A nutritionist that gave a workshop at a "cancer camp" I attended said that the problem with soy is not an issue when it is eaten as a whole food, but when it is processed into soy protein islolate and given as a supplement. So it's not clear to me from this study if eating tofu is truly a danger.

Cdfr--Here are three factoids not included in the study that might address your question:  

1) Japanese women eat lots of real soy--think edamame, tofu, and natto--because meat is so expensive there.

2) Japanese women do not use soy powders or processed soy other than soya (soy sauce).

3) Japan has a really low incidence of breast cancer.  (They also eat lots of vegetables there.)

So it seems to me that the real thing is most definitely not a danger to women in Japan (including my daughter-in-law and her female relatives!  Grandma Iwasawa is still cancer-free after 90 + years of eating soy!

tgtg, I've read things along those lines as well. Also edited my original post to include complete sentences that make sense...I should not post before I've had my coffee. :-p
