    Hi Neha,

    This is a wonderful site you have here and I am learning a lot.

    Can you publish something about the health benefits and dangers of Soya Milk. Recently I have included Soy Milk in my diet 2-3 times a week (200 ml Hershey’s Sofit) and taking the natural flavoured one. However, while just casually researching I have found some sites that say that Soy milk is not good for men as it triggers high level of estrogen release in the body.

    I have lunch at around 11 and go for light fruit / oat biscuits / soy milk in the noon at 3. Is there any substitute for the same?

    Thanks,
    Kunal

      Hey hie… there are lots of issues regarding the benefits and hazaeds of soy milk. In my advice it is safe for a boy or men to have 1glass of soymilk a day. Concentration of estrogen is not to high that it will imbalance your hormones.

      Regards
