Populations consuming soybeans have reduced rates of breast, colon and prostate cancer possibly due, in part, to the presence in soybeans of two estrogenic isoflavones, genistein and daidzein. This study investigated the genotoxicity of these soya isoflavones and their interactions with 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA)-induced sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) in bone marrow cells and DNA adduct formations in liver and mammary glands of mice. Groups of female ICR mice were pretreated i.p… CONTINUE READING
