​Breast cancer survivors may benefit from consuming soya foods

The WCRF continuous update programme (CUP) revised its 2014 Breast Cancer Survivors report this year. Looking at the totality of evidence, the WCRF once again concludes that, although limited, the evidence is consistent and continuous to support a benefit for soya consumption in breast cancer survivors. The CUP found that higher intakes of soya isoflavones or soya protein, 12 months after breast cancer diagnosis, were associated with a significant reduction in all cause mortality risk.
