A study conducted in Perth, Australia (which was reported in the June, 2009 issue of Respiratory Research) showed that dietary factors can help men and women combat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Subjects who consumed more soy (about 60 grams daily) had a significantly decreased risk of COPD. Similar decreases in the risk of COPD were observed with higher intakes of tofu and bean sprouts. The more soy people consumed, the fewer breathing problems they had (particularly breathlessness).
