    I eat soya products but have to watch some, tofu seriously upsets me - or rather upsets my digestive system.

    The evidence appears to be if you have adequate iodine intake (which you mentioned) in your diet that this cancels out any goiter causing effects of soya and that it can be beneficial in reducing thyroid cancer risk.

    There's various articles around if you fancy a read:
    http://www.vegfamily.com/health/vegan-soy-information.htm

    http://archive.ahrq.gov/clinic/epcsums/soysum.htm

    https://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2005nl/april/050400pusoy.htm

    There's another really good one which annoyingly I can't find at the moment.

    That aside it isn't overly difficult to avoid soya as a vegan. For instance, there are plant milks made from rice, almonds, oats and peas out there. There are also vegan soya free "cheeses". A lot of the meat alternatives don't involve soya either e.g. Linda McCartney sausages are made from wheat. Of course it isn't strictly necessary to buy any of these substitutes if you cook more from scratch and make use of beans/pluses/grains as a protein source.

    GM free - you have to go on manufacturer info if they tell you.

    See me previous post for a few other links on soya too. There is a lot of mis-information around on it.
