Nutrition and Bone Growth Anatomy Lab Sec3 For years soy has been looked at as a breast cancer and heart disease preventer bone protecter a lessoner of menopause symptoms and many others Recent studies now show that weve been loading up on soy with no real clear evidence of findings that soy does all these things Neither a group of breast-cancer suvivors nor post-menopausal women who took a soy supplement experienced any relief To make matters worse soys role in helping to prevent breast cancer is also being rethought Soy has been found to block human estrogen thereby inhibiting the growth of breast cancer cells However plant hormones called isoflavones may also act like the estrogen hormone and actually promote growth in existing tumors At Texas University it was found that pre-menopausal women who took in 158mg of isoflavones had lower levels of estrogen that may increase breast-cancer risk and at the same time higher levels of a form of estrogen were found that could lower risks Many women simply want to know how much is the safest amount to take in to their bodies Doctors are now telling women that 20-120mg is the safest amount of isoflavones to take in but it varies from female to female However they dont know the long term effect that taking 200mg or more may be Even if doctors could come up with an exact amount to take such a supplement isnt tightly regulated There is also no guarantee of how much you are getting because you dont know how much is in our everyday food Like the old clique its better to be safe than sorry doctors are now telling us that its ok to eat soy supplements
