Study: Soy Helps Prevent Breast Cancer Recurrence

October 20, 2010

The December 2009 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association features a study of over 5000 women in Shanghai with a history of breast cancer. The women who ate more soy protein had fewer deaths or recurrences than those who ate less. This was true regardless of whether the breast cancer was estrogen positive or not and whether the women were taking tamoxifen or not. The study concluded: “Among women with breast cancer, soy food consumption was significantly associated with decreased risk of death and recurrence.”

Soymilk and soy yogurt are good sources of soy.
