So soy is actually a subject of intense research and not only here in the western world, and also in Asia as well. And what's very interesting, is that we know that there are molecules that are phytoestrogens like genostyne and dioxines, so we've actually identified the molecules, in the soy products that actually help fight cancer, and we see this in the laboratory, and also when you look at population studies, particularly in Asia, women who actually have cancers like breast cancer, who eat more soy actually have better survival, so I think that some of the controversies are becoming cleared up, as we are really just studying what's happening in the real world, and having a better understanding of the sides of soy.
