I am not an expert in this by any means, but I have alrays avoided soy milk, and have refused to let my wife feed our boy (2 1/2 years old) soy milk (or, when he was a baby, soy formula). My wife is now a beleiver in the potential dangers of soy, especially for males, and has mentioned the dangers to several of her friends who have bought into the whole “soy is the ultimate health food” story.
Her friends are interested in hearing more, as they all want the best for their kids and don’t want to risk endangering their health. Can someone who is more versed in this subject help me out by giving me links or references to studies that have shown soy to be harmful to young children (especially males)?
I’m not talking about the typical Internet-scare Mercola crap, as that type of thing will be immediately suspect to my wife’s friends. I’m talking about scientific, peer-reviewed type stuff.
Any help would be appreciated. I’d like to help my wife’s friends “see the light” about the dangers of soy, especially as they are feeding this stuff to their young children.
