Studies also have suggested that substituting soy for animal protein can reduce low-density lipoprotein
(LDL), or so-called "bad" cholesterol, lower triglycerides, another measure of blood fat, and raise the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or "good" cholesterol that carries fat out of the bloodstream.
