Abstract

Isoflavones also possess non-hormonal activity that is associated with the inhibition of cancer cell growth. However, their role in breast cancer has become controversial as, despite possible beneficial effects, some data from in-vitro and animal studies suggest that isoflavones, especially genistein (the aglycone of the main soybean), may stimulate the growth of oestrogen-sensitive tumours.
