Another article by Health101 that I think is a must read. I've done a lot of articles about cancer, and believe it's such an important topic for people to educate themselves about! I find this article (although lengthy) sums up a lot of information that I've tried to share in several posts.
Some Facts about the Breast Cancer Industry
by Mike Adams
by Mike Adams
With Breast Cancer Awareness month fully upon us once again, retail stores have been invaded with everything pink, including "pink ribbon" candies and personal care products made with blatantly cancer-causing ingredients. Retail grocery stores like Safeway even hit up customers for donations at the cash register, promising to raise funds to find "the cure for cancer."
Consumers of course, have virtually no idea where the funds they donate actually go, nor do they know the truth about breast cancer they'll never be told by conventional cancer non-profit organizations. In this article, I'll reveal some important myths about breast cancer, and the truths that can save your life.
Myth: Breast Cancer is not preventable
The Truth: Up to 98% of breast cancer cases can be prevented through diet, nutritional supplements, sunshine and exercise
It's true: Breast cancer can be almost entirely prevented through commonsense changes in diet, the addition of anti-cancer nutritional supplements, boosting vitamin D creation from sunlight, avoiding exposure to toxic chemicals in consumer products, pursuing regular exercise and eating a healthy diet.
The breast cancer industry -- which depends on the continuation of cancer for its profits and employment -- has so far refused to teach women even basic cancer prevention strategies (such as increasing the intake of vitamin D, which prevents approximately 77% of all cancers).
Myth: Pink ribbon products are sold to raise money to support breast cancer victims.
The Truth: Nearly 100% of the funds are used to recruit more breast cancer patients into highly lucrative treatments that do more harm than good.
You know where all that money goes that you donate to the "search for the cure" and other cancer scams? Virtually none of it goes to actually teach women how to prevent cancer. The World Health Organization says 70% of all cancers are preventable, but the breast cancer industry helps zero percent of women actually prevent it.
Those funds actually go to recruiting breast cancer patients by offering "free" mammograms. This is the clever recruitment strategy of the cancer industry. It's sort of like an unscrupulous garage mechanic offering a "free" checkup on your car's transmission. It's in his financial interest to find something wrong, just like it's in the financial interests of the cancer industry to diagnose a women with cancer and scare her into expensive, high-profit treatments like chemotherapy, radiation therapy or cancer surgery. (Mammogram false positives are commonplace.)
Want proof of where these funds go? Check out this grant list at the Komen for the Cure organization, and you'll see it's almost entirely spent on recruiting more women with mammograms.
When you read that list, note that there is not a single grant provided for nutritional education to teach women how to prevent cancer with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet consisting of lots of fruits and vegetables, and some efficacious supplements, or to avoid dangerous cancer-causing food ingredients like sodium nitrite, MSG and chemical sweeteners (or products that exacerbate cancer like dairy products and bras).
Myth: The only proven treatments for breast cancer are chemotherapy and radiation
The Truth: Chemotherapy doesn't work and radiation causes cancer
Chemotherapy is a fraud, plain and simple. It's as ludicrous as poisoning patients with mercury and calling it medicine (which is something doctors did a hundred years ago, by the way). There is absolutely no reliable scientific evidence showing that chemotherapy has any positive effect whatsoever on breast cancer. Try to find the science yourself: It doesn't exist.
Sure, there's evidence that chemotherapy shrinks tumors. Too bad, however, that tumor size is irrelevant and has no correlation to a positive outcome. Artificially reducing the size of a tumor does nothing to reverse the physiology of cancer in a patient's body. It doesn't initiate the healing that needs to take place to reverse cancer and stay cancer free. And this doesn't even take into account the quality of life issues.
Myth: Chemotherapy is safe and doesn't cause permanent damage to your health
The Truth: Chemotherapy causes vomiting, hair loss, muscle loss, brain damage, heart damage, kidney damage and liver damage. Much of this damage is permanent.
Myth: Regular mammograms are the best way to detect cancer
The Truth: Mammograms harm ten women for every one woman they help
Here's part of a story published in 2006, called Breast Cancer Screening Harms Ten Women for Every One That it Helps
"A new study by researchers from the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark found that mammograms may harm ten times as many women as they help.
