Do you believe that soy can prevent breast cancer?. According to the study of "Dietary genistein negates the inhibitory effect of tamoxifen on growth of estrogen-dependent human breast cancer (MCF-7) cells implanted in athymic mice". by Ju YH, Doerge DR, Allred KF, Allred CD, Helferich WG. Cancer Res. 2002 May 1;62(9):2474-7., researchers found that Dietary genistein negated/overwhelmed the inhibitory effect of TAM on MCF-7 tumor growth, lowered E2 level in plasma, and increased expression of E-responsive genes (e.g., pS2, PR, and cyclin D1). Therefore, caution is warranted for postmenopausal women consuming dietary genistein while on TAM therapy for E-responsive breast cancer.
Now you have it. Prevention is better than treatment, so make and drink your soy drink. It does not taste too bad,
