I've never heard that.  Did they explain why it would decrease metabolism?
This sounded odd to me, so I researched it.  Now, most of the soy studies have been done on rats, not humans, but they showed that soy increased metabolism, not decreased it.  I know we aren't rats, but I think soy is good for you in reasonable amounts, and if you like it you should eat it.  It is a mainstay of Japanese diet, and they certainly don't have a problem with obesity or slow metabolism!
oh thanks alot

i was so worried
actually males get increased estrogen levels, does that count?
We've been talking about soy on this thread, and shazm gave us an excellent run-down on the medical studies, including the effects of phytoestrogens on men.
forgive me but i am still confused, the other post says it does and some say it doesn't

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
