Study raises questions about the effect of its estrogen-like properties



Tue Sep 23, 2014 04:18 PM

I am a post-menopausal, triple postitive breast cancer survivor, diagnosed in 2011. I had a lumpectomy with breast conservation in August, 2011. Started chemo in September, 2011; Finished with all chemo (including Herceptin) in August, 2012. I will have to take an anti-hormonal, probably, for the rest of my life. My question has always been is the use of soy in EVERYTHING from nail polish to chocolate to mayonaise and salad dressings to milkshakes to vitamins...EVERYTHING...causing hormone positive breast cancers? I believe it has some (if not a huge) bearing on this horrible, life stealing disease. Women are being diagnosed younger and younger...

I think this is why we are taught from a young age - everything in moderation. And too much of a good thing is a bad thing...... isnt that so? and anything produced by man (processed) is actually bad for you. We should stick to what comes out of the earth only. My thoughts.
