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.

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.

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.

To learn more, order Birth Control Drugs : Learn the Terrible Truth Volume 1, in the Busting Breast Cancer Ebook Series,   for Kindle, Nook , Sony Readers and iPad   $3.99 … or ask your library to acquire it.

Bain Executive Blocks U.S. Women Access to Safe Birth Control

 

 IUDs are the most effective & safest birth control choice for teens and younger women, according to a recent report from the   American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, while a new national family planning study shows that when offered free contraception, IUDs are the top choice for 18-20 year olds.

But thanks to a Bain Capital Executive’s buy-out move  in 2003, the simple plastic hormone-free ParaGard IUD went from wearing a $15 price tag in 2000 to costing a whopping $754 today; forcing  many uninsured women to use less safe,  but more profitable,  birth control drugs while inflating health care costs for government and private insurers.

Back in 2003, Fred Studier, a 17 year employee and partner in Bain’s healthcare and private equity practices, bought up ParaGard’s marketing, manufacturing and distribution contracts, merging them into a new company,   FEI Women’s Health.  Using a questionable 1999 FDA ruling that reclassified this lone 30 year old medical device into a pharmaceutical drug, Studier’s new U.S. monopoly, raised the price of the tiny plastic T to $200, a 1, 233 percent  price increase.

IUDs remain more popular in Europe, where women enjoy dozens of sizes and models to choose from, with price tags of $60 or less. But the prohibitive costs of any 10 year FDA-approved study, required of new IUDs (think drugs), keep competitive IUDs off the U.S. market.

Hormone-free IUDs are not drugs. Women need to urge the FDA to reclassify them back to medical devices.

This subject is discussed in the forthcoming ebook,  The Terrible Truth about Birth Control Drugs and the need for safe affordable IUDs, available later this month on Kindle, Nook, I-Pad and other e-readers. This is the first volume in the Busting Breast Cancer: Seven Simple Steps ebook series, by Busting Breast Cancer’s founding director, Susan Wadia-Ells.
