					Therefore, take more soy products, such as tofu, miso, tempeh, soy milk and soy nuts.
Cells dividing too rapidly may pose a risk of a genetic accident, resulting in alteration
in the genetic structure of cells in the breast.

Research studies have also indicated that a vegetarian diet high in fruits and
vegetables may delay the onset of puberty, that is, menarche in women. Researchers
have found that greater intake of soy protein may increase the menstrual cycles by an
average of two and a half days. Lignins in oats, barley, whole wheat, nuts and seeds
may inhibit estrogen synthesis; therefore, a diet rich in these foods may reduce the
production of estrogen. Flaxseed, for example, gives you over 100 times more lignins
than any other oil seeds and grains.

By the same token, an early onset of menopause, may also lower the cancer risk.

If you cannot get yourself pregnant or increase the number of your pregnancy, you
can at least lengthen your menstrual cycle through diet. Accordingly, reducing
estrogen may reduce a woman's risk of breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cause of death in women. Late onset of
menstruation may also reduce the number of menstrual cycles throughout a woman's
lifespan, and thus reduces the risk of breast cancer.

This discrepancy can be explained by the fact that the menstrual cycle of women in
the United States is approximately 26 to 29 days, compared to the average of 32 days
for women in Japan. In addition, you can also protect yourself against breast cancer
by eating dietary fiber. Therefore, extra dietary fiber shortens the time the excess
estrogen may remain in the body.

The question is: How to reduce the estrogen level in a woman's lifespan? The risk of
breast cancer is significantly lower in Japan than that in the United
States—about one-fourth. Increased estrogen may over stimulate cell growth in
the breast as much as four times, and any excess of estrogen may increase the risk of
cancer by stimulating cell growth in the breasts, ovaries and uterus in women. Excess
estrogen in the body is sent to the liver where it is partially deactivated and excreted
into the bile to be subsequently reabsorbed or eliminated. There may be many causes
of breast cancer, one of which is a link to having too much estrogen (female hormone
manufactured by the ovaries in women and in small amounts by the testicles in men)
in the body. So, the length of the menstrual cycles may hold the key to reducing
cancer risk in women, because the shorter the menstrual cycles, the less production of
estrogen, and the lower the cancer risk.

In a most recent cancer study, researchers announced that cancer costs the global
economy nearly $900 billion a year—more than any other cause of death.
