Is any amount of soy safe for people with breast cancer?


Question from rev002: Is any amount of soy safe to use if you have breast cancer?
Answers - Kathy D. Miller, M.D. There is information from some new studies suggesting that soy is safe to eat and that women who had a diet higher in soy had a lower risk of recurrence. It's important to remember that there may have been many other differences besides the amount of soy they ate, and this study did not look at soy supplements that you might find in a health food store.
