Sorry, but the two statements I have emboldened are wrong.
1. Humans are Omnivorous. There's much to be debated about the early development of the bipedal simian which is our ancestor, but internally the modern human is simply not equipped to handle a carnivore diet: the buildup of rotted meat in the lower intestine would kill us too quickly.
2. The studies regarding phytoestrogens in soy have been grossly misinterpreted and miscalculated; in order for soy to cause an unhealthy increase in oestrogen in the male human body, said male would need to be ingesting at least 500 grams of it a day.
500 grams of any protein per day is unhealthy.
