Research has been suggesting for years that red meat is a dangerous source of protein, and comes at a cost to heart and vascular health. For decades, they have been trying to dispel the idea that foods derived from animal sources are a necessary or even warranted part the nutritional obligations of a healthy diet. Researchers have found benefits arise from the consumption of soy protein in addition to providing a healthier choice for nutrition. Compounds in the protein have been associated with a significant decrease in fatty liver build-up, in otherwise identical diets.

All proteins are not created equal

The study examined the triglyceride profiles and amount of fatty liver deposits in obese and healthy rats. The control groups were fed on diets of either milk or soy based proteins. The diet had no significant impact on the liver health of rats that were not initially obese, and the health of their livers was virtually identical. In the obese rats, however, the difference in diet also caused 20 percent fatty buildup in the liver.

Protein is available from many other sources, and one of the most popular raw food choices is from nuts, seeds, and legumes, which have, for a plant source, a particularly high concentration of the necessary oils. Because of this property, legumes are frequently used in vegetarian diets as a staple food. The consumption of protein derived from soy products can not only provide a sufficient supply of protein, recent research shows that soy can help relieve and correct the damage that was caused by the high fat diets that have become the standard.

Fat interferes with mobility on several levels

When an individual consumes fat, it doesn’t simply create deposits on the outside of the body. It also bonds to the organs it has to be processed by. The liver, in particular, is vulnerable to fatty build-up in the course of its work metabolizing the fat. A high fat diet can, and frequently does, lead to fatty liver disease. A current indicator of health trends, almost one third of people in the United States have fatty liver disease.

Signs point to soy not only stopping the damage, but repairing it

Researchers expressed their excitement. Solving the problems of allocating fats and sugars in an already overstocked body is a difficult one, and slow resolution leads to more problems. The dietary input causes a flow congestion in the organ systems. Sugar has no where to go and remains in the blood, creating a toxic environment for the organs. Fat energy is supplied in excess of need, causing the liver to clog with the overflow when it can’t keep up. These two conditions lead to almost all of the disease conditions associated with obesity and diabetes.

Amazingly, on closer inspection, the scientists found that the obese rats that were fed the soy protein isolate actually experienced restored functioning of the Wnt beta-catenin signaling pathway, which is plays a major role in defending against transcription errors when reproducing cells. Transcription errors on a macro level may manifest as cells with disorganized functioning, weakened defenses, and an increased susceptibility to developing cancers.
