Intake of Soy, Soy Isoflavones and Soy Protein and Risk of Cancer Incidence and Mortality

Loading our plates with soy foods may confer us with significant protection against cancer.

This study examined if eating a high soy diet is tied to reduced cancer development and mortality risk. Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data drawn out from 81 published studies. 

Researchers noticed a 10% decline in cancer risk among participants who ate generous amounts of soy foods on a regular basis. In addition, every 25 gram of soy foods consumed per day was found to slash an individual's odds of developing cancer by 4%. "These findings support recommendations to include soy as part of a healthy dietary pattern for the prevention of cancer," the study concluded.
