  1. Hello, I'm new to this forum and I felt that I had to make a remark about this since I'm myself concerned about the subject. I have no specific complaints about the methods in the study, but I would like to draw attention to the following: "Declarations Acknowledgements The authors gratefully acknowledge the support of The Solae Company, LLC." Solae is a soy ingredients supplier. The only reason why I looked it up was that I was puzzled by the part in the discussion where they raise suspicions about whey proteins: "This is the first study to report low-level isoflavone content in commercial whey proteins" I found this strange because it is concerned with "occurrence of isoflavones in the range of 1–30 ng/ml in bovine milk" which is indeed very very low. The unit ng/ml (mass/volume) corresponds to ng/g (mass/mass) which means 1/1,000,000,000, whereas isoflavones in soy products is typically measured in mg per 100g, that is 1/100,000. So the isoflavones milk that they are complaining about are at concentrations about ten thousand times weaker than those in soy products.(https://www.ars.usda.gov/SP2UserFiles/Place/80400525/Data/isoflav/Isoflav_R2.pdf) Some will claim that the ones found in milk are more potent than those in soy, but what I'm getting at is that to me, the discussion seems to have an agenda of defending soy. I found not trust this study with my health.
