The Soybean has been prized for centuries in Asia as a nutritious, high-protein food with a variety of uses. Today, it's popular in the United States not only in Asian food but also as a cholesterol-free meat and dairy substitute in traditional American foods. Medicinally, Soy appears to reduce blood cholesterol levels. In fact, the U.S. FDA has authorized allowing foods containing Soy to carry a "heart-healthy" label.
The isoflavones in Soy, primarily genistein and daidzein, have been well researched by scientists for their antioxidant and phytoestrogenic properties. Saponins in Soy enhance immune function and bind to cholesterol to limit its absorption in the intestine. The isoflavones may also reduce the risk of hormone-dependent cancers, such as breast and prostate cancer, as well as other cancers. Both animal and human studies have confirmed this. Eating lots of Soybeans may help protect against breast cancer, possibly because they contain so-called phytoestrogens that help block the activity of cancer-promoting estrogen.
