Soy Better than Hotdogs

The American Heart Association Heart finds few health benefits from soy. Now I know that some of you are big soy fans (and you know who you are ), but maybe we can cut down on the soy shakes. Their research indicates that eating a very large amount of soy protein, more than half the daily protein intake, may lower LDL cholesterol by a few percentage points when it replaces dairy protein or a mixture of animal proteins (my italics). Talk about damning with faint praise..... "Dieticians have agreed that soy may be beneficial when eaten instead of less nutritious foods such as hamburgers or hot dogs".
