I'm confused. I heard that soy is unhealthy for women.

I got them at Whole Foods today!

Im split on the soy debate...I've heard a lot of conflicting news...my cousin is a nutritionist in NYC and she says EVERYTHING consumed should be in moderation - as long as I am getting my protein from other sources (fish, lean meats, beans, etc) it's not unhealthy. But that's one nutritionists opinion.

They say soy is unhealthy for everyone. But there are multiple ethnic groups that have been eating soy for a billion years or something. haha

lol the hot and spicy flavor is made from shiitake mushrooms!

The only drawback to all types of jerky is the high sodium content. but for a quick snack that's portable and high in protein, it's hard to beat jerky.

Funny you should mention whole foods, i have their website open right now because I'm headed there tonight. The problem I get when I walk in there is that I want to buy everything.

And the store in Bellevue is 56,044 square feet (listed on their website )

Like the OP said I've heard/read both sides of the story. Here's a good article.
Soy and Hormone Related Cancers - Caring4Cancer

But then you see stuff like this:
Is soy healthy?

I agree with what the caring 4 cancer website says, though

"The bottom line is that there is not enough research, to know with 100% certainty, that soy foods are helpful, harmful or completely neutral (neither helpful nor harmful) for women with a history of breast or other hormone related cancer.

However, at Caring4Cancer.com, after reviewing hundreds of studies on soy foods and breast cancer, we believe that soy food can be a healthy part of a woman's diet, even if she has a history of breast cancer or other hormone related cancer. "

^holy SCHNIKES!! the one I go to is in Tustin, CA...not sure how big is in SF but its HUGE! It's true about the high sodium in jerky - of any kind, but I really love jerky...

Here's an interesting article (its old - circa 2000) on Soy from the FDA

Soy: Health Claims for Soy Protein, Questions About Other Components

Pretty much the gist is:
"The problem, researchers say, is that (soy) isoflavones are phytoestrogens, a weak form of estrogen that could have a drug-like effect in the body. This may be pronounced in postmenopausal women, and some studies suggest that high isoflavone levels might increase the risk of cancer, particularly breast cancer. Research data, however, are far from conclusive, and some studies show just the opposite--that under some conditions, soy may help prevent breast cancer. It is this scientific conundrum, where evidence simultaneously points to benefits and possible risks, that is causing some researchers to urge caution.

Unlike the controversy surrounding soy isoflavones, available evidence on soy protein benefits is much clearer. That's why FDA limited its health claim to foods containing intact soy protein. The claim does not extend to isolated substances from soy protein such as the isoflavones genistein and daidzein."

That's that ostrich meat stuff right? I see that at the gym sometimes. I haven't tried it yet though. I just try to avoid jerky, because of the sodium.

you should be taking protein shakes after workouts, though
