Today’s Healthy Recipe: Soy Cutlet
Soya bean and its products can powerfully influence the reduction of the risk of cancer. Just one phytochemical component of soyabeans seems to be an ideal element of a new anticancer drug. Scientists believe that a single daily serving of soyfoods would suffice to provide the benefits of this anticancer phytochemical.
But their cancer-fighting qualities are merely the most high-profile benefits of consuming soybean products. Soy products, for instance, lower blood cholesterol levels, thereby decreasing the threat of another great killer disease, heart attack. They could thus provide natural alternatives to many cholesterol-lowering drugs. They can also help prevent diseases of the kidney besides treating them. Similarly, soy proteins may help in better calcium-utilization in order to ward off the agony of osteoporosis.
