Breast Cancer

 

Breast Cancer Statistics

 

      Globally - Breast cancer is the second most common cancer killer of women - only lung cancer is more deadly. Currently annually diagnosed in well over a million people globally, and killing about 500,000 people.

 

      In the U.S. - according to the National Breast cancer Foundation - there are 200,000 newly diagnosed cases of breast cancer each year, and 40,000 women each year are dying of this prolific disease. There has been a disturbing increase in the breast cancer rates over the past 50 years.

 

         1 out of 8 women who live to age 85 will develop breast cancer.

         Breast cancer is the leading cause of death for women age 40 to 55.

         15% of all breast cancers occur in women under age 45 - having more aggressive cancers with lower recovery rates.

         80% of breast lumps are NON-cancerous.

         70% of breast cancers are found through breast self-exams.

         80% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of breast cancer.

 

U.S. Female Breast Cancer Rates by region

  (rates per 100,000 people)

-       The incidence rate for the United States is 121.9 - Incidence rates are highest in the Northeast U.S. Census region (129.6), followed by the West (123.0), Midwest (120.2), and South (118.1).

 

-       The death rate for the United States is 22.5 - Death rates are highest in the Midwest U.S. Census region (23.5), followed by the Northeast (22.7), South (22.6), and West (21.0).

      Men are not immune - although their odds of having breast cancer are about 100 times better than women; ~1,700 men will develop breast cancer and 450 will die from it each year.

 

-       Men who work around gasoline and combustion products have a significantly higher risk of developing breast cancer.

Causes /Risk Factors

 

      Research at the American Institute of Cancer Research estimated that about 40% of U.S. breast cancer cases could be prevented by making better lifestyle choices. This figure is likely a low estimate, since the latest paleoanthropological research shows that cancer was virtually nonexistent in humans before poor diet and pollution appeared.

 

Finally, Proof that cancer is a man-made disease

 

 

      More than 2 alcoholic drinks/day - according to data published in the British Journal of Cancer in 2002, 4%  of all breast cancers (~44,000 cases a year) in the United Kingdom are due to alcohol consumption. Could this be due to magnesium depletion in the body consequential to drinking alcohol?

      Estradiol speeds up breast cancer (in estrogen- sensitive cancer types)

 

-       In contrast, levels of PROGESTERONE (estrogen’s balancing partner)  decrease with age –  In women this decrease occurs about the age of 35 and men about ten years later.

 

Estrogen Dominance

 

      Double blind, placebo controlled, randomized study used transdermal PROGESTERONE and ESTRADIOL (estrogen) on women (n=40) who had breast biopsies - one at the beginning of the study and another 13 days later.

 

-       Estrogen and the PROGESTERONE did not show up in the serum, but showed up in the breast tissue at over 100% increased levels above placebo.

-       Based on PCNA numbers:

 

1. Topical PROGESTERONE reduced cell proliferation by 410%

2. Topical Estrogen increased cell proliferation by 223%

 

 

Genes do not have the last word

 

      Breast cancer risk increases only ~20-30% with a family history of the disease - mutations of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are said to increase breast cancer risk to 80%;

 

      However, it is the expression of your genes that dictates the risk – not simply their existence. Gene expression can easily be controlled by whether they are turned on or not, via lifestyle and dietary choices.

 

 

Preventive Measures

 

      Vitamin D / Sunshine is #1 cancer fighter

 

-       Cheap and natural solution

 

-       This steroid hormone has receptors in and influences almost all body cells – once converted to its active form (calcitriol) in the liver, kidneys and other tissues, your organs use it to repair damage and reduce cancer cells.

 

         Increases self-destruction of mutated cells – preventing their replication; cancer cells usually begin as mutations;

         Shown to shrivel up cancer cells in days

         Reduces spread/reproduction of cancer cells;

         Causes cell differentiation – cancer cells often lack differentiation, whereby a cell becomes more specialized by changes (mainly due to modifications in gene expression) in shape, size, membrane potential, metabolic activity and signal responsiveness.

