Maybe: There is some evidence that soy products will increase estrogen levels and possible decrease your testosterone levels. There are phytoestrogens in Soy. The peer reviewed evidence is not strong and I've seen arguments for health benefits and for health concerns. From what I've read it probably decreases your testosterone slightly.
