Bernie Sanders’ 1992 Cancer Registry Law: How much is breast cancer increasing in U.S. today?

The first piece of legislation that then- freshman Congressman Bernie Sanders drafted and  successfully passed, was The 1992 Cancer Registries Amendment Act.

But Bernie’s  law has not yet been implemented, thanks to 23 years of successful  stonewalling by the National Cancer Institute and  the Centers for Disease Control.

Sanders’ much-needed federal law  creates a uniform state-based  cancer  reporting system that includes all 50 state, the District of Columbia and   U.S. Territories, along with a centralized data bank within the federal Centers for Disease Control. The Sanders’ Registry can tell us how much breast cancer is increasing each year in younger women, for example,  and which age groups have the highest rates of breast cancer.  This is important information for those of us who want to find ways to stop breast cancer before it starts.

Why are our  federal cancer agencies continuing to block the U.S. public from knowing the extent of our current breast cancer epidemic?

Without Bernie’s  central cancer data bank, the U.S. public cannot track  how much breast cancer is increasing within different age groups or ethnic groups  and/or within different sections of the country throughout the U.S.   This is a ridiculous and unacceptable  situation.

Without such a central data base that the Sanders Law requires, the U.S. public continues to remain in the dark about our ongoing  breast cancer  epidemic

U.S. Breast Cancer Statistics 2015

The National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and many Big Pharma- sponsored breast cancer foundations. including the American Cancer Society and Susan G Komen for the Cure  want us to believe that breast cancer is a static situation. Each year they tell us the same thing: “One out of every 8 U.S. women can expect to develop breast cancer in her lifetime.”

This is a  fear-mongering and no-help  statistic. This is similar to saying the U.S. has an  annual programmed breast cancer hurricane and 260,000 women will again end up diagnosed with breast cancer by the end of the year… year after year.

Without knowing the  actual  number of women in the U.S. diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year,  compared to last year and the year before that,  it is also difficult for Busting Breast Cancer and other prevention organizations to show how our programs or recommended lifestyle changes are able to change our current breast cancer statistics!

Fully implementing Bernie Sanders’ 1992 Cancer Registries Amendment Law will give us the standardized up-to-date national data we need to help stop breast  cancer before it starts.

Please contact your congressman/congresswoman and senators today.  Congressional members of all stripes should support the full implementation of Bernie Sanders’  1992   Cancer Registries Amendment Act.

Please help us STOP the Centers for Disease Control & the National Cancer Institute from continuing to stonewall Bernie Sanders’ 1992 Cancer Registries Amendment Act

It is THE LAW!!!!!  and it has been for 23 years now; but it must be fully implemented!

 Please Note: Since  the U.S. government  has not yet created the legally mandated  national  cancer registry, as legislated by Bernie Sanders’ 1992 law, the U.S. public now receives national cancer statistics from a private organization, North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, founded in 1987 and funded by the cancer  treatment industry, the American Cancer Society  and the Centers for Disease Control.

The data generated by the NAACCR is based on primary tumor information, not on the number of individuals diagnosed with cancer in any one year. This means U.S. cancer statistics cannot be compared to cancer statistics from other countries as the U.S. counts tumors, while other nations count people. This year the  NAACCR published  an annual report  to the nation  which gives us tumor data from 1975 to 2011.







Placenta-Based Creams,Conditioners & Syngenta’s Atrazine = Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Placenta-based skin creams and hair conditioners & the chemical estrogen, atrazine…

may be key to high rates of  triple negative breast cancer

in younger women who relax/straighten their ethnic hair

Researchers focused on triple negative breast cancer still cannot figure out why African American, African and Ashkenazi Jewish women all have higher rates of so-called triple negative breast cancer than Euro-American (white) women.  Solving this puzzle should be helpful in stopping most triple negative breast cancer before it starts.

In my book, Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps to Protect our Daughters/Ourselves from this Unnecessary Disease, I describe how these same population groups often use placenta-based (high estrogen) hair conditioners, once they have processed or straightened their  extremely curly hair.

I also note that research, beginning in 1996, shows how using placenta-based whitening skin creams and placenta-based hair conditioners on a regular basis, can induce early breast bud formation in young children, which goes away, once the placenta-based products are stopped. There is also an abundance of information showing that chemical estrogens and other toxins, absorbed by a pregnant women, flow through the umbilical cord to the fetus, where breast bud cell damage can happen in utero.

It is therefore possible that African (Nigerian and Ghanaian), African-American and Ashkenazi Jewish infant girls are often  born with damaged or mutated breast buds, if their mothers used these placenta products while pregnant. Such damaged or mutated breast cells can be  an important supporting role in the development of breast cancer.

Following the metabolic theory of cancer, all it can take is a  constant acidic American diet of  meat and dairy with added antibiotics and growth hormones, along with   high amounts of sugar and white flour-based foods (glucose), to turn    a twenty or thirty-year-old woman’s  body into an acidic breast cancer- making machine, as  healthy breast cells are transformed into breast cancer cells.

Meanwhile, Nigerian and Ghanaian girls and women  usually eat a vegetable diet, grown on land treated with the insecticide atrazine, which has now contaminated these nations’ water supplies with the highest levels of this inflammatory chemical hormone in the world.

