Thomas Seyfried: Cancer can only develop in an acid body; cancer prevention is possible

 

Thomas Seyfried is an  award-winning biologist at Boston College. But I think he  needs to change his name.

He name should really be David, because  his new book stands up to  Goliath.. that booming multi-billion dollar cancer treatment industry.  Seyfried’s book, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease,  clearly says to our current cancer establishment: You  do not understand what is causing most cancer . Your theory underlying your treatment protocols are also wrong.  Cancer is not a genetic disease. No wonder death rates from metastatic breast cancer and other cancers have not changed in the past thirty years. Your research is looking down the wrong tunnel.

Sadly, our leading cancer centers and mainstream oncologists across the U.S. have invested so much money in their genetic theory of cancer, that they can’t turn back now. So they continue to tell us:
We really don’t know what  causes breast cancers; but when you develop this disease,  we are ready to offer you treatment…. that may or may not cure this  disease of unknown origins. 

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/417W6XsT9OL._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_.jpg

Seyfried’s thesis is based on the Warburg Effect, a  theory of cancer awarded a Nobel Prize in 1931. Simply said, this metabolic theory of cancer shows how developing an inflamed acidic body  can gum up cell membranes,  causing them to stop breathing in enough oxygen to stay healthy.

To survive,  these gasping cells  morph into mindless anaerobic cells that begin to ferment. Now they no longer need oxygen to survive. Just like a compost heap, these cells  need an acid environment (think  glucose, sugar,  inflammation from chemical & animal  hormones & chronic stress)  to survive, thrive and  duplicate themselves mindlessly.   Presto…. tumors can now begin to form.

Instead of adopting Warburg’s metabolic theory,  the western main stream medical profession has chosen to believe in another  theory of  the cause of cancer…something called  the mutation theory.  So now we often hear doctors say:

“Gee we just don’t know exactly what has caused your healthy breast cells to spontaneously mutate and become  breast cancer cells. But we can try to  get rid of all of  those cells using surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy.  Hopefully our treatment will cure you of  this disease of unknown origins.”

An MD by the name of Georgia Ede,  who is also the  new psychiatrist at Smith College, heard Tom Seyfried describe the concept of cancer as a metabolic disease this past August.

Dr Ede has now done a great job of translating Seyfreid’s and Warburg’s  theories on the main cause of cancer  into  language that most of us should be able to follow pretty well.

To understand more about cancer as a metabolic disease, I recommend you read  Ede’s 4 part article.

Meanwhile, if you are trying to find ways to stop breast cancer before it can start, it is important to at least find out  if your body is currently acidic or alkaline.

Cancer, it turns out, is unable to grow in an alkaline environment!

Go buy a  package of pH strips and measure your first and second urine of the morning… or your saliva.  If you are measuring  anywhere between 6.5-8.0 …congratulations!!! You are doing something right.

A pH reading of 7.2 is the ideal.

If the pH strip measures lower than 6.5 most of the time,  your body is acidic. This means your body could be  fertile ground for cancer cells to thrive unless you start adding  much more alkaline foods ( greens,  avocados, sprouts, cucumbers)  and less acidic  foods (sugar based foods, white rice,  white bread, dead meat, dairy, coffee, alcohol, diet and sugar sodas) …to your daily diet.

Try reading Acid Alkaline Diet for Dummies and see if you can  change your diet enough for your urine or saliva to start measuring  between 6.5 and 8.0  on the pH scale at any point during the day.

Also check out this video on measuring your pH   and various other ways to make your body alkaline.

Good Luck everybody!!!

The Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Book; authors not interested in prevention

Stopping Breast Cancer Before it Starts is Not Their Job

Women are the only group with the self-interest and power to prevent most breast cancer

You might think the authors of The Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Book, each a clinician and senior professor in the field of breast cancer research, would offer readers the most up-to-date information on how to prevent breast cancer from happening.

 

But… you would be wrong.

 

Instead, the new book devotes only 12 out of 412 pages to educating women on the importance of prevention. Here are the book’s  major recommendations:

  • Have doctors remove your ovaries & breasts
  • Take folate supplements if you drink alcohol
  • Exercise

Sadly, the authors have ignored more than twenty years of research that now provides us a long list of specific known and probable causes and subsequent lifestyle changes that can significantly reduce a woman’s breast cancer risk.  Here are three choices that are natural, safe, healthy, simple and inexpensive.

