Isoflavones, Important Components of Soy

What makes Soy so effective against cancer? Currently the scientific community is focused on the isoflavones, particularly genistein and daidzein, important components of soy.

While the Chinese began cultivating the soybean and recording its medical benefits approximately 5,000 years ago, (it is one of the five crops named as sacred by the Chinese Emperor Shin-nong (2967-2579 BC), modern science is just beginning to understand its effectiveness in preventing and treating disease in the body.

Controlling blood sugar will assist the body in combating may symptoms such as "diabetic thirst", diabetic retinopathy and arthritic and inflammatory conditions often associated with this disease process.

The scientific community is in agreement over the extraordinary benefits of isoflavones in soy.

In addition to these recent studies, Chinese medical writings show soybeans effective against conditions still to be tested in modern labs: renal disease, edema, poisoning, skin diseases, specific vitamin deficiencies, constipation, diarrhea, toxemia during pregnancy, anemia and leg ulcers.

Soy-isoflavones are powerful antioxidants beneficial in cleansing and detoxifying the entire body, thus slowing the aging process. Autoimmunity, prostates and kidney problems, as well as inflammation and repeated mild infections are all associated with aging. For menopausal women, these conditions can be accompanied with bone loss and a homonal imbalance.

The Scientific Evidense

"The scientific evidense suggests the protective effect of a diet high in soya proteins may at least partly explain the low rates of breast cancer in China and Japan." Dr. cathy Reed, Preventing Breast Cancer, The Politics of an Epidemic, London: Pandora. 1995.

"Eating tofu may cut the risk of developing colon cancer by about one half." C.A. Poole, A case-control study of diet and colon cancer. Dissertation. Harvard School of Public Health. Boston, 1989.

"Soy foods cut the risk of rectal cancer by more than 80% and the risk of colon cancer by 40%." T. Watanabe, et all, A case-control study of cancer of the rectum and colon. Nippon Shokakibyo Gakkai Zasshi 81:185-193, 1984.

"It was found that women with the highest intake of soya food had less than one-half the risk of breast cancer development compared with those who had only a low intake of soya food. The lowest breast cancer risk was found in females who ingested about 55 g. of soya per day, which is equivalent to approximately two servings of soya foods per day. " H P Lee et all, /dietary effects on breast-cancer risk in Singapore. Lancet 337:1197-1200, 1991.

"Of the 8000 men studied, it was found that those who consumed tofu once per week or less were much more likely to get prostate cancer by a factor of three times compared to those who ate tofu daily." Severson et all. A prospective study of demographics, diet and prostate cancer among men of Japanese ancestry in Hawaii. Cancer Res 49:1857-1860, 1989.

The scientific community is quick to point out, that not all soy products contain the isoflavones genistein or daidzein. The nutrient value of soy depends heavily on growing and processing techniques. Using isoflavones as a marker, modern pharmaceutical technology has been used to standardize the soy used in Phyto-Soy, a Three Treasures Tea Concentrate.