The researchers examined the benefits and negative effects of seven breast cancer screening programs on 500,000 women in the United States, Canada, Scotland and Sweden. The study's authors found that for every 2,000 women who received mammograms over a 10-year period, only one would have her life prolonged, and ten would endure unnecessary and potentially harmful treatments."
Got that? For every 2,000 women receiving mammograms, only ONE would have her life extended at all. TEN women, though, would be harmed with chemotherapy, radiation or mastectomies. (And with the availability of thermography, which is far more effective at detecting breast cancer and doesn't create any cancerous cells, you'd think we'd hear more about it from the cancer industry... but we don't.)
What the study didn't point out, by the way, is that all these treatments are highly profitable for the cancer industry. That's the real reason why mammograms are pushed so aggressively on women. It's not because mammograms detect cancer; it's because mammograms make them money (and let's not forget, mammograms can cause the very thing they're trying to find.)
To the breast cancer industry, a woman is nothing more than a revenue generating unit (an actual term!). The push for mammography is a marketing ploy designed to keep women scared, misinformed, and lined up to be poisoned with chemotherapy while they possibly shell out their life savings for treatments that, for most of them, aren't even medically justified!
The true history of western medicine's violence against women
In time, of course, this will change. Medical violence against women is a crime, regardless of whether the weapon is a fist, a baseball bat, or a syringe full of chemicals that will cause permanent damage to her vital organs. In time, chemotherapy will be outlawed and breast cancer doctors will be put out of work or prosecuted for their crimes against women.
To all the women reading this, note carefully the history of western medicine and its numerous assaults on women over the years. Do you know where the term "hysterectomy" comes from? It came from the belief by male doctors that women's emotions were "hysterical," and they believed the best way to "cure" women of their hysteria was to cut her reproductive organs out of her body. The procedure was widely adopted by male surgeons and used for well over a hundred years to treat women who were diagnosed as suffering from virtually every kind of emotional variance you can imagine.
Even today, tens of thousands of hysterectomies are performed each year with no medical justification whatsoever. Doctors continue to view women's bodies as diseased and abnormal, surgically removing their breasts and reproductive organs for no justifiable reason whatsoever. It's even being done today as a cancer prevention procedure to women who have no cancer at all!
Myth: BRCA-positive women should consider mastectomies to prevent cancer
The Truth: Fruits and vegetables target BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, preventing cancer with nutrition
Women who are "BRCA positive" are being scared into utterly unnecessary double mastectomies -- a procedure that benefits no one except the surgeon. What nobody is telling these women is that fruits and vegetables contain anti-cancer nutrients that specifically target BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, protecting these women from breast cancer. (These foods should be organically grown; pesticides on conventionally grown fruits and vegetables can cause cancerous cells to form.)
Cancer doctors aren't taught preventative techniques in med school; it would hurt the cancer business if women knew how to prevent cancer on their own, at home, with everyday groceries. (There is also a huge causal relationship between bras and breast cancer.)
Some conventional cancer doctors [fortunately not all] refuse to tell women about scientific evidence concerning cancer prevention. If women could prevent breast cancer with healthy lifestyle practices, why would they need cancer doctors?
Myth: The cancer non-profits are searching for a cure for cancer
The Truth: Even if one was found, they would never allow a cure to be publicized: It would destroy the cancer treatment industry
|“If I came up with a cure for cancer tomorrow, half the people at the National Cancer Institute would commit suicide, and the other half would be out chasing me with a machine gun.” -- Cancer research observer, from "King Cancer" by Philip Nobile, Esquire Magazine, June 1973|
It's the great scam of the cancer industry: "We're searching for a cure", they claim! Never mind the fact that they've been using this same con since the late 60's, when they claimed to be only a few million dollars away from curing cancer forever.
