SHOCKING STUDY IN 2016: Chemo Kills up to 51% of Patients within 30 days

cause of death

For decades now, many scientists have been raising red flags that chemotherapy can oftentimes do more harm than good, and in a surprisingly large number of cases, it simply does not work.

Dr. Hardin B. Jones, a former Professor of Medical Physics and Physiology at Berkeley, California, studied the impact of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery on the survival rates of cancer patients, and found that instead of prolonging lives, these treatments actually make the patients die almost four times sooner. This was found more than 40 years ago, and yet not much has changed in the way the hospitals treat cancer.

For terminal patients as well, a 2016 study in the peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society CANCER found that living at home instead of being treated at the hospital prolonged their lives by about 45%.

And now, a new study was just published earlier this month that analyzed 30-day mortality rates caused by the treatment itself: chemotherapy and chemotherapy plus radiation.

Cancer Study: Early Mortality Rate Caused by Chemotherapy

The study, published in The Lancet’s Oncology, looked at 23,228 breast and 9,634 lung cancer patients in England.

The results showed high death rates linked to the treatment, increased use of SACTs (systematic anticancer therapies – cytotoxic chemotherapy). The researchers stated it was due “poor clinical decision making.”

“Patients dying within 30 days after beginning treatment with SACT are unlikely to have gained the survival or palliative benefits of the treatment, and in view of the side-effects sometimes caused by SACT, are more likely to have suffered harm,” states the study.

The researchers write that while there a few patients who may have benefited from SACTs, there were too many who were harmed by it, or even killed by the treatment.

In 2014 , the year the study was researched, almost 1,400 patients in England died within 30 days of their first chemotherapy treatment. In some hospitals, the mortality rate was significantly higher than in the others: up to 51% of breast cancer patients died in Milton Keynes (although the number of total patients was small), and up to 29% of lung cancer patients died in Lancashire Teaching Hospitals.

“Simply reducing doses of or avoiding SACT altogether would reduce or eliminate instances of treatment-related early mortality.”

The study was done after noticing a clear lack of data analyzing the risk versus gain of using chemotherapy and mortality rates caused by it in the first 30 days of treatment. As the researchers state, this is the first time this topic has been brought up and investigated at a national level.

The “million dollar questions” (or perhaps “billion dollar” since this is the cancer treatment industry we’re talking about) raised by the researchers included: is chemotherapy use still advocated based on small clinical studies — most sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry?

And it has never been fully studied how well it works in a real hospital setting?

Do Most Hospitals Know What They Are Even Doing?

The study points out two problems. One is that mortality rate is high due to poor clinical decisions. Perhaps because in most hospitals chemotherapy is given in a one-size-fits all manner or a fixed-dose with no consideration to a patient’s health history, and characteristics such as weight and age.

In England’s database, it was found that for many patients, the doctors did not include why the chemotherapy was given, and the overall health of the patient and the severity of their cancers was never recorded.

Both of these factors, as the study points out, could significantly change the outcome for these patients.

In America, another study found that doctors gave palliative chemotherapy to terminal cancer patients, and in at least two-third of cases, the patient did not know that the treatment could not cure them, but it only alleviated some symptoms, such as pain.

Knowing that the treatment could not help them in the end, would they have searched for alternative options that may have worked better?

Death Rates from Chemotherapy Are Rarely Properly Documented

The second issue the study found is that mortality rates are hard to analyze because they are not well or properly recorded.

In England’s case, many dates of deaths were simply missing from the national database. Some were documented twice, and the two dates did not match.

 

800px-Death_certificate_of_John_Otto_Siegel,_front_view

In America, the national statistic of cancer mortality comes from the death certificates. This is what the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) along with the doctors use to see how many people are die from cancer, and how many people die from the treatment. Unfortunately, the National Cancer Institute reports “cancer” as the cause of death for almost all cancer patients, regardless of what actually caused it, as pointed out in a 2002 article.

This article raised concern that “cancer death rates are systematically underestimated, in that many patients who die as a result of cancer treatment do not have cancer recorded as the underlying cause of death.”

For example, they studied patients who died within one month after a cancer-surgery between 1994 and 1998, and 41% of these deaths were not properly recorded. The authors write that cancer treatment was the likely cause of death.

“…Many deaths subsequent to 1 month after cancer-directed surgery may be similarly miscoded.”

Unfortunately, even though the study points out that many death certificates quote some condition other than cancer as the cause of death (such as liver failure), they want the cause of death to be just “cancer.” That would lead to further incorrect data as many patients do die from cancer treatments, and liver failure that would not happen from cancer, is often caused by the toxic chemo drugs. But what this study does show us, is that because of a 1999 revision in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), instead of a cancer or cancer-related death, death certificates now have to show the “underlying” cause of each death, such as: thromboembolism (blood vessel obstruction), infections, organ failures, and hemorrhage (excessive bleeding).This leads to improper classification and underestimated cancer death rates and statistics.

