Laboratory tests now show soy does not reduce mens testosterone. Soy also does NOT contain estrogen.
It turns out soy only has PHYTOestrogen which is not the human form, it’s only the PLANT form which does not have the same effect on humans.
In fact, soy actually BLOCKED female estrogen, real estrogen was found in meat, and men who ate soy had higher testosterone and meat eaters had more female estrogen and had lower testosterone.
Steak and Meat was found to contain quantities of actual female estrogen.
SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE: SOY DOES NOT HAVE FEMINIZING EFFECTS ON MEN
ANALYSIS: "Soybean isoflavone exposure does not have feminizing effects on men" – NIH National Institute of Health
"Neither isoflavone supplements nor isoflavone-rich soy affect total or free testosterone levels. Clinical evidence also indicates that isoflavones have no effect on sperm. There is essentially no evidence from the nine identified clinical studies that soy isoflavone exposure affects estrogen levels in men."
LABORATORY TESTS REVEAL SOY ESTROGEN MYTH IS A HOAX.
PUBMED JOURNAL: "Clinical studies show no effects of soy protein or isoflavones on reproductive hormones in men"
"32 reports involving 36 treatment groups and 15 placebo-controlled treatment groups with baseline and ending measures involving soy, isoflavones, genistein, phytoestrogens, red clover, androgens, testosterone, and SHBG, were analyzed. CONCLUSION: The results of this meta-analysis found that neither soy foods nore soy isoflavone supplements alter measures of bioavailable Testosterone concentrations in men. There was no effect.
METASTUDY: REVIEW OF OVER 15 STUDIES SHOW NO ESTROGENIC EFFECT OF SOY ON MEN’S TESTOSTERONE
SCIENCE: "Review finds NO Effect of soy on testosterone" – METAREVIEW STUDY
Despite rumours often spread on the internet, "A review of 15 studies into the influence of soy proteins or isoflavones on male hormones has found No evidence of an estrogen-like effect." These rumours stemmed from a handful of flawed reports. "The authors criticized the studies that reported lowered testosterone levels for their methodology." One of them had only 12 subjects in it. In another, the researchers forgot to include a control, and final readings, rendering their results useless. In another one the entire result was due to just 1 subject. The soy scares were based on this flawed science. It was actually found that Soy does not cause breast cancer, protstate cancer, thyroid problems, infant formula problems, or estrogenic effects, on the contrary "Eating soy demonstrated protection against breast cancer, prostate cancer, and heart disease." Eating Soy was confirmed benficial. For women, children, and indeed men.
REVIEW FINDS NO SUCH EFFECT OF SOY ON MEN OR TESTOSTERONE:
NEWS: "Scientific Review finds no effect of soy on testosterone"
By Caroline Scott-Thomas, 30-Jun-2009
"Results suggest that consumption of soy foods or isoflavone supplements would Not result in the adverse effects associated with lower [testosterone] levels." "No significant effects of soy protein or isoflavone intake on T [testosterone] or SHBG [sex hormone-binding globulin] were found." There was no effect of soy on testosterone.
AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR CANCER RESEARCH: SOY HAS NO ESTROGEN, SOY ESTROGEN MYTH IS AN UN-SCIENTIFIC HOAX.
AICR: "Men Don’t Need to Fear Soy Foods" -American Institute for Cancer Research
It’s no wonder that men who have read the recent stories circulating about soy are confused. Some stories claim that soy foods, such as tofu and soy milk, can lead to breast growth or reduce testosterone levels. Fears that the amount of phytoestrogens in moderate amounts of soy foods could stimulate men’s breast tissue or reduce their testosterone are not based on sound research. A study of children fed soy protein formula for more than six months showed no hormonal effects. A study of men found that the men who ate soy foods twice a day for three months showed NO change in testosterone levels. Soy does not cause prostate cancer, on the contrary, the studies showed eating soy by men was beneficial in lowering the risk of prostate cancer. Men can feel safe.
SCIENCE: NOT ONLY DOES SOY *NOT* CONTAIN ESTROGEN, SOY *BLOCKS* ESTROGEN
SCIENCE NEWS: "Soy Phytoestrogens May Block Estrogen Effects"
"Isoflavones may protect against the more powerful estrogen produced by the body." "The addition of high levels of dietary soy isoflavones tended to block estrogen." -Senior investigator J. Mark Cline, D.V.M., Ph.D.
BODYBUILDING MAGAZINES CONFIRM IT:
MUSCULAR DEVELOPMENT: "SOY PROTEIN HAS NO EFFECT ON TESTOSTERONE LEVELS"
"The meta-analysis examined 47 research reports covering 51 treatment groups. Peer-reviewed studies. The analysis concluded that neither soy protein nor isoflavone supplementation exerted any negative alterations on bioavailable testosterone in males, regardless of research model. Soy did not exert any estrogen-like effects in men, nor any lowering of testosterone levels or other reproductive hormones."
IRONMAN CONFIRMS: SOY PROTEIN HAS NO EFFECT ON MEN, SOY HAS NO EFFECT ON TESTOSTERONE
IRONMAN MAGAZINE: "Eating soy has No effect on either testosterone or estrogen levels"
"You see the caution on countless Internet sites related to bodybuilding: Avoid eating soy products unless you want to lower your testosterone count. At first glance the dire warnings about soy are plausible…However, actual scientific research found that soy protein and isoflavone intake had No significant effects on testosterone. Neither total nor free testosterone was negatively affected by dietary soy in Any of the studies. None. Also, Studies confirmed Soy has no negative effect on thyroid hormones. Both whey and soy proved superior to casein in aiding muscle protein synthesis in young men. Eating soy will have no effect on either testosterone or estrogen. – STRAIGHT FROM "IRONMAN BODYBUILDING" MAGAZINE
If you’ve been on a meat-based diet, you’ve been eating actual female feminine Estrogen.
