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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!!!!

 

 

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.

 

 

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.”

Dr. Mercola Urges Increases in Vitamin D3 Levels

The Truth About Breast Cancer is ecstatic to learn that a leading holistic MD, Dr. Joseph Mercola, has now joined KnowBreastCancer in urging all women to increase their Vitamin D3 levels ASAP!

Dr. Mercola, with the most popular natural health website on the internet, www.mercola.com, agrees with Dr. Cedric Garland’s DINOMIT Theory of cancer as the fastest way we can turn breast cancer into a rare disease.

If women can get their Vitamin D3 blood levels up to a level of 60-80 ng/ml, mastectomies and reconstruction surgeries may soon become history!

Currently, the American Cancer Society, the Institute of Medicine, and national pink ribbon groups don’t talk to women about this inexpensive and effective option as a way to stop breast cancer before it can start. Unfortunately, their focus is  usually limited to finding a cure; with much of these non-profits’ budgets supplied  by big pharma and radiology companies that give millions of dollars in donations each year to these for- the- cure groups.

Another helpful site that encourages women to use enough  vitamin D3 supplements every day to reach 60 ng/ml – 80-ng/ml, to help stop breast cancer before it can start is Grassroots Health, a national public health  organization www.grassrootshealth.net.

Coming up next time on The Truth About Breast Cancer:  The relationship between inflammation and  breast cancer.

New Vitamin D3 mouse study smells fishy

Millions of dollars are again being spent to scare the public away from taking effective level of vitamin D3 supplements, that can block the development of invasive breast cancer in U.S. women.

Last summer Big Pharma sponsored a Vitamin D3 report by experts, most of whom currently received significant income from pharmaceutical companies, that ignored twenty years of solid research on the many benefits enjoyed by Americans taking much much higher levels of vitamin D3. Using the Institute of Medicine, a pharmaceutical-industry funded organization, the July 2010 report urged Americans to limit their intake of Vitamin D3 to 1,000 IUs or less per day.

Now someone is paying big bucks to publicize a small mouse study out of Georgetown University Hospital, that mentions how high levels of vitamin D3… although clearly helpful in stopping most types of breast cancer, was not helpful for skinny mice who were “pre-destined” to develop one type of estrogen negative breast cancer. This.. after feeding the poor mice 15,000 IUs or more of vitamin D3 a day!

It will be important to see what leading Vitamin D3 researcher at University of California’s Moores Cancer Center or their education organization Grassroots Health, or the Vitamin D Council, or researchers at Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research or the well-respected Vitamin D researcher, Dr Michael Holick, at Boston University has to say about this latest publicity effort to limit Americans’ intake of this inexpensive food supplement that can help stop breast and colon cancer and many other conditions before they start. See Dr Cedric Garland’s video on how higher levels of vitamin D3 protects against these types of cancers in humans.

Remember… as more and more Americans use adequate levels of inexpensive Vitamin D3 supplements to protect ourselves from breast and colon cancers, the pharmaceutical companies lose billions of dollars each year in chemotherapy sales.

Breast Cancer survivor credits vitamin D for recovery

Listen to your doctor and also take enough vitamin D to get your blood serum levels up to 60-80 ng/ml is the word out of Toronto for Rhonda Abrams, diagnosed with stage IV invasive breast cancer five years ago.

Given two years to survive, in spite of following the medical protocol, Abrams read the new research on how enough Vitamin D3 can prevent tumor formation.

She took her life in her own hands and began supplementing her diet with enough daily Vitamin D3 to raise her       blood levels to the magical 60-80ng/ml.  Today her breast  cancer remains in remission.

Read about how Vitamin D3 can help protect you from developing breast cancer ever or never again at www.knowbreastcancer.net

And remember that the breast cancer detection and  treatment industy (oncology centers, “breast health” centers and drug companies) is not interested in teaching women how to avoid an initial breast cancer diagnosis.

Prevention is not their business;  prevention is not their job.

But prevention is your business and my business. We can learn how to take care of  our own health. Learn more at www.knowbreastcancer.net

Birth Control Pills Now Linked to Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Recent research out of Seattle  shows a disturbingly strong link between young  women (40 years and younger) who used oral contraceptives  and their tendency to develop triple negative breast cancer, a rapidly growing estrogen-negative type of the disease.

Among women (40 years and younger) the relative risk for triple-negative breast cancer associated with oral contraceptive use (of more than one year ) was 4.2. (95%confidence interval, 1.9-9.3)

This study, Risk Factors for Triple-Negative Breast Cancer in Women Under the Age of 45 Years,  involving over 1,000 women, led by Jessica M. Dolle, at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle,  and published in the academic journal, Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention in April of last year, did not find a similar link between   other kinds of  breast cancer and the use of oral contraceptives in this  same  group of breast cancer patients.

( one page abstract/summary of study)

http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/content/18/4/1157.abstract

( full study: ten page PDF)

http://www.jillstanek.com/Abortion%20Breast%20Cancer%20Epid%20Bio%20Prev%202009.pdf

Most types of breast cancer seem to be  caused by a  cocktail of various ingredients that appear to be unique to each person, that  mixed together can create  a perfect toxic storm.

Triple Negative breast cancer strikes  younger women more often than older women, and strikes black women at double the rate of white women. Younger black women are currently the most at- risk population for developing this type of breast cancer.

Sadly 90+%  of the dollars earmarked for  triple negative breast cancer research,  by Susan G Komen for the Cure, by  the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, by government and other private grant makers are only focused on developing  expensive drugs that can “find a cure”  for this disease.

