No Need for Women to Amputate Their Breasts if Have Mutated BRCA Cancer Gene!!

  • Avoid most sugar-based food and beverages  each day and make sure your body remains  alkaline most of the day by drinking green smoothies
  • Raise your vitamin D3 blood level to 50-80 ng/ml with safe year-round tanning and D3 supplements and keep Vit D3  at this level year- round
  • Have a radiation-free thermogram each year, no matter what your age, to find out if your breasts are inflamed or if your lymph system within your breasts is clogged; If inflammation is found, then  lose weight, move to an alkaline diet and dry brush your skin to change this pre-cancerous situation
  • Always choose  a hormone-free IUD or have a tubal ligation instead of using birth control drugs that contain  the breast cancer causing progestin chemical hormone

These are four critical, significant, healthy  and inexpensive lifestyle changes  a woman can choose to  adopt if she wants to help stop breast cancer before it starts.

These and many other healthy, inexpensive  lifestyle changes can ratchet down all women’s risks of developing breast cancer… even women born with a defective cell repair gene (BRCA1) .

A  recent  New York Times article describes how women in Israel are being tested for the “breast cancer gene”….. and then left in a quandry about what to do, it they test positive.

Being born with one of these defective genes can  increase a woman’s life time risk of developing  breast cancer…BUT only if she then  refuses to make  any or all of these or other  simple lifestyle changes.

The international research exists. It shows us what is causing all of this breast cancer in women in Israel, in the United States and around the world.

This same research also shows us that there are simple, yet significant ways that all women can stop this invasive disease before it starts, even women identified as carrying a broken cancer-fixing gene.

The problem with these lifestyle changes…

Nowhere in the Times article was there mention of  any of these  lifestyle change that can significantly help stop breast cancer before it starts.

Why not?

These  lifestyle changes  don’t offer any income  to cancer centers, surgeons, radiography clinics, genetic testing companies, and others who now profit from the growing numbers of  younger and older women who are pushed into having their healthy breasts amputated.

Also… these cancer centers  continue to believe that cancer is a genetic disease... not a metabolic disease. This means that most  mainstream oncologists and breast surgeons continue to tell women  they don’t understand why a woman has developed breast cancer. Therefore these same medical practitioners also believe it  difficult to impossible to stop breast cancer before it starts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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.

Birth Control Drugs = More Breast Cancer
Busting Breast Cancer does the Arithmetic

New data shows birth control drugs are a probable cause of  the12% annual increase in invasive breast cancer now happening among  younger U.S. women
breast cancer rates chart
(c) busting breast cancer  

 

 Using published federal data, Busting Breast Cancer has calculated that breast cancer is increasing by 12 percent a year among women 45 and younger. Older women, 65 and older,  now face a six percent annual  increase.

 U.S. women use 47.5 percent of all birth control drugs sold around the world. But this group makes up only 4.5 percent of the world’s childbearing population, according to Busting Breast Cancer data.

“Each young woman needs to do the arithmetic. Then we need to understand why many more European and most  Asian women choose a hormone-free IUD or  tubal ligation, over today’s problematic synthetic progestin-based birth control drugs,” said Susan Wadia-Ells, founding director of Busting Breast Cancer and author of the forthcoming book,

Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps to Protect our Daughters from this unnecessary disease.  

Dozens of research studies now indicate that  the $3.8 billion U.S. contraceptive drug market  is a probable cause of the increasing incidence of invasive breast cancer among U.S. women of childbearing age.
“Women are the only group in the U.S. today who have the self interest and the power to lower these unacceptable and historically high cancer rates,” said Wadia-Ells.
“You find people less wanting to think about birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy and fertility drugs than about pesticides, bras and deodorants….”

Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History

Progestin: An Unnatural Hormone

Women of childbearing age in Colorado, Florida and Massachusetts,   now face the same invasive breast cancer rates that women of all ages faced in the 1960’s, according to  state cancer board data.

What is pushing up (pun noticed)  breast cancer among younger women in the U.S.?  One of the causes just might be  fake progesterone… called progestin, that lurks in  every birth control drug and in the popular Mirena IUD.

….with birth control drugs now commanding a $3.8 billion a year market in the U.S. alone, watch for lots of push back when this subject is  mentioned.

About Us

Thankfully, Dr. Susan Love  and her Army of Women,  is finally going to study the progestin- in- birth- control- drug situation. Are these drugs worth taking to prevent pregnancy. .. or is there a safer and more effective way?

In her  good natured and far-reaching book,  Breasts:a natural and unnatural history, science writer, Florence Williams,   introduces us to the lively  South African researcher,Malcolm Pike, who discovered back in 1983, that unnatural  progestin was as risky or more risky than unnatural estrogen when it came to popping hormone drugs and worrying about breast cancer.

Women should never forget, it was those unnatural progestins  in the combo hormone replacement therapy (HRT)  pill  that  older women were told to take, that pushed up their  their breast cancer risk by 26%.

It took a $625 million national study, let by a woman physician, Bernadine Healey, to finally convince the public in 2002, that HRT was a bad idea.

In one year,  this $4 billion a year U.S. HRT drug market collapsed in half and for a few short years, post menopausal women  saw their hormone-positive breast cancer rates dive by 15%.

Now lots of research is  again pointing to unnatural progestins as a significant  culprit ,  as more and more  women of childbearing age,  using all  types of  hormonal birth control, reach a tipping point,  and end up with invasive breast cancer.

We need to thank Malcoln Pike, Bernadine Healey, Susan Love,  and now Florence Williams,  for their past, recent and future research and  writing  that encourages women to question this problematic and unnatural hormone.

 

Coming Up:  War on Women

Hormone-free IUDs are  safer and more effective than any hormone drug or hormone IUD.

But why does this IUD cost $1, 000 in the U.S. and $1.00 in the U.K.?

 

 

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.

Jane Stephens, breast cancer warrior, and volunteer for the Essex County Busting Breast Cancer Initiative stands beside the Charles Movalli original oil painting donated in honor of Carleen Muniz (1947-2009).  Movalli’s painting is valued at 6k by most galleries.
 
 

Raffle Tickets are $25@,  available online until October 23rd – when the grand prize drawing will take place at  NBCPP’s  Know Breast Cancer Month Reception, Sunday October 23rd from 3pm – 6pm, at the John Archer Estate in Danvers, MA  at 2 pm, featuring the Honky Tonk Women

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.

American Cancer Society Report is Misleading; younger women getting more triple negative, estrogen positive & HER2+ breast cancers

Women of childbearing age, in many states around the U.S. today, face historically high invasive breast cancer levels. The American Cancer Society’s (ACS’) recent study, published Feb 22, in the American Association for Cancer Research, is incorrect when it says breast cancer rates are not changing for younger women.

In Massachusetts, younger women (under 50), saw a 45% increase in invasive breast cancer between 1995-2007; younger women in Colorado saw a 27% increase between 1990-2008, and younger women in Florida saw a 40% increase between 1984-2008.

The American Cancer Society’s February, 2011 report doesn’t count the actual number of women diagnosed in each state; instead, it uses an estimate, based on a formula, based on 9% of the U.S. population.

To know the real story, we need to count every woman who is affected, and we need to have those numbers published for all of us to see and understand.

Contact you state cancer board and ask them how many younger women developed invasive breast cancers last year, compared to the past five or ten years. Also ask them, how many of these younger women were diagnosed with triple negative, HER2+ and estrogen receptor positive breast cancers.

We need this specific information, not estimates. Keeping women in the dark when it comes to these critical numbers, makes it impossible to measure any positive changes, as women try easy and healthy ways to stop breast cancer before it starts.
