DESCRIPTION: What role do soy phytoestrogens play in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer?
This is probably the same reason flax seeds are so protective. See Flax Seeds & Breast Cancer Survival: Epidemiological Evidence (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseeds-breast-cancer-survival-epidemiological-evidence/) and Flax Seeds & Breast Cancer Survival: Clinical Evidence (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseeds-breast-cancer-survival-clinical-evidence/).
What about women who carry breast cancer genes? I touched on that in BRCA Breast Cancer Genes and Soy (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/brca-breast-cancer-genes-and-soy/) and it’s the topic of my next video, Should Women at High Risk for Breast Cancer Avoid Soy? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/should-women-at-high-risk-for-breast-cancer-avoid-soy).
What about genetically modified soy? I made a video abut that too: GMO Soy and Breast Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/gmo-soy-and-breast-cancer/).
Who Shouldn’t Eat Soy? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/who-shouldnt-eat-soy) Glad you asked. Watch that video too! :)
Not all phytoestrogens may be protective, though. See The Most Potent Phytoestrogen is in Beer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-most-potent-phytoestrogen-is-in-beer/) and What are the Effects of the Hops Phytoestrogen in Beer? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/what-are-the-effects-of-the-hops-phytoestrogen-in-beer/).
