Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. It is also one of the leading causes of cancer deaths among women of all races. Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer prostate cancer is the most frequent cancer in men and one of the leading causes of death. Both of these conditions are similar in that they are hormone dependent cancers and occur very infrequently in one the most studied and long living populations in the world – the Okinawa Centenarians. Unprocessed foods diets, rich in antioxidants and cruciferous vegetables, as well as whole soy foods may play a significant protective role. Kirk will talk about the soy controversy and try and put it in perspective and cook a simple, hormone protective tempeh and cruciferous vegetable stir fry; a simple miso garlic soup with shredded Brussels sprouts; an edamame, cruciferous veggie bean dip; and tofu/berry flax “milk” shake.
