Regarding soy consumed as a whole food, compared to soy
I would add that new research co-authored by the Harvard
University School of Public Health shows that adding soy to the diet
counteracts the Metabolic Syndrome*. (precursor to diabetes)

And soy nuts-whole food soynuts-had a greater effect than soy
protein. (ISP) Soy nuts outperformed isolated soy protein
dramatically. Soy is well-known as heart-healthy and did a great
job overall, and even more impressive, soy diets markedly
improved insulin resistance, a hallmark of the metabolic syndrome.

I mention this because soy nuts had the strongest impact, when
measured against soy protein. SOY NUTS ARE A WHOLE FOOD
and provided soy protein as well as polyunsaturated (“good”) fat,
fiber and a higher amount of isoflavones.

*This condition is characterized by a cluster of risk factors that
include obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and
trigliceride levels. Add insulin resistance or gluclose intolerance,
and the cluster becomes the Metabolic Syndrome, which is a
precursor to heart disease and type-2 diabetes.
