The raison d'etre of this website is to provide you with hard scientific information which may help you make informed decisions in your quest for health (so far I have blogged concise summaries of over 1,500 scientific studies and have had three books published).

My research is mainly focused on the effects of cholesterol, saturated fat and statin drugs on health. If you know anyone who is worried about their cholesterol levels and heart disease, or has been told to take statin drugs you could send them a link to this website, and to my statin or cholesterol or heart disease books.

Soy consumption linked to stomach & colon cancer

This post contains a summary of a study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology - 01-OCT-2000; 29(5): 832-6 and a recipe for roast lamb with chilli.

Study name and author:
Ecological study of the association between soy product intake and mortality from cancer and heart disease in Japan.
- Nagata C -
To quote the author: "Soy protein intake was significantly correlated with stomach cancer mortality rate in men" & "Soy product intake estimated as total amount as well as isoflavone and soy protein intake were significantly positively correlated with colorectal cancer mortality rates in both sexes".
So the more soy you eat, the more likely you are to suffer stomach or colon cancer.
