Soybean is consumed in many ways. It is used in the various dishes, mostly in Asian populations. The soybean has the only bean used in the Western diet. This is around from the 60 years. Now a day, most of the supermarkets are filled with soy products, soy-based meat replacements, and soy burgers. Soya has a quality with a lower risk of heart problems as compared to other diets. Soya used as the best source of unsaturated fatty acids, protein, B vitamins, iron, fiber, zinc, and calcium; it is progressively popular as a healthy replacement of meat. This is mainly in the West. But more peoples are connecting soya with health from the last ten years. But fear has come that soya can disturb our hormones.
The soy’s market is down to its high content of isoflavones. Isoflavones have more estrogenic properties. That means they act like estrogen. Oestrogen is known as the primary female sex organ, which is bound with the estrogen receptor in the women body. The main issue is the estrogen can lead to the growth of breast cancer. The scientists researched that and concluded the result. They said that soya effects in the body in the last few years. The answer about isoflavones that it is harmful or not is not cleared by the scientist. And frequently it seems that soya defends to cancer risk rather than making it problematic. Still why soya is good and doesn’t have any issue in that is not cleared.
Soya also has connected with falling breast cancer’s chances. The population research carried out among the 6,000 women having breast cancer found that almost 21% decrease death rate as compared to those women who consumed more soya. This research is carried out by an associate professor of Tufts University in Massachusetts; Fang Fang Zhang. Soya has more benefits for women with hormone-receptor-negative breast cancer. It has benefits in the violent type of breast cancer where tumors lack progesterone and estrogen receptors. So that’s why they don’t reply well to hormone treatments.
