The number of new cancer diagnoses in Western countries has risen by 60% since 1950. In a survey of industrialized nations (including the USA, Europe and Japan), non-smoking-related cancers account for nearly 80% of this growth.

Prostate cancer has increased by 200%
Breast cancer by 64%, and
Childhood cancer by 35%

Cancer is now expected to strike 1 in 2 men and over 1 in 3 women in their lifetime.

Cancer has now surpassed heart disease for the first time as the top killer of Americans under age 85.

On focusing on fund-raising and early detection, aren’t we placing an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff?
Shouldn’t we be focusing on prevention and understanding why this alarming rise has occurred, and is still occurring? Where is the War on Prevention that will explain what is causing the breast cancer epidemic? 1 in 8 women will now face a breast cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.

Is the cause of the epidemic really a mystery or are we simply being poisoned by the mountain of toxic chemicals released into our environment each year?

In the years since World War II, an estimated 80,000 new synthetic chemicals have been released into our environment. Few of these chemicals have been tested for long-term safety, despite finding their way into food, water and personal care products.We consume or apply them to our body every day of our life.

Below are some research findings that have received some publicity over the last decade. Surprisingly, these have not been incorporated into any nation-wide prevention campaign.They sank without a trace while the media has focused our attention on the next fund raising campaign and how a cure is just around the corner (please read How Successful are Conventional Cancer Treatments?)

The next section is called GARBAGE IN. It is about some of the numerous poisonous substances that have found their way into our bodies.

The section after that is called GARBAGE OUT. It is about some of the factors that hinder the natural processes of our bodies to detoxify and eliminate these poisonous substances from our bodies.


Shaving and deodorant use

A Chicago survey of 437 women with breast cancer, found a link between frequency of underarm cosmetics use, shaving and age when diagnosed.

It was found that women who perform underarm shaving more aggressively had a diagnosis of breast cancer 22 years earlier than the non-users of underarm cosmetics.

If you disrupt the skin by shaving, it can open up the door to the contents of whatever you put on your skin afterwards, because just under the skin is the lymphatic system, which is connected to the breast. It is believed the culprits in these antiperspirants are the toxins in aluminum salts such as aluminum chlorohydrate. They don't normally penetrate the skin enough to cause a problem--unless the skin is shaven.

Also, British researchers have found traces of chemicals called parabens in tissue taken from women with breast cancer, the highest concentration being in the quadrant nearest the underarm. Parabens mimic the effects of the hormone oestrogen, which is known to stimulate tumours in two thirds of women with breast cancer.

Parabens are used as preservatives, and on the label they may be listed as methyl paraben, ethyl paraben, propyl paraben, butyl paraben, isobutyl paraben or E216. Even “natural” deodorants may not be paraben-free.

"The breast is like the dust bin of the body these days," states Dr Darbre, a key researcher. "God knows what this cocktail of chemicals does to women."

Aspartame (NutraSweet/ Equal/ Spoonful/ Equal Measure)

Complaints about aspartame represent 80-85% of all food complaints registered with the FDA.

Strong statistical evidence links aspartame to breast cancer. The American Cancer Society figures show that breast cancer cases have doubled since 1981, the year aspartame was approved for use as a food additive.

Dr. John W. Olney, a neuroscientist at Washington University, St. Louis, highlighted that the rates of the extremely deadly forms of brain cancer (e.g., glioblastoma and anaplastic astrocytoma) in the most susceptible populations, went up significantly not long after aspartame's approval.

Researchers are calling for further studies of the link between aspartame and cancer.

The synthetic amino acids that compose aspartame -- phenylalanine, aspartic acid, and the methanol in which they are bound, are poisonous. Phenylalanine (50% of aspartame) causes seizures and degrades into DKP, a tumor causing agent. Aspartic acid (40% of aspartame) caused holes in the brains of mice according to Dr. John Olney.

Methanol (wood alcohol, 10% of aspartame) is a cumulative toxin in the body. Since it is "free" methanol", appearing without ethanol (the antidote for methanol toxicity always present in natural food such as fruit juice), the methanol in aspartame is lethal. Methanol destroys the optic nerve and can cause blindness. Fetal tissue cannot tolerate methanol.

In addition, the methanol in aspartame breaks down into formaldehyde (embalming fluid) and formic acid which has the chemical composition of ant venom. Formic acid is used commercially in products such as paint stripper.

Records released under the Freedom of Information Act apparently showed that aspartame caused dozens of mammary tumors in animals tested from 1971 to 1974 by G.D. Searle, the pharmaceutical company, responsible for aspartame.

Searle has been accused of falsifying results of their animal testing when they presented evidence of aspartame safety to the FDA for approval as a "food additive".

