In brief: Processed soy
There is good evidence that fermented organic soy is part of a healthy lifestyle for men & women -think miso, tempah, etc.
.. However, the highly processed soy found in textured vegetable protein and soy milk is not healthy. Most commercial non-organic soy is processed using highly toxic hexane. I recmmend avoiding all non-organic processed soy.

In brief: In excess
Soy has some estrogen- like substances, but moderate consumption is fine.
