Soy based diets don't cause the cancer, it exacerbates certain types of breast cancer. So if you have that kind of breast cancer, you should avoid soy products because of the amounts of estrogen can make the cancer worse. Like I said though, it does not cause it. So if you don't have the cancer, or no family history of breast cancer, you should be ok eating soy.

I think she was referring to this article. Plant protein does not promote cancer like animal protein does but... www.breastcancer.org/tips/nutrition/

I haven't heard of the cancer link, and I am always skeptical when I hear/read something that isn't in a peer-reviewed journal. People can say all kinds of things without proof or scientific study.

Thanks to all for the tofu answers. I'll try that fake egg salad recipe.

yes - they're very similar - but go on experiment.
I like to use either when I make fake egg salad.
(mashed tofu, chopped chives, finely chopped
celery, veganaise and a little Dijon mustard).

I use extra firm all the time - regardless of what the recipe calls for. I just like the consistency more.

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

I bought both firm and extra-firm tofu. Can I use extra-firm tofu in recipes that call for firm tofu?
