Soy Maker Omits Studies That Soy May Cause Cancer

The Weston A. Price Foundation, a non-profit nutrition education foundation, is urging the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to deny a petition that would allow soy products to claim they prevent cancer. They say the petition by Solae, a manufacturer of soy protein and other processed soy products, for a FDA health claim is based on misleading research. According to experts, not only did Solae omit studies that showed soy was ineffective against cancer, but also, and even more seriously, it omitted studies that suggest soy can contribute to, cause and accelerate the growth of cancer. Of course, Solae would make a lot of money off of the cancer health claim, which may explain their "selective" reporting. I encourage you to read the entire press release below to get the details on this issue, and then read through my soy index page to learn the many reasons why soy can damage your health.
