    A widely distributed article Tragedy and Hype : Third International Soy Symposium written by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig in March 2000 documents a series of issues relating to soy consumption.

    They claim that “Soy is the next asbestos”, that it contains “anti-nutrients”, causes dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, reproductive problems and much more.

    The book The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America's Favorite Health Food is written by Kaayla Daniel. Sally Fallon was the editor of the book.
