‍♀️ seriously tho, amazing amount of research there, all the info backed up, such a good job ��

  • I live in Israel too. Could we meet? All of the vegans i saw were unhealthy wicklings. You seem healthy from the distance of a youtube camera. I want to observe your health condition with my own eyes. Lets meet, ill buy you a cup of coffee.

  • Thank you so much for the research links because I have a friend that I have extensive conversations with regarding those exact assumptions and ideas, so this will definitely help him!

  • “Soy won’t lower your testosterone” soy contains estrogen which is a female hormone and too much of it can mess with your hormones.

  • Soy has higher kcal per protein ratio than beef, thus it’s less effective in muscle building.
    If I were a vegan or vegetarian and wanted to bulk, i would definitely use soy, but also whey.

  • Seems to me I should work at eating everything in moderate amounts… once in awhile. That way, if there is a disadvantage to a food, I won’t be getting an overload of it.

  • Thank you!! For what it’s worth, regarding soy and fertility, I have been a vegetarian (28years) and vegan (6 years). Soy has been a staple in my diet for most of my life, starting from childhood, and I went on to have 6 healthy children.

  • “Soy won’t lower your testosterone” soy contains estrogen which is a female hormone and too much of it can mess with your hormones.

  • A lot of these studies are from milk industries and meat industries. They try to stop people from eating it so that people will instead buy the dairy products. Also GMO is really not bad. WATERMELONS are GMO. It just means that farmers have changed the plants in order to be more edible for humans.

  • Awesome video! I also tested this hypothesis at a level that would never be accepted in a medical study due to safety and ethical reasons for the participants. Last 6 weeks before a bodybuilding show I basically used mostly soy and soy protein. I took a blood test 2 days after a show, low estrogen, normal testosterone, great blood work all around given the huge stress on the body by getting to a 6-7% bodyfat level.

  • What ppl tend to forget is that milk also contain hormones like estrogen that are animal hormones not plant hormones ”phytoestrogen”

  • Good information about soya which is a great source of protein for vegetarians. I have also created a similar video where I have researched about Soya and its benefits, breaking several myths. Please do check it out at https://youtu.be/IqeAQ23v64A

  • Is soy helpful or harmful for women with breast cancer? Dr. Wendy Chen, a breast cancer expert with the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber, discusses the topic.

  • Koreans or japanese to boht zada soya bean khata hain on ka to estrogyn level nhi brta, ulta un ki health dunya ma sab sa zada behter ha, how do you explain that

  • you also went to a shitty school to do pharmacy with over 85% acceptance rate LOL you aren’t even smart at what u are supposed to be qualified in

  • I’ve grown up eating soy and absolutely love it. I am 50 yrs old and wondered at times if it made my menopause symptoms worse.. maybe a little but I discovered something recently! It was the oil and to much fats in my diet as a vegan that were causing my symptoms! Since I cut out oil and greatly reduced fats in my diet, I can enjoy my soy without hot flashes! It’s awesome and I’ve lost some weight that I really wanted to. It really is the fat that causes lots of problems.

  • Everyone in my family gets breast cancer including men. I have the gene myself. And this infuriates me that I have been told none stop that whatever you do do NOT have soy at all costs. When in fact this would benefit me against it! Absolutely maddening because it’s in everything!

  • Would you be able to do a video on nuts and nut based foods? I find that alot of vegan products are made with nuts and they cause for me a lot of wt gain, and increased cholesterol. Further I was reading, some papers which state that the nuts can increase the growth of herpes simplex lesions due to the increase in arginine… so would really appreciated your insight. A few other topics that would be interesting to hear about would be chlorella, spirulina and moringa. What are the benefits and side effects on each of these supplements? Thank you so much!

  • Soy DOES MESS WITH YOU AND YOUR KIDS…I wouldn’t drink milk when I was a newborn baby SO the nurse and my mom fed me soy AND IT WAS THE ABSOLUTE WORST THING OF MY LIFETIME THEY COULD HAVE EVER DONE AND MY LIFE HAS NOT BEEN NORMAL SINCE THEN!..These guys know exactly what it does to you, that WHY they want you drinking it!