  • Use hormone-free IUDs or have a tubal ligation so you can avoid taking birth control drugs.     WHY? The progestin in all contraceptive drugs can initiate breast cancer and exponentially accelerate the growth of tumor cells.
  • Use safe year- round tanning and/or D3 supplements to raise your vitamin D3 blood serum levels above 50 ng./ml.   WHY?  This level of D3 enables your healthy breast cells to destroy any mutated cells.

Like most breast “health” books and breast cancer “awareness” organizations, The Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Book  appears intently focused on diagnosing the disease: (think… “Are you sick yet?”) and on treating the disease (think…” Let us help you!’).

Yes… these are important tasks; they are also the profit-making end of our national breast cancer industry.

Sadly, The Mayo Clinic, like most other non-profit and for-profit cancer centers in the U.S. , remains strictly focused on the bottom line.  Helping women stay healthy is not a profitable undertaking. Stopping the disease from happening in the first place is apparently not their job.

Meanwhile, an increasing percentage of U.S. women,  of all ages, and those under 45,  are  being diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.

  • A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found a 2% annual increase over the past three decades in late-stage metastatic breast cancer in women under 40 years, using 8 % to 18 % population samples, created by the National Cancer Institute.
  •  American Cancer Society estimates show an 11.8 % annual increase since 2007 in new cases of invasive breast cancer in women under 45 years old.
  • Between 2006 and 2009,  an average of 22,500 women , under 45 years old, were diagnosed each year  with invasive breast cancer,  according to state -based data from 99% of the U.S. population, as reported by the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR).

Why is  more breast cancer happening to our younger women, than ever before?

Who is helping women learn how to stop breast cancer before it can start?

How can we turn off this faucet of more and more breast cancer?

 

 

The Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Book ignores these three questions. Instead, the Clinic’s book, published in 2012,  is a dramatic example of why women cannot depend on the Mayo Clinic,  or virtually any cancer center or breast health center (aka mammogram clinic),  to be up-to-date on how individuals can stop breast cancer before it starts. (mammograms may detect; they certainly do not prevent.)

We  need to realize that given our current for-profit sick-care system, individual women are the only group in the United States today,  that has both the self interest and the power to actually stop most breast cancer before it starts.

Put these three books on your reading list today if you are serious about lowering your breast cancer risk:

Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps Ebook Series –Volume 1.. Birth Control Drugs by Susan Wadia-Ells PhD

This short $3.99 ebook encourages women to try a hormone-free IUD or have a tubal ligation as alternatives to birth control drugs. The book also discusses natural ways to balance hormones if you now use birth control drugs for skin, menstrual or other hormone-related issues. Finally this small ebook offers a good summary of the most important  studies linking birth control drug use to breast cancer, including Josef Penniger’s recent and startling  research on how progestin drugs ( think all birth control drugs, some HRT drugs and some fertility drugs) exponentially increase a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer. This is the only book like it on the subject.

 

The Vitamin D3 Solution:  A 3 Step Solution to our Most Common Health Problem, by Michael Holick, MD, PhD

More and more research shows that most women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer have vitamin D3 levels under 50 ng/ml, while women with D3 blood levels over 50 ng/ml are rarely diagnosed with the disease. Dr Michael Holick’s book describes how using safe levels of indoor and outdoor tanning can offer most people enough UVB rays to make their own vitamin D3. Holick also helps readers choose appropriate levels of D3 supplements, with or without tanning, to raise your blood level up to that protective 50-80 ng/ml level.  This is the only book like it on this subject.

 

The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now! by Mark Hyman, MD

Numerous studies show how cancer busting  foods we eat everyday can balance hormones, lower inflammation,  and thus block breast tumors from happening.

·        avoid dairy products with added hormones or switch to a dairy-free diet

·        increase your intake of cruciferous vegetables and omega 3 fatty acids

·        avoid high amounts of  sugar from high glycemic foods

·        drink chlorine-free filtered water

Anti-Cancer, by the late David Servan-Schreiber MD, a 20 year cancer survivor, was the first best seller in this field. Now Mark Hyman MD, a functional or prevention-oriented physician,  has just published an up-to-date best seller on this critical subject of cancer-blocking foods.

