Well, well, well. I was most amused to see the recent JAMA report that the much-touted benefits of soy isoflavones were…hmmmmm, how shall we put it gently…overblown. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that meat eaters should eat meat, for crying out loud. We wrote about the potential health dangers of soy in The Protein Power LifePlanin 2000. Only took six more years for the breaking news to hit the papers.
Now, what to do with all that soy? I think ADM needs to convert all those rippling green fields of soybeans they’ve been marketing to us as healthy into Earth-friendly, carbon-neutral, All-American biodiesel to help free us from dependence on Arab oil. Now THAT would be a worthy use for a soybean.
