Please do not approve soy protein to receive a qualified health claim. An unbiased review of ALL of the scientific documentation of soy would show that there is too much evidence on the side of negative health effects of soy to allow its producers to use a health claim--there is enough to question its sale to the general public. I personally lost about twenty pounds (in a bad way) eating a soy-heavy diet and I have a female friend who rid herself of *41* uterine fibroids simply by removing all soy and soy products! This was verified by ultrasound. This country is already moving in the wrong direction by allowing influence from the sugar industry to shape our government's food recommendations. Giving this blanket endorsement of soy will utterly ruin any chance this country has of remaining a world superpower (due to our health costs).
