Podcast 69: Eating soy foods and survival after breast cancer

I’ve been on vacation, and I hope that you’ve managed to sneak some time away as well.

In December, JAMA published an article associating increased survival after breast cancer with eating even modest amounts of soy food regularly. The work was done using a cohort in Shanghai, and the study’s first author agreed to an interview.

If you have comments (and there seems to have been more over the holidays, for some reason) please feel free to chime in. I’ll be better about evaluating them promptly for appropriateness.

You can also leave voice mail at 1-617-440-4374 and email me at jelia@jwatch.org.
