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.
1. Our overall intestine length/anus to mouth distance ratio is between that of a dog and a cat. Dogs are Carnivorous, but they can survuve without meat and cats are obligit carnivores (if they don't eat meat long enough they die), we are non-obligit carnivores like dogs.
2. If a male has a body weight of 250 lbs or more and is competitive in a strength sport, which means he definitely is consuming 1.5-2 grams of protien per pound, he's real close or over 500g a day and probably the picture of perfect health. The fact that a miniscule ammount of soy supplementation can settle post-menopausal women with similar effect as estrogen therapy is all the eveidence I need to know I want no parts of that shit. Also, all legumes are shitty and wreak havock on the human carnivorous digestive system.
Bottom line is vegetarianism/veganism (I don't recognize a real difference) is not meant for human consumption and is always derived from irrational religious beliefs. If you don't believe that, bring a rack of ribs to as 7th Day church picnic and watch the reaction
