Dr Mercola has articles stressing the damage soy can do unless it is fermented which is only a few soy products. Soy milk and edamame are not on the list of safe soy as they are not fermented. Both are damaging to gut lining and, according to his research articles, hormone disruptive. Since he is careful to have extensive research and studies supporting his study, this is very conflicting. I often work with women that have major hormone issues. It’s troublesome to see two highly respected doctors -Dr Mercola and Dr Greger at opposite ends of the spectrum on soy -unless I am missing a component in this info vs Dr Mercolas?
