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.
People also say gmos are safe.
there is a difference in what random people say, and what high quality peer reviewed research says.
We don’t post articles based on what people say. If you read the article you can see the research was based on a study of 6000 people. That is a huge scientific study.
GMO is poisonous
You don’t know who to believe nowadays!
believe high quality peer reviewed research.

Raquel Marie Lee. a lot of anti soy propaganda comes from dairy industry
It’s the Vitamin D interference that’s bad for me. I feel like it’s just another of those ingredients science cant decide if it’s good or bad
I think those of us who had a estrogen positive breast cancer should not eat it
Even according the the MD Anderson cancer center this is not true. Best wishes in your cancer journey <3
I’ve read it actually prevents breast cancer but I’m not a doctor or scientist.
Marie Oser has written a book about the myth that soy is bad for you. Find her on Facebook of read her book: https://www.amazon.com/Skinny-Soy-Marie-Oser/dp/1940184355
I’ve read both sides and my sense is that organicsI soy in moderation is healthy for most people. With all the extremism around soy, it’s hard to know what the truth is!
you are pretty dead on. Organic non GMO soy in normal amounts is fine. As are most things in non excessive amounts
Gabrielle Sengua, what we were talking about today! I still won’t eat it!
Nope. Still won’t.
Still all about GMO
SO WHICH IS IT DAMN IT
The research on soy has been clear for nearly a decade.
I think all of the nasty hype comes from meat industry spin (and meat industry think tanks).

Hard to know what is true from what is not. Just avoid it altogether to be on the safe side I guess.
Read this article from Dr. Fuhrman instead: https://www.drfuhrman.com/learn/library/articles/104/dont-fall-for-the-myths-about-soy
Soy is not to be consumed
based on what? Certainly not on any of the major research studies of the past decade
Based on Dr. Sebi and Dick Gregory research and experiences. Soy can cause a imbalance in hormones, because of this it has been linked to cancer and fibroids. I’m speaking from experience myself.
I have a soy based shake everyday. Never had any issues.

MD Anderson article about soy consumption! https://www.mdanderson.org/publications/focused-on-health/september-2014/soy-cancer.html

Linda Burgess ?
Thank you Jesus
I’m not clear as to why the need to promote soy. It is a free country and there are those who wish to choose other forms of protein rich plants.
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.
Thanks for sharing this information.