How many patients die from the treatment instead of cancer?

That is hard to say until every doctor and hospital begins classifying the causes of deaths correctly. Until then, it is important to keep studies like this in mind when considering pros and cons of starting a chemotherapy treatment.

There are more and more alternative options out there – and for many, they do work. (Just look up testimonials from the Nutritional Oncology Research Institute, or even studies on carotenoids antioxidants derived from natural sources, and even IV curcumin and sodium bicarbonate).

“I think it’s important to make patients aware that there are potentially life threatening downsides to chemotherapy. And doctors should be more careful about who they treat with chemotherapy,” writes one of the study’s co-authors, Professor David Dodwell, Institute of Oncology, St James Hospital, Leeds, UK.

Sugar Linked to Breast and Lung Cancer

Sugar Linked to Breast and Lung Cancer

Introduction

Sugar is a sad staple in the modern diet. It is controversial, also, with many people saying we’ve overdramatized the detriment from sugar. Many experts noting that “sugar is found in natural foods.” While this does hold true, it is unlikely the sugar in apples is causing our health infrastructure to fall apart. It is more likely the refined, dense sugars found in processed foods. Nothing wrong with a tomato, but ketchup is an entirely different store because it condenses the sugar experience generally in the cancer causing form of high fructose corn syrup..

Sugar Is Making Us Fat and Sick

Sugar is making us fat and sick. Sugar is making us diabetic. And now sugar might be giving women breast cancer. According to a study at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, that’s exactly what might be happening.

The findings, published in the Jan. 1 online issue of Cancer Research,demonstrated dietary sugar’s effect on an enzymatic signaling pathway known as 12-LOX (12-lipoxygenase).

“We found that sucrose intake in mice comparable to levels of Western diets led to increased tumor growth and metastasis, when compared to a non-sugar starch diet,” said Peiying Yang, Ph.D., assistant professor of Palliative, Rehabilitation, and Integrative Medicine. “This was due, in part, to increased expression of 12-LOX and a related fatty acid called 12-HETE.”

Past studies have shown a connection between sugar intake and breast cancer, but much of that was focused on sugar causing inflammation, which inevitably stimulates cancer. This current connection, however, as reported by manderson.org, is much more direct.

“The current study investigated the impact of dietary sugar on mammary gland tumor development in multiple mouse models, along with mechanisms that may be involved,” said co-author Lorenzo Cohen, Ph.D., professor of Palliative, Rehabilitation, and Integrative Medicine. “We determined that it was specifically fructose, in table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup, ubiquitous within our food system, which was responsible for facilitating lung metastasis and 12-HETE production in breast tumors.”

Sugar isn’t good for us because it is an strong acid. We can debate this data in terms of legitimacy, but it is difficult to debate the overall dire health implications caused from over-abundance of sugar being ingested. Due to this, it is hardly a point worth debating: Lower your acidic sugar intake, choose natural high fiber low- sugar sources from cucumber, avocado, celery, tomato, lemon, lime, peppers, broccoli, spinach, grapefruit, and coconut.  You will be healthier because you will be less acidic and more alkaline according to my published research.

This study, however, is a one of a kind study linking sugar directly to breast and lung cancer. In some ways, it is ground-breaking. From my scientific viewpoint, it is simply another research study validating my 30 years of research that we need to limit any refined sugars, complex locarbohydrates, high-sugar fruit and vegetables.   Especially, stay away from sucrose, maltose, lactose, fructose, and any other sugar that ends in “ose.”  Stay organic and plant-based with high fiber, low sugar  foods and you will lower your risk not only for breast and lung cancer but many more western-diet ailments.

Sugar has long been associated with cancer. The pH Miracle diet (a low carbohydrate and low protein diet) has been linked to preventing and reversing cancer.  The core component being that cancer cells thrive from sugar, which stands to reason that cutting the sugar supply off from what you eat and what you drink may cause cancer cells to shrink and die.

How can you cut down on sugar?

First, understand that sugar is a cycle of addiction exactly the same as cigarette and alcohol addiction. Once you cut ALL sugars out of your diet, you will stop craving them. My research and the research of others backs ups this claim. Low carbohydrate dieters often talk about not “being hungry.” And the truth is, it isn’t that they aren’t hungry, it is just that their body only craves what it needs to survive and thrive. Second, reach for high fiber low carbohydrate solutions. Leafy green salads, sprouts, and grasses, low sugar fruit and vegetables are a great example of a low-carb, high fiber experience. This will release electrical energy in the form of electrons into your body slowly so that you don’t bottom out and end up craving a donut. I like to start my day off with a green drink of spinach, celery and cucumber and a shake with avocado, spinach, celery, cucumber and salt.  You may even want to try a mixed green salad with green olive oil and lemon instead of s sugar-cereal or oatmeal.  Give it a try and feel the energy difference.

