  1. Is soy meat fermented or unfermented ? It is made from soy flour, I know it's processed of course but is it fermented ?

  2. Very interesting. For the past few years I kept hearing how fermented soy foods were so beneficial while unfermented ones were downright unhealthy. This makes me feel better about by my soy milk consumption :).

  3. my grandma just brought your book after I showed her the way keep doing what you're doing Greger 🙂 i dedicate this comment for my grandmother

  4. Augh, why are other sites saying that tofu and soymilk (estrogens) are harmful and miso and tempeh are not?

  5. Thank you, Dr. Greger. Please, cary on in continuing to keep us informed on the latest health and wellness discoveries.

  6. Dr.Greger is the best. Evidence based advice. Facts and humor. The right balance of skepticism and scientific maturity and rational advice.

  7. Interesting. This is exactly the opposite of what Dr. Mercola saying about fermented and non fermented soy. Maybe more research is needed…

  8. This link is not working, can you fix it? https://nutritionfacts.org/video/The-Role-of-Soy-Foods-in-Prostate-Cancer-Prevention

  9. Do your own research and consider WHY those websites are anti-soy. Meat and dairy industries know that soy is a complete protein that's actually health-promoting instead of disease-promoting like overconsumption of animal products.

    For the people who still believe that soy contains estrogen, FFS go do your own damn research. Soy DOESN'T contain estrogen because it's a damn plant, only animal products contain estrogen and other hormones. Isoflavones/ phytoestrogen in soy act as estrogen receptor antagonists mainly. In other words, this makes soy anti estrogenic, and it's why early consumption since childhood in many east Asian cultures like Japan, confers protection against reproductive cancers in women.

    In Japan it's only recently that women's reproductive cancer rates are going up, due to concurrent, increased intake of dairy and meat. In the last 15 or so years I'd noticed that every time I go back, people seem to be eating more dairy and beef, just my observation.

    Soy has been consumed in Asian cultures for thousands of years, confirming its safety (thus epidemiological evidence) and benefits. My relatives in Japan, the older and long-living ones especially, all eat soy in the form of tofu, soy milk, natto, miso, yuba skin, and okara, at least twice a day in their diet.

  10. "Among individual soy foods, only tofu yielded a significant value of 0.73 (CI = 0.57-0.92). Consumption of soybean milk, miso, or natto did not significantly reduce the risk of prostate cancer."

  11. How do you know for sure that the dramatic rise of prostate cancer deaths in South Korea over the past several decades is solely attributable to increased meat consumption? South Koreans have been omnivores for more than history can remember. Their traditional foods have included beef, pork, poultry as well as a variety of seafood, even before the "western" diet was fully introduced.

    If a diet change is the culprit for such a dramatic increase of prostate cancer deaths in South Korea, I'd say the diet change is about consuming more calories than necessary, rather than incorporating more animal products.

  12. Hi, have you ever thought of venturing into different proven natural remedies for skin issues that are not only food related but also benefit from certain natural "products"such as tea tree or any other natural ingredients that have been proven to help with skin issues. Just a thought. Videos could be on subject like: acne causes and treatments, eczema, scalp dryness, oiliness, , scalp care, natural sun protectants etc etc etc

  13. I've heard on MANY occasions that soy/soy products can cause you to grow boobs and either boost estrogen in men/boys or mimic estrogen hormones in men/boys. Just the thought makes me avoid soy/soy products altogether.

  14. Kimchi, miso, and Korean fermented soybean pastes cause cancer. His Holiness Father Greger said it. I believe it. That settles it.

  15. so you're telling us that fermented soy is not as beneficial as unfermented soy, but you're not telling us why? also the systematic review consists of 12 studies only. that's not that many.

  16. The Japanese translation is not correct! According to my Japanese mother who prefers the Japanese subtitles, says that it is talking about taxing on cigarettes and not mentioning anything regarding this video!

  17. I use bonsoy its fantastic tasting but i read this facebook post and i cant seem what to make of it

  18. I think considering the evidence of more harm than good of unfermented soy, it's best to consume fermented only and rely on other foods for protection against prostate cancer.

  19. It is fucking impossible to trust anyone at the moment. Some show scientific relevances on health benefits of soy, others on dairy, meat, etc… while others the opposite!

  20. You’re videos are so much more concise than these other doctors that tell you to “hear me out” and give you these incoherent “facts”.
