Soy: natural ingredient of Wonderup

Some articles about the health benefits of soy isoflavones in the treatment of menopausal problems
The Miracle Bean (continued)

Soy: natural ingredient of WonderupThe NBC television program, “Dateline” on 9 June, reported the overall benefits of consuming soy products. One of the arguments emphasized in the article was the connection between an incre-
ased consumption of soy and protective effects against breast cancer. Soy incre-
ases the production of the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). DHEA is necessary for the growth and development of all tissues and adult tissues require DHEA for proper maintenance.
One hypothesis subordinate to this is that the stability of cells depends on DHEA. This has resulted in explanation of cancer as a result of reduced DHEA. The reduction of DHEA may trigger the activation of oncogenes (cancer genes). DHEA begins to decline after 20-25 years, reaching very low levels in old age. The hypothesis is that this is the reason why the incidence of cancer increases with age. Measurable levels of DHEA are reduced in women with breast cancer, and this reduction result about nine years before diagnosis (Geriatrics 1982, 37: 157).

A series of studies shows that treatment with DHEA provides a protective effect against breast cancer. That is, raising DHEA reduces the incidence of breast cancer. A citation also reported the beneficial effects of DHEA in other important areas of older women. “These data show that DHEA exerts a stimulatory effect on bone mass and an inhibitory effect on triglycerides, as well as having a protective effect on the development of mammary carcinoma induced by DMBA in mice. These data suggest that more than to reducing the risk of breast cancer, DHEA replace-
ment therapy may also have beneficial effects on lipid metabolism in women receiving this therapy” (Endocrinol. 1997, 138: 3387).

Therefore, increasing DHEA reduces the incidence of breast cancer. A link between consumption of bones, reduction of breast cancer, and increased levels of DHEA sulfate (the precursor of DHEA) was reported in 1995. “There is also evidence that soy products may influence the risk factors for cancer, such as levels of endogenous hormones. Prelimi-
nary data from our group indicate that young Adventist women that are vegetarians with high soy supply in their diet and a lower risk of breast cancer may have higher levels of an adrenal androgen, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate” (J. Nutr. 1995; 125 (3 Suppl): 709S-712S).