What Happens to ALL the Disappearing Can

12311128_1639530499647197_8412997691509003664_nWhat Happens to ALL the Disappearing Cancer Patients?

It’s been almost 20 years since I met my first disappearing patient — a nurse in her early 40s, let’s call her Kate. Kate was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a nurse, she had seen the results of breast cancer treatments. She was terrified, and determined. She was not heading for surgery, nor chemotherapy, nor radiation.

But Kate worked in a hospital. She worked with the doctors who diagnosed her cancer, and she worked with the surgeon, who wanted to schedule her into surgery “as soon as possible.”

The first thing Kate did was slow down. She did some research. It didn’t take her long to remind herself that in Canada, and in the USA, the treatments for cancer are akin to law. No hospital would dare deviate from the deadly three (cut, poison, burn).

Kate’s cancer was not large. She had been tested for cancer last year and no cancer was found. She knew it took many years for cancers to develop. At first, she was furious, “If it is here today, it must have been here last year. Why didn’t you find it last year?” It had not metastasized. It was not growing rapidly and was not affecting her health in any way. In theory, she had lots of time. So, she took some time.

But Kate didn’t look for magic cures. She didn’t search for the latest “cancer medicine.” She wasn’t interested in curing herself. She knew she was a nurse, not a doctor. She searched instead for the “cured” – patients who were diagnosed with cancer, and no longer had cancer. She knew from her work in the hospital, from conversations with patients, and with some staff, that these people existed — but from the perspective of the medical establishment, they seemed to disappear.

It didn’t take her long to find some patients who claimed they were cured. They hadn’t disappeared from life. They were eating, drinking, loving, and living full healthy and prosperous lives. But according to the medical records, they didn’t exist. They were “never cured.”

The medical system treated their cures as “anecdotal.” It ignored them. There was no attempt by any doctors to understand what happened to these cancer patients. They were no longer sick. The medical system looks after sick patients, treats sick patients. These patients were not sick.

Kate looked and listened. Her interest was not clinical science vs. anecdotal evidence. Her interest was personal. She talked, listened, compared stories. From several, she learned about a clinic that did not claim to cure cancer. It did not use medicines to treat cancers. But patients were cured, somehow. This clinic was not in Canada. It was not in the USA. She would have to go to Mexico to learn more.

There are lots of alternative treatment clinics in Mexico. Are some of them valid, using important techniques to cure cancers? Are some of them scams, wanting to take money from desperate clients? Do some of them have a cure that works sometimes, but might not work for her? Kate didn’t know. She did more research. She called the clinic.

The staff did not claim to cure cancer. Claiming to cure cancer is dangerous, even for a clinic outside of North America. They suggested Kate visit the clinic and see what happens there, no charge for a visit, but she would need to pay for her travel to Mexico. Kate had done her research. She had met and talked to patients whose cancers had disappeared.

Kate made her decision. She was familiar with cancer diagnosis techniques in Canada. She had undergone a physical examination, a mammogram, that detected a lump in her breast. Then she had a biopsy, where tissue was taken from the lump and was sent to a lab for analysis. The lab technician tested and examined the sample and issued a diagnosis “cancer” or “not cancer.” Once the diagnosis is issued, everybody swings into action. Kate knew that the mammogram had a high false positive rate and a false negative rate. Many people who are diagnosed with a “possible cancer” by a mammogram do not actually have cancer. She was also aware that cancer biopsies have a false positive rate and a false negative rate, as well. Her work in the hospital, with real patients, had made this very clear.

She didn’t really know for certain if she had cancer. Her surgeon, on the other hand, was still pressing her to schedule treatment.

Kate knew one thing. She had time. She cashed out some savings and booked a “holiday” in Mexico.

At the clinic, Kate was surprised that there was no “cancer diagnosis.” They did check the presence and size of the lump on her breast. But they didn’t repeat the biopsy. The clinic read her diagnostic reports, but did not investigate them further. There was instead a very thorough analysis completed by a suite of doctors. It took two full days of tests and interviews, if I remember correctly.

Kate was asked about her family’s medical histories. She gave blood samples. She was questioned extensively about her diet, about what she eats on a regular basis. What foods does she like and eat often. What foods does she not like and never eat. Doctors examined her lungs, her heart, liver, and other bodily organs with various tests. Her immune system was tested. Extensive interviews about her life, her work, her relationships, and more.

At the time I talked to Kate, I didn’t realize that she was not getting a “medical analysis,” she was actually getting a “healthicine analysis.” Her tests and questions fit perfectly to the hierarchy of healthicine: genetics, nutrition, cells, tissues, organs, bodily systems, body, mind, spirit, and community.

