@_earthling__ - 🌱💪🏾Repost @torre.washington: ...We live in a world where people are misled through their emotions, specifically "FEAR" and this is true of soy. We are currently told that it will increase #estrogen production in men, cause cancer in women or disrupt the thyroid. First we must distinguish between who or what entity is spreading this information before coming to conclusions. I have been a consumer of soy since going #vegan and when I was a #vegetarian, there weren't many choices then and now there is so much to choose from. We must not let fear get the best of us, there is so much work to do in spreading awareness.

There’s no debate: #Soy is beneficial to your health. Soy products have been shown beneficial for lung #cancer prevention and survival, prostate cancer prevention, heart health and diabetes, bone health, inflammation, and hot flashes, among other conditions.

Soy foods figure prominently in women’s health. Soy is the #1 source of isoflavones and may provide protection against #ovariancancer, multiple myeloma and #breastcancer. And breast cancer survivors who eat soy foods may have a much lower likelihood of cancer recurrence in fact, one study showed regular consumption of just one cup of soy milk daily lowered overall mortality among breast cancer patients by up to 38%. When it comes to endometrial cancer, menopausal women taking estrogen-containing drugs may experience an increased risk of endometrial cancer of as much as ten-fold, while phytoestrogen-containing foods like soy seem to be protective against endometrial cancer. In one study, women who ate the most soy had 30% less endometrial cancer and appeared to cut their ovarian cancer risk nearly in half.
In addition, menopausal adult women who increase their phytoestrogen intake by eating soy foods may help reduce hot flashes young girls who consume soy may help delay the onset of premature menarche and puberty. Soy foods, it should be noted, do not reduce male fertility."
