The Perils of Eating Soy — Index
Soy Online Service
SoyOnlineService.co.nz was one of my favourite reference websites when I first published Second-Opinions at the beginning of this century. Informative, well researched, fully referenced, and reliable, it was the largest repository of anti-soy research and clinical and personal experience in the world.
That is until 2011 when, in April of that year, the couple who owned and ran the website, Valerie and Richard James, were both killed at the same time. And, you know, I have not been unable to find any mention of a cause of their death anywhere on the Internet. It's as if they never existed.
There are rumours that BigAgribusiness may have had a part to play, but, as yet, I know of no evidence to support this.
Anyway, their death need not be the end of their work; and I believe strongly that their research should again be made available. To that end — in memory of Valerie and Richard — I have published the whole of the SoyOnlineService website here.
