Some say soy is heart-healthy. Others consider it a food that is a perfect protein, making it an ideal meat substitute. Dr. Anthony Jay has a different perspective. He suggests that soy is problematic. Anthony has a Ph.D. in biochemistry and works at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is also the author of â€œEstrogeneration.â€ He describes soy as an â€œestrogenicâ€ food, meaning that it acts like estrogen in our bodies, which can lead to dysfunction and a number of ailments. In todayâ€™s episode, Anthony explains why there is so much conflicting information on soy and how to make sense of it all. He makes clear why we should care, guides us on how muchâ€”or rather, how littleâ€”we should consume, and describes in detail the cumulative effects of soy on our health.
