Use Soy Instead of milk to reduce prostate cancer risk

Eliminating cow's milk and other dairy products is an easy way to lower your risk for prostate cancer. But when you replace these foods with soy milk and other soy products, you'll also add another measure of defense. In a study of 13,855 Seventh-Day Adventist men, daily soy milk consumption was associated with a 70 percent reduction in prostate cancer risk when compared to those who never drank the beverage. Isoflavones in soy milk have been shown to inhibit growth of human prostate cancer cells and the enzyme that converts testosterone into a more powerful form of this hormone, called DHT, in the prostate gland. A similar beneficial effect was demonstrated with tofu consumption.
