No concern: Great question. A recent german observational study found the following in post menopausal women: ". High and low consumption of soybeans as well as of sunflower and pumpkin seeds were associated with significantly reduced breast cancer risk compared to no consumption (or = 0.83, 95% ci = 0.70-0.97; and or = 0.66, 95% ci = 0.77-0.97, respectively)." therefore, enjoy your soy milk.
