AYER, Mass. Vitasoy announced Friday the launch of a breast health education initiative tackling the misperception that soy may be risky for people with breast cancer to include in their diet.
As part of the initiative, the company will serve complimentary soymilk to participants October?s breast health month activities. Additionally, the company is promoting its pink 8-ounce chocolate organic soymilks, which feature the breast health movement?s iconic pink ribbon symbol and information to sign up for the Vitasoy breast health e-newsletter atwww.vitasoy-usa.com/breasthealth.
“Soymilk is safe for people with a history of cancer when it is taken as part of a healthy diet,” said Suzanne Dixon, an recognized expert in cancer nutrition. “It also supports overall health because it is cholesterol-free, high in protein and a good source of calcium and other vitamins and minerals.”
