The health effects of soy in your diet

As a vegetarian and Asian male, soy and soy products have been a key part of my diet. I need to know if there are serious health consequences in consuming moderate amounts of soy in its many forms such as soy sauce, tofu, edamame, soy milk, and soy isolates in protein powders and bars. Soy is also low in fat and calories and high in protein but I know soy also contains phytoestrogen which sounds scary. I also want to look at the difference between fermented soy and unfermented soy as this difference appears to breakdown particular chemical substances found in soy. For this board, I'm looking at soy across various populations: male and female, across age groups, and ideally across different ethnic groups.
