Although survival from breast cancer is high - at a rate of 82% five-year survival - it remains the second most common cause of cancer death in women, with an average of 690 deaths a year in Ireland during 2011 - 2012.

Thus, Dr. Zhang declared that they did not meet a negative effect of soy on women who underwent hormone therapies.

Researchers studied women who, as high schoolers, had consumed diets thought to increase levels of inflammation in the body.

Although the traditional Mediterranean diet involves moderate consumption of alcohol, in this study it was excluded from the criteria, as it is a known risk factor for breast cancer and is linked to 12,000 cases annually.

However, other research has suggested that the estrogen-like effects of isoflavones may reduce the effectiveness of endocrine therapies used to treat breast cancer.

The Mediterranean diet is a largely plant-based diet.

EU Parliament Seeks To Reinstate Visas For American Travelers
European Union member countries have backed a proposal to allow Ukrainian citizens into the bloc for short stays without visas. Ambassadors of European Union member states on Thursday endorsed an agreement reached by negotiators earlier this week.

It included more than 6,000 American and Canadian breast cancer patients.

In a new study researchers have found Mediterranean diet helps in reducing the risk of oestrogen-receptor negative breast cancer by about 40 percent. The study showed no link between high levels of isoflavone intake and a greater mortality in women taking hormone therapy medications.

"Women who did not receive endocrine therapy as a treatment for their breast cancer had a weaker, but still statistically significant, association", she added.

She added that soy food products can act as a shield for women diagnosed with hormone receptor-negative breast cancer. Of those studies, 3,354 women developed breast cancer, but 1,033 of those women were excluded due to their inconsistent diet and/or prior history of breast cancer.

It's important to note that the study found only an association between an inflammatory diet and the risk of breast cancer, and can not prove that this type of diet caused the women's breast cancer. "Our findings suggest that survival may be better in patients with a higher consumption of isoflavones from soy food", John said.
