Angelina Jolie’s Breast Amputations: Not the only option

Increasing vitamin D3 & avoiding birth control drugs can also  block breast cancer

As folksinger Melissa Etheridge recently said when asked about actress Angelina Jolie’s decision to have both of her healthy breasts amputated, “I wouldn’t call it the brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer.”

Etheridge, like Jolie, was born with a defective “cancer fix-it” gene. Unlike Jolie, however, Etheridge was actually diagnosed with breast cancer nine years ago. However, the singer, now cancer-free,  is among an increasing number of women who understand there are alternatives to the poison, burn and cut prevention options that traditional western medicine continues to offer women as their best choices when confronted with an increased risk of developing breast cancer.

“My belief is that cancer comes from inside you and so much of it has to do with the environment of your body,” Etheridge told a reporter last week.

Recent critical research finally tells us lots about why 240,000 women in the U.S. currently develop invasive breast cancer each year. This same research offers all women logical, healthy and inexpensive ways to stop most breast cancer before it can start.

  •  Increasing your vitamin D3 blood serum levels
  • Avoiding birth control and other progestin-based drugs

are two easy and  incredibly significant ways to actually block most breast cancer from taking root.

How does vitamin D3 stop breast cancer before it starts?

The DINOMIT theroy of breast cancer, developed by epidemiologist Cedric Garland, during three decades of research at the University of California, San Diego, shows how sufficient levels of vitamin D3 in the body enable breast cells to interlock with one another, forming a protective shield when a single breast cell becomes mutated. These interlocking cells block cancerous tumors from forming.

 How or why can  all contraceptive drugs, including Yaz, Seasonale, and the Mirena IUD, along with  Prempro, (used by  post- menopausal women),  and progestin-based fertility drugs,  also cause breast cancer?

Ask Josef Penninger! This young Viennese geneticist, founder of the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Austrian Academy of Science, recently discovered that progestin can activate the protein RANKL in breast cells; RANKL can then mutate a cell and can exponentially increase cell duplication of a single breast cancer cell, causing breast tumors to form. This dramatic finding won Penninger a $7.4 million Innovators Award from the Department of Defense’s Breast Cancer Research Fund last fall.

But even today, most medical centers, along with our wealthiest breast cancer foundations, Susan G. Komen For the Cure, Avon Walk for Women, and the American Cancer Society, continue to warn women, “We really don’t know what causes breast cancer.”

Using their huge misinformation campaigns, these well-heeled breast cancer giants, financed largely by pharmaceutical and radiology companies, generate more fear, followed by more breast amputations, and more breast reconstructions each year.

Enter Angelina Jolie and the 100,000 other women in the U.S. who had one or both breasts amputated last year.  These individuals have usually been diagnosed with one of three conditions:

  • invasive breast cancer
  • some type of non cancerous breast condition
  • a positive test  for being born with  a mutated “cancer fix-it” gene…called BRCA 1 or BRCA 2

Sadly, oncologists, mammogram clinics and major cancer centers rarely talk to women about increasing their vitamin D3 blood serum level to 50-80 ng/ml, and avoiding any progestin-based drugs as options that can also stop the disease before it starts.  Why not?

  • Most physicians don’t follow the newest research on the protective effects of vitamin D3; nor do most doctors follow the new research that explains how progestin causes breast cancer. Stopping breast cancer before it starts, after all, is rarely their job.
  • Also, most physicians believe that the well-publicized “national” Vitamin D3 reports, conducted by the Institute of Medicine during the past few years, are valid. These doctors do not realize that the Institute’s study panels, which continue to find Vitamin D3 useless in preventing breast cancer, are designed and funded by pharmaceutical company interests.
  • Meanwhile, most physicians believe that contraceptive pills and patches and other progestin-based drugs do not   “significantly” increase breast cancer rates.  However, this statement, still published by pharmaceutical companies and the American Cancer Society, is contradicted by 97% of studies done on the subject in the past decade.
  • Also … and very sadly…most physicians say that their liability insurance may not cover their practice if they recommend increasing vitamin D3 and stopping progestin drugs, instead of advocating surgery, radiation (mammograms)  or pharmaceutical drugs as the best ways for a client to stop breast cancer before it starts.
  • Finally …most oncologists don’t make much money recommending more vitamin D3 supplements and increasing vitamin D3 by limited safe tanning, or by having a client stop using progestin drugs. Don’t forget…cancer specialists make a good portion of their annual income prescribing radiation, drugs and/or surgeries.

