Soy milk, soy cheese, soy burgers, tofu–you’ve no doubt heard plenty about how good soy is for your body. It’s high in protein, fiber and healthy oils; and among other benefits, it reduces one’s risk of cardiovascular disease. But have you heard that soy can cause kidney stones?
“Stone” is actually a misleading word, since we might tend to think of a round, smooth pebble. Although some kidney stones are round and smooth, others are jagged, shaped like tiny starfish.