  • i hate how difficult it is to discern the truth nowadays. a study against, a study for; what does one believe anymore?! drives me insane.

  • My son has been having soy milk because his that’s the only milk he has been able to take that’s non-dairy and has enough protein/calories, according to his allergy specialist.

    What can I give as an alternative? I am super concerned. I have been going back and forth with his milk situation ever since we got him off dairy. I’m just having such a hard time understanding what is the best option for him. Please help!! ��

  • Pretty sure all the bad talks about soy are from the meat industry. High red meat consumption causes gout due to high amount of uric acid.

  • I really felt that avocado reaction, it’s always a struggle�� I hope I’ll live in the future somewhere where all this good stuff actually grows!

  • Hi Doctor Nona, Can you make a video about how to lower cholesterol? What type of food to help to reduce cholesterol? Thank you and looking forward to see a video for that.

  • Im glad its not poison as I was made to believe. Still wont consume it though. (I dont like the taste, texture or smell of it) I ll just not worry about my friends who do.

  • wrong information..kis basis pe aap bol rahe hai soya jada mat khao..aisi koi study nhi huyi abhi takk..so misguide mat kro logo ko…

  • These guys and Esseltyn have been screaming on a megaphone for decades. ” Hello, we have the answer for many, many diseases” The disease charities are deaf and they just scratch their heads. What causes cancer?? What causes heart disease? Jeez we just don’t know and the rates are increasing. I don’t usually believe most conspiracy theories but I truly believe big money is trying to keep us sick. It’s good for business.

  • Good Piece Man!!. i wish you could also interview experts from the soy Plant Experts to help us learn the good and the bad soy. Biggest Thanks, more power.

  • I usually love your videos but the way you talk about this is dangerous. Soy doesn’t increase your estrogen. It contains phytoestrogens that bind to your estrogen receptor sites and actually REDUCES the amount of estrogen that you produce. As a vegan registered dietitian, it’s extremely important than you share the CORRECT information and this isn’t it. Please consider getting experts on here if you don’t fully understand the topic, as you have quite a bit of responsibility.

  • Which weight do we consider for our nutritional value? Before soaking chunks in water or after soaking and removing the water from it?

  • All these studies contradict each other. All that matters is your own experience, and in my experience, reducing soy intake to zero flattened my chest and flattened my abdomen.

  • The soy/ hormone thing broke my heart. You’re perfect the way you were made and your beard looks great. Some people are just hateful.

  • with the tempeh steam it 5 min or so break it up in dish add celery and vegan mayo season with a little pepper makes the best tuna

  • you’re not a physician. it’s misleading to call yourself “doctor” of a health account when you’re a pharmacist. no credible pharmacist calls themselves a ‘doctor’ when it can mislead patients into thinking you’re a physician. so go fuck yourself

  • My sister told me to avoid soy because she saw a video of people injecting soy with a virus, she said it was either the ebola virus or the ecola virus and I couldn’t find the video. I don’t care about the estrogen I just want to know is soy being injected with a virus?

  • Thanks for checking out this video! There’s so much misinformation out there about soy, I hope this clears some of it up. Again, you don’t HAVE to eat soy, but as this video shows, it also isn’t something we need to be worried about. I’ve had a few people ask me how much soy they can be eating? Check out this video “How Much Soy Is Too Much” from Nutrition Facts for the answer to that. https://bit.ly/1NiIqgy

  • What!�� chikens cows pigs are also fattened with GMO soy?�� i thought they only ate GMO corn�� i wonder if estrogen alse affects animals as far as cancer then passed down to us consumers ����☝️ i surely learned a nutritional fact on meat today. Thanks dude�� ��

  • I’m vegan and don’t eat soy. It’s really easy. You don’t have to eat soy to be a vegan. Meateaters eat more soy because of how it’s in so many processed foods

  • normal milk causes dips in testosterone since its packed with estrogen since the mommy cow is pregnant when the milk is being farmed

  • Thanks brother for continuing to overcome ignorance with light and truth… There’s always an invincible community that fights for truth, beauty, and wisdom that never makes me feel alone.

