Dangers of soy products....

On TV last weekend, down here in Oz, there was a piece about the dangers of soy eaten daily, because soy contains large amounts of phytoestrogens. Especially a problem for women with a history of, or a predisposition to, estrogen-triggered breast cancer. The presenters also emphasised the danger of feeding estrogen-rich soy breast-milk substitute to babies, toddlers and young children. The effects on the developing sexual organs and sex hormone systems are to be worrried about. All logical, on the face of it.
As an A, I eat/drink a lot of soy - soy milk, soy cream cheese, soy cheese, tofu, tempeh, soy "peanut-butter". Now I am worried, because my mother died of breast cancer.
Anyone have more information about the effect of phytoestrogens eaten on a daily basis on women's bodies? Or any other data relating to the daily consumption of high levels of plant estrogens on human health?

Phytoestrogens are only part of the picture.
