Is there a definitive medical consensus on the risk of cancer from eating soybeans?

I've been eating more soy lately (say two or three times a week as part of a meal and once or twice a week as a snack). A friend noticed and flipped out, saying I'm increasing my risk of cancer.
Googling reveals answers all over the map. So is there definitive and current answer to the question of whether soy increases the risk of cancer? Does that answer vary, in any way, based on ones age, sex, or race?
