Soy and Fibroids

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

In a study of "Lignan and isoflavone excretion in relation to uterine fibroids: a case-control study of young to middle-aged women in the United States" by Charlotte Atkinson, Johanna W Lampe, Delia Scholes, Chu Chen, Kristiina Wähälä and Stephen M Schwart, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 84, No. 3, 587-593, September 2006, researchers suggest a modest inverse association between lignan excretion and uterine fibroid risk. Whether this relation represents an effect of lignans per se or of other constituents of lignan-containing foods on the development of uterine fibroids remains to be determined. No association was found between isoflavone excretion and uterine fibroids; however, the intake of soy foods, the primary source of isoflavones, was low in this population.
