Soy Diet May Protect Against Breast Cancer

For girls only: Have you been eating taho or any soy-rich diet since you were a kid? Yes? Then, here's some good news for you:

Included in the study were 1,600 women of Chinese, Japanese and Filipino descent who were living in the US West Coast and Hawaii, and with ages 20 to 55 years old.

The most significant finding is this --- "Soy intake during childhood, adolescence, and adult life was associated with decreased breast cancer risk, with the strongest, most consistent effect for childhood intake."

Occasionally, I think a merienda of tokwa at baboy may also be good.

You can read the study's abstract here.
