Study Finds, Soy Foods and Cruciferous Vegetables May Reduce Side Effects of Breast Cancer Treatment
Current research on soy and breast cancer suggests that moderate levels of soy are safe for survivors, allaying early concerns from animal studies that certain compounds in soy may stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells.
A recently published study claims that soy foods (soy milk, miso and tofu) and cruciferous vegetables (cabbages, kale, collard greens, bok choy, Brussel sprouts, and broccoli) may reduce some common side effects of breast cancer treatment.
The study was published in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment. https://www.springer.com/journal/10549
