Soy. Mention its benefits in polite company and brace yourself for a barrage of questions and accusations directed at soy and all the products made from it. The last decade has seen a mountain of anti-soy rhetoric along with allegations, rumours and confusion.

Soy in fact has a venerable history spanning fifty centuries of Asian culture, and has been the subject of seventy years of western scientific research. 'The Skinny on Soy' speaks with top experts in the field to shed light on the issues and sort out the misinformation from the common sense.

This much-needed book gives the facts about soy -- its safety, its history and its benefits -- based on peer-reviewed research. It is for any health-conscious consumer who wants to eat less meat but has been discouraged from eating soy for all the wrong reasons.
