4 Your Health: Soy not harmful to women with breast cancer

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- New evidence shows soy is safe and even beneficial for some women with breast cancer.

Past research has raised concerns that soy increases the risk of cancer so many women are told to avoid these foods. But a Tufts University study of over six thousand breast cancer patients found soy foods were not harmful.

In fact, women who consumed the most soy had a  21 percent lower risk of death than those who consumed the least.

Children with disabilities at risk for neglect or abuse

A new Australian study found that while children with disabilities make up about 10 percent of the total population they accounted for 29 percent of abuse cases. 

Children with mental disabilities and behavior disorders were at highest risk for abuse, with the exception of those with down syndrome and autism.

Social media not exactly social

Social media has Americans feeling more connected and more lonely, than ever.

A new study of 1,800 young adults found those who spent over two hours a day on social media were twice as likely to feel isolated than those who spent less than a half an hour on these sites. 

And people who checked their accounts at least 58 times a week had triple the odds of feeling lonely than than occasional users.

Experts said social media can too often replace face to face interactions. They add, these sites can also lead to jealousy and a distorted belief that others are leading happier lives.
