    I eat nearly every day whole cooked soy beans as a Snack (and chickpeas).

  • Wade Patton says:

    Soy is so underrated by most. I had tofu yesterday.

  • Kerri says:

    Does soy make men have boobs?

    • galkinp says:

      It does not. Dairy products probably because of estrogen naturally produced in breast milk. Not good since it plays with mens testosterone. Soy however, protects by producing phyto estrogen so it blocks foreign estrogen from entering.

  • Anna Pomelo says:

    I do both. HRT and soy.

  • ccamire says:

    It appears that you are not willing to share your blood results, your Vo2 max, your grip strength and your bio-age. This lacks of transparency clears shows that your book on aging is a total joke

  • Traci H says:

    Yes. Once I started eating soy I saw a significant drop in mine.