No wonder most women, including Jolie, remain fearful when they hear they are at high risk to develop breast cancer. Double breast amputations are even more likely if the woman’s health insurance will pay for these new perky breasts, with nipple-saving surgery that also offer a firm bra-free existence until the silicone or saline implants need to be  replaced  every ten years.

However, for more and more women, including Melissa Etheridge and myself,  avoiding progestin drugs, taking vitamin D3 supplements, getting more D3-producing UVB rays from safe (very limited)  indoor and outdoor tanning, and making other lifestyle and dietary changes, create a much gentler,  happier and better-informed wellness choice.

STOP Keep plastics out of your microwave & dishwasher

Still pooh-poohing those friends or mothers who keep saying… stop microwaving food in any kind of plastic container.

If you still put plastic containers in your dishwasher and say, What the heck!

Those are two silly things to do if you are trying to follow a better-safe-than-sorry lifestyle. …. it’s just that all of these bits and pieces of chemical estrogens that shed off of your plastic containers add up….
Then .. poof you are the 1 in 5 woman in Massachusetts or the 1 in 8 woman in North Carolina or Iowa who ends up with a diagnosis of invasive breast cancer.

“Why me?” you ask.

Not any one single thing is going to give you breast cancer. Research tells us it is that cocktail effect that can catch up with us , if we don’t watch out… or even if we do.

• A hard hit spray of DDT when you were 14
Birth control pills since you were 20… and now you are 40 and still using
• Microwaving a meal a day in your favorite plastic containers
• Washing plastic utensils and dishes in the dishwasher every day
• Not knowing your current vitamin D3 level (it should be between 60ng/ml & 80 ng/ml if you want that protective layer of gardol… remember gardol ??!

Your toxic cocktail is getting pretty thick with early and ongoing assaults with chemical estrogens in your earlier years and in your current everyday life.

Why not try a better- safe- than- sorry lifestyle today…. and eliminate three of these four toxins from your life right now.

The life you save can be your own.

BPA Baby Bottles & Increasing breast cancer in America's younger women; What is the connection?

Increasing numbers of younger American women were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer during the past eight years. According to American Cancer Society statistics, pre-menopausal women (under age 54) had a 41% increase in invasive breast cancer from 2002 to 2010.

This sharp increase in triple negative, HER2 positive and estrogen/progesterone positive invasive breast cancers probably means that younger women are absorbing higher levels of chemical and animal hormones, hormone disruptors and/or are getting zapped with ionizing radiation while in the womb and/or during their infancy, childhood, teen and/or younger adult years.

Some laboratory tests have shown that bisphenol A or BPA, a chemical hormone disruptor, used to make baby bottles soft and pliable, can  leach into the milk when the bottles are heated.  Absorbing enough BPA over time can sometimes cause cell mutation, often a  first step in the development of breast cancer or other adverse biological changes in infants.  Based on these studies, Canada banned the use of BPA in baby bottles beginning in 2011 and the European Union will ban the sale and import of these same bottles in 2011.  “Better to be safe than sorry” is the motive behind these  new  prevention laws.

Unfortunately, the U.S. government has not yet banned the sale of BPA in baby bottles. Just last week, after being pressured by the chemical industry lobby, GOP Senate leaders again refused to allow a vote that would have banned BPA from baby bottles.

What causes breast cancer?

Breast cancer only seems to happen when an individual absorbs a personalized cocktail of radiation, chemical hormones, animal hormones and/or hormone disruptors from a variety of sources, over a period of years. But often, the younger you are when you are hit by any of these toxic events, the stronger their impact.

Not using baby bottles containing BPA is probably one easy, healthy and important way that women can help protect their daughters and granddaughters from developing breast cancer later in their lives.

To learn 7 other easy, inexpensive and healthy ways to protect your daughter and yourself from this unnecessary epidemic, see:  http://www.knowbreastcancer.net http://www.thetruthaboutbreastcancer.com

U. S. Breast Cancer Epidemic Hitting Young Moms and Other Women of Childbearing Age

In   2009, about 62,520 women of childbearing age in the United States were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.  This is a whopping 41% increase from 2001, when approximately 44, 300 women of childbearing age were reportedly diagnosed with the disease, according to recent American Cancer Society statistics.

These younger American women are being hit with triple negative, HER2 positive and estrogen positive breast cancers; diseases  that usually maim, sometimes kill and often bankrupt a woman’s current and future financial situation.

