The study is labeled "Dietary Phytoestrogens Activate AMP-Activated Protein Kinase With Improvement in Lipid and Glucose Metabolism".

I said it because soy is not the only dietary source of phytoestrogen so it is not the only thing to be wary of, but again it is likely the most potent source. I wasn't really referring to the estrogenic effects of phytoestrogens, but more on the activation of AMPK.
