The Enemy of My Enemy is Soy

It could be argued that some of the greatest threats to modern animal agribusiness are meatless options that appeal to the masses. These are definitely improving in quality and availability, as anyone who has been veg for ten years (or, especially, longer) can tell you.

So it shouldn't be surprising that there are lots of articles floating around trying to scare people about soy. Jack has written about this, and has a page linking to his and other articles about soy -- written by actual dietitians and scientists.

Of course, "soy is dangerous" is just the kind of lie many meat-eaters want to believe, so this kind of disinformation tends to persist. It is nice to see non-vegetarian sources take it on, as in this Men's Fitness Q&A.
