But high estrogen levels cause cancer....

In Response To: estrogen and soy (Suzanne (0))

I am premenopausal. My gut feeling is that it is a mistake to jump on the soy/estrogen band wagon like more is always better. High estrogen levels cause cancer. I don't even think postmenopausal women should take estrogen. Dr. Lee states that natural progesterone, not estrogen is what is really needed. This has no side effects, is inexpensive, and has been reported to increase bone density more than anything else. I think that the media gets a hold of some new health factoid and blows it out of proportion. Yeah some daily soy might be a big improvement for someone used to eating burgers all the time. But for someone like me who is already a lifetime vegetarian the soy made my estrogen way too high. But then again, I was eating about 60 grams of soy a day. That was a shock to my system.

I did read what Dr. D said. I don't know that I understood his point. Was it that a property in soy appears to attack cancer cells? OK, but what if you don't have cancer now? Can the increase in estrogen from the soy cause cancer? That's something to think about.
