Good quality soy foods again linked to health and longevity

This latest research shows how a lifetime of eating good traditional soy foods can be very effective at keeping you healthy and disease-free.

“This study underscores how important it is for women to get into the best cardiovascular shape they can before menopause. The healthy habits they start then will carry them through the years to come”
Margery Gass, MD, Executive Director of the North American Menopause Society, August 2014.

The health researchers found that starting young on a healthy plant-based wholefood diet – rich in good quality traditional soy foods such as miso, tempeh, tofu, tamari and soymilk, significantly reduces heart disease risk across your lifetime.

Study by researchers from the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC, as published in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society, on July 30, 2014.
