SOY AND BLADDER CANCER: Soy proponents like to point to low rates of beast cancer in Asian countries as proof that consumption of soy can protect against cancer. They fail to mention that Asians have high rates of other types of cancer compared to westerners. A new study conducted in Singapore found that consumption of soyfood was associated with higher rates of bladder cancer, and the relationship was statistically significant. Similar results were obtained for soy protein and soy isoflavones. The soy-cancer relationship became stronger when the analysis was restricted to subjects with longer duration of follow-up (Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 2002 Dec;11(12):1674-7).
