I am a big fan of all things soya… tofu, soya milk, soya yoghurt, miso, tempeh… I love it! Over the years, I’ve written many articles about soya; the nutritional benefits, the health effects, the supposed health risks. All three subjects are covered in the fact sheet I wrote for the Vegetarian & Vegan Foundation (VVF) and in more depth in a guide written for VVF too. In the Guardian last year, I wrote about the anti-soya scaremongers and this month, the journal Network Health Dietitians published my latest article on soya. Taken together, the research on soya and health clearly shows that soya is a safe, nutritious food that offers a range of health benefits. The vast majority of scare stories are based on animal or test-tube experiments that bear no relevance to human health. These stories are circulated largely by the Weston A. Price Foundation; a looney tunes organisation with crazy ideas about what constitutes a healthy diet. You couldn’t make it up! There is even a dead parrot in the story… (Monty Python fans will get the joke). They are very anti-soya and put as much effort into bad-mouthing this humble bean as they do promoting saturated animal fat. Anyway, my writing is based on peer-reviewed science, so please, have a read and let me know what you think.
