Oestrogen-mimickers: Chemical in bread, soybean may reverse breast cancer therapy

Oestrogen-mimicking compounds found in breads, soybean and a range of commonly consumed grains can reverse the effects of ‘breakthrough’ drug therapy used to treat breast cancer, scientists have found. The study, published in the journal Cell Chemical Biology, suggests that exposure to chemical compounds called xenoestrogens may significantly reduce the effectiveness of anti-oestrogen treatments for cancer. “Breast cancer patients taking Read More
