PCRM: New Study Shows Soy Products Protect Women from Breast Cancer Recurrence

A new report in the July edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that women previously diagnosed with breast cancer have less risk of cancer recurrence if they consume soy products. The report combined the results of prior studies, including a total of 9,514 women. Those who consumed the most soy products were 25 percent less likely to have their cancer return, compared with those who tended to avoid soy products.

Some women avoid soy products after a cancer diagnosis. The study and several previous studies show that soy products are actually protective.
