Study: Soy-Eating Men May Have Lower Lung Cancer Risk

by: oneupweb

A new Japanese study found that men who don't smoke and eat a large amount of soy may have a lower risk of developing lung cancer.

The study followed 36,000 cancer free men, aged 45 to 74, for 11 years.

Of the 36,000 men in the study, 13,000 never smoked before. Of the 13,000 who had never smoked, the group who ate the lowest level of soy had 22 cases of lung cancer, whereas the group who ate the highest level of soy had 13 cases of lung cancer.

Experts note that more research needs to be conducted as men who eat high levels of soy  may also partake in other activities that help lower their risk of developing cancer.
