A research study involving subjects with prostate cancer showed that 69% of those taking soy had their PSA level decrease or remain stable. 20% of them had a dramatic PSA reduction in only 3 months. The research leader claims that cultures that consume high levels of isoflavones, soy or soy products had the lowest rate of hormonal cancer. She believes that 2 to 3 ounces of soy 2 to 3 times a week is sufficient to gain the benefits. Another study shows that a higher Vitamin E intake translated into a 42% reduced risk of bladder cancer. Good vitamin E sources included peppers, spinach, mustard greens, almonds, sunflower seeds and vegetable oils. Folate found in fruit and vegetables is also known to reduce the risk of bladder cancer by almost half. Folate is essential for DNA repair. Vitamin E is best derived from food sources as supplementation can be dangerous and is generally not as effective.
