A lesson in the benefits of soy nutrition

AgweekTV Soy Insight is brought to you by the North Dakota Soybean Council.

A group of Fargo-area dieticians and nutrition experts got a lesson in the benefits of soy nutrition.

Mark Messina, the director of the Soy Nutrition Institute, stressed that soy is a source of high-quality protein, has healthy fatty acids and is easy to incorporate into the diet. He says there's a lot of misinformation about soy, including that it can cause or worsen breast cancer. But in fact, Messina says research shows the opposite is true.
