Eat Soy... And Turn Gay!

Big Scoop From WorldNetDaily:
Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That's why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today's rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products.

Yes. That's right. Soy products progressively destroy your "manliness" and turns you into a pillow-biter.

Except... This theory doesn't seem to make any sense. The people in Asia (the continent, not the band) have integrated soy into their diets for several centuries. Oddly enough, these people seem to be quite fertile. In addition, nobody appears to have noticed more gay men in Asia than anywhere else. If soy really did make men gay, then I would expect Asia to be muuuuuuuuuuch gayer than Mexico. Or Brazil. or America. But that's not really the case.

Is soy the perfect health food? No. Should we be concerned with the increased use of soy or any GMO product in our diets? Of course, but that's an issue that goes beyond soy, and that's not a real concern of WorldNetDaily.

But that's not the only leap of faith in this article. Here's a winner:
Research in 2000 showed that a soy-based diet at any age can lead to a weak thyroid, which commonly produces heart problems and excess fat. Could this explain the dramatic increase in obesity today?

No, it doesn't. The 'dramatic increase in obesity' in the United States is not demonstrated in the aisles of Whole Foods or Central Market. If you want to see the fattties get fatter, take a trip over to Taco Bell or Wal-Mart. Head down to your local Chinese Buffet. Take a look at what the fatties are eating, and I will guarantee you that it isn't soy-based. This has got to be one of the dumbest arguments that I have ever heard. You might as well say that America's obesity epidemic is a result of 100,000 that quit smoking. (I guarantee that more people quit smoking last year than started a soy-based diet!)
P.S.: Soy sauce is fine. Unlike soy milk, it's perfectly safe because it's fermented, which changes its molecular structure. Miso, natto and tempeh are also OK, but avoid tofu.

Not all soy sauces are fermented, some are now chemically processed. Also, soy sauce is somewhere around 15% sodium. Is it possible that soy sauce leads to a weak thyroid which results in heart problems and excess fat, and that's why there are so many obese people in America? It must be. Case closed.
