The dangers of Tofu

"There's a slow poison out there that's severely damaging our children and threatening to tear apart our culture," writes a gentleman named Jim Rutz in WorldNetDaily. What is this poison? you wonder. It's Soy.

"Soybean products are feminizing," writes Rutz, because they contain "substantial quantities of estrogens."

I find in Wikipedia that this is, indeed, a much-discussed controversy. The Guardian, meanwhile, feels that Soy is perfectly safe, at least as compared to that dreaded substance, cow's milk.

This is dreadful: everything we eat can harm us. I think I'll starve for a few hours and see if I feel better.
