MEN, say no to tofu!

Forget quiche, it’s tofu that’s strictly for the ladies according to this fascinating piece of research from the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston.
Eating just a half serving a day of soy-based foods could be enough to significantly lower a man’s sperm count, according to the U.S. researchers.
A team analyzed the intake of 15 soy-based foods in 99 men who went to a fertility clinic between 2000 and 2006.
They were asked how much and how often in the prior three months they had eaten soy-rich foods including: tofu, tempeh, tofu or soy sausages, bacon, burgers and mince, soy milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream, and other soy products such drinks, powders and energy bars.
The impact was “striking” it is reported.
I’ve yet to meet a male fan of the beancurd, so I’ve a feeling that this is one piece of health advice which will be taken on board without too much controversy.
