Soy May Help Prevent Prostate Cancer

WASHINGTON, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Got soy? Parade Magazine, the weekly newspaper supplement, is the latest publication to report favorably on the role of soyfoods in helping prevent prostate cancer.

Health columnist Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld, writing on "Medical News That
Matters," says "several recent and current studies have focused on preventing prostate cancer," with soy intake featured in the research.

Japanese men, Dr. Rosenfeld reported, have a lower incidence of prostate cancer (than men in the United States) "and also eat much more soy than Americans do."

Asian diets have long been studied for their role in preventing various
forms of cancer. Soyfoods eaten by Asian women, for example, have been
regarded as helping keep down the rates of breast cancer, which are much lower
in Asian countries than for women in the United States. New studies are also
looking at the comparable rate of prostate cancer between Asian men and
American males.

"Researchers are studying if eating more soy-derived foods will have an
impact on health," Dr. Rosenfeld writes.

The health columnist also noted prospects for Vitamin E, the natural
version of which is made from soybeans, in a major study on prostate cancer
now being conducted by a branch of the National Institutes of Health among men
in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. The trial is intended to find "possible
protective effects," Dr. Rosenfeld said, of both Vitamin E and the mineral
selenium against prostate cancer, which is the second leading cause of death
in men after lung cancer.

Almost 200,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed in the United
States annually, and more than 31,000 men die of the disease each year.
