Unfortunately, most soy in the US is a genetically modified "food" and gives us toxins to negate any benefit.

Is it true that men should avoid too much soy? Too much Estrogen in soy?

Is tofu generally made with soy isolate? I've heard of people making their own tofu from soy beans.

I would think if organic soy beans were used to make tofu in would be a healthful food used in moderation.

Is that true?

I am a 48 yr old female who had a reaction to consuming too much isolated soy protein (in packaged diet food, a nationally known program which shall remain nameless). I suffered from urticaria (severe all-over-body rash, except face and palms/soles) for 6 weeks even after I had stopped consuming the packaged food. Treatment included short-term prednisone and lots of patience. I wouldn't wish the experience on my worst enemy, if I had one...

Tofu is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the curds into blocks. Isolated soy protein is a processed food, made from dehulled defatted soybean meal, and is used by the food industry.