Kate’s genetics were analyzed through family history. There may have been further genetic analysis, I don’t remember all of the details. Her nutritional status was analyzed, not just by analyzing what she ate, and what she preferred to eat, but also by studying what she didn’t like to eat, what she deliberately never ate, what foods she believed she was allergic to. Her cells and tissues were analyzed directly, through blood samples and physical examination, and indirectly through medical history and other tests. Many of her organs were tested for healthiness. Her bodily systems, immune system, circulatory system, respiratory system, hormonal systems and more were analyzed and assessed. Her physical body was measured, weighed, and examined. Her mental health was assessed, as well as her spiritual healthiness. She was in good spirits, even in light of a potentially life threatening illness. Her community health was analyzed as well. Her family, her relationships with her children, her spouse, her parents, her work community, and more.

After a few days, Kate met with a group of doctors to discuss her health, not her illness, her healthiness. Diagnosing illness is difficult. Analyzing healthiness is more complex. It took several doctors and several hours for Kate to learn and understand what they had learned about her healthinesses and her unhealthinesses.

They then “prescribed” two weeks, if I remember correctly, of healthiness training, tailored to Kate’s specific situation. She spent the next two weeks at the clinic, learning to be healthier, not learning how to be “healthier in principle,” rather – learning what Kate needed to do to make her diet, her body, her mind, her spirits, and even her relationships with her communities healthier. She could not change her work community. But she could change how she reacted to and interacted with it – to improve her own health. After two weeks of learning at the clinic, her breast lump had started to shrink.

Kate went back to Canada, to put her learning into action. The lump disappeared. Her diagnosis was still there on paper. But her “cancer” had disappeared. She was retested at her hospital and no cancer was found.

Then Kate began to disappear.

When the surgeon asked again, she explained that she was not going to surgery. The surgeon looked away. He refused to look her in the eye after that.

But Kate didn’t disappear from her family. She went back to her family. She didn’t disappear from her job. She went back to her job. She disappeared from the cancer system. Her cancer disappeared, so, as a cancer patient, she disappeared.

Was she cured? We don’t know. There is no useful definition of a cancer cure. No medical or scientific test that can prove a patient has been cured of cancer. Our cancer treatment statistics have no count for people who are cured of cancer. Patients that are cured, whether they are cured with medicines or not, are not counted. No breast cancer patients are officially cured by medicine. If their cancer goes away without treatment, they disappear from statistics. If their cancer is killed by radiation, chemotherapy or surgery, they are not cured, they are a “survivor.” Everyone knows that cancer survivors are always waiting for the cancer to reappear. Their symptoms are in remission, but their cancer is not cured. They are not cured. With no proof of a cure, it might just be hidden.

Kate no longer has cancer. She paid, from her own pocket, for her trip to a clinic in Mexico. After the trip, her cancer disappeared. She had medical insurance. But her insurance wouldn’t pay for her trip. Insurance pays for treatments, not for cures. It pays for treatments, even if they fail. But it does not pay for success. Success disappears.

There are two ways for a cancer patient to disappear. You might be cured by health. Or you might be cured by a medicine that is not approved. In both cases, the medical system will ignore the cure, and ignore the patient.

In healthicine, there are no incurable diseases. If it is not curable – it is not a disease, it is a handicap, a disability, a deficiency, or simply an attribute of the person. All diseases can be cured by definition.

I have since met several cancer patients who have disappeared, and not just cancer patients. Maybe you have too? I’ve met more by internet, email, etc. There is no way for me to determine if a disappeared patient actually had cancer, if their treatment cured their cancer, if their body cured their cancer or if they still have cancer. We can only tell if there is another cancer diagnosis. Nothing can be told from the absence of a diagnosis.

There is no way for any doctor to tell either. There are no tests for a cancer cure. There is no way to recognize, much less document a cancer cure. There are no statistics for cancers cured.

Many cured patients don’t disappear quietly. They speak out. They write books and newspaper articles. They blog. But it doesn’t matter. They still don’t count. Once cured, they disappear. The medical system does not study their cases, does not study their diagnosis, does not study their cures. For chronic diseases, like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, even obesity, and many more, there are no techniques to document “cured patients.” As a result, there are no statistics for “cured patients” of any chronic illness.

Once they are cured, they disappear. Health doesn’t cure illness, it disappears illness. And medicine doesn’t count people who have disappeared.

HEALTH WARNING FOR ALL WOMEN!!!!! AND NOW MEN!

20 Acidic Cancerous Symptomologies of the BREAST TISSUES that Women and NOW MEN NEED to UNDERSTAND and Do Something About IT NOW!

The thermography and ultrasound pictures below is of Valentino, a Russian from woman from Moscow who was diagnosed with Inflammatory Ductal Cell Carcinoma with a 14.3cm tumor mass in the left breast. Each week our medical group took non-invasive/non-radioactive thermography and utlrasound pictures of her progress and in the seventh week the canerous tumor mass was gone and the breast tissue was non-canerous. She followed Dr. Young’s self-care to a sefl-cure, pH Miracle for Cancer protocol and reversed her medically diagnosed Ductal Cell Carcinoma in 7 weeks without chemo, radiation or surgery.

