Vegetarian – Soya for big breasts

Muahahar…I can’t help it. Long time ago, I wrote a humorous post ‘Soya and big breasts‘ that eating too much soy products can cause men to have breasts due to the high level of oestrogen , the female hormones in soya beans.

The humble soya bean may play a role in the problem of male infertility, a team of researchers in Belfast has found.

Soya contains the female hormone oestrogen and too much of it is being linked to poor quality sperm.

Dr Lorraine Anderson says she found the link in research carried out at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

On regular days, I dislike soya bean drink and soy products. But whenever I am on vegetarian fasting, soy foods are my only source of comfort. I missed chewing meat so I make do with soy products. Here are my dose of soy products today :

soya bean cakes and vegetarian eggs

Two pieces of taukua or soya bean cake and two ‘fake eggs’ which are soya bean skin turned rolled into shapes like eggs. I rub some salt and fried them really crispy on the outside and soft inside. Dip it in Thai chillies sauce and it makes a nice meal.

I hope it works in my favour. 😉

One note : Pregnant moms, don’t over do it with the soya if you are pregnant. The same article also mentioned that if you are expecting a baby boy, all those extra female hormones may screw up your future son.
