Maybe: There is some evidence that soy products will increase estrogen levels and possible decrease your testosterone levels. There are phytoestrogens in Soy.

Are foods cooked in soybean oil bad for men? I heard soy products are not good for men. Same for soybean oil? Thank you.

Too much is no good: Soy products have been dietary staples in asia for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Soy can contain compounds that affect thyroid function, and can be mildly estrogenic. Excessive intake, especially of processed soy products, e.g. Texturized soy protein, as opposed to natural sources like edamames, tofu, tempeh, could conceivably be a problem; mostly not. Soy oil doesn't have those chemicls. ...Read more

I'm allergic to peanut & soy products and I need to know what can I eat, I've even Google d it and I can't find anything please help?

Seek an allergist: Melissa, your question is not a simple one. Food allergy is different than just positive blood tests, which is different than someone having positive skin tests. This is why a board certified allergist is needed to sort out these issues with you. Sometimes an in-office food challenge is required - I would not just 'try and see' on your own. It is the job of the allergist to give you adequate info. ...Read more

Ive?: Have never heard of ive. However avoidance is of primary importance and don't let anyone tell you that any genetically modified peanuts or soy is non-allergenic until scientifically proven. Although there is cross-sensitivity in term of skin test reaction between soy and peanut, rarely would a peanut-allergic person react to soy. Make sure that these are not just skin or blood test findings. ...Read more
