Abstract

There is an increasing public interest in foods and dietary supplements containing phytoestrogens for the maintenance of health. A workshop was convened to assess evidence for the potential benefits of phytoestrogen-containing foods or supplements on diseases or conditions affecting older populations. Preclinical, clinical, and epidemiologic data on the cardiovascular system, various cancers, bone diseases, and menopausal symptoms were the focus of the discussions. Research on the basis of consumer food choices as well as a presentation from the FDA regarding approval of the use of soy foods to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease were also presented. Based on the information presented, isoflavone-containing soy foods may have favorable effects on the cardiovascular system, but major knowledge gaps still exist regarding effects of phytoestrogen supplements on bone diseases, various cancers, menopausal symptoms, and cognitive function.