Women are always working hard to take care of their family, friends and work. But they seldom have time to think of or take care of themselves. Too often they ignore some of their acidic symtomologies because they don’t think it’s a big deal and don’t take the time to get their breasts examined once or twice a year via non-radioactive thermography for breast physiology and ultrasound for breast anatomy.

Though warning signs do not always mean a cancerous condition, women and NOW men need to pay attention to the followoing acidic symptomologies when they are persistent and progressive. The following 20 cancerous symptomologies that effect women and NOW men’s breasts are those worth bringing to your doctor or health care professional’s attention.

1. Breast Changes

If your nipple gets scaly or starts flaking, that could indicate Paget’s disease of the nipple, which is linked to an underlying cancerous condition in about 95% of cases. Any milky or bloody nipple discharge should also be checked out. In addition, dimpling of the skin over the breast, particularly if it looks like the skin on an orange is most often linked to an acidic inflammatory cancerous condition of the breast, a rare, usually aggressive cancerous condition characterized also by swollen, hot, red breasts. It is important to test the nipples using thermography to see in their is any significant temperature differences greater than 1 degree celcius.

2. Abnormal vaginal bleeding

Any bleeding, staining, little drops on your underwear, or big clots are abnormal and should be immediately evaluated by a health professional. Around menopause, abnormal bleeding is often tied to shifts in the endocrine system, though more serious problems could be the cause, which is why all abnormal vaginal bleeding should be checked.

3. Changes in vaginal discharge

Bloody, dark or smelly discharge is most likely a sign of out-fection. It’s best not to self-treat a discharge with over-the-counter acidic medications. A trans-vaginal ultrasound diagnositc examination is necessary to determine if the discharge is due to an out-infection or something more serious, such as a cancerous condition.

4. Unexplained Weight Gain or Loss

Weight loss by exercising and eating healthy alkaline foods and drinks should not be a concern. But if you suddenly lose more than 10 pounds without changing your diet or exercise habits, that could be caused by the body transforming body cells into blood cells, which is also know as body wasting due to congestion or damage to the intestinal villi where primary stem cells are made and then converted to blood and body cells.

5. A bloated belly

It’s common to feel bloated after eating or drinking an acidic constipating meal, especially during your menstrual cycle. But if you feel bloated and constantly full with no appetite for more than two weeks or after your period ends, you should have an abdominal thermography and ultrasound to see if there are any blockages.

6. Acute Fatigue

The American Cancer Society defines fatigue as “extreme tiredness that does not get better with rest.” So if you’re often fatigued, you are suffering from stage 1 acidosis and need to evaluate your lifestyle and diet. Leukemia, colon, or stomach cancer — which can cause blood loss, are what I refer to as stage 7 acidosis and may be the reason for your extreme fatigue. Fatigue is always a precursor to inflammation and inflammation is always a precursor to a cancerous condition. So fatigue is the body’s lack of life-force energy to remove its own acidic waste products that are building up in the connective and fatty tissues. This build-up of acidic waste from what you eat, what you drink and what you think is what causes gradual weight gain and fatigue and tiredness.

7. Change in the Appearance of a Mole

Keep an eye on any changes you notice on your skin all over your body. You can follow the ABCD method recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation and the American Academy of Dermatology to help detect possible problems:
If the mole is A, asymmetrical; B, has uneven borders; C, has changed in color; or D, changed in diameter, then you are eliminating acidic waste products through the pores of the skin which can lead to a cancerous condition. It is important to open up the channels of elimination to remove toxins or dietary and/or metabolic acids out through urination and defection rather than through the pores of the skin. Removing waste products through the skin is always problematic and is the cause of all skin problems.

8. Swelling in legs or persistent pain in joints

Swelling in one leg can mean a blood clot. If it’s in both legs, it could be a sign of lymphatic circulation blockage which may lead to kidney or liver dis-ease. Chronic or constant acidic pain in joints could mean something more serious than arthritis, such as latent tissue acidosis or sometimes diagnosed as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, which will require lymphatic drainage through massage, infrared sauna and colon hydrotherapy in order to improve circulation and then elimination via the bowels and kidneys. Remember that the lymphatic system is the vacum cleaner of acidic waste from the tissues and to function needs pleanty of water (up to 6 liters of alkaline water at a pH of 9.5) and exercise to pump acids out of the body via the pores of the skin or the urinary tract system.

