Too Much of a Good Thing? / Controversy rages over the world's most regaled legume

"It's soy, and it's now in almost every single processed food we buy at supermarkets and health food stores. As America's favorite 'health food,' it promises to make us skinny and lower our cholesterol, prevent cancer and reduce menopausal symptoms, put us in a better mood, give us energy. It's the cheap and guilt-free source of protein for millions of vegetarians, the 'heart smart' option for carnivores, the infant formula du jour for eco-minded moms. Soy has become one of the America's biggest industries.

And it may be making us sicker than we've ever been. "

Depressing, yet just as we probably all expected.
