In Participation with Breast Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The number 1 in 8 women develop breast cancer in their lifetime and this number may have changed to 1 in 7 women. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women, as well as an estimated 63,300 additional cases of In Situ Breast Cancer in 2012.
Women in the United States still have a high risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer even if they have no genetic predisposition for the disease, stated a report released Jan. 24 by the Breast Cancer Fund and Breast Cancer Action, two San Francisco-based advocacy groups. The report said that as many as 50 percent of breast cancer cases remain unexplained by either genetics or lifestyle factors such as how old a woman is at her first full-term pregnancy or her rate of alcohol consumption.
The two groups analyzed more than 350 scientific studies linking environmental factors to breast cancer to come up with their findings. In 2005, breast cancer was expected to kill more than 40,000 women in the U.S. The risk of an American woman being diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime has nearly tripled in the last 40 years, rising to a 1 in 7 chance.
"This report adds to the compelling evidence that the chemicals we're exposed to in our daily lives are making us sick," said Lisa Wanzor, acting executive director of Breast Cancer Action. "Women living with and at risk for breast cancer need public policies that will put our health first and protect us from exposures to toxic chemicals." source: Women's E-News
Estrogen and progesteron sensitive breast cancers will respond to the many chemicals and phyto-estrogens in our environment, such as bisphosphenol-A and even some high estrogen foods like soybean. This can explain some of the increase in incidence. Even men can be afflicted with this disease.
Use this time to work on our health. Every inch forward to notice and pay attention to our physical and spiritual self will bring us closer to good health.
Putting Some Light On
Modern medicine primarily focuses on X-Ray Mammography as "prevention" against breast-cancer, but is it truly prevention? Reducing your risk of breast cancer can be achieved through changes in diet and lifestyle. Learn about nutrition, exercise, sleep and sunlight. Learn what vegetables provide natural calcium that can be absorbed in the body?
The research shows that diet and shifts in body metabolism that parallel changes seen during obesity and Type 2 diabetes can also stimulate breast growth entirely independent of estrogens effects. And, there may be a genetic component for how diet and related metabolic changes affect breast cancer risk in different populations Photo source: UC Davis
A Young 19 Year Old Explains All About Cancer and Cancer Cells
1. Reduce or remove coffee and caffeine from the diet. Coffee contains methylxanthine. Chocolate contains theobromine. Both substances, derived from xanthine, are stimulants that are associated with creating fibrous tissue in the breast. By going cold turkey off these two items for several days, a woman can determine whether her breast tissue is sensitive to either coffee or chocolate.
2. Reduce or eliminate red meat. Many farm animals are fed antibiotics and GMO grains which effect the hormones of the animal and those who eat the meat of these animals. A majority of breast tissue is fat, which accumulates the chemicals, toxins and hormones. When you eat these fatty meat products, the liver cannot break down all the hormones and builds toxicity.
3. Add seaweed to the diet. Iodine depletion can be boosted with kelp powder, flakes and seaweed. If you enjoy sushi or roll your own with rice and avocado this will enhance the thyroid function and metabolism. Get tested.
4. Eat cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower all containindole-3-carbinol, a compound that helps the liver break down estrogen into more benign components. The detoxifying qualities of these cruciferous vegetables make them an excellent choice for women with dense breasts.
In Your Twenties?
You are not too young to have a base-line check on cellular activity of your breasts. Women over 50 are the largest group affected by the 2800 new case of breast cancer every year, yet, two-thirds of women aged 20-39 don’t realize that breast cancer is the most common cancer in their age group.
Become familiar with the signs of change in the breast that might indicate a warning as early as possible.
The Home Physical Exam
Medical imaging is considered the most effective way to screen for breast cancer, however, most breast cancers are first detected by a physical breast exam. This includes both self breast exams, where a woman notices a lump herself, or a clinical breast exam performed by a doctor during a routine screening.
The Modern Way To Check Breast Cell Activity
A wonderful method for cell activity the thermograph or thermascan uses infrared heat detection. Philip Hoekstra will teach us all about this technology. You can find him in Michigan at Therma-Scan, the world’s premier source for the analysis and reporting of medical thermology.
Founded in 1972, Dr Philip Hoekstra comes from a family history of pioneers in the field. With unrelenting commitment to innovation, integrity and the highest ethical, technical and professional standards in the practice of diagnostic infrared imaging, Dr Hoekstra and his staff respond quickly and can guide you to experienced and well trained providers in your region.
Therma-scan staff hold proficiency and skill levels certified by the American Board of Thermology in oncology, neuroscience and vascular thermology. Dr Hoekstra calls Therma-scan completely a clinical and scientific procedure when taking and reading images which is not dependent upon artistic skill.
Their facility has analyzed and reported more than one million patient studies for more than forty network partners worldwide, all using medical-grade digital infrared cameras and imaging technique according to our rigorous standards.
Therma-Scan is medical grade. All stages of data transmission and storage are compliant with HIPAA regulations. Their methodology has five distinct steps of quality control in analyzing each patient’s study. The analytic technique is derived from the Marseille System to encompass all four diagnostic elements; pattern recognition, thermal energy differential, response to a standardized functional challenge (the Cold Stress) and time-based evolution. The Marseille System provides results of breast thermology on the standardized ‘TH’ scale. Medical practitioners appreciate the practical clinical concordance of the ‘TH’ scale with X-ray mammography’s BI-RADS®.
You Have Time To Make Educated Decisions
Breast cancer does not just show up one day, it takes up to eight years for a 10 millimeters size tumor to become detectable by x-ray or digital mammography. Thermography, a non-invasive method to check the breast tissue, does not crush or injure this sensitive organ by using a camera to take a few photographs from different angles.
The Infrared mammography works screens for new blood vessel development around a tumor, a process called angiogenesis from 5 to 8 years before the cells grow large enough to be seen by x-ray mammography. Breast cancers undergo angiogenesis when they are less than 1 millimeter in size (0.16 millimeters) and, in fact, cannot grow larger than about 1 millimeter without a substantial network of angiogenic blood vessels growing into it. All this happens 2-4 years or more before x-ray mammography is useful.

FROM OUR LIVE CHAT SESSION
Bill Henderson interviews
Linda Bamber, a naturopathic doctor who has founded an organization dedicated to bringing women (and men) helpful information on breast cancer using thermograms. Her organization is called Breast Research Awareness and Support (BRAS). Linda has found that thermograms help women detect cancer long before mammograms with none of the discomfort and danger associated with mammograms. She and Bill agree that the primary cause of most breast cancers is root canal-filled teeth and other dental toxin problems. Linda’s website his http://www.BreastResearchAwareness.com. In the Cancer-in-the-News segment, Bill discusses a Vitamin D study and a study on the effects on the brain from using cell phones.
