Re: so what's the story about soy bean producing excess estrogen in the body?
I skimmed a few items at the bookvault the other day:
1) Soybeans are a primary source of phytoestrogens, which occur naturally in a lot of plants. They can help prevent breast cancer in women and can alleviate the symptoms of menopause. Good for you, girls!
2) Soy products can interact with MAO inhibitors and can trigger a dangerous level of high blood pressure which could result in death or injury. So if you're on happy drugs (I wish I were) then avoid the tyramine products. This information should be part of your visit to the doctor when prescriptions are given.
