"But Ziegler said it is too early for parents to start adding soy to their daughters' diets."

Why not?

Another reason I am glad that L loves tofu!  Plus I will take a 20% reduction in breast cancer risk with my family history any day! :)

yeah that quote makes no sense...  i understand that they can't say it for sure 100% yet so they're not telling people to load up and they'll be cured, but after studying that many women and seeing the result i don't see why they just wouldnt say "it wouldnt hurt to add some soy, cus the odds are it's a really good thing"  especially since they stress that the age girls start eating it can be very important.

I am really impressed that this also mentioned males with breast cancer. You hardly ever hear about it, even on the Relay for Life things.

Huh... the link was taken down.  I wonder if the Dairy council has struck again?  >:(

here's another one - i don't know if it's the exact same article - but it's about the same study.  they specify asian-american girls, but that's mainly who they studied so it seems like it would be helpful for all girls.
