Time to clarify ‘soy is bad for you’ myths.

I drink a lot of soy milk and I eat a lot of soy products. I don’t support the dairy industry and I find cow’s milk a really gross idea, so I avoid dairy a fair bit (I still consume a bit of cheese and aioli and other things, but my milk is always soy, as is my ice cream).

I do, however, sometimes worry I consume TOO much. Or at least I did before I did a bit of research…
This is a fantastic summary of the myths and the reality of soy consumption. 

I still think it is best to have everything in moderation, and there’s no need to be drinking three soy milk coffees a day or whatever, but it’s not really bad for you in the ways that people are beginning to think. 

Anyway, the bottom line is DON’T BELIEVE THE RUMOURS! Do your own research and decide for yourself what you’re eating and drinking, where it comes from, how bad/good it is for you and what its effect on the environment and world around you is!
