Soy is Questioned
A committee from the American Heart Association took a look at a decade’s worth of research regarding soy protein and heart disease. What they found is that soy protein doesn’t lower LDL as much as originally thought; but it is useful when it replaces foods that are packed with cholesterol and saturated fat. This work was published in the journal Circulation. FMI see "Soy Protein, Isoflavones, and Cardiovascular Health. An American Heart Association Science Advisory for Professionals From the Nutrition Committee" by
Frank M. Sacks MD, Alice Lichtenstein DSc, Linda Van Horn PhD, RD, William Harris PhD, Penny Kris-Etherton PhD, Mary Winston EdD, for the American Heart Association Nutrition Committee is available at the location
