Cut prostate cancer risk

A new study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports how soya foods can lower the risk of prostate cancer by up to 26 per cent. Interestingly the research found that while non-fermented soy foods (tofu and soya milk) lowered the risk, fermented ones (miso and soya sauce) did not.
