Study: Soy fights breast cancer

null Cancer researchers found women who ate soy regularly as a child have a lower risk of breast cancer as adults.

Experts studied 16-hundred women of Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Filipino heritage who ate a high amount of soy during their childhood. They found that eating soy as a child appeared to reduce the risk of breast cancer by 58 percent.

But, scientists say, while eating soy early in life seems to be beneficial, other genetic factors may be at work, as well.
