Washington (ChatterShmatter) – A new study has revealed that consuming soy may be the key to preventing breast cancer.
A study published this week in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention.focused on 1,600 Asian Americans, looking at how soy impacted their breast cancer risk.
What they found was amazing, as a diet full of soy as a child and adult greatly reduced the risk of cancer.
Having a diet full of soy as a child helped reduce the risk of breast cancer by 60%, and as an adult, it cut it by 25%.
This shows that no matter when you start consuming soy, it will help fight off breast cancer.
A big question though is for researchers to explain as to why soy protects the body from breast cancer, so that they can apply it further.
