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.     ——————————————————

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.

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….”

Some Foods can Block Breast Cancer Metastasis

More than 40 plant-based compounds,  that block or slow down breast and some other types of cancer metastasis, were  identified in a study published on line last month. Some of these protective foods include: amino acids; vitamin D3;  ginseng extract; lycopene, found in tomatoes; curcumin, found in tumeric; pomegranate juice and fish oil.

The study, by  pharmacology professor Gary Meadows, published in Cancer and Metastasis, was surprisingly , the first to focus on metastatic-blocking foods and supplements.

“Earlier studies by dozens of researchers have clearly identified many of these same foods as helping stop breast cancer before it can begin,” said Susan Wadia-Ells, author of the forthcoming book, Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps to protect our daughters from this unnecessary disease, and founding director of the National Breast Cancer Prevention Project/Busting Breast Cancer.

“It’s comforting to know that women can enjoy both preventative and critical life-saving benefits from eating these healthy and inexpensive foods and supplements,” said Wadia-Ells.

 

 

Matuschka, artist & breast cancer activist joins Busting Breast Cancer’s Nat’l Advisory Board

 

I have always adhered to the philosophy that one should speak and show the truth, because knowledge leads to free will, to choice. If we keep quiet about what cancer does to women’s bodies, if we refuse to accept women’s bodies in whatever condition they are in, we are doing a disservice to womankind. ………..Matuschka

 

 

 

 

Matuschka, the award-winning  artist and pioneering breast cancer educator, whose self portrait shocked the world  when it appeared on the cover of the New York Times Magazine in 1993, has joined Busting Breast Cancer’s National Advisory Board.

We are thrilled and honored that one of this country’s most creative and effective activists for stopping breast cancer before it can start, is joining forces with our National Breast Cancer Prevention Project/Busting Breast Cancer organization.

The artist’s stunning series of post mastectomy photographic self images continue to make their mark  as   legendary educational and awareness tools. Reflecting the artist’s genius, these same pieces remain  timeless works of art.

Beauty out of Damage, the image that stunned individuals as they turned to read their Sunday New York Times Magazine, on August 15, 1993,   was nominated for a 1994 Pulitzer Prize    and is included in Life Magazines’ s 100 Photographs that Changed the World.  

Matuschka lives and works in New York City.

 

 

 

 

Annie Appleseed Founding Director Joins Busting Breast Cancer’s National Advisory Board

Ann Fonfa,  founding director of the award-winning  Annie Appleseed Project,   recently joined Busting Breast Cancer’s National Advisory Board.

 

We are honored to have this pioneer  educator  in  alternative approaches to cancer prevention  and treatment join our newly formed advisory group.

Fonfa, diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 1993 at the age of 44,   underwent  a mastectomy, but refused radiation and chemotherapy. Fonfa has since  studied alternative healing therapies,  tried many of them, and  has remained cancer-free since 2001.

Fonda’s website, www.annieappleseedproject.org,  receives over 95,000 visits each month.  It  is a clearinghouse for information and useful links on alternative cancer treatment –including notices and  summaries of scientific conferences on alternative and complementary approaches to treating cancer.

Fonfa is also a board member of the National Breast Cancer Coalition,  Advocacy Chair for the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, a member of the Society for Integrative Oncology, and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure LGBT National Advisory Council.  Fonfa lives in Del Ray Beach, Florida.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Michael Holick, Vitamin D3 Expert, Joins Busting Breast Cancer’s National Advisory Board

Dr Michael Holick Ph.D, M.D.,  Professor of Medicine, Physiology, and Biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine,  recently joined Busting Breast Cancer’s National Advisory Board.

Dr Michael Holick receiving General Clinical Research Centers Program Award for Excellence in Clinical Research,at the National Institutesof Health, Washington, DC, March, 2006.

We are honored that Dr Holick has agreed to join us at Busting Breast Cancer, as we work to teach women  how to increase their vitamin D3 blood levels in order to  help stop breast cancer before it can start.