If you have breast cancer or a brain tumor, now might be a good time to think about your use of Diet Coke and other products containing aspartame/ NutraSweet.

http://www.dorway.com/jcohen.html Jennifer Cohen wants to shame the FDA into doing its job. “Will they NOW divorce the drug companies, reclassify aspartame as a cumulative toxic poison, and then mandate its removal from over 9,000 items in the human diet?

Root canals, infected teeth, cavitations, severe gum disease

Teeth have roots with main canals and thousands of side canals and contained in those side canals are miles of nerves. When dentists perform a root canal, they remove the nerve from the main canals. However they do not have access to the microscopic side canals which have dead nerves left behind in those spaces, even with the ‘smarter’ filling materials and methods in use today.

Anaerobic bacteria, which do not require oxygen to survive, thrive in these side canals to grow and excrete toxicity from digesting necrotic (dead) tissue that leads to chronic infection. If an organ or limb dies in our body, we would remove it, but not so with teeth!

Blood supply and lymphatics that surround those dead teeth drains this toxicity and allows it to spread throughout the body, contributing to the inability to fight cancer as it arises in the body.

This toxicity will invade all organ systems and can lead to a plethora of diseases such as cancers, autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, irritable bowel diseases, and depression to name just a few.

Cancer therapies will most likey fail if a patient continues to harbor infection in his/her mouth. The infection that has chronically compromised his/her immune system may come from from root canals as discussed above, but also from infected teeth, cavitations, and severe gum disease. A weakened immune system means a weakened overall ability to eliminate toxicity and to heal as a whole.

Dentist, Frank Jerome states "The idea of keeping a dead, infected organ in the body is only thought to be a good idea by dentists. A root canal-treated tooth always negatively affects your immune system."

Perfumes, pthalates and testicular cancer

High levels of a chemical blamed for causing infertility in men have been found in some of the world's best-known perfumes and cosmetics.

Chanel No 5, Christian Dior's Poison, Eternity from Calvin Klein and Tresor by Lancome were among 34 toiletries found by a Swedish study to contain di-ethylhexyl phthalate or other phthalates. The European Commission is proposing a ban on the use in cosmetics of two of the most potent forms of phthalates amid fears they cause genital abnormalities affecting up to 4 per cent of male babies.

These genital abnormalities - which can include undescended testicles and malformation of the urinary tract - are blamed for soaring levels of testicular cancer in young men. Cases of the disease have risen tenfold in the past century. About 1,900 British males, some as young as 15, are diagnosed every year. Nine out of 10 cases are cured, but doctors are worried by the trend.

Scientists believe the phthalates could be absorbed into women's bloodstreams through the skin or inhalation.

Numerous studies on rats and mice have shown phthalate exposure causes genital abnormality. The latest research was conducted by a Swedish government-accredited laboratory for Healthcare Without Harm, a US-based organisation representing 300 consumer pressure groups around the world.

Researchers at the Analycen lab analysed 34 leading brands of cosmetics and found more than three-quarters contained phthalates, which help prevent loss of fragrance.

The investigation found other forms of the chemical in Tommy Girl perfume, Impulse Body Spray, Nivea Deo Compact, Sure Ultra deodorant, Shockwaves hair mousse and four hairsprays including Elnett Satin, Pantene Pro-V Extra Hold and Vidal Sassoon.

Per Rosander, who wrote the report, said: "What we know about these chemicals is that they cause damage to the reproductive system. That is why they have been classed by the EU as reproductive toxins."

Richard Sharpe, of the Medical Research Council's Human Reproductive Sciences Unit in Edinburgh, said: "If you wanted to produce a list of environmental causes of the reproductive health problems in boys, phthalates would be pretty near the top of the list."

Actor Julia Sawalha, who played Saffy in Absolutely Fabulous, supports the Women's Environmental Network, a backer of the Swedish research. "Chemicals that pose a risk to fertility do not belong in cosmetics, and manufacturers should be made to list ingredients," she said. [The Sunday Times November 25, 2002.]

It seems an inescapable fact that corporations need to be held accountable for the ingredients in the products they sell, and their effect on people’s health. Western governments and ourselves as individuals, need to demand that the War on Prevention is kickstarted.

In the meantime, we need to avoid all the above if we have cancer already, or wish to avoid it in future.

Some simple actions are:

If you can afford it, buy organic fruit and vegetables. Also buy organic meat if you can. According to the Organic Consumers Association, about two thirds of the cattle produced in the U.S. are treated with several growth hormones allowed by the USDA and the FDA. One of these hormones – 17 beta-estradiol (a synthetic version of the female hormone progesterone) – has been proven to be carcinogenic. In fact, the European Union has banned the importation of any cattle treated with 17 beta- estradiol.

