Broccoli, soy anti-cancer benefits suggested

Broccoli, soy anti-cancer benefits suggested 4/17/07 "Consumption of broccoli and soy has been linked to lower risk of certain cancers, and researchers have now proposed a mechanism to explain how such foods may offer protection...Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles report that diindolylmethane (DIM), a digestive product from cruciferous vegetable digestion, and genistein, a major isoflavone in soy, may interfere with the "CXCR4/CXCL12 axis," known to play a central role in the spread of breast cancer and is also thought to play a role in the development of ovarian cancer...the doses used are comparable to use of a high dose of supplements, said researchers Erin Hsu and Oliver Hankinson from UCLA, but is unlikely to be achievable through consumption of food alone."
