Breast Cancer. Can Your Poor Diet Be You Biggest Risk Factor?
The more calories we eat, especially calories from junk food, the harder our body’s metabolism has to work; thus giving off more free radicals. The free radicals attack the cells in the body, causing greater damage to tissue, which increases the rate of all cancers. Tran’s fatty acids and unsaturated fats such as corn oil go rancid quickly, causing free radicals. Some studies show that a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables reduces Breast Cancer risk by 46%. According to Samuel Epstein, M.D. (cancer risk specialist), drinking milk from cows given bovine growth hormone increases breast cancer risk. BGH is given to nearly all conventional cows.
Other Risk Factors:
Charring, frying, flame broiling or barbequing meat at temperatures between 300-500 degrees Fahrenheit increases cancer risk.
Women who have more than one drink of alcohol per day have higher risk of breast cancer.
Harvard Nurse Health Study analyzed data from 166,388 women and found that moderate exercise, 7 hours per week has a 20% reduction in all cancers.
Obesity is a huge risk factor for all cancers, especially breast. Fat cells produce and store estrogen thus causing more estrogen dominance.
EMF radiation from microwaves, 5G towers, cell phones, computers, hair dryers, curling irons, clock radios, and TVs emits strong frequencies that stimulate cancer growth.
Using under wire bras and antiperspirant deodorants block lymph node circulation and prevent us from sweating. Sweating removes toxins from the body so they don’t accumulate in the breast tissue.
Xenoestrogens: pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, HRT, oral contraceptives, petroleum based products, plastics are also factors.
Insulin resistance which is caused by consuming too much refined sugar.
Adrenal Androgen deficiency particularly DHEA and high cortisol levels.
Hypothyroidism increases breast cancer risk.
Low melatonin levels increase breast cancer risk. “Studies suggest that breast cancer cells are suppressed by 75% with melatonin. Melatonin can be purchased at health food stores and show not exceed 1 mg sublingually” –
