Ahoy, Soy!

Potential good news has arrived for soy-loving breast cancer survivors. While doctors have often warned breast cancer patients to avoid soy products, they’re now saying that the legume may have some major benefits for cancer sufferers. A new study showed that women with breast cancer who ate more soy were less likely to die or have a recurrence of the disease than those who ate little to no soy. While the study looks promising, the verdict is still out for the time being as more studies are needed to confirm the findings. However, it looks like soy milk here and a tofu curry there isn’t going to do any damage to cancer sufferers. Moderation, as always, seems to be the key word for now. And of course, anyone who is perfectly healthy should incorporate soy for a great source of protein and fiber to help stay that way!

Soy joy.
