Soy: Does it Lower Testosterone?

fit man exercise 200x300Reading Time: 7 minutes Soy: Does it Lower Testosterone? The question is not as clear-cut as it may seem. Soy. Seldom has there been so much controversy about an everyday food. So much debate. So much emotion. Soy Has Even Become Politicized That’s right, especially in America.

testosterone hormones 300x200Reading Time: 8 minutes It’s a fact. Men’s testosterone levels are plummeting. Countless studies have found that men’s testosterone levels have been declining for decades.

lead testosterone researcher 300x200Reading Time: 5 minutes For decades the medical community accepted the fact that testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) should never be prescribed for aging men due to the increased risk of prostate cancer.