  • High 5 for the info about phytoestrogens in BEER!!
    (Actually, plant estrogens are not the same as animal estrogens and do not have the same effects on the human body.)
    And thank you for your videos about various vegan foods they are very informative & helpful.

  • Alex Jones and paul joshep watson a Zionist jew shill are defending the meat and dairy industry. You idiots forget that meat and dairy pumped full of estrogen.

  • dude! main daily khata huun soya chunks….fav hai meri… aur kya khane se daily protein requirement puri hogi?? chicken, paneer chhod ke… pasand nhi

  • Omg. I was told by doctors to avoid soy because my mums breast cancer was excessively estrogen positive, yet don’t forget to keep drinking milk!! ����‍♀️ I am a daily dairy consumer in my tea. No more no more! And I’m so happy to know I can bring mock meats back into my life guilt free!

  • What about for Endometriosis? Studies have shown that the phytoestrogens in soy feed endometriosis and cause them to grow. Depending on where the endo grows, it can cause infertility in some women. Is this not the case?

  • I love soy, everyone has always said not to eat it, but I love it! Have been eating it for 30 years, all through my pregnancy and raised my daughter with soy, she’s always loved tofu! And will continue to eat it, we will never eat dairy. Could never support the dairy industry it is so wrong, but that’s just my opinion.

  • Its simple:asians wat more soy and they are bilions westerners eat more meat milk and so on and look at us! Its all about money. Why should u eat cheap good food when u can eat expensive food wich makes u sick and after that spwnd money on drugs, doctors, personal trainers to get better…. see the cycle? Capitalism at its best.

  • Regarding Soy Milk: Lots of brands of Almond Milk and Coconut Milk have those same added ingredients you listed so that’s not a good reason to avoid it… There are brands of soy milk with only Soy Beans and Water in the ingredients, which is actually very healthy for you.

  • it’s so damn confusing. i want so bad to follow this guy’s advices, because i hate meat, i like soy, but everytime i want to go on a diet like that i see a video “soy and estrogen” and it makes me give up. so confusing.
    i eat 150g boiled and baked soy chunks a day, just for the protein. i don’t know what to believe. so damn confusing.

  • with the tempeh steam it 5 min or so break it up in dish add celery and vegan mayo season with a little pepper makes the best tuna

  • thank you for posting this video. i was told by a doctor to stop eating soy to help regulate my hormones and i haven’t had my beloved tofu in over a year. i can’t wait to reintroduce soy back into my life. there was just so much conflicting info out there! thanks for clearing this up

  • Thank you for this video �� I am also tired of those “soya is bad” arguments with people so now I’ll just stick this video in their face ����‍♀️ seriously tho, amazing amount of research there, all the info backed up, such a good job ��

  • If soy is good for your health and you feed the cows with soy then cow’s milk is good for your health or not?And if soy reduces estrogen levels then cows have a low level of estrogen.In addition in humans during pregnancy high levels of estrogen blocks lactation after giving birth estrogen levels drop which allows breastfeeding I guess it happens the same way for cows (must ask a Vegan they know everything).So the high rate of estrogen in the milk seems to be bullshit too.

  • Hundred millions of Japanese are eating soy since thousands of years. Japanese has longest life and oldest people in the world. We will keep eating soy no matter what western fads says. Soy is excellent.

  • I am really glad I found your channel. I love the clean eating and how you breakdown terminologies and how things are processed. I love how you even have recommended brands as well.

