They discovered it 3,000 years ago, but they used the plant as fertilizer to enrich the soil for growing millet and wheat. It took another 1,000 years before the potential of the soybean was truly discovered. (Not to mention that it gave them more bang for their buck, land-wise, than meat, dairy or eggs).
Furthermore, the Chinese traditionally breast fed or used wet nurses. They did not give soy milk (soy formula) as "we" do today.
If it is not fair for Weston A. Price to promote an agenda with misleading info, then it is not fair to promote the soya agenda with misleading info.