Use the safe and inexpensive non-toxic home care cleaning methods described at websites like http://eartheasy.com/live_nontoxic_solutions.htm

Note: Do not use isopropyl alcohol because of Dr. Hulda Clark’s findings – the site also provides a warning. Dr. Clark is a very successful therapist in the alternative cancer field.

For safe cosmetic and body care products, follow the advice at Dr. Clark’s Body Cleanup Advice at http://www.drclark.net/info/body.htm

Dr. Clark says “How can propyl alcohol in shampoo get into your body in significant amounts? The skin is more absorbent than we realize, and time and time again I see cancer victims who have gone off every body product except their favorite shampoo. They harbor propyl alcohol until they make that final sacrifice. It is better, to switch shampoos than to not need any due to radiation and chemotherapy!”


Wearing a bra
There is a strong link between wearing a bra and breast cancer. Apparently, the restrictive nature of bras inhibits the lymphatic system (an internal network of vessels and nodes that flushes wastes from the body) from doing its job.

The mammary glands are filled with lymphatic vessels that move from the breast, through the axillary lymph nodes under the armpit, over the collar bone, to the thoracic duct. This is how the breast drains toxins and keeps its internal environment clean.

If something impedes the cleansing process, an imbalance occurs and the sex hormone by-products become destructive molecules called free radicals that begin cellular damage (called lipid peroxidation) which leads to breast cancer.

The correlation between bras and breast cancer is 4 times greater than smoking is to lung cancer!

Women who wear tight-fitting bras 24 hours a day are 125 times more likely to have breast cancer than women who do not wear bras at all.

For more information, read Dressed To Kill: The Link between Breast Cancer and Bras by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer.

One study was done of two groups of Fiji women with the same diet, environment and lifestyle, half of whom wore bras and the other half not. Those wearing bras had the same rate of breast cancer as women living in the USA, whereas the braless Fiji women had practicallv no breast cancer. The weight of braless breasts causes the breasts to swing and bob naturally as the person moves, which pumps the lymphatic tissue.

Even lumps in the breast have sometimes vanished after stopping bra use. Some breast lumps and congestions arise from insufficient blood and lymph flow in the breasts and armpits and/or from blocked milk ducts (whether lactating or not), both of which are favored by bra wearing.

Pushup bras are said to be the most restrictive. If you cannot discontinue wearing a bra, consider wearing one as little as possible, and use a bra that allows some breast motion, without cutting tightly under and along the outer edges of the breasts where the milk ducts are located.

Dr David G. Williams in his April 1994 Alternatives newsletter pointed out that, "from tests performed at breast screening clinics, carcinogenic agents are often found in both the breast tissue and the fluids extracted from the nipple." He goes on to add that "high levels of DDT, PCBs, dioxins, and heavy metal[s]" have been found in breast milk.

The good news, he states, is there is a very simple technique that might prevent cancer: nipple stimulation. Dr Williams reports that during nipple stimulation, oxytocin is produced, which stimulates the sac-like glands and small muscles in the breast to contract and help clear the breast of carcinogens. Dr Williams recommends that any woman over the age of 18 should examine her breasts at least monthly, and two or three times a week, she should gently stimulate the circulation to her nipples, three minutes per nipple.

Additionally, a breast massage from China is used for prevention and for existing tumors. Once you've done the nipple massage, rub your breasts in ever increasing circles and finish each stroke rubbing toward the armpit where the lymph glands are located. Do this a minimum of three times a week, a minimum of three minutes per breast.

Also, stimulating the lymph glands (tapping them lightly for one minute) is something that is part of a daily routine for over one million Chinese. Raise your arm, and, using the base of the thumb on the opposite arm (hand), "whap" your armpit repeatedly. Do not do it so hard as to cause any discomfort, just a slight tap is all you need.

Fragrances (found everywhere!) impacting our immune system

Synthetic fragrances may accumulate in out bodies and inhibit our body’s immune system. It is the immune system that fights other environmental toxins, and cancer when it arises in our body.

"Synthetic musks that are widely used as fragrances in products such as soaps, cosmetics and detergents may reduce the body's ability to defend against toxic compounds”, says a study in the January 2005 issue of Environmental Health Perspectives.

About 8,000 metric tons of synthetic musks are produced worldwide each year. In laboratory research using human tissue, researchers at Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station found that exposure to synthetic musks inhibited the tissue's natural defenses against toxic compounds.

This effect persisted long after the end of the tissue's exposure to the synthetic musks. These musks concentrate in fats, including breast milk, and remain in human tissue long after exposure. This study's suggestion that they could harm the body's ability to fight other toxicants certainly merits further examination," states Dr. Jim Burkhart, science editor for Environmental Health Perspectives.

