People have told me that tofu is supposed to take on the whatever other flavors are around it... I dunno, I didn't like it either *shrugs*
Tofu is not good for you. For one thing, it's very estrogenic. So if you're a guy and have been eating it and suddenly been interested in watching episodes of "The Bachelor" and "Say Yes to the Dress"...... cut back
but these types of things only make a difference if you consume large amounts of it, correct? Or so I've heard...
Here are are a few articles about Soy and health:
From a health cult started by a dentist. Try a medpub search.
Yet another ad hominem remark... Says a lot.
People can simply read the articles, weigh the evidence and decide for themselves.
Btw...These articles were not written by Dr. Price. Contributors to this site vary widely but most are highly credentialed. For example Dr. Mary Enig
is a regular contributor. She is best known for her work that proved Trans-Fats ( Artificial Fat made from vegetable oils) are harmful.
Yeah and Creation Scientists can drum out some physicists to back their agenda as well.
pubmed > internet cultery
Wow..All I hear from you are pot shots and fuzzy metaphors.
You just offer internet guruism. Real peer reviewed research, please. (There is little consensus, to save you the time.) I've already provided links to places you can go where these things are studied in detail.
How the Holy Fathers got by without your new "insights" into diet, I'll never know.
And an ad hominem is not a fallacy always btw.
I just posted Mary Enig's wikipedia page that lists all of her published papers. She is co-founder of the Weston Price Foundation...
