There’s a lot of talk about soy nowadays, and the camps seem divided. On one hand, some say soy is bad and can increase cancer, especially breast cancer. On the other hand, there seem to be certain health benefits from eating soy. So, which is it? What exactly is soy and should you eat it?  

If you want to know the truth about soy, listen in. In this episode, I’ll address the concern that many people have about soy, including what it is, and whether it is safe to eat. You’ll hear what the current research says about soy, how it can impact our health and some key nutrients found in it. I hope this episode helps clear the confusion so you can build the best nutrition and health in your plant-based diet journey!
