The facts and fiction about the effects of soy on men, their testosterone levels and hair loss are explored in this article written for HairLoss.com, where I am the fitness and nutrition section editor. Because there is a lot of unsubstantiated chatter on the Internet – in particularly, on bodybuilding blogs and e-commerce sites – about the pros and cons of soy for men, I sought expert (read: scientifically supported) findings and positions from WebMD, MayoClinic.com, and Dr.Andrew Weil. Conclusions: soy can be a good source of protein and unsaturated fat and it might have a slight benefit (not yet proven) in blocking DHT, a contributing factor in hair loss.
