The dangers of soy estrogen continues to be an inflammatory issue. Dr. Neil Barnard, the President of The Physician Committee for Responsible Medicine, has recently published an article at Huffington Post where he reviewed the most recent research on soy, and once again concluded that soy is safe for you to eat.
Dr. Barnard on soy and breast cancer:
"What about women who have already been diagnosed with breast cancer? A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2009 shows that soy products may reduce the risk of recurrence (4). In a group of 5,042 women previously diagnosed with breast cancer who were participating in the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study over a four-year period, those who regularly consumed soy products, such as soymilk, tofu, or edamame, had a 32 percent lower risk of recurrence and a 29 percent decreased risk of death, compared with women who consumed little or no soy."

I do believe, just like you, that soy protein isolates are to be avoided because of the way they are produced that make their effects MSG-like. For this reason I avoid processed soy foods, happily using tofu and edamame in my whole foods plant-based menu.