9. Congestion or Constipation of the bowels

This is where health or ALL disease begins. A healthy core means a healthy body and especially healthy breasts. Breasts are primarily fatty tissues and a depository for acidic waste products that are NOT properly eliminated via the four channels of elimination – bowels. kidneys, lungs and skin. When the bowels are congested or constipated then toxins or acidic waste products from diet and metabolism seep into the blood and are then pushed out into the connective and fatty tissues, including the fatty breast tissues. Since acids are the cause of breast cancer, the focal point of breast cancer begins in the small and large bowels. Proper elimination of toxic acidic waste products is extremely important for a healthy body and healthy breasts. Ideally a woman or a man should be eliminating the bowels 6 tmes a day and at least 4 times a day to prevent ANY cancerous condition including breast cancer. Anything less than 4 bowel movements a day is a sign of constipation and a huge risk for breast cancer.

10. Big Breasts is a Big Risk for Breast Cancer 

Why? Because the body uses the fatty breast tissues as a depository for dietary and/or metabolic acids that are not properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – bowels, kidneys, lungs and skin. Thus, the bigger the breasts, the more potential acidic wastes can be deposited into the fatty breast tissues. This increases the risk for breast cancer in women who have big breasts. Today, 20 percent of all breast cancers diagnosis are men. Breast cancer is on the rise in men beacuse they are growing breasts as a result of their lack of exercise, stress, hormone laced foods, GMO foods and acidic diets. So the smaller the breasts the lower the risk for breast cancer in both women and men.

11. Persistent cough and shortness of breath

Any persistent cough — one that lasts more than 2 or 3 weeks and is not due to an allergy or upper respiratory outfection, or one that produces blood — needs to be checked via thermograhy, ultrasound and 3-D whole body functionality testing. What’s more, if you’re having continual or increased problems breathing, make an appointment to have these three tests done – full-body thermography, full-body ultra-sound and full-body 3-D functionality testing.

12. Change in Lymph Nodes

Swollen, firm lymph nodes are often caused by increase acidic which leads to poor blood and lymphatic circulation. Enlarged lymph nodes are the result of increased poor lymphatic circulation and the increase of toxic acidic waste products which have significantly built-up over time from an acidic lifestyle and diet. All cancerous conditons from lung, bowel, neck, and stomach always involves the lymphatic system and its inability to remove toxins from the connective tissues. It is important to improve blood and lymphatic circulation with an alkaline lifestyle and diet and especially increased hydration with alkaline water at a pH of at least 9.5. The increased alkaline hydration will help to reduce inflammaton and decrease lymph node swelling.

13. Breast Skin itching

When the skin of the breasts are itichy this is the result of dietary and metabolic acids being eliminated out of the breast tissue through the pores of the skin. You can scatch and scatch or use steroidal creams but this will not solve the problem. The way to solve acids being pushed out through the pores of the skin is to increase circualtion through super-hydration of alkaline water at a pH of 9.5.

14. Discoloration, spots or rash on the breast skin

When the body is throwing dietary and/or metabolic acids out through the pores of the breast skin this can cause irritation or stage 2 acidosis, white, red or brown spots on the breast as well as a rash.

15. Calcium deposits in the breast tissue

Calcium deposits can be seen with Ultrasound without harmful acidic radiation or stress and/or damage to the breast tissue via a mammogram. Calcium deposts are the chelation of metabolic and/or dietary acids that have not been properly eliminated through urination or defecation. The body will buffer these acids to protect the breast tissue from acidic breakdown. As acids built-up in the breast these acids spoil cells and begins the process of cellular degeneration or cancer. Calcium deposits on the breast show-up as white spots on Ultrasound.

16. Inflammatory ducts leads to Inflammatory ductal cell carcinoma
All inflammation is caused by dietary and/or metabolic acids which have not been properly eliminated through urination or defecation. When acids are NOT removed they spoil or ferment breast cells, even ductal cells which leads to inflammation and then to cancer or carcinoma. The inflammation of the breasts and ducts is seen via a breast thermography.

17. Breast lesions

Breast lesions or ulcerations are always the result of the body depositing dietary and/or metabolic acids into the fatty breast tissues when these toxic waste products are NOT being properly eliminated through urination, defecation, respiration or perspiration. These lesions or ulcerations are best seen by a breast Ultrasound.

18. Breast cysts

Breast cysts are the encapsulation of dietary and/or metabolic acids and are generally not considered cancer by current medical doctors. However cancer is NOT a cell but an acidic dietary and/or metabolic liquid which is cancer causing. Acids are poisons that posion body cells, including breast cells and are the cause of ALL cancerous conditions. The cyst is the body’s attempt to protect healthy breast tissue. Breast cysts are best identified with a breast Ultrasound.

