RDA's are the amount of a given micronutrient required to stave off malnutrition. THe difference between that figure and the figure for the amount which is optimal or safe even is vast!

That being said, Soy is full of phyto eostrogens amongst other things, which, in too great a quantity can have an eostrogenic effect on your body resulting in itchy nips, water retention etc.

Dont get me wrong, the soy is good for you, but too much of a good thing.....

See my sig for a post on vits and RDA's.
