No surprise here. A whole-foods, plant-based diet is the way to go. Highly refined foods are the enemy. Eating Oreos and potato chips is vegan but not healthy. Vegan nuggies are delicious but not healthy. Eat a wide variety of whole foods for health, and avoid processed crap and soft drinks.

Actually, it's better to get plant based proteins at all stages of life. And as you get older, your risk from cardiovascular diseases increases, which can be dramatically lowered by eating plant based. There is no known limit between increasing plant food and increased health benefits.

There is nothing wrong with eating soy, and studies show vegetarians and vegans on average have higher testosterone levels than omnivores, not less. There is no downside to consuming soy, and huge benefits.