Again… following the metabolic theory of cancer, weakened breast cells combined with  acidic  atrazine-laced water, can create an acidic body that turns the women into  cancer-making machines… as healthy cells are quickly transformed into fermenting sugar-loving breast cancer cells.

Women who want to see an end to this world-wide increase in triple negative breast cancer, especially among our younger women, need to find ways to educate the African American, African and Ashkenazi Jewish communities about the dangers of these placenta hair conditioners… during and after pregnancy… not to mention the need to somehow create low-sugar and low-hormone based diets.

Meanwhile, atrazine, the second most popular herbicide in the U.S., needs to be banned in North America and the African continent. The European Union banned the toxic pesticide in 2004. In 2012, Syngenta, the manufacturer of atrazine,  agreed to pay a hundred and five million dollars to reimburse more than a thousand water systems in Missouri and Illinois  for the cost of filtering atrazine from drinking water.

Syngenta was formed in 2000 by the merger of  the agri side of  AstraZenaca and Novartis, two pharmaceutical companies that manufacture  block buster breast cancer drugs including  Arimedex and Faslodex.  So one company helps increase breast cancer rates in women, while their parent companies sell drugs that try to stop breast cancer from killing women.

Younger Florida Women Face Rising Breast Cancer Rates

Key West Florida: More Florida women, under 50 years old, are being diagnosed with invasive breast cancer each year.  In 1984 only 53 out of 100,000 younger women in the state were diagnosed; by 2008 that number had jumped to 74 out of 100,000; a  1.7 percent annual increase, according to the Florida  Statewide Cancer Registry.

Florida women are not alone. In 2007, 83 out of 100,000 Massachusetts women under 50 were diagnosed with the invasive disease, while in Colorado that year, the  number was 70/100,000.   Since the mid 80’s, younger women under 50 in all three states have faced annual increases of 0.9 to 2.3 percent.

In contrast, British women under 50 are at 1970 U.S.levels with only 42/100,000 women under 50 being diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2010.  Why this great disparity between the two countries?

“Much higher use of birth control drugs by U.S. women and no federal laws banning growth hormones from  U.S. dairy and meat products  are two contributing factors to our high  breast cancer rates,” according to Susan Wadia-Ells, founding director of the National Breast Cancer Prevention Project/Busting Breast Cancer, now based in Key West.  The six- year- old virtually-volunteer non-profit is focused on translating new research on the causes of breast cancer into healthy prevention steps  individual women can follow.

Most breast cancer funds in Florida and elsewhere still ignore teaching this new prevention information; instead 98% of breast cancer funding remains focused on detection or mammograms and on “finding the cure.”

Bucking the tide, Wadia-Ells’ non profit teaches individual women 7 Simple Steps, including  using vitamin D3 supplements,  safe tanning;  choosing hormone-free birth control methods, using shower filters and eating a low-white/ high-greens diet; all  simple, inexpensive and yet significant ways to help stop breast cancer before it starts.

“Given our for- profit sick care system, U.S.women are currently the only group with the self -interest and the ability to stop most breast cancer before it starts.” said Wadia-Ells.

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.










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.,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!!!













Breast Cancer rates soar for post menopausal women taking statin drugs

Breast Cancer Risk Increases by 85-97 percent in Women, 55-74 years old,  Who Use Statin Drugs for 10 years

No wonder breast cancer rates for  postmenopausal women are possibly  the highest/the most horrible in the world; with the National Cancer Institute’s Philip  Rosenberg recently predicting that current breast cancer rates in post-menopausal  women will increase 50 percent  by 2030 as  baby boomer women grow older.  The culprit, it turns out, is not so much age… as the drugs these women have been  asked to take.

We already know about those progestin based HRT drugs... they raise breast cancer incidence by 26 percent in  post menopausal women  who use Prempro and other “combo” HRT drugs.

Next we learn that  breast cancer risk increases by 91 percent in this same age group, among those who have taken  statin drugs for more than ten years. We are talking about  drugs with names such as: Zocor, Mevacor, Cresto, Pravachol and Vytorin. 

Aside from being a huge money- making product  for pharmaceutical companies,  statins are now causing lots of unnecessary breast cancer diagnoses.  According to a study from nationally respected epidemiologists at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle,  older women who take these drugs for more than 10 years have an 83% increase in invasive ductal carcinoma and a 97%increase in invasive lobular carcinoma.

And to make this whole troubling statin scenario even more worrisome, we are also learning that statin drugs do not even lower  a person’s heart attack risk; their alleged   goal in the first place.

Just as few physicians are aware of this 2013 statin and breast cancer study, the medical profession also seems unaware of the fact that most individuals’ blood cholesterol readings have little to do with the amount of  good or bad fats a person eats every day.

Best selling authors, Drs David Brownstein and David Perlmutter,  have both uncovered many of these  anti-statin research studies that have long been ignored or left unfunded by our federal health agencies.

Meanwhile, Dr David Diamond, a professor at the University of South Florida, has discovered that drug company-sponsored or influenced studies on statin drugs over past years, have twisted statistics to make these drugs look like the good guys, when they are not.

See  Brownstein’s excellent post on this subject

Read Dr Perlmutter’s assessment of statins.

Listen to  Dr. Diamond’s expose of the false numbers used in many published statin studies.

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.

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.
