Dietary isoflavone intake and all-cause mortality in breast cancer survivors: The Breast Cancer Family Registry.

Frequent consumption of soy foods may reduce total mortality risk in breast cancer survivors.

Soy foods are rich in isoflavones. This study was carried out to determine the association between dietary intake of isoflavones and total mortality risk in breast cancer survivors. Researchers followed 6,235 breast cancer patients enrolled in the Breast Cancer Family Registry and monitored their diets and mortality rates. They observed that patients who regularly consumed high soy diets had a 21% reduction in all-cause mortality risk compared to those who ate little or no soy foods. The findings of this study reveal that high dietary intake of soy foods may lower the odds of deaths from all causes in breast cancer patients.

Hi, I am new to your blog, and I must confess you are doing a really great job here. Soy foods are really wonder foods because their high proteins, and Vitamin A. I love Soy based foods a lot. However, the Phytate content scares me away eating them. Can you comment on this, and do you know any simple method by which the Phytate in Soy can easily be removed. Will appreciate this information. Thanks.

Here is an article titled Should we be Concerned about Phytic Acid? that is not particularly about soy but which you may find helpful:

And, here is an blog about Debunking the Anti-Soy Myths that you also might find interesting.

The following page is a Search for the term Soy on this web site that will provide many studies that have been done regarding soy. The bottom line is there is no need to worry about this.

Hope this is helpful.
