While attending college in the late 1970's a University Professor told us that they were starting to see an increase in female enrollment -- not just
the school I attended, but across the nation. Male students clearly outnumbered female students in all of my classes for all 4 years --- hey, I wasn't
The majority of women back then were stay-at home-moms (a term that did not yet exist), at least in the Northeastern U.S. where I lived and was raised
and educated. They gradually started entering the workforce full time in the 1980's, at which time the number of college educated women increased.
He said that as female enrollment increased, women would postpone childbearing and that by the year 2000+ we would start to see more women dying at an
earlier age. He said this was because the female body was intended/designed to reproduce between the very late teens to mid-late 30's with 3 full-term
pregnancies by age 30.
He said that women who have 3 full-term pregnancies by their 30th birthday and who also breastfeed each child for at least one-year rarely ever/less
likely to develop female cancers. I do not fall into that category as I didn't have 3 full-term pregnancies by the time I turned 30. And, I battled
breast cancer years ago.
I am okay now, but I do not feel that I'll live as long as my grandmothers and my mom and my 14 aunts who all had 3 full-term pregnancies by the time
they were 30 and with no interrupted pregnancies.
Both of my grandmothers lived to their late 70's and my mom and all of my aunts are between their early 80's to early-90's, as well as my 85 year old
mother-in-law and none of them have ever had a cancer diagnosis. Not one. They all had 3 full-term pregnancies by age 30.
I also wonder about the vaccine given to us baby-boomers in the 1950's -1960's that my mom and grandparents and that none my relatives received.
Also, alcohol was not an ingredient in any skin/hair products, especially body lotions and sunscreens back then. My mom and relatives didn't even grow
up with these products. The point is that a Holistic Doctor once told me I could not cure cancer if I used products with any type of alcohol listed as
an ingredient -- which they did not use back then.
Anything we put on our skin enters our bloodstream within 20 seconds and the alcohol in these products weaken the immune system regardless of one's
age and health. I believe a change in my diet and eliminating all hair/skin products containing alcohol might be why the breast cancer I had years ago
has not returned. I also had the mercury removed from my teeth and only go to Biological-Holistic Dentists.
I am blood-related to 37 women, female cousins and sisters included, and none of them born before 1950 have had cancer, only those born after 1950.
Not one of the 15 born after 1950 had 3 full-term pregnancies by age 30, and so far half of us, including myself and sisters have struggled with
This professor also said if a pregnancy or pregnancies are terminated or interrupted/miscarriages chances of developing or dying from a female cancer
increase dramatically. He had a PhD in Anatomy & Physiology and had been instructing at the University for over 20 years.
So, I asked my GYN/OB, who was about the same age as this University Professor, and he said that was also his firm belief. He additionally stated that
educated women tend to postpone childbearing until their late 20's -- mid 30's, and as a result, we would see a drastic increase in female-related
cancers after the year 2000 and going forward, as the women aged. Again, this was said to me back in the late 1970's.
About one year ago I read an article claiming this was a proven scientific fact. But, I do not remember the title of the article or where I saw it. I
do not know if this is actually a proven fact. But, I thought I would share what I had been told almost 35 years ago, as unfortunately, it's coming
Thanks OP for bringing about this awareness -- S&F .... JANA
