February 3, 2006, Newsletter Issue #3: Soy Products and Breast Cancer

Tip of the Week

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 morning, noon, and night will prevent breast cancer. If you're currently being treated for breast cancer or are post-menopausal, some researchers hypothesize 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, you're probably safe giving soy the same place in your diet it's always had--no more, no less.
