Calling All Soy Lovers
Researchers in the US are studying the potential health risk of long-term exposure to plant-based oestrogens like those in soy foods. One in particular, genistein, is linked with fertility problems. It is also classified as an endocrine disruptor by the US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences as it can interfere with bodily systems that are controlled by your hormones. The findings are preliminary, but if you consume soy milk, tofu and miso regularly consider taking a break if you are trying to conceive.
