Busting Breast Cancer North of Boston

How can a lone woman help stop breast cancer before it starts?

1. MEMORIZE your Vitamin D3 (sunshine vitamin) blood level! The magic number to help stop breast cancer tumors from forming is  60/80 ng/ml.

Don’t assume your doctor knows  the latest research on how vitamin D3 can  stop breast cancer before it starts.

2. EAT low hormone foods EVERY DAY

Think miso soup, tempeh and other fermented organic soy products; Think organic milk (no rBGH) and drink/eat  very little  dairy no matter what; think smart chickens,  fed no hormones or antibiotics .

3. STOP using birth control DRUGS, especially if you are over 40.

All recent research indicates that birth control drugs are  increasing the rate of breast cancers in younger women across the U.S. . Using an  IUD  or having your tubes tied is safer, more effective and less expensive.

Last week , The National Breast Cancer Prevention Project/Know Breast Cancer launched our first Busting Breast Cancer Initiative on Boston’s North Shore, at the gorgeous Rockport Art Association –  donated  for the event.

Here is the slide that got the most attention!

 

 

 

What are the reaons for this reality?  Here’s what Lisa Vincent, Busting Breast Cancer’s  team leader in Rockport had to say:

Massachusetts has the 5th highest breast cancer rate of all 50 states.

Essex County (north of Boston) has the 3rd highest rate in the state.

Since breast cancer is rarely caused by one event or a single long-term toxic exposure, here are some logical possibilities:

1.Essex County is one of the highest income areas in the state.. and more money allows you to:

  • hire more professional cleaners for your house, car and gardens , probably using toxic chemicals;
  • go to a doctor who may recommend using birth control drugs and HRT drugs for many reasons;
  • have annual mammograms before and after menopause. Research shows that radiation, at any level is a cumulative carcinogen, especially if you are younger than 50 (pre menopausal)

2. Essex County uses  shallow municipal water sources  where chlorine, combined with with twigs and other organic matter, create chemical hormones that you injest or absorb when bathing, cooking and drinking.

3.  Essex County is in the cold north eastern section of the U.S. .  From    October through May,   weak sunshine during these eight months keeps average vitamin D3 blood levels low.

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.
