Younger Florida Women Face Rising Breast Cancer Rates

More and 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 in breast cancer in the state’s younger women, according to the Florida  Statewide Cancer Registry.

Sadly,  Florida’s younger women are not alone. In 2007, 83 out of 100,000 Massachusetts women under 50 were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer,  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 years of age, experience significantly less invasive breast cancer, with 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 a U.S. Congress, unlike the European Union,  that still refuses to ban growth hormones from  U.S. dairy and meat products,  are two contributing factors to younger U.S. women now having the highest breast cancer rates in the world,” according to Susan Wadia-Ells, PhD, author of the forthcoming book, Busting Breast Cancer… with four simple steps to keep breast cancer out of your body: Our Personal Revolution, (Girl Friday Productions, Dec 2018).

Busting Breast Cancer is the result of a ten year  virtually-volunteer research project, uncovering ignored, un-funded and misrepresented studies on  how and why breast cancer begins in some women, but not in others.  Busting Breast Cancer translates  this old and new research  into biologically-based, healthy and affordable prevention steps  individual women can follow.

Today, most breast cancer organizations and clinics  in Florida and in other states,  are still not teaching this new prevention information to women. Instead,  millions of dollars are spent each year to urge women under 50 to  use ionizing  radiation (mammograms) to identify atypical breast cells, also called “Stage Zero” breast cancer or DCIS.

Once such women, of all ages,  are identified, they are  often encouraged to begin toxic breast cancer treatments including  lumpectomy surgery,  radiation, and chemotherapy. More recently,  women who have excellent medical insurance coverage, are being encouraged to actually consider single and double breast amputations, although they remain cancer-free..since these  atypical or “Stage Zero” breast cells are not cancerous.

All women,  including those diagnosed with  “atypical” breast cells, always have  another option. Taking control of restoring their own optimal health,  by using  simple, healthy prevention steps that  nourish breast cells, rather than choosing toxic and expensive breast mutilation.

Busting Breast Cancer describes and explains the importance of such steps, including  using   adequate amounts of vitamin D3 supplements and  safe tanning to fortify their immune system;  choosing hormone-free birth control methods to avoid the toxicity of chemical progestin, contain in all birth control drugs,   lowering  whole body inflammation by losing excess body fat,  and by lowering daily stress.

“Given our for- profit sick care system, U.S. women are  currently the only group  with the self -interest and the ability to keep  most breast cancer out of  our  own bodies.” said Wadia-Ells.