         Reduces new blood vessel growth from existing ones – angiogenesis is a step in the transition of dormant tumors becoming cancerous;

 

-       Ideal level circulating 25(OH)D CALCIDIOL is 65-90 ng/ml

 

-       Synergistic with other cancer treatments

 

-       Prevents many cancer deaths - one landmark study examining just breast and colorectal cancer deaths, determined that increasing vitamin D could prevent 600,000 deaths each year.

 

-       Vitamin D is effective against at least 16 cancer types;

 

Vitamin D against cancer

 

-       Found to work at least as well as Tamoxifen - without the detrimental side-effects.

      Emotional control

 

-       Address stress – E.g. Using Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT) or SOTA Brain Tuner;

 

-       Work on positive attitude

THOUGHTS

 

      Supplement with Iodine - prevents cancer formation and spread, especially reproductive organ cancers;

Iodine against cancer

 

      Avoid excess iron - contributes to oxidant activity; Ferritin, the iron transport protein, tends to increase after menstruation ceases; should not be above 80; donating blood lowers ferritin level;

 

Iron and Aluminum toxicity in breast cancer

 

      Eat nutritional food

 

-       Don’t eat processed/refined foods;

 

-       Ensure all nutrients – especially:

 

         Antioxidants especially vitamins A, C, E, and ubiquinol (active form of CoQ10); antioxidants control radical damage implicated in cancer; fight microbial imbalance;

 

         Omega-3 (as krill oil) shown to influence BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes against cancer;

 

      Regular moderate physical exercise

 

      Improve INSULIN Receptor Sensitivity - exercise and control intake of refined carbs and sugar; iodine also helps improve receptor sensitivity. 

 

      Reduce body’s estrogen levels

 

-       Maintain a healthy body weight - estrogen hormone is produced in fat tissue, and may trigger breast cancer.

 

-       I3C / DIM - Phytochemicals such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and sulforaphane are components of cruciferous vegetables which exhibit antitumorigenic activity associated with altered carcinogen metabolism and detoxification. Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a major metabolite of I3C formed in the gut and represents a new class of antiestrogens that inhibit breast cancer growth. It also encourages cells that are abnormally multiplying to stop reproducing and die.

Researchers have found that DIM and genistein (a major isoflavone in soy) reduce production of two proteins whose chemotactic attraction to each other is necessary for the spread of breast and ovarian cancers.

When applying purified versions of DIM and genistein to motile cancer cells, the researchers could literally watch these cells come to a near halt. When either compound was applied, migration and invasion were substantially reduced.

Both DIM and genistein are already being developed for use as a preventive and a
chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, although more extensive toxicological studies are necessary as at the time of writing (2007).

 

DIM – Estrogen-blocker with anti-cancer benefits

 

Limit alcohol to one drink a day

 

      Breastfeed exclusively for up to six month – reduces breast cancer risk;

 

 

 

Breast Screening

 

      Research confirms mammograms do NOT save lives - Adding a mammogram to a careful breast examination does not improve breast cancer survival rates; furthermore mammograms may actually be involved in causing breast cancer:

 

-       Annual breast mammogram (4 x-ray films/breast) results in 1 rad of radiation – 1000 times a chest x-ray; high-dose radiation is considered a medium/high risk factor for breast cancer.

 

According to a recent World Wire press release:

 

"Routine mammography delivers an unrecognized high dose of radiation, warn Drs. Epstein and Bertell. If a woman follows the current guidelines for premenopausal screening, over a 10 year period she would receive a total dosage of about 5 rads.

This approximates the level of exposure to radiation of a Japanese woman one mile from the epicenter of atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima or Nagasaki."

 

Health hazards of mammography  have been well established. 

 

      Thermography provides a better method for breast screening - Involves using an infrared heat-sensing scanner/camera to graphically depict temperature variations of breast tissue using different colors. Available since the 1960’s, the technology has now much improved.

 

         Painless

 

         Risk-free - no mechanical compression of tissue, non-invasive, no ionizing radiation.

 

         Early detection – enabling earlier healing protocols; detection as much as 10 years earlier than mammogram or physical exam;

 

Detects physiological/metabolic changes – as opposed to anatomical changes seen