Last week  a recent  market research report predicted that by 2018 a new breast cancer drug, BSI-201 will enjoy  $1.7 billion in worldwide sales, with special potential for the triple negative market.

http://www.drugstorenews.com/story.aspx?id=131607&menuid=345

For women fighting this disease, this is wonderful news as such drugs can be critical. But we also need  to figure out how to stop triple negative breast cancer before it starts... even if there is no $1.7 billion drug at the end of the rainbow.

Audre Lorde,  poet, lesbian, feminist leader,  African American and   author of The Cancer Journals, who  died  in 1992 after a fourteen-year struggle with breast cancer,   was one of the first to notice society’s interest in profit making, rather than in trying to stop  breast cancer before it starts.

…what would happen if an army of one-breasted women descended upon Congress and demanded that the use of carcinogenic, fat-stored hormones in beef-feed be outlawed?

Each year, about 30,000  women in the U.S.  are now being diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and this number continues to grow.  Most of these women are younger than 40 and more than 15% of these young women are  black.

We need to ask  foundations and government agencies to fund Jessica Dolle and other cancer prevention researchers as they try to  understand more about what chemicals, foods and drugs are causing all of this triple negative.

Meanwhile, do not expect your birth control pack  to mention Dolle’s recent research linking birth control drugs to triple negative breast cancer; in fact do not expect the American Cancer Society or even most major breast cancer foundations to breathe a word of  Dolle’s 2009 study.

Birth control pills and breast cancer drugs are both multi-billion dollar a year markets. The   pharmaceutical companies that sell these drugs also give many millions of dollars each year to the American Cancer Society, Komen and other.  Few organizations, I suppose,  want to bite the hands that feed them.

From a practical, personal  point of view, younger women who want to continue using birth control  pills should  counterbalance their risk of developing triple negative by getting a Vitamin D3 blood test.. and taking 2,000 IUs or more of Vitamin D3 supplements every day until your blood test shows you have a level of 60-80 ng/ml of vitamin D3. New research shows that this level of vitamin D3  should protect a huge majority of all women against developing all types of breast cancer.

Thinking of Sara Palin and Breast Health Centers…or.."Why our hospitals don't talk about real or natural breast cancer prevention

January 5, 2010

Manchester by the Sea, MA

Our  local  Breast ” Health” Centers,  located in medical centers, community hospitals and free-standing clinics around the U.S.,  currently do next to nothing about educating women on how to keep our breasts naturally healthy.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but as Sara says, “It’s still a pig.”

Breast “Health” Centers are currently breast cancer diagnostic centers; places where women are given screening x-rays and possibly more diagnostic  x-rays in the form of mammograms or MRIs with toxic dyes, along with needle aspirations,  and lumpectomies.

But real breast health is something different. Now that we know so much more about how breast cancer begins or grows; now that we know so much more about how to actually limit the number of women who ever develop breast cancer; it’s time for medical centers to also set up real Breast Health Centers or real Breast Cancer Prevention Centers.

Real or natural breast cancer prevention is no longer rocket science; getting the word out to women seems to be a more difficult task.

Here is a sampling of what real Breast Health Centers could offer women today:

  • A blood test to determine your vitamin D3 levels with info sessions on how much vitamin D3 and calcium supplements  you should be taking every day to gradually reach the new recommended level of 60-80 ng/ml of vitamin D3 in your blood serum levels.

For more info on how 60-89 ng/ml of vitamin D3 can amazingly block the first stage of breast cancer development, go to Easy Way #1 at www.knowbreastcancer.net

  • Individualized birth control counseling for women over 40, to help you switch off of birth control pills, patches, rings and estrogen-based IUDs. Women in their  40’s,  who still use these drugs,  significantly raise their risk of developing aggressive estrogen negative breast cancers.

To see some of the research showing that  contraceptive drugs are considered unsafe for women  over 40 years of age, go to Easy Way #3 at www.knowbreastcancer.net

  • Cooking classes for women who want to include dairy-free recipes and other breast cancer-protecting foods, such as Japanese miso and fermented black beans in their families’ daily meals. The Japanese and Chinese, with their dairy-free diets and numerous fermented soy dishes, have one third the breast cancer rates of North American and Northern European women!

For more info on how organic fermented soy foods can be more effective and safer than taking Tamoxifen or Arimidex, see Easy Way #6 at www.knowbreastcancer.net

  • Education groups for women who want to put less alcohol, less nicotine and less sugar into their bodies each day. This is obviously not an easy task, but offering such support under the label of  breast cancer prevention, will take some of the stigma out of treating these dangerous lifestyles.  Using one or more of these toxins every day can triple a woman’s risk level if trying to avoid a second breast cancer diagnosis. Carrying twenty extra pounds of fat can double any older woman’s risk of developing invasive breast cancer. Also heavy drinking and/or  any level of smoking appear to cancel out any protection offered from Vitamin D3 supplementation.

For the latest research on alcohol, smoking, excess body fat and increased breast cancer risk levels, go to Easy Way #7 at www.knowbreastcancer.net

This is all pretty sobering, exciting and hopeful info, but sadly don’t expect our local medical centers to open up any real Breast Health Centers any day soon.

Why not??!

A real or natural Breast Health Center is a low-tech, low-profit service, geared to decreasing the number of community women who will ever develop breast cancer. For these two reasons alone, medical centers do not believe it is in their financial self interest to create such centers.

Remember… most non-profit and for-profit medical centers and clinics operate as for-profit corporations. Executives are often paid a six or seven figure income when they are able to snuff out competing medical centers,   recruit more cancer patients, and continue to offer highly profitable medical services  to these individuals until they die.

Until we have a  health care system that is detached from any profit motives (such as your  local fire department is)  where people’s health (your burning home) comes before corporate profits, medical  centers will never be interested in sponsoring real breast health centers.
