Pointing Fingers to Soy

I was asked to re-post a wonderful article entitled "The Dark Side of Soy" by a reader. What about this article in particular, out of all of the articles that I read about nutrition, makes it wonderful?

It's nod to bio-individuality which is the cornerstone of my own philosophy and that of Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Excerpt: Clinical nutritionist Ed Bauman, head of Bauman Clinic in Sebastopol, California, and director of Bauman College. Bauman cautions against painting the (soy) bean with a broad brush. "As with any food, it can have benefits in one system and detriments in another."

This article concludes that an approach to food founded on diversity and moderation will often prevent many issues from arising in the first place.

Kaayla Daniel, author of The Whole Soy Story (New Trends, 2005) and Bauman agree on the benefits of variety. "My experience as a clinical nutritionist is that people who have a varied diet tend not to get into trouble," says Daniel.

Soy is a controversial topic in the field of nutrition and has been for years...I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts, comments and articles on all things soy!
