Is Soya Safe?
There is a huge amount of misinformation and downright daftness about soya which is why the Vegetarian & Vegan Foundation (VVF) has launched this website dedicated to informing and myth-busting.
The VVF get more nutritional enquiries about soya than any other subject! Nearly every day someone emails or telephones the VVF to ask if soya is safe, can it harm children? Will it feminise boys? Does it contain hormones? Our soya fact sheets are used for health food shop staff training and have been requested by a leading soya milk manufacturer to hand out at public talks.