In recent years young media leaders and celebrities have shared their personal breast cancer diagnoses, including Fox News political reporter Jennifer Griffin (triple negative); ABC’s Good Morning America host,  Robin Roberts (triple negative); National Public Radio’s Tavis Smiley Show Executive Producer,  Sheryl Flowers, who died from triple negative breast cancer in 2009 at the age of 42, folksinger Melissa Ethridge (HER2 positive) and film star, Christina Applegate.

Why is this new epidemic happening to our younger women? How can younger women help stop breast cancer from happening to them ever… or never again?

Birth Control Pills Now Linked to Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Recent research out of Seattle  shows a disturbingly strong link between young  women (40 years and younger) who used oral contraceptives  and their tendency to develop triple negative breast cancer, a rapidly growing estrogen-negative type of the disease.

Among women (40 years and younger) the relative risk for triple-negative breast cancer associated with oral contraceptive use (of more than one year ) was 4.2. (95%confidence interval, 1.9-9.3)

This study, Risk Factors for Triple-Negative Breast Cancer in Women Under the Age of 45 Years,  involving over 1,000 women, led by Jessica M. Dolle, at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle,  and published in the academic journal, Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention in April of last year, did not find a similar link between   other kinds of  breast cancer and the use of oral contraceptives in this  same  group of breast cancer patients.

( one page abstract/summary of study)

http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/content/18/4/1157.abstract

( full study: ten page PDF)

http://www.jillstanek.com/Abortion%20Breast%20Cancer%20Epid%20Bio%20Prev%202009.pdf

Most types of breast cancer seem to be  caused by a  cocktail of various ingredients that appear to be unique to each person, that  mixed together can create  a perfect toxic storm.

Triple Negative breast cancer strikes  younger women more often than older women, and strikes black women at double the rate of white women. Younger black women are currently the most at- risk population for developing this type of breast cancer.

Sadly 90+%  of the dollars earmarked for  triple negative breast cancer research,  by Susan G Komen for the Cure, by  the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, by government and other private grant makers are only focused on developing  expensive drugs that can “find a cure”  for this disease.

Last week  a recent  market research report predicted that by 2018 a new breast cancer drug, BSI-201 will enjoy  $1.7 billion in worldwide sales, with special potential for the triple negative market.

http://www.drugstorenews.com/story.aspx?id=131607&menuid=345

For women fighting this disease, this is wonderful news as such drugs can be critical. But we also need  to figure out how to stop triple negative breast cancer before it starts... even if there is no $1.7 billion drug at the end of the rainbow.

Audre Lorde,  poet, lesbian, feminist leader,  African American and   author of The Cancer Journals, who  died  in 1992 after a fourteen-year struggle with breast cancer,   was one of the first to notice society’s interest in profit making, rather than in trying to stop  breast cancer before it starts.

…what would happen if an army of one-breasted women descended upon Congress and demanded that the use of carcinogenic, fat-stored hormones in beef-feed be outlawed?

Each year, about 30,000  women in the U.S.  are now being diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and this number continues to grow.  Most of these women are younger than 40 and more than 15% of these young women are  black.

We need to ask  foundations and government agencies to fund Jessica Dolle and other cancer prevention researchers as they try to  understand more about what chemicals, foods and drugs are causing all of this triple negative.

Meanwhile, do not expect your birth control pack  to mention Dolle’s recent research linking birth control drugs to triple negative breast cancer; in fact do not expect the American Cancer Society or even most major breast cancer foundations to breathe a word of  Dolle’s 2009 study.

Birth control pills and breast cancer drugs are both multi-billion dollar a year markets. The   pharmaceutical companies that sell these drugs also give many millions of dollars each year to the American Cancer Society, Komen and other.  Few organizations, I suppose,  want to bite the hands that feed them.

From a practical, personal  point of view, younger women who want to continue using birth control  pills should  counterbalance their risk of developing triple negative by getting a Vitamin D3 blood test.. and taking 2,000 IUs or more of Vitamin D3 supplements every day until your blood test shows you have a level of 60-80 ng/ml of vitamin D3. New research shows that this level of vitamin D3  should protect a huge majority of all women against developing all types of breast cancer.

Disagreeing with Teresa Heinz Kerry over mammograms for all

Dec 23, 2009

The number of women in the United States  newly diagnosed with invasive breast cancer is rising by 1% each year. It is with sadness therefore,  that I learned today that Teresa Heinz Kerry is now a part of that statistic.

Mrs. Heinz has been a long-standing  advocate for research that better understands environmental and lifestyle causes of breast cancer. Teresa Heinz, as an action-oriented philanthropist and policy maker,  is clearly a dear friend to all breast cancer prevention proponents.

