Scientists are interested in the connection between soy and breast cancer, and are actively studying, the possibility that soy might affect the likelihood of getting it or recovering from it. At this point, there is certainly no concrete evidence to say that eating tofu everyday will prevent breast cancer. If you are currently being treated for breast cancer or are post-menopausal, some researchers have hypothesized that soy could actually have the opposite effect, possibly impeding treatment or increasing the likelihood of getting breast cancer. But since nothing at all has been proven so far, it is best to seek the advice of your doctor if you are concerned.
