Thats not the way I make soy!!! And yes, cysteine (and taurine, and methionine I believe) are low in soy foods. Plant protein foods are not complete proteins. Eating fish, chicken and eggs (all allowed for us A's) will cover that base. As for it being carcinogenic, then why are the largest consumers of soy in the world have the lowest rates of cancer? Also, why do hundreds of scientific medical studies back this fact up??? As for a food lacking an amino acid (cysteine) make the rest of the protein "useless" shows the complete lack of physiological biochemistry that the author has. Because there is an amino acid missing the rest can be used in a million plus functions.
This is another unfounded attemt to smear soy. Good luck to them!! The only problem is some people may believe them. Thanks for bringing it up though.
P.S I'll respond to the web site also.
