Topic of Cancer

In several studies, soy protein has been shown to offer protection from hormone-related cancers, including breast cancer and prostate cancer, but a new study shows that soy may also offer some protection from colon cancer, one of the most deadly forms of cancer. Researchers found that diets containing soy protein not only helped to protect from colon cancer, but of those subjects who developed the cancer, the tumors were smaller and fewer. Soy protein was also found to lower cholesterol and protect the hearts and kidneys of diabetic patients, whose organs are often damaged by diabetes. Watkins high-protein SoyNilla beverage mix* contains 13.5 grams of soy protein per serving and is fat-free, cholesterol-free, high in calcium and a good source of fiber—another factor associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer. Just mix with water, milk, soymilk or your favorite juice or beverage for a smooth, creamy, high-protein drink that takes just seconds to make. Add Watkins Cinnamon, Vanilla, fruit or any of Watkins flavorful extracts for a variety of different tastes.
