Even low-dose contraceptives may slightly increase risk of breast cancer

Even low-dose contraceptives may slightly increase risk of breast cancer

These include soy milk, tofu and edamame and cruciferous veggies such as cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts, collard greens, bok choy and broccoli.

"In this population of breast cancer survivors, higher soy and cruciferous vegetable intake was associated with less treatment-related menopausal symptoms and fatigue."

While most of the side effects of breast cancer treatments diminish once breast cancer treatment ceases, there are some that can persist for months, or even years. Results reveal women with severe gum disease are up to three times more likely to have breast cancer.

Pro-life activist Africa Obianuju Ekeocha‏ tweeted that she hopes the Canadian government, which is conducting a "contraceptive dump" on Africa, is "ready to pay for cancer treatments for African women too". "Understanding the role of life style factors is important because diet can serve as a modifiable target for possibly reducing symptoms among breast cancer survivors".

Phytochemicals, or bioactive food components, such as isoflavones in soy foods and glucosinolates in cruciferous vegetables may be the source of the benefit, researchers say.

Women who consumed more soy foods also showed suggestive associations with lower reporting of other symptoms, including joint problems, hair thinning/loss and memory, but these associations did not reach statistical significance.

The side effects of breast cancer treatment can last far beyond your final round of chemo.

Therefore, the team concluded that more research is required to confirm these findings and warn that breast cancer patients should not start eating soy suddenly if they haven't tried it before.

They point out, for example, that soy foods contain isoflavones, a class of that can function like the female sex hormone and help to alleviate some menopausal symptoms.

Lead author Dr. Angela Relógio from the Charité-Medical University in Berlin, said: "Based on our results, it seems to us that the clock is likely to act as a tumour suppressor".

Speaking of the study's findings, Dr. Nigel Carter OBE, CEO of the Oral Health Foundation, said: "Interestingly, this research shows that there is evidence to support the theory that gum disease can have a much larger impact on the health of our whole body".

Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center is designated by the National Cancer Institute as a comprehensive cancer center - the only cancer center of its kind in the Washington, DC area.

But until the benefits of soy have been confirmed, the researchers recommend that people with breast cancer do not increase their intake; some has indicated that soy might promote breast cancer.
