From Robert Cohen 

My most often asked question:

"What do you know about the dangers of soy?"

You might also ask me:

What do you know about the danger of apples?
What do you know about the danger of broccoli?
What do you know about the danger of carrots?
What do you know about the danger of grapes?

My response to you would be that fruits, veggies, grains and legumes are filled with vitamins, enzymes, fiber, and phytonutrients, bioflavinoids, and isoflavones. Research has shown that these magic plant chemicals are more than just internal cleansers. Isoflavones prevent cancers, shrink existing tumors, lower cholesterol levels, and prevent bone loss. There are 12 major categories of these life-sustaining plant isoflavones. Apples represent one, broccoli, one, carrots one, grapes one. Soy contains six of the twelve.

I am quite familiar with the negative soy postings and soy controversies. Some people have twisted research and used animal studies to make convoluted and illogical assumptions regarding soy. Here are some of the things I have written, in response. See:
