The July, 2011 issue of the Journal of Membrane Biology

and death of breast cancer
cells was examined after exposing
those lethal cells to phytoestogens.
The scientists found:

Soy phytoestrogens more readily attaches to estrogen
receptors than does estrogen. That can be a blessing.

As blood passes through one's lungs, it picks up oxygen

with oxygen for a
place on the hemoglobin molecule. Carbon
monoxide, a colorless and
odorless gas, displaces oxygen
from the blood so that hemoglobin

So, what carbon
monoxide does is mimic the action of oxygen
by attaching to the

Soy phytochemicals work much the same way in the human
body. Soybeans do not contain estrogen, although many
physicians confuse the name. Forgive
these ignorant souls for their lack
education. Soy actually contains phytoestrogens. "Phyto"
means "plant." Plant estrogens cannot create the same
physiological effects as human estrogen,
but they can fool the body into
believing that cells are
dosed with estrogen-like steroid hormones.
Real estrogen is a feminizing steroid hormone which

Therefore, soy inhibits the
