Soy-Derived Phytoestrogens on Serum Lipids and Lipoproteins
This study finds no benefits of soy phytoestrogens on serum lipids. Before we run out and drop soy from a healthy lifestyle, there are a few things to consider here. First, soy foods, not supplements, have consistently been shown to be a part of a healthy lifestyle. I am a firm believer in the wisdom of Mother Nature, and believe that she put multiple factors in every food that work synergistically to achieve health benefits. Also, by adding soy into one’s diet, it will invariably be replacing more harmful animal products.
