Soy's Top 5 Heath
What's more, over 166 additional scientific
and medical studies from around the world now document soy's extraordinary' role as a
primary all-natural disease preventive and healing agent -not just for cancer and heart
disease, but for a vast number of health and medical conditions. According to these
studies, the top five health benefits of soy appear to be:
1) Cancer preventive -Numerous studies link soy consumption
to dramatically lower rates of lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer,
leukemia, and breast cancer in women.
2) Heart disease preventive - Soy's powerful antioxidant
properties. as well as its phenomenal cholesterol-lowering properties have now been
documented in over 38 major studies, showing it to be one of the most powerful all-natural
heart protectors in existence.
3) Immune system booster - New studies show what soybean
peptides (chains of amino acids) help dramatically strengthen the Immune System, and aid
the body in fighting off disease of all sorts.
4) Osteoporosis - New studies have also demonstrated soy's
unique ability to help both men and women restrict calcium loss and retain bone mass as
they age, thereby preventing osteoporosis and helping reduce hip fractures - a major
problem among the elderly.
5) Menopause - Studies show that soy markedly reduced the
adverse symptoms of menopause in women, particularly hot flashes, which are virtually
eliminated. In Japan, where daily soy consumption is high, hot flashes among menopausal
women are so rare, the Japanese do not even have a word for it.
