Default Soy and it's effect on testosterone in men

If this has been discussed before on this forum please let me know.

The small amount of research I've done on eating soy and whether or not it effects men's testosterone seems scattered. On the one hand, I've read articles like this:

...that show no effect on plasma testosterone in young men taking a soy protein supplement (not the only article I've read, just the only one I care to cite at the moment).

Yet, I've read on countless other sites that talk about a real effect that men should be aware of. They claim things like "if you eat soy everyday you can lower your testosterone levels significantly".

Anyone have any science that points more strongly to one side or the other?

I ask because I'm a vegetarian who avoids soy foods (tempeh, etc.). I don't want to avoid soy if it's not neccessary because it's a good source of protein.
Thanks for any responses!
