Two new studies reveal some of the benefits of eating soy products--preventing breast cancer and stopping the spread of prostate cancer, two of the most dangerous cancers in our midst. Both sets of findings were presented at a conference of the American Association for Cancer Research in Philadelphia. They come after a study in China, where large amounts of soya products are eaten, found women with the highest consumption had a 32 per cent lower risk of breast cancer recurrence.
BTW--interesting piece of information re: edamame, which originated in China. It is the only vegetable to contain all nine amino acids, making it a complete source of protein. It is also high in fiber, folic acid, vitamin C and helps lower cholesterol. Not bad for a little bean, eh?