Now Go Read!!!!

 

 

Why is Breast Cancer Increasing in Younger Women?

You probably won’t like this answer

Manchester by the Sea, MA: All sorts of statistics are confirming growing suspicions that invasive breast cancer is increasing among American women of child bearing age.

Seattle-based physician and breast cancer survivor, Rebecca Johnson, wondered what was up when,  at 27 years old, she was diagnosed with the disease.

“…and after that, I’d meet young women patients with breast cancer and it seemed like a lot of friends of friends had breast cancer. And yet the literature kept saying that breast cancer in younger women was rare.” said Johnson, a pediatric cancer specialist at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Johnson’s recent statistical study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, based on small samples of the U.S. population (9.5% – 28%) from 1976 to 2009, estimates  there has been an average annual increase of 2.07% in highly advanced or “distant” invasive breast cancer incidence in women under 40, during the past   three decades.

“Given there’s such a change over a short amount of time, we may find modifiable risk factors or potentially toxic exposures that are fueling this increase,” said Johnson.

A second estimate, compiled from state cancer board data, based on 85%-86% of the U.S. population, as reported by the American Cancer Society,  and published in volume 1 of the new ebook series, Busting Breast Cancer,  shows that invasive breast tumors, in women under 45 years old,  increased by 11.8% a year between 2007 and 2011.

“It appears that American women of child bearing age are facing an epidemic- like increase in invasive breast tumors,” said Dr. Susan Wadia-Ells, PhD, founding director of the National Breast Cancer Prevention Project, a small non profit that translates international research on the known, probable and possible causes of breast cancer into lifestyle changes that women can adopt, to help lower their breast cancer risk.

Wadia-Ells, author of the new Busting Breast Cancer Series, is also willing to talk about birth control drugs as a significant cause behind these emerging numbers.

“I know it is politically incorrect right now to criticize birth control drugs, while Republican lawmakers and the Catholic Church continue to try and limit a woman’s right to receive  contraceptive insurance coverage or choose  a legal abortion,” said Wadia-Ells.  But this outspoken  prevention advocate believes the progestin chemicals found in all birth control drugs are a significant cause of the uptick in invasive breast cancer among younger women.

In her new ebook, Wadia-Ells  points to dozens of epidemiological studies, along with a 2010 lab study led by Austrian geneticist, Josef Penninger, showing how chemical progestin in contraceptive drugs activates the RANKL protein in breast cells, causing or accelerating tumor growth.

“Ten years ago we formulated the hypothesis that RANKL might be involved in breast cancer and it took us a long time to develop a system to prove this idea… I have to admit it completely surprised me just how massive the effects of the system were. Millions of women take progesterone derivatives in contraceptives and hormonal replacement therapy,” Penninger said, after winning a $7.4 million Innovator Award from the Department of Defense’s Breast Cancer Research Program last October, for identifying a key molecular pathway showing how hormone replacement therapies and contraceptive pills can lead to breast cancer.

Wadia-Ells recommends that American women follow the example of  European and Chinese women, and choose safer and more effective contraceptive methods such as hormone-free IUDs or tubal ligation.

World Cancer Day: Birth Control Drugs increase breast cancer to epidemic-like level

Monday. Feb 4, 2013 is  the UN’s World Cancer Day;  time to break the myth that breast cancer is only an older woman’s disease.

Today, breast cancer is  increasing by 11.8 % a year in American women under 45 years old. This, according to the American Cancer Society’s official data, as calculated by  the National Breast Cancer Prevention Project/Busting Breast Cancer.

Busting Breast Cancer: Volume 1 Birth Control Drugs: Learn the Terrible Truth (Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps Ebook Series)

 

 

In the  recent book, Birth Control Drugs: Learn the Terrible Truth, Volume 1 in the Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps Ebook Series, Susan Wadia-Ells describes the arithmetic behind this startling 11.8% annual increase in invasive breast cancer by using the Cancer Society’s official data, as reported in their biennial reports, Breast Cancer Facts and Figures for 2007;for 2009 and for 2011.

As a  feminist and pro choice activist, Wadia-Ells is  upset to find that one of the  major causes behind this unprecedented surge in invasive breast cancer, among our premenopausal women, appears to be American women’s dependence on birth control drugs.

