before it's news


The disease was virtually non-existent throughout the whole country. Only one in 10,000 women in China will die from it, compared to that terrible figure of one in 12 in Britain and the even grimmer average of one in 10 across most Western countries. It is not just a matter of China being a more rural country, with less urban pollution. In highly urbanized Hong Kong , the rate rises to 34 women in every 10,000 but still puts the West to shame


According to figures from the World Health Organization, the number of men contracting prostate cancer in rural China is negligible, only 0.5 men in every 100,000. In England, Scotland and Wales , however, this figure is 70 times higher. Like breast cancer, it is a middle-class disease that primarily attacks the wealthier and higher socio-economic groups, those that can afford to eat rich foods.


both men and women should learn something from this article.

Diest is the main cause of cancer. In centeral and eastern Russia, cancer is almost non-existant but on the other hand heart desease is very high. And it is all down to the diet.

Because in China most of them eat very healthy all-natural food they grow themselves. In western countries we eat fake processed "food" on the shelves of supermarkets that isn't really food at all.

If you look at breast cancer, the breasts are mostly fat. Where does bad food go?

Even women who eat healthy and exercise get cancer.

I was going to suggest that, but my 28yo wife had no breasts and still got it. Thankfully we caught it in time and she beat it. Been a few months cancer free now.

Like another poster said, it has to do with the diet, we are already damage goods when it comes to American diet for the last three generations.

Our bodies are polluted and can not work as it was intended when it comes to fight diseases on its own.

We ALL produce cancer cells everyday, but our immune system takes care of any damage, as we keep poisoning our bodies with the crap we eat so our immune system suffers, it can happen to anybody

One in 12 in the UK die of breast cancer? Utter Bullcrap.


The crude mortality rate shows that there were around 37 breast cancer deaths for every 100,000 women in the UK and less than 1 for every 100,000 men.

www.cancerresearchuk.org...

37 in 100,000 = 0.00444 in 12 = 3.7 in 10,000.
One in 12? Utter bullcrap.



In highly urbanized Hong Kong , the rate rises to 34 women in every 10,000 but still puts the West to shame
False. See above. Death rate in the UK is 3.7 in 10,000. According to your "source" Hong Kong has a death rate almost 10 times higher than the UK.

Somebody at beforeitsnews is very poor at math.

According to the Susan B. Komen race thing, Asians are also the least likely to get breast cancer

According to your source race probably does not have much to do with it and Asians show only slightly lower rates than Hispanics and American Indians.


Race is not considered a factor that might increase a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer. However, the rates of Breast cancer differences developing and dying from the disease differ among ethnic groups. This may be due to differences in specific risk factors, the biology of the breast cancer or in breast cancer screening rates and treatment. The differences in screening rates could be due to the cost of health insurance and/or lack of awareness about screening tests and access to screening facilities

It also says nothing about the gross misrepresentations (lies) in the OP.

the OP was not lying - the stats for the UK are that about 1 in 12 women will contract BC,
It is a rare disease in Japan and possibly China,
Japanese women who move to Western countries will within 5 years be at the same risk of the disease as the locals.
Why ? Diet possibly ?

Read the OP again.

0.00444 in 12 die in the UK.


I agree that diet (and lifestyle) are important. China is becoming more westernized and with that, its cancer rates are rising but the OP is full of bad math (lies).

Ethnicity

Breast cancer rates do vary among ethnic groups, but the reasons why aren't so clear. For example, 1 in 40 Ashkenazi Jewish women has abnormal BRCA1 and BRCA2 (breast cancer) genes. Compare this with the general population, where the rate is just 1 in 650. This puts Ashkenazi women at higher risk for early-onset breast cancer, even when they don't have a family history of cancer. You can see why for Ashkenazi women early detection and genetic counseling are especially important.

In the U.S., breast cancer risk is highest among Caucasian women, followed in order by African American, Asian American, Hispanic, and Native American women. Across all ages, Caucasian women are more likely to develop breast cancer than African American women. But for some reason, African American women under age 40 have slightly higher rates of breast cancer than Caucasian's in the same group.




There is alot of great factual information at the above link:


Breast Cancer Risks You Can Control
Hormones
Bodyweight
Exercise
Alcohol consumption
Radiation exposure
Other risks being studied
Breast Cancer Risks You Can't Control
Gender
Age
Medical history
Family history
Ethnicity
Genetics
Genetic counseling


Here Is an example of what factors lower or raise the risk of developing breast cancer.(same link)



Hormones

Menstruation, menopause, and children

Scientists know for sure that hormones play a key role in determining breast cancer risk. The two important female hormones are estrogen and progesterone. They figure prominently in when start your periods, have babies, and experience menopause. The bottom line is that the longer you're exposed to these hormones, the greater your risk of developing breast cancer. Here's why:

Menstruation—The younger you are when you start your period, the higher your risk for breast cancer. This is because your body will have been exposed to female hormones longer. For each year after age 11 that you started your period, your risk of developing breast cancer decreases 20 percent.

