Soy for those on Hormone Shots?

This is a post responding to something gjeck posted in another thread RE soy.

First, it is known that soy encourages the production of estrogen, which is nice for ladies, and not bad for men under normal conditions. But I am not normal right now. I am on Eligard that blocks all testosrone production in my body. Do I as a man want to encourage any estrogen production by eating soy while I am on eligrad, or lupron, etc?

As those of us who are enduring the shot know, breasts are one of the by-products of the shot, and will estrogen enhence those new breasts even more?

So, soy? Yes or no?
