Black Rice Has Anti-metastatic Breast Cancer Activity

2018-10-30T20:15:28-05:00

The Power of Food   The power of food. It’s huge. I remember back when a book came out called Food Is Your Best Medicine, and this concept gets more fortified daily. But it’s complex. I am sharing with you an article on black rice and how consuming it can make breast cancer cells less likely to kill you. In other words, black rice contains a compound that is proven to have anti-metastatic effects on breast cancer cells, even ones programmed to act aggressively. So if you had a history of breast cancer or currently are battling it, this is a [...]

Computer-Aided Digital Mammography Has Issues, so what now for our breasts?

2018-10-12T17:04:53-05:00

CAD A number of years ago my breast cancer doctor (I had breast cancer 22 years ago) was very excited about a better way to image the breasts, especially for women like myself with what they call, denser breasts. This upgraded form of mammography is called computer-aided detection (CAD). That’s what I was getting when I did go in for follow up imaging. Improvement? But a new study now shows that CAD doesn’t improve accuracy of detecting cancer at all. And in fact, what’s even more concerning, the new study has found that radiologists tended to miss more cancers when they [...]

Cancers in Kids Happens Earlier and Faster so what can we do?

2018-10-24T19:04:11-05:00

Pediatric Malignancies Pediatric malignancies develop early in life (some probably in the womb called fetal origin of adult disease) and over a much shorter time period than it takes for adults to develop cancer. This suggests, says a consensus statement from Europe (European Network for Cancer Research in Children and Adolescents 7th Framework Programme) that fewer and stronger events are required for cancer to happen in children.   What are the risk factors: Like environmental exposures. Food. Stress. Nutrient deficiencies. Methylation issues. Gut issues. Too many antibiotics too early, not followed up by probiotics and fermented foods. Compared with adult cancers, most [...]

Solvents, Fertility, Cancer, and Home Safety

2019-02-14T13:58:30-05:00

Solvents are nasty and pretty much everywhere. At home. At work. The chemicals – benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene – are ubiquitous. I warned about them in Hormone Deception 15 years ago.Today in Environmental Health News they have been officially dubbed endocrine disruptors, even at the "every day low levels" we are ALL exposed to. Especially at HOME. HOME is not just where the HEARTH is – but where the SOLVENTS are. Many health problems like asthma, low birth weights, faulty sperm and infertility, heart disease, preterm births, liver and kidney disease, and even cancer – can be rooted in early [...]

5 Reasons Why Breast Cancer Is On The Rise

2018-10-31T18:12:38-05:00

The number of breast cancer cases in American women is expected to jump 50% by 2030, according to a study by researchers from the National Cancer Institute. The increase is driven mostly by a marked increase in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive tumors and in the number of cases in women older than 70 years. Why? 1. More endocrine disruptors in air, food and water. 2. Poor hormone balance as we age. Less hormones is not better, it puts us more at risk. But balance is key. No one is testing these lady's hormone levels and ratios to each other and improving them [...]

What food can you inexpensively purchase at any market, which keeps hormones safe and makes ‘immortal’ cancer cells die?

2019-04-03T09:58:00-05:00

For years many of us have used this food as a small thoughtless garnish on top of other foods, without realizing the pharmaceutical actions and magic that lay within its tasty cells? It’s difficult to believe that the lowly parsley holds such amazing benefits. Parsley is one of the highest food sources of an amazing flavonoid called apigenin. Celery and chamomile are also other common sources of apigenin, but parsley contains the highest amount of this compound. Apigenin is turning out to be an easy to eat and inexpensive protector against cancer. Here’s the back copy. One way that cancer cells [...]

How to Minimize BRCA Gene Risks for Some Women

2019-02-01T20:56:18-05:00

I have many patients who upon discovering that they carry a BRCA gene mutation consider bilateral breast mastectomies. But the BRCA genes also carry increased risk of multiple cancers, from pancreatic to melanoma, and other diseases, so you can’t have a total body-ectomy. But you can put your baby to your breast. Two studies support that breastfeeding protects against breast cancer if the mother has BRCA1, but not if she has BRCA2, in fact having children increases the risk in women with the BRCA2 genetic mutation. The lack of protection for carriers of the BRCA2 mutation suggests that the biological pathway [...]
