Dietary isoflavone intake is associated with a reduced risk of myelodysplastic syndromes

Regular intake of foods rich in isoflavones may help to keep myelodysplastic syndromes at bay

Myelodysplastic syndromes are a rare type of cancer that disrupts the production of blood cells in the bone marrow, resulting in a significant reduction in the number of healthy blood cells. This research work investigated the link between consistent dietary exposure to isoflavones and the probability of suffering from myelodysplastic syndromes. Researchers gathered information about the dietary habits of 208 patients with myelodysplastic syndromes and 208 healthy individuals. 

The research team identified a protective association between the consumption of isoflavone-containing foods and the occurrence of myelodysplastic syndromes. This study demonstrates that compliance with a high isoflavone diet may be beneficial for the prevention of myelodysplastic syndromes.
