Soy Consumption in Youth Reduces Breast Cancer Risk

Asian-American women who frequently consumed soy during childhood, adolescence, and adulthood reduced their risk of developing breast cancer, according to recent findings.* The strongest anti-cancer effect was associated with soy consumption between the ages of 5 and 11.

Scientists studied 597 American women of Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino descent with breast cancer. Women whose soy intake during adolescence and adulthood was in the top third of all subjects had a 25% lower risk of developing breast cancer than those whose intake was in the lowest third. Women who consumed the most soy during childhood had a 58% lower risk.
