Fight Cancer with Soy

Soy contains compounds called isoflavones that can prevent the growth of tumors and block the stimulation of cancer cells through hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone. There are also other substances in soy, such as saponins, phenolic acids, phytic acid, phytosterols, and protein kinase inhibitors, that have anticancer properties. There are isoflavone supplements currently available on the market in pill form.
