Soy Warning

www.ironmanmagazine.comAccording to the May/June ’12 Well Being Journal, “Researchers have reported lowered testosterone and higher estrogen levels in males who consume foods rich in soy estrogens.

Scientists have even induced ‘testosterone deprivation’ in animals simply by feeding them isoflavone-rich diets.”

Eating soy every so often is fine, but if you want to keep your muscle-building hormones high, avoid it most of the time.
