Asians NEVER ate "lots and lots" of soy. TC TC, once again, publicly announces his idiocy. http://www.johnleemd.com/store/soy_menopause.html "Traditional Asian soy foods such as tofu, tempeh, and miso have been a dietary staple in that part of the world for centuries, and they are increasingly found in Western diets."
