In women near or after menopause, soy seems to be able to relieve hot flashes, reduce the risk of osteoporosis (weak bones), and possibly lower blood pressure.
In men, there is some evidence that soy milk might reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer.
Soy does not seem to be able to relieve hot flashes in women with breast cancer who are receiving certain anti-cancer drugs, like tamoxifen (Nolvadex), that can cause hot flashes.
There isn't enough information to know if soy is effective for the other conditions people use it for, including preventing breast and endometrial cancer.
