Soy health benefits for your prostate

Soy protein has been found to have a positive correlation with preventing prostate cancer, the second most common cause of death due to cancer in men. Prostate cancer is diagnosed in over 230,000 men each year in the US, and contributes to 30,000 deaths. Other benefits that a diet high in soy can provide include lowering cholesterol in the blood, and preventing insulin insensitivity or diabetes.
