Why would you recommend anyone feed their rats soy?

Soy compromises the immune system, causes cancer, causes premature sexual maturity, depresses the rats and causes them to be overweight and less active. Just to name a few issues that soy can cause in rats.
Also a seed mix is fine as long as you only feed them as much as they will eat in a 24 hour period. They will eat their faves at first, but will snack on the rest through the day. I have been soy free for 6 months and my rats were never healthier and cancer free.
You seem to know a lot about feeding rats and soy. I would not feed your rats soy. Go with what you know. Unless you want some sick overweight rats.
Soy is Genetically Modified in most cases, hence the harmful impact it can have on us & rats.
A seed diet should be supplemented with some fresh veg. & fruit, they will love a few nuts too! A lab block is a great way to ensure they are getting the necessary nutrients they need.
Unsaltred soy nuts or beans are ok on ocassion.
A seed mix is very fatty and not recommended by ANY rat fancier. A high quality rat block is a much better option. It will 100% ensure proper nutrition.
I too have a hub on the potential dangers of Soy, so there's no need to tell me to read something I am aware of.
Thanks for the comment. Next time post it on the hub that you initially found that raised your concern or question.
I had my rats for 3+ years with soy nuts as a part of the homemade diet that they received a few times a week, with rat block the rest of the week, and fresh veggies once a week. They died of age, not cancer or any other illness.

I used to have several pet rats and was wondering if other people here enjoy keeping rats as pets?
