Soy vs Breast Cancer

I’ve been bugged several times by different patients who told me that soy can cause cancer spread esp. among breast, ovarian and uterine cancers.

I told them that the evidence maybe conflicting but from my experience and how i interpret the studies, soy actually benefits cancer patients.

Now i am glad i can show them the real reason for conflicting studies. Soy haters seem to interpret studies from rodents. Problem is rodents and humans have a large difference in metabolizing genistein which is the phytoestrogen in question.

Rodents’ blood have 150 times higher amounts of genistein than humans because of the slower rate of metabolizing it.

SO verdict is out. SOY IS BENEFICIAL FOR BREAST CANCER patients
