Preventing Breast Cancer

Rather than smashing your breast and exposing them to cancer causing radiation with mammograms, women should be focusing on preventing breast cancer. Mammograms don’t prevent cancer. They are not early detection. By the time a tumor is large enough for us to see it on mammogram, you already have over a million cancer cells. Many will have already spread. You can run from here to China and wear pink until you’re blue, there will never, ever be a cure for breast cancer any more than there will be a cure for obesity or being drunk. Breast cancer, like my prostate cancer, is a consequence, not a coincidence. In addition to following a BALi type eating plan (Paleo, Mediterranean, Maker’s Diet, etc.) exercising, avoiding synthetic hormones (birth control pills containing ethinyl estradiol) and breast feeding–adding vitamin D3 and Iodoral will greatly reduce your risk. These are especially important for women with a history of fibrocystic breast which is a precancerous condition. For men, we find that what works for breast cancer also works to prevent prostate cancer.

( A study published finds that the hormonally active form of vitamin D, Calcitriol 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3), inhibits the growth of many kinds of cancerous cells, including breast cancer, indicating that vitamin D3 can be useful in treating and even preventing a variety of cancers. Soooooo, whip out those breasts guys.

Authors of the study said that cancer cell growth is inhibited by “anticancer actions including cell cycle arrest, promotion of apoptosis and inhibition of invasion, metastasis, and angiogenesis.” Vitamin D’s anti-inflammatory properties and interference with estrogen synthesis further explains its anti-tumor properties.

Two studies from 2007 used meta-analysis, which combines data from multiple reports, to find that therapeutic doses of vitamin D could prevent up to half of all cases of breast cancer, and two-thirds of all cases of colorectal cancer in the United States. The studies showed a direct correlation between blood levels of vitamin D and cancer. Those with the highest blood levels were found to be at the lowest risk, and the lowest blood levels at the highest risk.

According to Bach, problems from deficiency may include: heart disease, birth defects, depression, hypertension, stroke, dementia, fibromyalgia, impaired bone mineralization, skin, breast, prostate and other cancers, multiple sclerosis, insomnia, eye problems, problems with pregnancy, and other chronic diseases. It is estimated that more than one billion people worldwide, and 77 percent of Americans, are deficient in vitamin D.
