In a study of "Low and moderate-fat plant sterol fortified soymilk in modulation of plasma lipids and cholesterol kinetics in subjects with normal to high cholesterol concentrations: report on two randomized crossover studies.", by Rideout TC, Chan YM, Harding SV, Jones PJ., reseachers concluded that compared to 1% dairy milk, consumption of low and moderate-fat PS-enriched soy beverages represents an effective dietary strategy to reduce circulating lipid concentrations in normal to hypercholesterolemic individuals by reducing intestinal cholesterol absorption. TRIAL REGISTRATION (CLINICALTRIALS.GOV): NCT00923403 (Study 1), NCT00924391 (Study 2).
Now you have it, instead of drinking 1% milk, you may want to try soy drink, if you are concerned about Low-Density-Lipoprotein (LDL) and heart diseases and stroke
