The interest in the health promoting effects of soy and its constituents has increased tremendously over the past years. Soyfoods and products rich in soy protein are no longer seen as merely good sources of quality protein, but rather as functional foods that may be used in preventing and treating chronic disease as well. This book contains the proceedings of the second international conference "Soy & Health 2002" which was held in London, U.K. on May 30-31, 2002. The texts of the keynote lectures, presentations and poster abstracts offer a complete review of the clinical research relating to soy. Major themes discussed: heart disease, isoflavone metabolism, cancer, bone health, hormonal effects, renal disease, and cognitive function; the effect of minor constituents, such as protease inhibitors, saponins and sterols; safety issues, health claims, and dietary applications. All health professionals with an active interest in nutrition and the impact of soy on health should have a copy of this well referenced book on their shelves.
