Soy Followup

28_tofu_lgl2The folks at Men’s Health can’t seem to make up their mind.

As discussed on Small Bites a few days ago, their latest issue featured a pathetically — and blatantly — biased, much-ado-about-nothing, one-sided article that blasted soy as an unhealthy, feminizing food that has no place in any man’s diet. Editor David Zinczenko even described soy as “a bland threat to manhood” in his monthly note to readers.

Yet, as Small Bites reader Corey Clark discovered while browing their website, tofu-based recipes (credited to buff fitness model Gregg Avedon) are recommended as “muscle chow” (as they should!)

I still stand by my theory that the article in question may simply be a form of alternative advertising by the dairy industry and/or whey protein companies.

    i really wish people would stop bashing soy products – like tofu and tempeh and just give them a try. they are a cheap and excellent source of protein!

    Thanks for the balance on soy products, Andy. I’ve heard some talk of hormonal effects in women too, which I figured was silly. But is there solid research that says large amounts of soy are unhealthy? For example, would it be healthy to eat daily helpings of soy-based products like tofu, tempeh, soy meat substitutes, and soymilk? (I’m not talking about powdered protein products.)
