The effect of soy phytoestrogen supplementation on thyroid status and cardiovascular risk markers in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism: a randomized, double-blind, crossover study.
Numerous studies have found soy and soy phytoestrogens, called isoflavones, to be helpful - not harmful.
A study in the January-February 2002 issue of Neurotoxicology and Teratology showed that the soy phytoestrogen content of the diet exerts specific influences on learning, memory, and anxiety-related behaviors.
Soy phytoestrogens belong to the isoflavonoid class and comprise mainly genistein (about 60%) and daidzein (30%), with smaller quantities of glycitein (10%); glycitein is found in relatively high concentrations in the hypocotyls of the soybean.

In a second study, soy phytoestrogens didn't fare as well as fluoxetine.