19. Breast tumor

Breast turmors are the body’s defensive mechanism to stop the degeneration of breast cells. When breast cells have been spoiled by dietary and/or metabolic acids the body will create a protein called fibrin to form a tumor to encapsulate spoiled or rotten unhealthy cancerous cells. The formation of a turmor protects healthy breast cells from being spoiled by the unhealthy breast cells where one spoiled breast cell spoils another healthy cell, in a protective process I call the ‘domino effect.” Tumors are best seen using diagnostic ultrasound which can also see if the tumor is solid or if the tumor has blood supply. Tumors that are solid without blood supply are generally non-malignant. Tumors with blood supply are active turmors and are generally cancerous or malignant and are capable of expanding in size. The healthy process in breast healing is for the tumor to encapsulate the spoiled cancerous breast cells and cut off any blood supply resulting in a hard clot or tumor which will eventually become as hard as a rock. Eventually these rock hard tumors will stop their progressive ‘domino effect’ growth and will begin to shrink and then breakdown without radiation or chemical therapy.

20. The cure for breast cancer is found in its prevention NOT in its treatment

Healthy breasts are alkaline breasts. The human body is alkaline in its design although acidic in all of its functions. Breathing, thinking, eating, moving all produce acidic waste products if not eliminated will be deposited into the connective and fatty tissues causing irritation, then inflammation, then induration, then ulcerations, and finally degeneration or cancer. There is only one cause and one word that describes cancer – ACID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prevent acid build-up in the connective and fatty tissues with an alkaline lifestyle and diet and you will prevent and/or reverse ANY cancerous condition, including breast cancer.

Debating Value of Ultrasound In Breast Cancer Screening

San Antonio—Results from a Connecticut study have some clinicians proclaiming that all women with dense breasts who have a negative mammogram should be offered an ultrasound. The study, presented at the 2014 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS; abstract S5-01), found that ultrasound identified an additional 3.2 cancers per 1,000 women.

“It is time to think of a new paradigm of utilizing screening ultrasound,” said the lead author of the study Jean Weigert, MD, a radiologist and the director of Breast Imaging at the Hospital of Central Connecticut, in New Britain.

Since October 2009, Connecticut law has required clinicians to use certain language when providing mammographic results to women with dense breasts (approximately 40%-50% of women). Clinicians are required to say, “Your mammogram demonstrates that you have dense breast tissue, which could hide small abnormalities, and you might benefit from supplementary screening tests, which can include a breast ultrasound screening or a breast [magnetic resonance imaging] examination, or both, depending on your individual risk factors.”

Connecticut is one of 19 states, to date, that mandate that clinicians include information on breast density when providing mammogram results to patients, according to Jafi Lipson, MD, an assistant professor of radiology at Stanford University Medical Center, in Palo Alto, Calif. Additionally, Dr. Lipson said, “Insurance coverage for supplemental tests is now mandated [for patients with dense breasts] in four states, and there is federal legislation pending at this point.”

This flurry of legislation was spurred, in part, by a multicenter 3,000-patient study that demonstrated that adding a single, bilateral screening ultrasound to mammography detected an additional 4.2 cancers per 1,000 in women with dense breast tissue and a family history or prior history of breast cancer (JAMA 2008;299[18]:2151-2163, PMID: 18477782). This almost doubled the number of cancers found by mammography alone.

In the new study, researchers evaluated the effect of the new Connecticut law at two radiology practices with multiple sites in the state during the first four years after the legislation was enacted. Overall, 30% of women with dense breasts and a negative mammogram chose to have an ultrasound, and this rate was steady over the four years. “This may be due to lack of education and insurance issues,” said Dr. Weigert, who thought the rate should have been higher. “There are many high-deductible plans, and women do not want to pay for the test.”

The positive predictive value (PPV) of ultrasound improved over time, indicating that, as expected, there was a learning curve in determining which identified lesions needed to be followed and which needed to be biopsied (Table). By year 4, the PPV was 17.2%, with 3.2 additional cancers detected per 1,000 women. “The first three years, we were still doing a significant number of biopsies on patients with findings that we didn’t know whether they were positive or negative, but in the fourth year, there was a significant [improvement],” said Dr. Weigert.

Table. Positive Predictive Value of Ultrasound in Connecticut Practices Studied
Year PPV of Ultrasound, % Screening Mammogram Screening Ultrasound BIRADS 1 or 2 BIRADS 3 BIRADS 4 or 5 Positive Biopsy
1 7.1 30,679 2,706 2,377 174 151 11
2 6.1 32,500 3,351 3,000 168 180 11
3 8.1 32,230 4,128 3,819 168 148 13

The cancers detected were of all histologic grades but predominantly grade 2 and 3, hormone-positive and node-negative. Very few patients had risk factors other than dense breast tissue. Cancers were detected in patients who were in their mid-40s to mid-70s.

Although the study was limited in that it did not include a cost analysis, she pointed out that it is easier and less costly to treat a cancer if it is detected at an early stage, noting that in patients who returned for an ultrasound in a subsequent year, the cancers detected were extremely small, typically less than 1 cm.

