soy benefits

Scientific PROOF that soy beneficial for the prevention of cancer appear to continue to grow. Nuts are rich in protein content is believed to be having an enormous potential against the growth of breast cancer, especially if consumed since puberty.

Researchers from Georgetown Medical Center research report published in British Journal of Cancer emphasizes that women should eat high ABG made from soy if you want to avoid the risk of breast cancer. In soybeans, according to investigators contained a kind of important chemical called genistein that is claimed to be effective against cancer.

Nevertheless, major challenges still faced by the researchers in the use of these substances in soy genistein. They have to make sure how soy can be used appropriately to provide protection of adolescent women from this vicious disease.

"The timing seems important in the use of this bioactive food, and if we can reveal why these substances can protect, then we can provide breast cancer prevention in a broader scope" said researcher Leena Hilaviki-Clarke, PhD, professor of oncology at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center Georgetown.

Although there are various theories that explain the relationship while soy to the prevention of cancer. "But there is currently no convincing explanation about why the cancer risk reduction effects are stronger during childhood and early puberty," he added.

So far, there are only three research that examines the benefits of soy in puberty and its influence on the development of advanced-stage breast cancer. Two of the research has focused on Asian women who eat soy in the daily menu.

This research indicates that soy offers a very strong protective effect - which is about 50 percent lower risk of breast cancer - when consumed during childhood and early adolescence.

According Hilakivi-Clarke, in fact the strongest evidence revealed through a variety of research in mice. From this animal research, data on exposure to genistein in pre puberty is very consistent in showing decreased risks of cancer. Exposure to genistein in fetal development or in adulthood did not show precisely the same impact protection.

Further testing in rats showed that the use of genistein in puberty can suppress levels of terminal end buds (terminal end buds) or structures that cause the growth of mammary epithelial tissue, where the cells lining the milk ducts, and in the epithelial cells of breast cancer is growing.
