Guys and Gals,
No for the real bad news. Casein increases cholesterol levels and increases atherosclerosis. This is one of the reasons why we should stop sucking cow's udders because casein is rich in dairy foods (particually cottage cheese). Although this is a low fat dairy food, it still causes heart disease (our biggest killer). Soy protein was found to improve cardiovascular health.

· van Raaij, J. M. A., et al. Influence of diets containing casein, soy protein isolate and soy concentrate on serum cholesterol and lipoproteins in middle-aged volunteers. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 35:925-934, 1982.
Also, casein reduces your life span by (ave.) 6 years (about 8%).

I think I'll stick with soy myself!!
