Major New Study Finds Soyfoods Safe and Beneficial for Women With Breast Cancer
Date:12/10/2009

ST. LOUIS, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A major new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) finds that women with breast cancer would be well-served by including soyfoods in their daily diet. Soyfood consumption was significantly linked to a decreased risk of death and cancer recurrence among the breast cancer patients in this study. Benefits increased up to about 11 grams of soy protein (about two servings) per day; beyond that amount, there was no additional benefit.

The Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study - led by Xiao Shu, MD, PhD, of Vanderbilt University in Tennessee and the Shanghai Institute of Preventative Medicine in China - evaluated 5,042 breast cancer patients. The research team recruited women aged 20 to 75 to participate in the study approximately six months after their cancer diagnosis and tracked their health over four years.

The findings show that the women in the study who consumed higher amounts of soy protein had a 7.4 percent mortality rate and an 8.0 percent cancer recurrence rate. In contrast, the women who consumed the least amount of soy had a 10.3 percent mortality rate and 11.2 percent recurrence rate. Thus, soyfood intake was associated with about a 30 percent decrease in risk.

The study documented these lower mortality and cancer recurrence rates for women in the highest soyfood intake group regardless of menopausal status, whether they had estrogen receptor-positive or -negative breast cancer (the two types of breast cancer) and whether or not they were prescribed the breast cancer drug tamoxifen. In fact, the findings suggest that high soyfood intake and tamoxifen use may have comparably beneficial effects on breast cancer outcomes.

"Women with breast cancer can use the information from this unique study to feel comfortable incorporating soyfoods into their diet," said Mark Messina, PhD, a scientific advisor to the United Soybean Board. "Thi
