* Soy formula associated with higher risk of fibroids in women.
* 1 February 2010
Women who were fed soy-based infant formula as babies are 25
percent more likely to develop uterine fibroids than those who
were breastfed or given milk-based formula. Fibroids affect about
a quarter of all women and are the leading cause of hysterectomy.
This is the first study to examine whether exposure to soy
estrogens early in life is associated with fibroids development
later in life.
