I really thought I was done with the subject of soy and hormones, but here I am rehashing it… yet again. Once more fighting a misconception that just won’t give up the damned ghost.
Recently, a story began making rounds that a veterinarian, a Dr. James Stangle of South Dakota, made the claim that soy protein, as found in plant-based burgers such as the Impossible Burger, feminizes men by increasing their estrogen levels.
In my opinion, and from my own experiences and observations, people don’t dislike vegans because we take a stand for our beliefs and avoid animal products. Rather, the grievances I most often encounter are that vegans come across as sanctimonious, self-righteous, and even downright vicious and insane. Or, at the very least, whiny and insufferable.
Carnivores postulate about a so-called “vegan agenda”, while, seemingly, making it their mission in life, or at least here on the interwebs, to obsesses and pour vitriol over our community. All in attempts to destroy the movement.
