Don’t Fear Soy: Research Shows It’s Beneficial For Breast Cancer

We have heard for years that Soy isn’t safe and may cause cancer. We have heard it’s harmful for women who have breast cancer. Research has shown for many years this is NOT true and the latest research confirms this.

This is a personal issue for me. My mom has been battling ovarian cancer for years and many have tried to scare her away from Soy. But I have shown her the research and she eats it on occasion. She hasn’t beat her cancer yet but she has outlived all others diagnosed when she was in her oncology ward.

The following is from an NPR podcast on the latest research:

A new study of more than 6,000 women in the U.S. and Canada who had been diagnosed with breast cancer finds no downside to drinking that soy latte or eating other soy-based foods.

We found a 21 percent reduction in all causes of mortality among women with highest dietary intake compared to those with lowest intake. Asian populations , on average, consume 40 to 50 milligrams a day. Their Breast cancer risk and all cause mortality is much lower than the US.

The research is clear. Eating Soy in a balanced amount is perfectly safe for everyone and may actually be beneficial for many. There are many other things you can eat and not rely on Soy so much but there is no reason to exclude it from a healthy vegan diet.

    1. It’s not promoting. It’s informing people about misinformation. There’s a difference. Eat it or don’t. Nobody cares. But when people don’t eat it based on false claims then i see a problem with that.
