I am so confused on this issue as well. I have a friend who is VERY into Weston A. Price's teachings. She raises goats, she and her family drink a lot of raw goat milk and yogurt, eat plenty of various meats and fresh butter, and will not touch soy products. She gave me a "Soy Alert" pamphlet to look over and I've read a lot of info on the website as well. Her kids are super vibrant and healthy.
My midwife on the other hand, is a vegan....and while she doesn't try to convert me to veganism, I do respect her as an herbalist and nutritionist and I believe that she really knows her stuff. In her opinion, soy products are alright in moderation (although she prefers that I use rice protein powder
for my smoothies).
I don't want to spark a big off-topic debate here
: , but I get so confused. Both my pro-animal product / anti-soy friend AND my vegan midwife seem so knowlegeable and healthy, I can't help but wonder who's right? Or are they both right in some ways? Is the Weston A. Price foundation's research on the harmful effects of soy reputable?
I'll definitely be lurking - I'd like to hear more on this topic as well.
