I've seen a militant who makes false claims about chemicals estogenizing the environment & hurting men eating a tofu sandwich, which is among the highest sources of phytoestrogens. ...Read more

8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?

Despite all the grandstanding, there's little (some would say no) strong evidence that either offers health (as opposed to the very real moral) benefits when we control for other healthy lifestyle considerations. ...Read more
