Heart disease affects everyone: men, women and children. Nearly 40% of all deaths in the US are caused by cardiovascular disease (CVD) according to American Heart Association statistics. It is also the number one cause of death among women over 34 years old. And while not all CVD is the result of high cholesterol, it is considered the leading risk factor for heart disease.

In October 1999, after conducting a rigorous study of available scientific research and more than 40 clinical studies, the FDA approved the following health claim for soy:
As early as the 1960's, studies were beginning to show the correlation of soy protein consumption and the reduction in cholesterol levels. Since then, many studies have been released linking soy to the lowering of cholesterol.

What we are also learning is that it doesn't require a lot of soy to achieve these health benefits. Just by reducing fats in your diet and getting 25 grams of soy protein a day will reduce low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) or "bad" cholesterol as much as 10%. That's just three-and-a-half 8 oz. glasses of soymilk daily. (FDA Consumer Soy Health by John Henkel, May-June 2000)
