I have breast cancer, ER positive. I am told to stay away from soy. There is soy lichen in everything; plus now I find out that antioxidant, berries, vitamin C, all have things that produce estrogen. I don’t need that. What to eat is becoming overwhelming. Any answers would be appreciated.
Depending on medication used to treat your cancer, you should discuss this with your oncologist at your next visit. He/she may believe that the benefits of some of these foods may outweigh the small additional risk of estrogenic stimulation.
