On today’s show… what’s up with soy?

You’ve likely all heard someone claim that soy is bad for health, causes breast cancer, lowers testosterone and makes men grow boobs. 

But where did this all come from? And what does the evidence have to say about  it.

I dive into it that with Dr. Nagra to provide all you soy boys and girls with an easy to digest resource to understand the science on soy, and to share it with all of your skeptical friends.