A recent study estimated that supplemental ultrasonography screening for women with extremely dense breasts would cost $246,000 per quality-adjusted life-year gained (Ann Intern Med 2014 Dec 9. [Epub ahead of print], PMID: 25486550). This is well above $50,000, often touted as a reasonable threshold for cost-effective care (N Engl J Med 2014;371[9]:796-797, PMID: 25162885).

Dr. Lipson, who served as the discussant of the Connecticut study, pointed out that most of the PPV improvement in Dr. Weigert’s study was due to a shift of patients from a recommendation for biopsy to a recommendation for short-term follow-up, and this could be seen as a benefit or harm. “It’s not that the patient is returned to annual screening. She is kind of sucked into a vortex of short-term follow-up,” said Dr. Lipson.

Dr. Lipson also noted that none of the breast cancer ultrasound studies conducted so far have used a control group, and none have long-term follow-up. “The true clinical impact of finding these additional cancers is really unknown,” Dr. Lipson said. “Specifically,” she added, “would these additional cancers otherwise be detected at the next mammography screen while still small, node-negative, and at the early stage, and does the detection of these early cancers have an impact on mortality?”

Research: Ginger Selectively Kills Breast Cancer Cells

0594a-ginger

New research published in the Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology found that “ginger may be a promising candidate for the treatment of breast carcinomas.”[i]  This is a timely finding, insofar asbreast cancer awareness month is only days away, and one of the primary fund-raising justifications is the false concept that a low-cost, safe and effective breast cancer treatment is not yet available. Could ginger provide the type of cure that conventional, FDA-approved treatments have yet to accomplish?

The new study was performed by researchers at the Biological Sciences Department, Faculty of Sciences, King Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia, who discovered that a crude extract derived from the medicinal plant ginger (Zingiber officinale) inhibited the proliferation of breast cancer cells, without significantly affecting the viability of non-tumor breast cells — a highly promising property known as selective cytotoxicity, not found in conventional treatments.
The researchers outline the serious problems with present breast cancer therapies thusly:
Despite significant advances toward targeted therapy and screening techniques, breast cancer continues to be a chronic medical problem worldwide, being the most common type of cancer in women and the leading cause of death [1]. Typically, the treatment of breast cancer involves hormonal therapy with tamoxifen or other selective estrogen receptor (ER) modulators [24]. However, almost all patients with metastatic disease and approximately 40% of patients that receive tamoxifen experience relapse that ends by death [5]. In addition, the clinical utility of ER antagonists is often limited by side effects [236] and is largely ineffective against ER-negative breast cancer [23]. Furthermore, despite the fact that many tumors initially respond to chemotherapy, breast cancer cells can subsequently survive and gain resistance to the treatment [7]. Thus, identification of novel agents that are relatively safe but can suppress growth of both ER-positive and ER-negative human breast cancers is highly desirable.
They described their interest in investigating crude extracts of ginger in the following manner:
Despite knowledge about the potent anticancer activity of the ginger, the molecular mechanisms underlying this activity are not currently well known in breast cancer. Based on the previously mentioned reported scientific data and considering the fact that in some cases herbal extracts are showing more potency than the purified components [2122], the present study was undertaken to investigate the impacts of crude extracts of ginger on growth of breast cancer cell lines.
They discovered that ginger was capable of positively modulating a surprisingly wide range of molecular mechanisms simultaneously, such as:
  • Induction of apoptosis (programmed cell death)
  • Upregulation of Bax (a pro-apoptosis gene)
  • Downregulation of Bcl-2 proteins (cancer-associated)
  • Downregulation of prosurvival genes NF-κB, Bcl-X, Mcl-1, and Survivin
  • Downregulation of cell cycle-regulating proteins, including cyclin D1 and cyclin-dependent kinase-4 (CDK-4). (cancer-associated)
  • Increased expression of CDK inhibitor, p21 (anti-cancer associated)
  • Inhibition of c-Myc, hTERT (cancer-associated)
This is not the first study to confirm ginger’s anti-breast cancer properties.[ii]  In fact, a ginger compound known as [6]-Gingerol has recently been shown to have anti-metastatic properties in breast cancer. [iii]  Nor is ginger’s anti-cancer activity limited to breast cancer. Ginger and its constituents have been studied to inhibit the following cancers:
Ginger is an archetypal example of a food-medicine – that is, something we ingest that both nourishes us, and helps alleviate pain and suffering. Today, it is consumed as a delicacy, spice and medicine by hundreds of cultures throughout the world.  Modern science now confirms that ginger has over 100 distinct health benefits.[xvii] It’s use stretches back thousands of years – something no existing FDA-approved drug can lay claim to – and is believed to have originated in southern China, spreading to the Spice Islands and other regions of Asia, and eventually to West Africa, the Caribbean, finally to India, its largest producer.[xviii]  There is also recent evidence that ginger was traded in Greece, as far back as 3rd century BC.[xix]
