Experts: 1 in 3 Breast Cancers Avoidable


www.cbsnews.com

"Many breast cancers are fueled by estrogen, a hormone produced in fat
tissue. So experts suspect that the fatter a woman is, the more estrogen
she's likely to produce, which could in turn spark breast cancer."

Let's put 2 + 2 together and stay alive. Here's for women:

Check to see if you ...are overweight or obese at any BMI calculator. (see ref below) It would appear that as the population average weight continues to increase, the increased fat production of estrogens is leading to more cancers.

Arimidex is the most popular way to block estrogen production for women with estrogen stimulated breast cancer. Check to see how painful and depressing the use of Arimidex has been for some women (including yours truly) at the reference below.

Bottom line: get in shape as soon as possible, or your lifestyle can deteriorate into "life is not worth living anymore." according to women on Arimidex.

Learn from my mistake. I suggest you stay away from foods containing estrogen, and eat more foods that inhibit it.

I'm mainly replying to bump your post, I'm surprised it didn't get any replies. I just happened upon this thread because I wanted to get a better look at your avatar pic and see if that was some type of kitten resting on the boot or another animal. Either way he or she looks very tired and in need of a hug.

Anyway, I found your post very interesting and something I've never heard of. I wonder if a higher level circulating estrogens due to a disease would also put one at risk. I'll have to check that out. Good post!

Its more complicated then this.
I would argue 99% is avoidable, and 90% of cancers are reversible, it just that medical science is looking in the wrong place.

I agree with what you are saying, I know there are many cures out there. The thing I found interesting about the estrogen was how it related to weight; more weight more estrogen. We know hormone pills put a person at greater risk for breast cancer. If a person was at risk for breast cancer due to obesity, I would think it would be easy motivation for them to lose weight.

This makes me scratch my head because I've known or had friends who have known many, many women who have had breast cancer and the one thing they had in common.......average weight to very slender. Not one overweight person.

Yes, please do. I have a few ideas, which would sound like a stretch, so I would rather hear you first.

I am also interested in hearing your ideas.
Lets start with this:
1. Higher estrogen levels are linked to a higher rate of cancer.
But is it the cause? Or is something else at play?
2. If estrogen levels corralate with cancer, but estrogen is needed, what is the cutting point?
What happens above said cutting point? Why? Back to 1) is somehing else at play?
3. Think. What else could be at play?

If that's true...why is it I've only known skinny women that got breast cancer?
Just my personal experience...that's bunk.

ha good point.
my viewpoint:
thyroid activity is not the cause but the symptom. ponder that.

I'm thinking the hormones in regular grocery store meat and milk. I recall reading that those hormones contribute to hyperthyroidism, ok....so that would account for the abundance of slender women getting breast cancer, BUT that seems like a weak link because many are vegetarian. I don't know, and my brain is shut down, (its almost 5am) tell us Bblaaz. Stop holding out! Lol

You are going in the right direction. Why does cancer usually manifest at over 30?
But more over 40?
Is it to do with long term exposure to toxins delosited in body fat (this is regardless of skinnyness, eerone has bodyfat)?MOre body fat, more likely toxic contamination.
But eve. With less body fat, roxin accumaltion is acute.
Dont forget, cancer is an inumo response, self protect machanism gone haywire.

I think iodine deficiency is the cause.

Could very well be one cause, but what causes ionide deficiency?

Not having enough iodine in your diet plus...

Iodine chelates heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum and halogens such as fluoride and bromide.

So the the more you have of these the more iodine you need to eliminate them and the less you have for other vital functions.

Glandular tissue needs four times the level of iodine to function...
...and is the most vulnerable to cancers...
...the breasts are glands.

Why did the American Cancer Society suddenly change it's stance today and recommend that women wait until their older for Mammograms, and to get them less frequently?

Source: www.cnn.com...

Could it be that the A.C.S. being influenced by the medical industry, in order to drive up long-term profits, since early diagnosis isn't as profitable?

Define "toxin" and how they are objectively measured in the context you use the word.
