Really? The Claim: Eating Soy Increases the Risk of Breast Cancer - NYTimes.com
THE FACTS

Soy milk, tofu and other soy products contain phytoestrogens, chemicals that can mimic the behavior of the hormone estrogen. Because estrogen fuels many breast cancers, soy has long been a source of concern: Can it heighten the risk of breast cancer or raise the odds of recurrence?

In the lab, phytoestrogens can stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. But in human studies, scientists have not found that diets high in soy increase breast cancer risk. In fact, most have found the reverse.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Despite concerns about its phytoestrogen content, eating soy has not been shown to promote breast cancer.