The newest research that points the finger at the synthetic progestin hormone, found in every birth control drug on the market today, is also included in this  short, but powerful book:

Birth Control Drugs: Learn the Terrible Truth,

  • Why the hormone-free IUD, by the name of ParaGard, is the safest and most effective reversible birth control method available today on the U.S. contraceptive market.
  • Why and how the progestin in all of our birth control drugs  increases breast cancer risk.

Birth Control Drugs: Learn the Terrible Truth

Birth Control Drugs: Learn the Terrible Truth

Why did an Austrian medical researcher receive a $7.4 million “Innovator’s Award” last month from the U.S. Government?

Because the good doctor recently discovered exactly why birth control drugs and hormone replacement drugs increase a woman’s risk of developing invasive breast cancer while a woman is using either type drug.

Austrian geneticist, Josef Penninger, finally hit the nail on the head. His new research shows that progestin (a chemical found in all contraceptive drugs and  some hormone replacement drugs),   activates a protein called RANKL, which actually causes breast cancer cells to multiply rapidly.

Listen to what Dr. Penninger has to say about his discovery.

Ten years ago we formulated the hypothesis that RANKL might be involved in breast cancer and it took us a long time to develop a system to prove this idea, …I have to admit it completely surprised me just how massive the effects of the system were. Millions of women take progesterone derivatives in contraceptives and for hormonal replacement therapy.”

The new ebook, Busting Breast Cancer: Birth Control Drugs  includes this breaking news, along with never-before-published government statistics on the double digit annual increase in invasive breast cancer rates among  U.S. women of childbearing age.

Don’t miss Birth Control Drugs: Learn the Terrible Truth: Volume 1 of the  Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps Ebook Series, by Busting Breast Cancer’s founding director, Susan Wadia-Ells…available next week on Kindle and in early December on Nook and iPads.     ——————————————————

U.S. women, under 45, slammed with high breast cancer rates; are fertility drugs involved?

U.S.women, under 45 years old,  have  experienced a 12 percent annual increase in invasive breast cancer since 2007.

Busting Breast Cancer recently uncovered this epidemic-like trend using state-based data collected by the North American Association of National Cancer Registries and published bi-annually by the American Cancer Society.

Many women already know that breast cancer has become a younger woman’s disease, but few understand some of the most probable causes or risk factors behind this startlingly trend.

Contraceptive drug use in the U.S. has grown rapidly since 1997, with over 13 million teens and women under 50, now using some type of hormone contraceptive drug. In addition,  85,000 women in the U.S. used fertility drugs last year, an all time high.  Market researchers estimate six million or more U.S. women will have used one or more fertility drug by 2025.

Increasing numbers of international studies show that the chemical estrogens and chemical progestins in these drugs increase cell proliferation and other risky conditions with regard to breast cancer.

How many younger women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer since 2007 were using hormone contraceptive drugs or had recently used some type of hormone fertility drugs? No government agency tracks this data.

We also know that increasing profits are being made each year,  as more  women use these chemical hormones.  The U.S. contraceptive drug market is currently worth $3.8 billion;  U.S. fertility clinics enjoy another $4.4 billion each year.

A lone voice at the National Cancer Institute recently recommended the federal government spend serious dollars studying which fertility drugs might be increasing invasive breast cancer rates. Is it the synthetic estrogens in some of the IVF (in vitro fertilization) drugs? Is it the progestin drugs, such as Elizabeth Edwards used,  to carry her youngest two children to full term?

Additional studies are needed to clarify the effects on cancer risk of fertility drugs, especially those used in conjunction with in vitro fertilization, said Louise Brinton, Chief of the Hormonal and Reproductive Epidemiology Branch at NCI, co-author of an article on fertility drugs and breast cancer, to be published in June in Seminars in Reproductive Medicine.

Have you been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer after using fertility drugs? Please send us your story.

Are you an oncology nurse, who is noticing more and more patients have used fertility drugs? Please send us your story.

Let’s share our knowledge. Let’s support Louise Brinton as she advocates for a national study on fertility drugs and invasive breast cancer. We must find every possible way to reverse this epidemic-like trend of invasive breast cancer in our younger women.
