In mice that were fed dried Sun Soup powder, tumor growth was slowed by 53–74%. And laboratory tests showed that Sun Soup contains inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), a compound that slows the growth of cancer cells. It also contains genistein, daidzein, and coumestrol, which are phytoestrogens (also known as isoflavones) found in soybeans. Sun Soup was also associated with improvements in survival in small studies of late-stage, non-small cell lung cancer patients. Larger studies are needed.
