A friend just gave me a jub of soy protein (it's isolate), what is the difference between that and whey protein?
I just read this article http://www.teenbodybuilding.com/todd12.htm on it and it claims there is really no major difference. I am not super into lifting like a lot of people here, I do it recreationally because it feels good, makes me better at sports, and makes me look good, so I don't think the marginal differences should matter to me personnally, but I'm still curious.

While the problems with soy and male hormones have been exaggerated and that consumption of soy proteins in moderate amounts may be OK, diets high in soy have been shown to have negative effects especially with higher amounts of isoflavones.
Something additional to consider ...
