What about for women without breast cancer genes, or for women who have already been diagnosed? That was the subject of my last video, Is Soy Healthy for Breast Cancer Survivors? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-soy-healthy-for-breast-cancer-survivors). The older video I referred to is BRCA Breast Cancer Genes and Soy (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/brca-breast-cancer-genes-and-soy/).
What is in meat that may increase risk? See, for example:
• Zeranol Use in Meat and Breast Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/zeranol-use-in-meat-and-breast-cancer)
• Cholesterol Feeds Breast Cancer Cells (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/cholesterol-feeds-breast-cancer-cells/)
• Animal Protein Compared to Cigarette Smoking (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/animal-protein-compared-cigarette-smoking/)