Menopause—The older you are when you stop menstruating, the higher your risk. Once again, your body will have been exposed to female hormones longer. For example, women who start menopause before age 45 have one-half the risk of developing breast cancer compared to women who begin menopause after 55.

Childbirth—The risk of getting breast cancer is about 1.4 times higher for women who've never had children when compared to those who have. This is because women who've never been pregnant will have had a period every month, exposing them to female hormones longer.

Age at childbirth—The younger you are when you have your first child, the lower your risk for breast cancer. The risk for women who first give birth after age 30 is two to five times higher than for women who have their first child before age 18.

Breastfeeding—Studies suggest that nursing does have some affect on breast cancer risk. But a woman needs to have breastfed children for years to significantly reduce her risk.

My opinion:

What do orientals have in their diet in FAR greater numbers than westerners?

Iodine.

The US says her 100-150 MICROgrams a day. In Japan, they get an average of 12.5 MILLIgrams a day!!

The breasts, thyroid and prostate are the biggist consumers of iodine. And here in the west, not only do we basically not get any, we consume other halides (flouride, chlorine, bromine) that compete for the same receptor sites that iodine needs, since iodine is a halide as well.

Vitamin D3 also plays a big role.

Iodine also cures polycystic ovary disease.

Remember, back in the day, docs had a saying: "If ye not know the reason why, prescribe ye therefor K and I..."

I personally suppliment with 6.25 milligrams of Lugols a day. I put it in my water.

I don't give medical advice. I just report what I've seen and give my opinion.

I wouldn't be so sure about the quality of food in China. Yes, they probably eat more vegetables and less meat but the food is also cooked in a lot of oil. In addition, the vegetables are grown in soil that contains dangerous pesticides and herbicides. They also use "night soil".

I think you need to factor in that Asian women don't use deodorants and anti-antiperspirants which contain aluminum. To me, this is an important consideration as this has been linked to breast cancer. The aluminum is absorbed into the lymph nodes under the arm.

Different regions of the world have different leading causes of specific cancers. I believe the Asian diet leads to high gastric cancers. I came across a site which has way too much info to post. According to this site, Denmark and France have much higher rates of cancer as a whole than any other country, including the USA. www.wcrf.org...

On the breast cancer rates, here is what the information presented stated


www.wcrf.org...

The countries with the top 20 highest incidence of breast cancer are given in the table below.
•Belgium has the highest rate of breast cancer, followed by Denmark and France.
•The number of cases of breast cancer diagnosed in 2008 is equally spread between more and less developed countries (around 50% for each).
•The highest incidence of breast cancer is in Australia and New Zealand, Northern Europe and Northern America; and the lowest incidence in South-Central Asia and, Middle and Eastern Africa.



The main (www.wcrf.org...) site has four categories with each catgegory listing more specific data:

General world cancer statistics

Data for cancer frequency by country

Data on specific cancers

Data comparing more and less developed countries

One in 12 is perhaps diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK but that's because it is horribly over diagnosed.

Even official figures show that for every one life saved because of breast cancer screening, 3 more women undergo treatment unnecessarily.

Does breast screening do more harm than good?


Around 1,300 lives are saved every year by mammography, which women are invited to undergo between the ages of 50 to 70, said the review, which recommends that screenings should continue.

But 4,000 women will undergo unnecessary treatment, including surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, for a cancer they would not otherwise have known about and which would have done them no harm in their lifetime. Some breast cancers are so tiny and slow growing that they would never be a threat to a woman's health, the review says.

The Guardian


The UK medics who screen for breast cancer have the mindset that a diagnosis of risk of future breast cancer is the same as the disease itself.


Healthy people are being harmed by routine over-diagnosis of breast cancer and osteoporosis, experts have warned.

In 2009, the last year for which figures are available, more than two million women were screened for breast cancer in the UK with a total of 48,417 cases diagnosed.

At the heart of the problem is the "intuitive belief" in the value of early diagnosis, they wrote, which has meant that "Increasingly we’ve come to regard simply being ‘at risk’ of future disease as being a disease in its own right."

"Screening programmes are detecting early cancers that will never cause symptoms or death, sensitive diagnostic technologies identify 'abnormalities' so tiny they will remain benign, while widening disease definitions mean people at ever lower risks receive permanent medical labels and lifelong treatments that will fail to benefit many of them."

The Telegraph


In other words, for every one 1 women saved by breast screening, another 3 unnecessarily undergo extensive cancer treatment, often losing breasts, even though the 'abnormality' would never have become cancerous and was often tiny and benign to begin with.

Something is wrong with breast cancer screening in the UK.
