Soy

Helps fight: Breast Cancer

A study published in The International Journal of Cancer Prevention has found a possible link between soy consumption and reduced breast cancer risk in both premenopausal and postmenopausal women.
Soy contains phytoestrogens, which have biologic activity, making them very interesting to study because they can interact with human estrogen.
On the other hand, Japanese women have one of the highest rates of consumption of soy and one of the lowest rates of breast cancer. Soy is perfectly good to be eaten in moderate amounts, especially if it replaces red meat as a source of protein in your diet.

Daily dose: Use soy milk in your coffee and cereal.
