Soya? Is it bad for you?

Writing about web page http://www.guardian.co.uk/food/Story/0,,1828158,00.html?gusrc=rss

Apparently, if you feed Soya beans to Canaries it kills them, or a least makes them infertile. Soya contains plant oestrogens which heavily disrupt the hormone balance of the birds. Yet Soya is used heavily in all processed food. Soya is also seen as a healthy replacement to milk. The arguments for it contain references to the health of the orientals who include it in their diet. But traditional Soya is fermented for approximately 18 months to release the proteins and remove the anti–nutrients and the only reference to raw Soya consumption comes from the monks who used it to remove the libido. So Soya could just be another health fad gone wrong!