  • Love this video bro! Thank you. Too many soy haters out there. However the people with the highest longevity in the world consume them daily

  • I really like temeh, I even eat it plain. The thing is, at my supermarket there is only one kind of tempeh and it’s something like 3 grain tempeh. It has like barley and other grains in it. Is all tempeh like that.

  • dude! main daily khata huun soya chunks….fav hai meri… aur kya khane se daily protein requirement puri hogi?? chicken, paneer chhod ke… pasand nhi

  • 5:40 I love that omnivores are so worried about phyto-estrogen (plant estrogen) but drink cows milk filled with Mammalian estrogen!

  • I heard soy competes with iodine over the thyroid gland, which damages in the long run… I wish this was answered… anyone have any info?

  • Soy is everywhere (protein) very important, I eat it, at least, every other day. One of the reasons why I subscribed to your channel is because first, it is about vegan diet, second because it is very informative, and third because I’m tired of hearing people say (misinformation/ignorance, unfortunately) that if you are a vegan, you cannot build muscle (you’ re “doomed” to be skinny ��)… You are in great shape, I suppose your girlfriend (wife?) is in great shape too, right? The next time I hear the silly muscle comment again, I’ll send them one of your videos �� They have probably never seen a Belgian horse, a bull or a buffalo… very strong animals that only eat hay (herbivorous)… Anyway, Thanks for sharing!

  • I never got why soy boy is considered an insult. What is wrong with people eating soy?

    I don’t hate soymilk because it’s unmanly. I hate soymilk because it tastes awful.

    Soysauce on the other hand I will gladly put on rice.

  • That makes so much sense! I’ve been in taking much more soy/tofu than usual and at the beginning, my stomach was so bloated for hours after. Now, I can eat it no problem:) my stomach truly adjusted

  • I really like temeh, I even eat it plain. The thing is, at my supermarket there is only one kind of tempeh and it’s something like 3 grain tempeh. It has like barley and other grains in it. Is all tempeh like that.

  • Another FACTUAL and well rounded vid. Thank you for the amazing work you do to help educate us so we can be better stewards to our planet and cohabitants with all the other species here! You have already earned a Humanitarian award. Bless you.

  • normal milk causes dips in testosterone since its packed with estrogen since the mommy cow is pregnant when the milk is being farmed

  • Thanks so much for this fine information. I have been so concerned about the breast cancer causing effects of soy. This has cleared things up for me so well.

  • there are types of soy that are good for you and that are not
    the soy found in japan and other parts of asia is the ” good one ” but the one sold in the west is the bad one

  • Awesome video! I also tested this hypothesis at a level that would never be accepted in a medical study due to safety and ethical reasons for the participants. Last 6 weeks before a bodybuilding show I basically used mostly soy and soy protein. I took a blood test 2 days after a show, low estrogen, normal testosterone, great blood work all around given the huge stress on the body by getting to a 6-7% bodyfat level.

  • What I got from this video is that he said the American soy association that right there tells me that this dude doesn’t have a single clue of what he is talking every association has an endorsement that for the right price will establish

  • Thank you! I love TOFU but have avoided it for years due to the misinformation around it. Will start incorporating tofu / soymilk back into diet

  • it’s so damn confusing. i want so bad to follow this guy’s advices, because i hate meat, i like soy, but everytime i want to go on a diet like that i see a video “soy and estrogen” and it makes me give up. so confusing.
    i eat 150g boiled and baked soy chunks a day, just for the protein. i don’t know what to believe. so damn confusing.

  • In my city in Brazil all i can find is soy protein isolate. How many times do you think i could eat it a week and be safe? I’m scared now, tought it was so healthy:(

  • Im a male and I’ve been eating vegan foods including soy for only six months so far and my sex drive is actually higher and my energy levels are high. I dont understand why but its happening.

