The soy eaten in Japan is different from that in the US. Japanese only use fermented soy, because the other isn't any good for you.

Japanese don’t really consume a lot of soy at all. That’s an American misconception. I remember this Japanese girl making fun of Americans because we put soy sauce on everything. She also made fun of the fact that we eat sushi with chopsticks when sushi is a finger food. It’s also important to note that when they eat tofu it’s usually small amounts added to a soup. Everything Americans eat that’s fried is fried in soybean oil. I wouldn’t be surprised that Americans consume more soy then the Japanese.

Well, there's miso, but I think your point stands. The Japanese eat soy for what it is, and not as a filler or replacement for something else.

This is why I don't trust the vegan Asian foods you see at the grocery stores. There's plenty of vegetarians, especially in India, but has anyone met a vegan? It always struck me as a western thing.

I've met a vegan before. He said it is cruel to kill animals for their meat.

I had an interesting idea, if we can grow meat in a lab then that meat does not come from an animal obviously. So I asked the vegan if he would eat lab grown meat and he immediately perked up and said he absolutely would.

It's an interesting predicament. These people live sheltered lives away from the reality of real life and killing to survive and are now being sold on the idea of lab grown meat which opens them up to unnatural chemicals used to create the thing they crave naturally, meat.

Even if you don’t believe in killing animals, you should be able to drink milk or eat eggs. It’s the people who shun all animal-derived foods that are sickly.

Bingo. Lack of b12 literally forces the brain to steal nutrients from the body to keep going. When that supply starts running low then bad shit happens. Folate deficiency anaemia has a long list of nasty shit that can be avoided by, well, eating something as simple as a burger.

Ergo, majority of vegans induce an inevitable stage of physical and mental retardation through nutrient deficiency.

Vegetarians are sickly, too.

Oh yes,

BasedEngineer 5 points ago +5 / -0

Veganism is an objectively unhealthy diet, it's a good way to be nutrient deficient. Vegetarianism is a pseudo-healthy diet in many cases as. You'd be hard pressed to find a vegetarian that is in peak physical condition.

What’s your BMI? How fast do you run a mile?

6
BasedEngineer 6 points ago +6 / -0

Just because someone has a low BMI doesn't mean they are healthy as is the case with many vegans. Someone can have a BMI of 21 and be skinny fat. I haven't ran a mile in a while I never cared for distance running, but when I did I'd usually be in the 6 min range.

Whatever point you're trying to male is irrelevant because they have been consuming soy for centuries and have the densest population centers on earth.

6
Kerra_Holt 6 points ago +7 / -1

They have consumed, traditionally, fermented soy.

NOT TOFU.

NOT EDAMAME.

NOT SOY INUNDATED FOODS.

Look below for their TRADITIONAL DIET. They haven't been EATING SOY FOR CENTURIES. Fucking bullshit.

Tofu is endemic to cuisine across east Asia. Edamame is a popular snack in the same. They just don’t chug it.

2
Kerra_Holt 2 points ago +2 / -0

Much of the current diet in Japan is trash. It's filled with soy product just like a lot of current Western foods.

Their traditional diet was far superior and the reason they have a reputation for "longevity" is because of the 60+ age groups in Japan who still adhere largely to their traditional diet.

What. Is. The. Population. Growth. In. Japan?

Bax101 7 points ago +10 / -3

Sticking your point to it being SOY is retarded. Its more like the culture of today's problems in Japan is because the men are obsessed with video games and anime. They want to marry a computer over the women there.

6
Huntercole 6 points ago +6 / -0

Very true. Japanese people are extremely healthy and live longer then almost any other people on earth.

7
Kerra_Holt 7 points ago +8 / -1

All of these responses point to what?

Japanese men being loners.

Negative population growth.

Couldn't possibly be connected to a large part of their diet being soy...

By the way, that longer lifespan is BS. There is a huge suicide and work death problem in Japan. Which further contributes to their negative population growth.

5
Scipio_Americanus 5 points ago +5 / -0

Exactly. These people are obviously clueless regarding the "herbivore men" concept.

Huntercole -1 points ago +2 / -3

Nothing you mentioned has anything to do with physical health. Japanese by tradition commit suicide even 100s of years ago from the samurai it was tradition to murder yourself because you failed yourself or family. They are also consumed by work they put work ahead of family life this is why they’re population is dwindling.

Overwork suicide is a slight mistranslation. They kill themselves b/c they work so much and are past a place where they will advance enough to have the financial resources to afford a comfortable retirement and so suicide is the alternative to reconciling that they slaved for a lifetime and have little to show for it. There’s a lot of meaning in the three little characters: 過労死. It’s hard for Americans to relate to, but it will be increasingly clear and felt firsthand here. Already, suicide in white men over 40 is skyrocketing here.

1
Kerra_Holt 1 point ago +1 / -0

The most common medical causes of karoshi deaths are heart attacks or strokes due to stress and a starvation diet. Mental stress from the workplace can also cause karoshi through workers taking their own lives.

There is another word for overwork suicide, it's called karoujisatsu.

So no, they aren't the same thing.

Plenty which is why they wanted to expand their reach to other islands. Why they have small homes so they stack in like cord wood. Why ask a stupid question. Twice! You can look up yourself?

Scipio_Americanus 4 points ago +4 / -0

Holy crap. Japan has the lowest population growth in the entire world. Their birth rate is something like 1.2 which is way below the replenishment rate. You obviously aren't very knowledgeable of their current state.

I didn't know so naturally I looked it up and it's been in the negatives since 2011, slowing in the teens and accelerating again recently, up to -0.37% in 2022.

Yeah, don't get me wrong, soy should only be consumed in moderation.

But Japanese culture has been degrading for a while, now.

It's turning them into bitches. What would happen to you if you took estrogen? Think PMS.

Xeno-estrogens.

It's worse than just soy (phyto-estrogens). Many common pesticides and plasticizers are on their own, or break down into chemicals that bind with estrogen receptors in the body. Depending on what they are, they can act as estrogen, or block estrogen from doing what it's supposed to do.

Xeno-estrogens are what's making all the trans people. We are poisoning ourselves and our kids. It may be the greatest ecological disaster we've ever faced.

In Los Angeles County, where 44 percent of women over 16 have gotten their first shot - compared with 30 percent of men...

Interestingly this roughly two-to-one ratio fits the gender balance of cult members and of church congregations pretty much exactly.

Soy is a nitrogen fixing crop suitable for rotation and possibly hog feed. Not for human consumption.

fair enough.

And, mono-culture petrochemical driven agribusiness sucks - treats living soil like a mining operation.

I dont want to eat a hog whose meat derived from gmo monsanto sprayed soy.

Soy is ok to eat in moderation if its not grown in America and is organic non GMO. American soy is mostly GMO or has been tainted with GMO genetics and is rich in glyphosate. Otherwise soy isnt all that bad aside from estrogen like compounds its not going to grow a vagina and tits overnight. That said cannabis also has estrogen like compounds and will also give you bitch tits.
