    anyways my son was on it for a couple months and its okay for a couple months but if you raise your son on soy it can cause their voices to be feminine and cause their breast to devolop a bit

  • The APA says that soy should be a last resort, because of all the side effects. I wish I had done more research on it before giving it to my daughter. It also is believed to cause problems with fertility later in life. I never was on soy milk as a baby and I have fertility problems and so does a few of my family members. It saddens me to know that I may by some small chance made it hard for my daughter. I would have done goats milk in a second if I could go back and do it all over agian knowing what I know now.
