Cancer drug being made from soaked soybeans

Cancer drug being made from soaked soybeans

Human beings are a funny lot.  Instead of looking at where the breast cancers, colon cancers, prostate cancers, bladder cancers, lymphoma cancers and oral cancers are lowest in the world (Japan), and then asking them what they do, we try to find the answer in a pill…

The Asians have mastered soybean superfoods
The incidence of many common cancers is 10 TIMES lower in Japan than in New Zealand, Australia, North America or Western Europe.  Japan eats around 10 times more soybean rich foods than we do and the tiny island of Okinawa, with the lowest levels of cancer and heart disease in Japan, eat more fruits, vegetables and soybeans than any other area in Japan.  So is there a connection?  Of course!

Science continues to prove the obvious
At the University of Missouri, a group of plant scientists have found a simple way to extract the powerful anticancer chemical called the ‘Bowman-Birk Protease Inhibitor’ (BBI) from soybeans.  This unique protein has demonstrated very strong anti-cancer chemoprotective properties.  It has been shown in many studies over the decades since 1962 that it is effective against breast, colon, liver, lung, esophageal, and oral cancers.

I have an even better, cheaper and faster way to get these benefits into your body and health regime.  Start eating more tempeh, tamari, miso, natto and good quality, traditionally-made tofu and soymilk. 

Just like the healthy Okinawans. 

Just like the healthy Japanese. 

Just like the healthiest and oldest group of Americans, with 10 times more centenarians than the US average; the Loma Linda Californians.
