Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] was measured in four groups of ambulatory adults ages 17 to 94 at our lifestyle enhancement center for chronic degenerative diseases because of our preliminary evidence that soy milks made of soy protein isolate included in the basic total vegetarian diet of unrefined foods was associated with an elevated LP(a) as measured by enzyme immunoassay on fasting serum samples.
The authors concluded that powdered soy milk significantly increases the LP(a) and should be excluded from the diet.

DR. MERCOLA’S COMMENT:
Yet further evidence of the potential danger of eating soy and being a vegetarian that relies on large amounts of soy products. This research comes out of the Seventh Day Adventist hospital and therefore would be biased toward the opposite conclusion, since large percentages of Seventh Day Adventists are vegetarian.
