Health & Nutrition - Winter, 2017 - Vol 25, No 1 Facts vs Myths
In This Issue:
- Health concerns about the consumption of soyfoods are based almost exclusively on in vitro and animal studies. In contrast, the overwhelming amount of evidence from clinical and epidemiologic studies refutes these concerns and directly supports the safety and potential benefits of soy consumption. The human data show that with few exceptions, such as those who are allergic to soy protein, soyfoods can make an important contribution to an overall healthful diet.
