The Effects of Non-GMO Soy in Breast Cancer

Clinical Cancer Research recently published a study on the conflicting reports of soy (genistein) on breast cancer. Although soy has a similar structure to estrogen, which drives most breast cancer growth, women in Asian countries (where much more soy is consumed) have a 5 times lower rate of breast cancer than Western women. The study concluded that while soy should not be started at the onset of breast cancer, if it is taken prior to a cancer diagnosis, it does not have to be stopped--in fact, it can have a protective effect against cancer.

As we have previously stated, our Progest Liposome Cream and Balanced Female have non-GMO soy with active genistein; it is patented and USP pharmaceutical grade. This quality of soy is valuable both for natural HRT and for cancer prevention. All hormones are chemical messengers that are essential to nearly all functions of the body, directing the body to do one thing or another. Progesterone acts as an antagonist to estrogen — it turns estrogen down. It is not the absolute deficiency of estrogen or progesterone but rather the relative dominance of estrogen and relative deficiency of progesterone that is the main cause of hormone-related health problems. From age 35 to 50, there is a 75% reduction in production of progesterone in the body. Estrogen, during the same period, only declines about 35%. By menopause, the total amount of progesterone made is extremely low, while estrogen is still present in the body at about half its premenopausal level. Estrogen and progesterone need the presence of each other in order to correctly perform their individual functions.

Because the study referenced here compares the effects of soy when on Tamoxifen, it is important to note that natural cancer treatment options are available with your local naturopath. Professor Jack Cuzick, an epidemiologist at Queen Mary, University of London, says, "For every 1,000 women on tamoxifen for 10 years, we estimate there would be 20 fewer breast cancers. But there would be three more womb cancers and six more deep vein thromboses." Phytoestrogens, on the other hand, "stimulate oestrogen receptors in the cases of oestrogen deficiency or block oestrogen receptors in the case of oestrogen excess" because of their structural similarity to estrogen. Phytoestrogens can function similarly to Tamoxifen and more, but without the high risk profile. Some studies have also shown that Indole-3-carbinol, a natural compound found in cruciferous vegetables, also functions similarly to Tamoxifen.

As you can see, there are benefits to the natural approach: results can be achieved without side effects. Life Choice hormone balancing products are formulated for the maximum benefit, the natural way.
