|The grand rabbi of Gur|
The Hasidic yeshiva of Gur, has banned students from eating any soy based product out of fear that it might cause an increase in gay sexual activity, according to a report in the Haredi World.
Officials at the yeshiva and the boys school ordered students to stay away from any food containing soy because even eating a soy based product just once a week can cause unwanted arousal.
Officials at the school believe that soy based products contain harmful hormones that damage the spirituality of students by accelerating sexual maturity.
Doctors however said that there is no evidence that soy based products accelerate puberty or accelerate hyper sexual activity in young adults.
