"1. Soy has been eaten in great quantities by many people for hundreds (if not thousands) of years. It has not been shown to be harmful, even in high doses.
2. Phytoestrogens are very weak. Our environment is full of chemically produced estrogens that are even stronger than those produced by the human body. Because of the way estrogens lock into estrogen receptors in the body, current thought is that it is better for these receptors to be locked up with mild plant estrogens than with strong chemical estrogens."

Children's reaction to soy varies. I think there is no harm in soy milk in general, but:
when we tried to supplement cow milk with an occasional cup of soy milk, our baby girl threw up like there was no tomorrow. After having done this experiment twice, we decided to stay away from it. I love soy milk myself, by the way.
