I've been hearing mixed messages regarding soy and soy products and their effects on estrogen levels...Is soy good or bad for you?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Bad but...
Soy has properties that mimic estrogen to a certain degree.
So obviously it would be beneficial to menopausal women with symptoms. It is not however, recommended for men or as a healthy alternative to other foods.