But mammograms do not prevent breast cancer; so I reluctantly must disagree with Mrs. Heinz when she limits her remarks to say that  all women, no matter what their risk levels, should have an annual mammogram at age 40 and older.

This one and only one- size- fits- all recommendation seems inappropriate, given recent research and experience   on how  high vitamin D levels can  stop breast cancer from happening,  as well as  other known  breast cancer risk factors, not to mention  the well documented limits and sometimes dangers of annual screening mammograms.

To truly protect ourselves  from developing breast cancer,  all women,  young and old,  need to  follow a real prevention lifestyle.. not just go running to get a mammogram!

For example:

  • If you are past 40 have you found alternatives to contraceptive drugs or hormone replacement drugs ?
  • Have you had a vitamin D3 blood test yet? Are you taking enough vitamin D3 supplements every day to keep your blood serum levels at  60 ng/ml?
  • Are you filtering the water that you drink and shower with every day?
  • Are you able to  limit your alcohol intake to  three glasses of wine or beer a week?

Research shows that no one habit or drug is  going to cause breast cancer; instead breast cancer seems to happen when a mixture of such individualized risk factors comes together into a personalized toxic cocktail.

Each of us needs to understand this range of factors as we work to keep our own breast cancer risk level low.

Focusing only on getting an annual mammogram, instead of  also encouraging women to seriously follow a real prevention lifestyle, will never lower the number of women who develop breast cancer.

Best Kept Secret: Cows' Milk increases risk for breast cancer

May 25, 2009

\In my May 29th Honest Health column on the need to ban rBGH and other growth hormones from our food supply  www.gloucestertimes.com  I describe known links between drinking milk from cows treated with rBGH and eating meat and poultry containing added growth hormones with the increased risk of developing breast, prostate and other hormonal cancers.

 

What I don’t say is that cows milk by itself, is considered to be a major risk factor in breast and ovarian cancer. It appears that when individuals do not have the correct enzymes to metabolize many of the hormones naturally found in any type of cow’s milk., a glass of milk can flood the body with excess estrogen. This raises the risk of developing or accelerating the growth of existing breast cancer.

 

Jane Plant, a British geologist, describes saving her own life twenty years ago after facing metastatic breast cancer. An estrogen positive tumor, growing in her neck, disappeared in six weeks once Plant , currently a professor at the University of Nottingham,  began a  dairy-free lifestyle. She has continued to follow a dairy free lifestyle since that time and has remained cancer free to this day.

 

Plant’s book,  The No-Dairy Breast Cancer Prevention Program,   http://www.amazon.com/No-Dairy-Breast-Cancer-Prevention-Program/dp/0312291671

 also published under the title, Your Life in Your Own Hands: Understanding. Preventing and Overcoming Breast Cancer,  http://www.amazon.com/Your-Life-Hands-Understanding-Preventing/dp/0312275617   are both available from Amazon and other booksellers.

 

One  possible reason most people have not read much about the connections between dairy products and an increased risk of breast cancer may be because the U.S. Dairy Lobby is formidable. The industry  is able to maintain federal milk subsidies in spite of the fact that this policy artificially raises  milk prices for  U.S. consumers, tot the  benefit of milk producers.

 

The Industry’s popular Got Milk? Campaign reflects a motherhood and apple pie feeling by including former federal cabinet members (Donna Shlala) , movie starts (Jennifer Aniston) and sport heroes. (Muhammad Ali).  No wonder it is difficult to believe the research that shows how milk can increase breast cancer rates and accelerate breast cancer growth in a huge group of women.

 

See Andrew Weil’s comments on the strong links between dairy and hormonal cancers.  http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/id/QAA400175

Arimidex & Atrazine: Money money money

February 9, 2009

Each month, the Collaborative on Health and the Environment or CHE, sponsors a conference call for members. As the director of  Know Breast Cancer, I am able to stay up- to -date on new research that continues to link our high U.S. breast cancer rates to many things in our environment.  Now it appears we  really need to wonder what  National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is  all about when October rolls around again. 

Dr Tyrone Hayes was the guest speaker on  last month’s conference call. He had a few things to say about the pharmaceutical company Astra Zeneca, the original manufacturer of Tamoxifen;  the same company that now brings us Arimidex. This is not a pretty story. 

Astra Zeneca, the corporate founder, and editor of  National Breast Cancer Awareness Month  has no moral conscience.. just money on their minds.

Astra Zeneca co-owns Syngenta, the company that manufactures Atrazine.  This popular pesticide acts as a chemical estrogen or aromatase enhancer,  and pollutes rain water, rivers and produce  across the United States.  Many laboratory studies have shown that Atrazine, now banned in Europe, increases the risk of prostate, breast and ovarian cancers in lab animals and in humans.

