Soy food may boost men

Tuesday June 24th, 2014

Men with a common form of diabetes can be put on a high soy diet without it affecting their masculinity, British researchers have found.

Soya beans contain natural oestrogens and it has been thought high soy diets might affect male hormone levels.

But the latest findings, at Hull York Medical School, show that a diet rich in soy does not affect male testosterone levels.

Researchers studied some 210 men with type 2 diabetes - which is linked to diet and obesity.

Both men ate soy bars for three months - but in one set of bars, the phyto-oestrogen compounds were moved. All the men experienced increases in testosterone levels - rather than reductions.

The findings were reported at the conference of the International society of Endocrinology in Chicago, USA.

Researcher Dr Thozhukat Sathyapalan said: "Because soy contains phyto-oestrogens that are similar to the female hormone oestrogen, it was not known whether consumption of soy could reduce testosterone levels in men with Type 2 diabetes, who are at increased risk of low testosterone."

* A study reported today suggests that men with heart disease often find it interferes with their love lives.

Some 1,500 men took part in a British Heart Foundation survey and nearly a third reported having less sex as a result of their condition. Some 19% reported ceasing sexual activities through fear of having a heart attack.

The foundation says men with heart disease need better support and information.
