Soy Saps Sperm Count
It appears that Darwinism has stepped in to prevent nature from allowing more soy fans to walk the earth. According to a new report in the Journal of Human Reproduction, consumption of even small amounts of soy products can lower a man's sperm concentration.
Of the men in the study, those who ate the most soy had sperm counts far lower than those who reported eating no soy at all. On average, the soy eaters had 41 million fewer sperm per milliliter. The study found that the soy eaters consumed a relatively low amount of 15 soy-based foods including tofu, soy burgers, soy ice cream (yuck), soy energy bars, and even miso soup - an average of just one serving of every other day.
And remember, if the vegetarian Nazis had their way, everyone would be eating soy at practically EVERY MEAL!
Of course, the soy advocates are saying this reduction in sperm is no big deal (they must be women…). They claim that if you apply this 41 million sperm per milliliter reduction to a man with an average sperm count (in the range of 80 to 120 million sperm per milliliter), that a man is still left with a sperm count that's "well above" the 20 million sperm per milliliter that's the minimum count within the normal range. That's just pure rationalization in the face of the facts if you ask me.
The study's lead researcher Jorge Chavarro of the Harvard School of Public Health claims that other studies have found that soy consumption actually boosts sperm counts (I doubt it). As a result, he says, "I think there is not enough evidence to reach any strong conclusion or advise men one way or the other on whether soy foods can affect their fertility."
Nonsense! None of this should be a surprise. In addition to all of the other negatives about soy that I'm always telling you about, the isoflavones in soy have long been tied to infertility in animal studies. So why should humans be any different?
Take my advice: steer clear of soy if you want to keep your health - or start a family.
