Does soy estrogen make men less “manly”?

Short answer: No, and any internet “scientists” who tell you otherwise are wrong (and are probably not real scientists).

Long answer: There have been a handful of studies done that examine the effects of soy estrogen (which isn’t actually the estrogen that is found in humans, soy contains isoflavones which are functionally similar to human estrogen, but not the same) in men, and their results are generally inconclusive (Kurzer, 2002). This means that the effects of these isoflavones in men are insignificant and shouldn’t be a concern even in cases of high soy consumption. In fact, while isoflavones can have similar effects to estrogen, they can also have an antiestrogenic (decreasing the activity of estrogen) effect. In conclusion, its complicated, but the science has shown that you don’t need to be concerned about soy decreasing libido, sperm activity, or general “manliness”. As for my educated opinion, any reasonable amount of consumption of soy products is not harmful and you really have nothing to worry about, however if you consume only soy, it may be prudent to diversify your diet.
