In this world there are more than 12,000 nuts. And among these nuts, soy is the most popular. But the content of phytoestrogens in soy, a substance in the body can mimic the hormone estrogens, will trigger the suspicion of breast cancer.
As is known, estrogens is the fuel breast cancer. In a study conducted on mice in laboratories known phytoestrogens may trigger breast cancer cell growth. But in human studies scientists have found that diets high in soy trigger breast cancer, just the opposite.
The report, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2009, scientists examined the 5042 people who follow the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study. It turned out that soy consumption actually reduce the risk of recurrence and death from breast cancer.
The problem is the study conducted in China and is not yet clear whether the same is true of women in other countries.
Years of research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition of more than 10,000 survivors (survivor) breast cancer in the United States, found similar results in China. Those who regularly eat soy have a relapse of cancer risk is lower.
Because that’s nothing to worry about the eating soy. Moreover, whole soybean contains 35-40 percent protein. Soy protein is the only of the type of bean which has a composition most complete essential amino acids.
