    Soy Food Intake and Breast Cancer Survival.
    Xiao Ou Shu et al.
    JAMA Vol. 302 No. 22, December 9, 2009; 302(22):2437-2443.

    Results During the median follow-up of 3.9 years (range, 0.5-6.2 years), 444 deaths and 534 recurrences or breast cancer-related deaths were documented in 5033 surgically treated breast cancer patients. Soy food intake, as measured by either soy protein or soy isoflavone intake, was inversely associated with mortality and recurrence. The hazard ratio associated with the highest quartile of soy protein intake was 0.71 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.54-0.92) for total mortality and 0.68 (95% CI, 0.54-0.87) for recurrence compared with the lowest quartile of intake. The multivariate-adjusted 4-year mortality rates were 10.3% and 7.4%, and the 4-year recurrence rates were 11.2% and 8.0%, respectively, for women in the lowest and highest quartiles of soy protein intake. The inverse association was evident among women with either estrogen receptor-positive or -negative breast cancer and was present in both users and nonusers of tamoxifen.

    Conclusion Among women with breast cancer, soy food consumption was significantly associated with decreased risk of death and recurrence.

    Cancer Incidence and Mortality After Treatment With Folic Acid and Vitamin B12.
    Ebbing M, Bønaa KH, Nygård O, Arnesen E, Ueland PM, Nordrehaug JE, Rasmussen K, Njølstad I, Refsum H, Nilsen DW, Tverdal A, Meyer K, Vollset SE.

    PMID: 19920236

    Conclusion Treatment with folic acid plus vitamin B12 was associated with increased cancer outcomes and all-cause mortality in patients with ischemic heart disease in Norway, where there is no folic acid fortification of foods.

    Israeli 'cancer shift' over heart disease mortality may be led by greater risk in women with high intake of n-6 fatty acids.
    Shapira N.
    Eur J Cancer Prev. 2007 Oct;16(5):486-94.
    PMID: 17923822
    doi: 10.1097/CEJ.0b013e3280145b6d

    Population studies of Israeli Jews, Arabs, and women support the association of high n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid intake with increased cancer risk and higher female sensitivity. Research findings suggest that gender and sex hormones may influence n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid metabolism and carcinogenesis. This appears to be the first time gender has been proposed to modulate national cancer epidemiology, suggesting implications for differential nutritional prevention, warranting further research.

    A multicountry ecologic study of risk and risk reduction factors for prostate cancer mortality.
    Grant WB.
    Eur Urol. 2004 Mar;45(3):271-9.
    PMID: 15036670

    CONCLUSIONS: These results are consistent with insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), being an important risk factor for prostate cancer, with alcohol and calcium being less important risk factors, and with allium family vegetables, and, to a lesser extent, vitamin D being important risk reduction factors. These results should provide guidance for additional studies on dietary and environmental links to prostate cancer.

    Prospective study of predictors of vitamin D status and cancer incidence and mortality in men.
    Giovannucci E, Liu Y, Rimm EB, Hollis BW, Fuchs CS, Stampfer MJ, Willett WC.
    J Natl Cancer Inst. 2006 Apr 5;98(7):451-9.
    PMID: 16595781
    doi:10.1093/jnci/djj101

    Conclusions: Low levels of vitamin D may be associated with increased cancer incidence and mortality in men, particularly for digestive-system cancers. The vitamin D supplementation necessary to achieve a 25(OH)D increment of 25 nmol/L may be at least 1500 IU/day.

    Br J Cancer. 2009 Feb 10;100(3):450-4. Epub 2009 Jan 20.
    PMID: 19156140
    doi:10.1038/sj.bjc.6604865

    The serum level of 25(OH)D may be involved in disease progression and is a potential marker of prognosis in patients with prostate cancer.

    Vitamin D is associated with improved survival in early-stage non-small cell lung cancer patients.
    Zhou W, Suk R, Liu G, Park S, Neuberg DS, Wain JC, Lynch TJ, Giovannucci E, Christiani DC.
    Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2005 Oct;14(10):2303-9.
    PMID: 16214909

    In conclusion, the joint effects of surgery season and recent vitamin D intake seem to be associated with the survival of early-stage non-small cell lung cancer patients.

    Circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin d levels and survival in patients with colorectal cancer.
    Ng K, Meyerhardt JA, Wu K, Feskanich D, Hollis BW, Giovannucci EL, Fuchs CS.
    J Clin Oncol. 2008 Jun 20;26(18):2984-91.
    PMID: 18565885
    DOI: 10.1200/JCO.2007.15.1027

    Conclusion Among patients with colorectal cancer, higher prediagnosis plasma 25(OH)D levels were associated with a significant improvement in overall survival. Further study of the vitamin D pathway and its influence on colorectal carcinogenesis and cancer progression is warranted.
