I feel like I am responding to troll posts here.

World’s Healthiest Foods: Soy (Japan) - Healthy Eating - Health.com (http://eating.health.com/2008/02/01/worlds-healthiest-foods-soy-japan/ - broken link)

In Japan, Real Men Do Eat Tofu | Article from Chicago Sun-Times | HighBeam Research

What do Japanese people eat? - Yahoo! Answers

Folks, there are things on the internet called search engines where people can research subjects and learn the facts. Only trolls would make ridiculous statements without anything to backup what they say.

It's always amazing what people believe too, you have to think how intense one must believe in it in order to post something so out there. Everything may point the other way, but some people will find one other nut who posts something thinking the same way it's now the bible...anyone who disagrees is not part of the global conspiracy.

They would love my neighbor, she thinks the world trade center was burned down by giant mirrors, each more then twice the size of the moon. When I pointed out that people might have seen them if that was true, she yelled at me that I was one of the ones who kept her down.

I've eaten soy all my life. I'm healthy as heck. Fearmongering though, will always get the sheep to huddle en masse and bleat in terror.

I've been eating tofu for the past 30 years. At age 60, most 30 somethings have difficulting matching my pace in the weight room at my local gym, nor can they keep up with me on hikes. Could it be the tofu, or maybe the edamame?

I believe a lot of the good health some of you are experiencing is a result of other lifestyle changes and NOT he consumption of Tofu. I dont need to post links to prove my case, any idiot can post links that go in either direction pro-anti. After all the reading I have done and even after taking soy out of other peoples diets and seeing positive changes is all the proof I need. If its working for you thats fantastic, but because someone is anti-soy makes them a paranoid fear monger is ridiculous.

I won't speak for anyone else, but that is certainly the case for me. Eating tofu is just one of MANY healthy lifestyle practices that I engage in. IMO, there is no single practice in and of itself that ensures good health. Good health requires a combination of many healthy practices.

More hard facts:

National Geographics did a study on longevity on various parts of the world. Here is part of that study. It's total lifestyle that helps people live longer. Nutrition plays an important part. The people of Okinawa and California Adventist share something in their diet: soy product.

Lessons on Longevity

Most people are smart and I trust that you research the facts for yourself rather than blindly listen to some biased people who don't know the fact if it hits them in the face.

No, but spamming massive posts saying Soy is toxic, inedible, part of a government conspiracy and a threat to your health if you eat it (like the OP has jotted down) is paranoid fear mongering. What one puts in their body is their own business, when people try to change what others put in their body...you pretty much have to convince them with a pesky thing called proof, not just to trust a random person is in the know.

I don't think anyone said eating just soy makes you healthy (def not all the amino acids or vitamins you need alone), but it's one of the components that help IMHO.
