Very different from today.
My parents are Chinese and Buddhists and soy is not a very big part of their day to day life. Soy milk maybe once a day and tofu 1-3 times a week.

From what I can recall of my extended families eating habits tofu might be one dish out of 3-5 others being served in a night. Soy milk is kind of big but I don't know if that is a provincial thing or not.

Tom, I was just making a joke...hence the face afterwards.

I'm probably too serious on this board, hence why my jokes would not often be caught. Sorry 'boot that!

Gotcha. I missed the smiley. I didn't think endocrine disruption had reached the point where women were now producing sperm. That would spell the end for us guys . . . which no doubt some wives would think of as a positive development.
