Eating Soy: Don’t Believe the Hype

Over the last couple of years, soy has gotten a pretty bad rep. This troubles me on a personal level, because I love my tofu. And my miso. And soy sauce. And edamame. But if that’s the truth, then I will except it. If that’s the truth. And recently, I’ve come to question that truth. […]
