Eating excess amounts of soy products such as tofu and veggie burgers slightly may increase erectile dysfunction risk, according to research published in the latest edition of the journal Nutrition.
In this study scientists investigated a case study of a man that adopted a diet heavy in soy protein. Soon after eating soy, the research subject reported low libido and an inability to maintain an erection. When doctors intervened and eliminated soy from his diet, his ED disappeared.
Scientists aren’t sure how soy man contribute to ED but hypothesize that soy isoflavones –compounds in soy that resemble estrogen—may interfere with penile function.
This study is obviously not very scientific since there was only one subject. There are however several other studies and indicators that processed soy may contribute to ED. And that’s especially troubling since processed soy is now added to pretty much any processed food in the supermarket.
