Leo Babauta On Soy...

Answered on August 19, 2014

I originally posted this question in the what's so bad about soy thread but upon request I've decided to make it into it's own question.

Leo Babauta of Zen Habits just released an article on soy and it's been circulating all around twitter/the internet today. Basically he is saying that all the bad info on soy is a scam...(fyi he is a vegetarian and does mention his fear of saturated fats in the article as well as the China Study but he does make some interesting points....)

Here's the link http://zenhabits.net/soy/

What do you guys all think? How can we respond? I know for me answering people's questions of "why don't you eat soy" can be difficult...

Also I haven't heard of the Weston A. Price Foundation, what is it?

PS First official question here!!

I normally enjoy his blog, but I was so frustrated reading this post today. He warns against eating too much saturated fat (he's lost a lot of weight and gotten into shape while eating a vegan diet) and mentioned the well-documented dangers of eating red meat.

Unfortunately, he doesn't accept comments on his site.
