The consensus of the medical community and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is that diet plays an important part in reducing our risk of developing clogged arteries that cause heart disease. Dr. Dean Ornish, author of the best-selling book, Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease, suggests that we eat less meat and satisfy our daily protein requirements by eating more vegetable protein, such as tofu and tempeh. After reviewing research from 27 studies, which concluded that soy protein lowers total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad" cholesterol), in October 1999, the FDA approved a health claim that can be used on soy food labels. This claim is: “Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of (name of food) provides __ grams of soy protein."
