Prostate Cancer

Soy and Prostate Cancer

04/19/2007

Question:

I read that soy may help prostate cancer but could hurt someone in the advanced stages of it: http://psa-rising.com/nutri/index.php/?p=43

I`m not sure if my grandpa is in an advanced stage but he drinks chocolate soy milk and I was wondering if this was bad. The article seemed to talk only about soy in food.

Thanks

Answer:

I tried to reach the web site that you gave and could not. I am unaware of soy causing problems in advanced prostate cancer and I would suspect that your grandfather can enjoy his chocolate soy milk in moderation without ill effect.
