Document Abstract:
Isoflavones, a class of plant phenols found in soy products, have been extensively investigated in recent years due to their oestrogen-like properties. Like HRT they have been linked with favourable health benefits in menopausal women. Their use as HRT replacements and their possible side effects in this age group and in children are reviewed here.
