ABSTRACT
Over the past decade, soy foods have become the favorite health food in the U.S. Newspapers, magazines, and best-selling health writers have proclaimed the "joy of soy" and promoted the belief that soy food is the key to disease prevention and maximum longevity. The possibility that an inexpensive plant food could prevent heart disease, fight cancer, fan away hot flashes, and build strong bodies in more than 12 ways is seductive. Great Britain Committee on Toxicology has identified several populations at special risk: infants on soy formula, who use soy as their principal meat and dairy replacements, and men and women who self-medicate with soy foods and/ or isoflavone supplements in an attempt to prevent or reverse menopausal symptoms, cancer, or heart disease. INSETS: how much soy is too much?;Just how much soy do Asians really eat per day?.
