The Trouble With Tofu: Soy and the Brain
 
"In a major ongoing study involving 3,734 elderly Japanese-American men, those who ate the most tofu during midlife had up to 2.4 times the risk of later developing Alzheimer's disease. As part of the three-decade long Honolulu-Asia Aging Study, 27 foods and drinks were correlated with participants' health. Men who consumed tofu at least twice weekly had more cognitive impairment, compared with those who rarely or never ate the soybean curd."
 
"Plants such as soy are making oral contraceptives to defend themselves, says Claude Hughes, Ph.D., a neuroendocrinologist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. They evolved compounds that mimic natural estrogen. These phytoestrogens can interfere with the mammalian hormones involved in reproduction and growth a strategy to reduce the number and size of predators."

"Nonfermented soy products contain an ingredient called phytic acid. This substance can inhibit your body's ability to bind with certain nutrients, thus this form of soy may not be as valuable as fermented soy products."
