Is soy as bad for you as everyone says?

Susan has looked into the research on soy, which is voluminous and complex. Her take at the current time is that the research, on balance, supports the health benefits of soy, and reflects the notion that the risks, short of a true allergy, are overblown. However, this is a controversial topic, and the Bright Line Eating plan can certainly be followed without ever eating soy, if you feel strongly that you want to avoid it.
