Soy’s the worst plant by far for plant toxins (phytates, phytoestrogens, goitrogens etc). Doses of various extracts equivalent to 40g or so of edamame have been shown to do things like lower testosterone, increase estrogen, slow muscle growth and induce hypothyroidism in subclinical hypothyroid patients. You can reduce the toxins somewhat by thoroughly preparing them, but they still may be best avoided if you have any hormone issues or suboptimal iodine intake. Plants have many downsides that tend to be ignored in vegetarian/vegan nutritional mythology 😉