Light exposure at night suppressing melatonin

Breast Cancer

The nighttime hormone melatonin puts breast cancer cells to sleep. It also slows breast cancer growth by 70%.

David E. Blask, MD, PhD, of Bassett Research Institute in Cooperstown, N.Y., reported these 2004 findings to the American Association for Cancer Research.

Breast cancers get revved up by a kind of dietary fat called linoleic acid. Melatonin interacts with linoleic acid, so he gave melatonin to mice implanted with human breast cancers.

"This breast cancer rev-up mechanism gets revved down by melatonin," Blask said at a news conference. "Nighttime melatonin is a relevant anticancer signal to human breast cancers. Ninety percent of human breast cancers have specific receptors for this signal."

The hormone seeps from a pea-sized gland in the brain when the lights go out at night. It's the reason you get sleepy when it's dark. Blask and colleagues found that melatonin puts cancer cells to sleep, too.

Blask's team exposed lab mice with human breast cancers to constant light. Tumor growth skyrocketed.
"With constant light, tumors grow seven times faster and soak up incredible amounts of linoleic acid," he says. "During the day, the cancer cells are awake and linoleic acid stimulates their growth. But at night cancer cells go to sleep. When we turn on lights at night for a long time, we suppress melatonin and revert back to the daytime condition."

The finding may explain why nurses who often work the night shift have high rates of breast and colon cancer.
Blask says clinical trials are under way to see whether melatonin supplements can help treat cancer. It may also help in other ways.

"When you take melatonin prior to normal onset of sleep, it will [jump-start the sleep cycle]," he notes.

"Many cancer patients suffer from sleep problems. Melatonin may also improve the quality of life in cancer patients by helping them sleep."

Children's Leukemia

A growing body of evidence linking increased night light to certain types of cancer has led researchers to suspect it could be connected to the steady increase in cases of childhood leukemia.

Scientists presenting research at the First International Scientific Conference on Childhood Leukemia said that light at night (LAN) and working shifts, which disrupts the body’s internal clock, have been associated with an raised risk of breast and colorectal cancer.

We don’t know whether abnormal light exposure is generating this higher incidence of childhood leukemia or not, but in view of what we know of other forms of cancer this is not unreasonable,” Russell Foster, a molecular neuroscientist at Imperial College London, said in an interview.

Leukemia is the commonest cancer in young children.

Studies have shown that a reduction in melatonin is linked to an increased risk of certain cancers.

As an antioxidant, in many studies melatonin has been shown to protect DNA from oxidative damage. Once damaged, DNA may mutate and carcinogenesis may occur,” stated one researcher.

Misuse of light may be contributing to a number of different cancers including the increasing incidence of leukemia in children,” the researcher added. This includes having a night-light on for children who may be afraid of the dark.

One wonders whether the growth of television and video games over the last 50 years, which means many children stay up later at night, has contributed to the growth in childhood cancer. This night-time light could be suppressing the natural production of melatonin that would otherwise fight the free radicals that damage DNA, leading to cancer.

The rise in childhood cancer has occurred at the same time as the growth of television and video games!

Prostate congestion and prostate cancer

In a similar way that massage helps drain toxins from women's breasts, massage also helps drain carcinogens from men's prostate glands, and can be highly beneficial in treating prostatis and BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy). Studies have shown that women who breastfeed and men who ejaculate frequently, are significantly less at risk for breast and prostate cancer, respectively... because of their actions that drain these two organs.

Dr David Williams in his February 2005 Alternatives Newsletter writes that "Before drugs became the accepted first line of treatment for prostate problems, massage was used successfully, without hesitation, by practically all doctors.... Prostate massage fell out of favor not because it was ineffective, but because there was no money in it for the pharmaceutical companies."

Research underlines the importance of maintaining adequate levels of zinc to prevent the development of prostate cancer. Preventing congestion caused by either obstruction or infrequent drainage, is also important.

Dr Williams advises there is a very helpful device called the Pro-State Massager. ""It can be a lifesaver to someone suffering from prostatis or BPH... It promotes increased circulation to the gland and helps reduce congestion, swelling and inflammation." He recommends the "PS New" Model. It can be ordered from http://www.HighIsland.com or by phone at 713-680-8840.

Dr Williams states "In the few published studies, it appears prostate massage often lowers PSA levels -- which should make it one of the first lines of treatment for prostate cancer, instead of the current surgical procedures that are known to leave between 20 and 70 percent impotent and between 15 and 50 percent incontinent."

Proven, low cost cancer protection! “Most potent broad-spectrum anticarcinogenic agent that has yet been discovered!” Are you taking it? See page 232 of Natural Cancer Treatments for the most effective form of this mineral. Taking 200 mcg daily has been proven to reduce:
• Prostate cancer incidence by 63 percent
• Colon cancer incidence by 58 percent