Dr Holick’s most recent book The Vitamin D3 Solutionreveals a well-kept secret: our bodies need a sensible amount of unprotected sun exposure to protect us from bone loss, lowered immune function and breast and colon cancers.

Using safe outdoor and indoor tanning/taking sufficient levels of Vitamin D3 supplements to increase one’s blood serum level to 60-80 ng/ml,  is one of Busting Breast Cancer’s 3 Easy Ways to help stop breast cancer before it starts.

Commenting on Holick’s recent book, New York Times bestselling author,   Christiane Northrup, MD,  said,  “This information can save your life. Really.”

Raise your vitamin D3 blood levels … and say NO!! to breast cancer & the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force!

It would be devastating if women learned how to stop breast cancer before it started.

More than  200,000 women in the U.S. would not need to purchase expensive treatment  and drugs each year. Billions of dollars in profits would be lost overnight.

For example,  tens of thousands of women would have no need to purchase Taxol, Tamoxifen,  Arimidex, Herceptin or other breast cancer drugs.  Oncologists would lose millions of dollars in  drug company commissions from these prescriptions and  even more dollars each year from patient insurance and co-pays.

If women stopped developing invasive breast cancer, an untold number of jobs would soon  be lost within medical centers, radiology clinics and pharmaceutical companies as the demand for breast cancer drugs and services ground to a halt. Worse,  new construction for expanded breast surgery and reconstruction clinics would be cancelled, most mammography centers might need to close and research dollars for new breast cancer genetic tests, vaccines and   find- the- cure drugs would dry up. Susan G Komen and a good portion of the American Cancer Society would shut down operations.

Also, agency chiefs and middle managers in our national cancer agencies, (National Cancer Institute, Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration) would no longer switch between  higher paying government and private sector cancer jobs as much. This current revolving-door culture  means  that government reports sometimes appear to support  Big Pharma, or the radiation industry, instead of keeping women informed on how to stop breast cancer before it starts.

Just take a look at a recent government Vitamin D3 report that says  women should  stop taking Vitamin D3 supplements.

What a silly idea!!!

What should we make of this document by the Preventative Services Task Force that actually ignores dozens of  recent studies supporting higher levels of D3 and instead tells us that vitamin D3 is fairly useless when it comes to protecting bones, or helping  prevent a breast cancer diagnosis??!!

I won’t comment on the individuals selected to serve on this  current national  Task Force, the group that  issued this out -of -date report.  It is more important to focus on the research its  members were asked to review.

You know the saying.. junk in.. junk out. Well the Task Force was asked to review or comment upon two older studies where women took very low doses of vitamin D3 each day (400 IU).

Surprise!! These research studies  showed  that taking only 400 IUs (international units) of D3 supplements daily,  had little to no effect on improved bone density. These same research studies  also found that these low levels of vitamin D3 supplementation did not have any effect on breast cancer prevention.

Using these two studies as their information base, the Task Force’s report says  taking Vitamin D3 supplements is useless.

Duh!!!!???

I would encourage the Task Force to erase their current report and try reviewing at least five of the most recent, most comprehensive studies of what happens to breast, prostate and colon cancer rates when  a person uses safe tanning and  adequate  vitamin D3 supplements (2,000-5,000 IUs/day) in order to  maintains  50-80 ng/ml of vitamin D3 in their blood serum.

PRESTO… cancer prevention happens!!!

Read these studies yourself & don’t miss seeing the video by Dr Cedric Garland of the Moores Cancer Center in San Diego, as he describes the biological mechanism that happens as vitamin D3 blocks tumor growth.

Garland’s DINOMIT theory of cancer shows how breast, prostate and colon cells, when given enough vitamin D3,  become  a coordinated safety net, protecting each specific organ from developing cancerous tumors.

If you want a book on the subject, try Dr Michael Holick’s  2010 book, The Vitamin D3 Solution.  Visit www.bustingbreastcancer.org  to see these and other resources.

Women (and those who love us), it turns out, are the only group within the U.S. culture today with the self interest and the power to stop breast cancer before it starts. So  women must take charge of boosting their individual D3 blood serum levels.
