I always thought the main concern of too much soy - especially in raw form (I thought) like edamame and tofu- was that it is known to create estrogen dominance. My mom, worried that I was drinking too much soymilk and eating too much tofu, has been telling me that for years. I think the jury may still be out on this, but while I love soy (LOVE tofu, edamame, soymilk, etc), I do limit my consumption of it.

I certainly think eating tofu a couple times per week would be fine though.