Astra Zeneca also manufactures Arimidex, one of the aromatase inhibitor drugs, used to protect individuals against a recurrence of estrogen positive breast cancer. Arimidex works by blocking  aromatase or future estrogen levels in the body.

This means that women who eat produce and grains and drink water tainted by Astra Zeneca’s Atrazine pesticide, increase their risk of developing breast cancer. But now women  can also  purchase Astra Zeneca’s Arimidex, to help them survive, once they actually develop estrogen positive breast cancer. 

How do these corporate fathers and mothers of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month sleep at night come October,  when  it is time to bring out the pink ribbons?

Dr Tyrone Hayes, an award-winning tenured professor of biology at the University of California at Berkeley discovered  Atrazine’s adverse hormonal effects on laboratory animals  while working for Astra Zeneca as a research consultant. Hayes has now named Astra Zeneca a one-stop shopping experience. See his website www.atrazinelovers.com

Water Filters: One of Many Ways to Reduce Your Current Breast Cancer Risk Level

February 1, 2009

Do you know that  much of our tap water  and well water is polluted  with animal and human estrogen and other hormones… thanks to millions of women using contraceptive drugs, estrogen replacement drugs and fertility pills?   

Thanks to folks eating  animal growth hormones in most beef, chicken and milk these days.

Thanks  to Atrazine, the #2 most popular pesticide that pollutes our rivers and  rainwater.

A recent study by Silent Spring Institute (www.silentspring.org) shows that septic systems are not able to filter out all of those estrogens from our sewage.

The Silent Spring study helps us understand why many of us now must drink a hormone soup from our tap each day, pushing up our breast cancer risk level with each sip. (Pun not intended!) 

All of these natural and artificial hormones end up in our tap water and then in our bodies. This extra estrogen in our bodies, sometimes helps to create breast cancer. What goes round, comes round.

Meanwhile we also need to take chlorine , OUT of our drinking water and OUT of our shower! The combo of hot chlorinated water hitting a vinyl shower curtain and then us breathing in this steaming mixture of chemical hormones while enclosed in a wet cocoon in not a healthy picture!

Chlorine may be important when it comes to killing off nasty bugs in our municipal water supply; but we do not need to drink or breathe it too, thank you very much!

Today a water filter for the kitchen sink and one for the shower need to be basic home equipment, right along side indoor plumbing and a fridge.

There are many water filters on the market today. So it is important to get educated when you are ready to buy a filter for your home water supply, or for your kitchen sink or for your shower and bath tub taps.

In searching the internet for such a basic education on water filters, I happily discovered Tim Hickey out in Nevada City California. A Boston transplant, Tim takes his water filters seriously . His website www.friendsofwater.com   can also be called water filters 101.  So take your time when it is time to get ready to buy a decent home water filter system or just a filter for your kitchen tap or shower head. 

 Tim will also consult with you for free and ship you whatever economical filter meets your needs. Anti-chlorine & anti-hormone?  or just anti-fluoride or a customized combo?

Tim recently also agreed to become one of Know Breast Cancer’s first Prevention Products Companies. This means that you can go to www.knowbreastcancer.net/products.html and find a link to Tim’s website, along with a few other of our pioneering prevention products companies.

In the coming days and weeks, you will see us adding many more prevention product company links to our website.  We are now out on the net everyday, looking for companies that offer multiple types of products that can help keep a person’s estrogen levels low low low… thus reducing the risk of developing breast cancer. 

From water filters, to organic citrus, to paraben-free eye cream and lead free lipsticks, to glass refrigerator storage containers, to no-wire underwire bras and wild yam supplements to keep your hormones balanced, our prevention products pages will make it fun and pretty easy for  you to start living a better -safe -than -sorry lifesyle today!

Our Prevention Products Pages can  help you easily  find wonderful prevention products companies,  help  these companies  enjoy  increased sales of  their good stuff, and help Know Breast Cancer increase our contributions from happy site visitors and happy companies.  This should be a win- win situation.

Back to water filters…. and understanding all of the environmental causes/connections to breast cancer:

1st download a free copy of the Breast Cancer Fund’s 2008 State of the Evidence Report, “The Connection Between Breast Cancer and the Environment” at www.breastcancerfund.org to understand what is polluting our drinking water.

Or just contact  Tim and figure out what type of water filter you need, and enjoy decades of healthy water from www.friendsofwater.com
