I experienced going a whole year without having a menstruation…This all happened in conjunction with a high soy diet. I went on a soy craze with tofu, soy beans, soy protein, soy cheese, soy yogurt and soy milk which were my staples. As I ate soy every day I wondered why I kept gaining weight and on top of that never had my monthly periods.

“Myth: Asians consume large amounts of soy foods.