  • There is no doubt by now that most studies on soy are made so people on some industries dont lose profits. That one is very clear as outside the “NATO region” these are much less prevalent.
    However, cultures in which people are very “testosterone infused naturally” are also the cultures which soy has been consumed a lot in many forms. And they also are the least affected by cancers and tyroid problems.
    Then we go to cultures that base most of their food in milk, meat and eggs, like northern India and region, do have a much more consistent number of cases of malformations, cancer and other pre or neo natal complications. However, when we get to the cultures that consume much less animal milk, like many in South america, parts of China, and some parts of africa, their health is even better than their situation might suggest.
    Which lead me to think that the bombardment of soy condemning studies are responses to the studies that show adult humans should not consume animal milk.

  • Soy consumption is said to lead to a higher risk of forming breast cancer, but us Asians consume soy like no other, and our statistics of breast cancer is on the low end. Of course we aren’t eating imitation meat on the daily as a mono meal, but we do have processed soy products like tempeh, soy milk, soy sauce, tofu, etc. that is prevalent in Asian dishes that is consumed regularly. The monks I come across at my temple also eat a lot of soy based products as form of protein, and I don’t see or hear about any breast cancer links to that population and a soy based diet. Everything in moderation and yes, try to avoid gmo foods, but is soy really so bad that even natural and unprocessed soy should be limited or avoided? I love my lattes and I love oat and hemp milks, but those are not always available so soy milk it is because I am allergic to tree nuts. It’s a pet peeve of mine when people make comments about how terrible soy is, but “here Chris, have some almond milk so you can die.” Gee thanks. And I know I am not alone here on that one.

  • While I have been a big opponent of Soy based off some Vids I saw at the beginning of my WFPB lifestyle, I only allowed myself fermented soy sparingly in noodle bowls; I am impressed by the panel of Dr.s that you have compiled in this vid. With there data/citations in mind; I will begin introducing organic soy in at least a couple of meals a week along with my fermented soy usage. Thank you for broadening my protein panel and while it has created a nutritional cognitive dissonance, I will push through until I’m comfortable. Dang the propaganda that makes eating healthy so confusing…

  • References increase credibility, it’s no longer your understand or opinion but a well studied conclusion from an outside source that corroborates what you’re presenting.

  • Omg. I was told by doctors to avoid soy because my mums breast cancer was excessively estrogen positive, yet don’t forget to keep drinking milk!! ����‍♀️ I am a daily dairy consumer in my tea. No more no more! And I’m so happy to know I can bring mock meats back into my life guilt free!

  • Oh wow I didn’t know that about soy milk! What would you say is the ‘healthiest’ plant based milk in terms of high protein, low sugar content?

  • there are types of soy that are good for you and that are not
    the soy found in japan and other parts of asia is the ” good one ” but the one sold in the west is the bad one

  • Sir agar weak me 2 bar soya chunks diet me hai (not daily)to kya iska single serving 50 g se upar 100 g tak liya ja sakta h??? Asking

  • I heard that increased estrogen levels are associated with negative health effects and that soy mimics estrogen but is not estrogen.

  • What about for Endometriosis? Studies have shown that the phytoestrogens in soy feed endometriosis and cause them to grow. Depending on where the endo grows, it can cause infertility in some women. Is this not the case?

  • 5:40 I love that omnivores are so worried about phyto-estrogen (plant estrogen) but drink cows milk filled with Mammalian estrogen!

  • Sorry sir…we can take maximum 100gm…no harm…according to reasearch related to estrogen harmone….100gm tak le sakte h!!! If u want link…i can gv

  • Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful teaching information video on soybeans. I use to enjoy �� it and I gave it up because of all the negative �� press. I can now use it again..������������������������������

  • Issue is if you’re allergic to soy or just don’t like it the soy free vegan options are limited, unless you just want to subsist off other beans which is boring as hell. I mean yeah theres seitan but a lot of people don’t eat that either for various reasons.

  • GMO are specifically created, along with others purposes, to reduce the use of pesticides making stronger and resistent crops.
    Tell people that GMO are posibly unsafe to use for pesticides that are not using is like telling people that regular crops are safe using regular that are risky in the first point.

