Phytoestrogens and cardiovascular health

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Phytoestrogens may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and coronary artery disease, data from epidemiologic studies, human and animal trials and in vitro analyses show. A review by Lynette Lissin, MD, Stanford University Medical Center, et al., in the American Journal of Cardiology, recommends "women at high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, particularly those without a personal or family history of breast or uterine cancer, increase their consumption of foods rich in phytoestrogens such as soy protein." Lissin et al. believe plant-based estrogens may reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, and call for more research on specific phytoestrogens
