    Default soy

    Does soy have any benefit for hormonal hair loss in younger women? I know you recommend soy as a natural alternative to menopausal women in your book so I was wondering if soy could lower testosterone in younger women ( I am 24 years old) I have read conflicting information about this on the internet. Thankyou

    I tend to advocate soy because I am vegetarian and think it is much healthier as a protein source than meat. It is good to include in one's diet but I doubt it will have much effect on testosterone.