  • Derick
    soy is estrogenic, there’s absolutely no denying it. Beer is WAY more estrogenic, even the hops outside of the beer (an herbal tincture) are highly estrogenic. (Source: i’m an herbalist.)

  • glossing over the GMO issue with soy. That leaves soy off of my consumables list. Most foods that use soy to boost the protein levels are made with isolated soy protein including a lot of products that pretend to be healthy like clif and luna bars. That takes those products off my list too. Soy free for me and I am whole food plant based vegan. I suspect this video is meant to boost sales of certain supplements being marketed by the producer.

  • I really felt that avocado reaction, it’s always a struggle�� I hope I’ll live in the future somewhere where all this good stuff actually grows!

  • I’ve got pcos but i don’t know if i have hypothyroidism. I’ve been recently diagnosed with pcos and i am trying to go on a diet and want to try the soy products but i get symptoms like being really tired and i get tonsillitis quite a lot.

  • Just recently turned vegan due to gut inflammation. So far am enjoying it!
    Keep up the great work Derek as you are one of my new mentors/motivators to continue this lifestyle change!
    Peace & love from the 6ix!

  • Hell no vegan is so unhealthy u look absolutely awful and ur muscle is so fake its just cringe I’m eating cheese right now titty milk is so yummy!

  • Whether I’m vegan or not I’m still eating a lot of soy. I’m just going to try and avoid processed soy and stick to more organic soy like tempeh, tofu, edemame, and maybe soy milk (even tho I drink almond and flax)

  • Thank you so much for the research links because I have a friend that I have extensive conversations with regarding those exact assumptions and ideas, so this will definitely help him!

  • Hundred millions of Japanese are eating soy since thousands of years. Japanese has longest life and oldest people in the world. We will keep eating soy no matter what western fads says. Soy is excellent.

  • The truth is, there are a lot of different health based reasons why people eat plant based diets and most of the people who want to debate the subject, do not actually give two fucks about the health issues of strangers or even their own friend’s health issues for that matter. They don’t want to hear about the thousands of heart attack and stroke victims, who were ordered to go on plant based diets by their actual doctors and surgeons, as opposed to listening to some know-it-all Gym-bro, who took a health class in community college and got a C+ grade.

    Nobody wants to hear about my health history and how meat and dairy products destroyed my digestive tract: “Let’s talk for 30 minutes about how eating meat and dairy products causes me not to be able to take a shit more often than about once every 7 days, as opposed to 4 or 5 times per day on a vegetarian diet. Don’t you want to hear about the time that I went almost 3 weeks on a low carb, meat based diet without shitting? Aren’t you interested in the part where I finally guzzled a bunch of laxatives and I dumped out a tennis ball sized shit rock, that felt like a city bus driving through my asshole? Hey, where are you going? Wait! We haven’t talked yet about my messy anal leakage that disappeared almost overnight, when I stopped eating meat! Hmm, that was weird. I guess he really wasn’t that interested in learning about the benefits of plant based diets. That’s funny because, he seemed really interested at first, when he started talking about all the Soy Boy stuff”.

  • Thank you for this video ���� I started to eat a whole food plant diet and I started to hear a lot of negative stuff about soy! So this video is totally welcome in the community ❤️

  • Hlw sir i have some confusion
    #May I take boiled or soked soya chunks
    #if i take both then which one is better to take more protein from soya chunks
    # may i remove water from soya chunks after boiling / soked soya chunks
    I hope you will clear my confusion

  • I’m not able to find the previous video that he talks about in this video, which I’m guessing is named ‘Is Soy Bad For Men’. Could anyone please point me to it?

  • I know you said I stay away from soy milk, but what about organic soy milk? I am a breastfeeding new mother and I have a baby boy, would drinking soy milk negatively affect him from the “estrogen”

  • I like soy milk because of the protein while avoiding growth hormones of regular milk. And it tastes delicious with a mixture of natural kakao powder.
