On page 30 of the Nov & Dec 2008 VegNews, there is an article titled, “Soy v. Sperm.” I found the last part of this excerpt ‘interesting’ and highlighted it in bold font. Any thoughts?
In Newspapers, Magazines, and Blogs are the world, the recent headline said it all: “Tofu a day, sperm goes away.” “Soy vey! Does eating tofu lower sperm count?” And, my favorite, “Soy-anara sperm!”
Journalist just love a good excuse to splash “sperm” across the page- which they did this past summer with porn-start bravado when a study in the online journal Human Reproduction singled out soy as a possible sperm tamer, reducing the potent protein rockets by as much as 41 million per milliliter in guys who ate just one portion of soy every two days.
Forty million! Is that enough to squelch the reproductive dreams of tofu-burger-chomping couples everywhere? Has anyone told Asians about this? Because they eat a ton of soy, most likely for the extra energy they need to keep up with all the children they’re miraculously producing with their lackluster sperm counts.
