Is Eating Soy Safe for Breast Cancer Patients and Survivors?

Is eating soy safe for breast cancer patients and survivors?

Is-eating-soy-safe-for-breast-cancer-patients_SPLASH

There has been widespread concern about whether it is safe for women with breast cancer to eat soy.

An excellent source of fiber, vitamin B6, and protein, soy is usually associated with a health-conscious diet, but research concerning its safety has been mixed.

Some studies have shown isoflavones, a class of phytoestrogens, or plant-derived compounds, found in soy could impact a woman’s estrogen levels and increase the risk of cancer recurrence among some breast cancer patients. Estrogen is known to promote the growth of breast cancer cells.

Wendy Y. Chen, MD, MPH, a breast cancer expert at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, has conducted research that shows that soy is safe to eat for breast cancer survivors.

Wendy Y. Chen, MD, MPH

“We looked at data among many breast cancer survivors both from the United States and Asia,” says Chen. “We found that women who ate a large amount of soy had a similar or decreased risk of breast cancer recurrence compared to women who didn’t eat soy.”

Dr. Chen adds if women with breast cancer want to make soy a regular part of their diet, it should be dietary or food-based soy.

She doesn’t recommend people use soy exclusively in their diet or that they use forms of processed soy or soy in pill form.

“It’s very easy to find soy products in neighborhood grocery stores now,” says Chen. “Besides the more common ones like soybeans, soy sauce and tofu, now you can easily buy food-based soy products like miso soup, soy milk and soy nuts. Also, many of the dark green, leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, and broccoli are rich in isoflavones.”

Besides eating a healthy diet, Chen says there are other things breast cancer survivors can do to reduce their risk of the disease returning.

“Exercising regularly, limiting alcohol consumption, quitting smoking and maintaining a healthy weight have been shown to be very helpful in improving survival,” she says.

SYS – Save Your Skin

SYS: Save Your Skin

As teenagers, many of us scoffed at the idea of wearing sunscreen and reached for zero-protection, greasy baby oil instead. We sizzled and fried in the pursuit of the perfect tan. Our skin paid the price and today the sun damage is reflected in brown age spots, more pronounced wrinkling, leathery skin, or worse — skin cancer.

Sun damage is caused by two types of ultraviolet radiation (UV). While UVB rays are the main cause of sunburn, UVA rays are the most damaging. These stronger rays penetrate the deeper layer of skin and break down collagen and elastin. The result: wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots.

UVA rays, present throughout the year, are also the chief cause of skin cancers. The rays can penetrate clouds and windows. Even on a cloudy day, 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays can pass through the clouds. Sand reflects 25 percent of the sun’s rays, while snow reflects 80 percent of the sun’s rays. That’s why wearing screening is essential — no matter what the weather.

How to Use Sunscreen

Despite your years in the sun, you can still reduce your skin cancer risk — and your children’s — by wearing sunscreen now.

No matter what your skin type, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends you wear a broad-spectrum (protects against UVA and UVB rays), water-resistant sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 all year round. UVA-screening ingredients include avobenzone and oxybenzone among others.

Sun protection can prevent premature skin aging and skin cancer. Here’s how to best protect your skin:
• Apply sunscreen to dry skin 15 to 30 minutes before going in the sun.
• Use one ounce (a shot glass full or 2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to coat all areas of the skin liberally. Pay particular attention to the face, ears, hands and arms.
• Apply lip balm with an SPF of 30 or more to lips.
• Reapply sunscreen at least every two hours or after swimming or perspiring heavily. Even water-resistant sunscreen can lose effectiveness after 40 minutes in the water.
• If you rely on moisturizers or cosmetics that contain sunscreen, be sure to reapply often for continued UV protection.
• Avoid too much sun exposure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
• Wear a broad-rimmed hat and sunglasses in the sun.
• Avoid tanning booths. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has now classified them as cancer-causing in humans.
• Examine your skin head-to-toe every month.
• See your doctor once a year for a professional skin exam.
Choose Sunscreen Wisely

Relivables Sunscreen SPF 30+ is an ideal choice to protect your whole family. It offers water-resistant, broad-spectrum protection — with avobenzone and oxybenzone — to guard against both UVA and UVB rays. Relivables Sunscreen is also PABA-free. The pump-spray container provides convenient application without the waste of an aerosol. Since it’s oil-free, it dries fast without feeling greasy.

To protect your face while you moisturize year round, Relivables r day balanced moisturizer contains SPF 15 protection along with Reliv’s exclusive RA7 nutrient complex that may actually reduce the visible effects of sun damage.