The search for "the cure" is pure deception. It's a clever con to take money from people via all those pink ribbon activities. Three reasons a cure will not be found: 1. It would destroy the profits of the cancer industry. 2. Cancer is a naturally occurring condition; it is the result of unhealthy lifestyle practices, so there can't be a cure... we can't find a cure for the common cold, what makes anyone think we can cure cancer. 3. The big money is in cancer "prevention" drugs. (And new ones will be coming out every so often, and they will all say in the accompanying product literature, "...may prevent cancer..." because that magic word "may" protects them should the user get cancer despite talking the drug.)
The truth is, anyone who donates money for any such "search for the cure" is being conned outright. By buying pink products they may think they're helping find a "cure" for cancer, but this is not the case.
Don't be suckered. Keep your money, or better yet, invest it in organically grown fruits and vegetables and high quality supplements. You want to cure cancer? A better idea is to prevent it from occurring in the first place.
Myth: If my mother had breast cancer, I'll get it too
The Truth: Breast Cancer is not caused by bad genes; it's caused by unhealthy diets, lack of deep sleep, lack of enough exercise, too much unmanaged stress, and too much bra wearing.
This myth is another common lie told to woman by cancer doctors to scare them into medically unnecessary cancer treatments (which can kill you or harm you). Did you know that radiation treatment for one breast actually causes cancerous cells to form in the OTHER breast?
Your genes have very little to do with your health outcome. What you put in your mouth and how you live your life is what determines your quality of life. If your parents had cancer, they were no doubt eating too much cancer-causing foods and not enough anti-cancer foods and not taking worthwhile supplements. And they may have had regular exposure to cancer-causing chemicals: Cigarette smoke, chemical solvents, unhealthy drinking and bathing water, perfume chemicals, household cleaners, pesticides, skin care products, conventional cosmetics, etc.
Myth: Sunlight causes cancer
The Truth: Sunlight generates Vitamin D in your skin, which prevents approximately 77% of ALL cancers
The disinformation put out by the cancer industry about sunlight has reached a level of absurdity that's virtually unmatched in the history of medicine. If you believe what the American Cancer Society tells you, sunlight causes cancer!
Yes, that's right: Sunlight causes cancer, they claim. According to the entire cancer industry (and most dermatologists, too), you'd be much better off staying out of the sun or smothered in a layer of toxic sunscreen chemicals (which actually cause cancer).
The ploy here is obvious: Cancer industry authorities know that vitamin D prevents the majority of cancers. Since sunlight exposure causes the skin to generate vitamin D in the human body (for free, no less), the cancer industry understands that in order for it to continue its control of cancer, it has to scare people away from anything that might actually prevent or cure cancer.
This is the whole reason behind the sunlight scare campaigns, of course. It's all just a clever profit strategy to keep people sick and diseased by enforcing widespread vitamin D deficiency across the human population. Note, too, that this deficiency is especially prominent in men and women with dark skin tone. Ever wonder why breast cancer is FAR more aggressive in people with dark skin tones? It's the vitamin D deficiency caused by the dark skin tone. (But cancer docs never tell these patients anything about it... is this because they don't know about this very easy to understand mechanism?)
Why the cancer industry is dangerous to women
The cancer industry people are living in a world of self-reinforced fictions, where sunlight is bad and chemotherapy chemicals are good; where food is useless but pharmaceuticals are essential. Almost everything said to you by a conventional cancer doctor is the opposite of what's real, and yet they believe their own delusions only because those delusions are so widely shared by their colleagues. It is circular logic at its worst, driven by both arrogance and greed at the various high levels of the medical and cancer industries, and to a large extent lacks any discernible degree of intellectual honesty or compassion for the value of a human life.
The cancer industry is, in a very real way, a danger to the safety of men and women alike. It is a kind of home-grown medical terrorism, through which the application of fear and disinformation results in massive corporate profits.
Why women should revolt against the cancer industry
What's so sad is that the cancer industry is being staffed by women, cheered by women and supported by women. Today, women are paying for their own cancer industry chemical assaults using the dollars right out of their own pockets. Those who support the conventional breast cancer non-profits are funding the very industry that sends them down the path where they are treated and sent home poisoned, emaciated, or mutilated beyond repair, instead of a path that leads to the knowledge of how to prevent breast cancer or how to deal with it so as to have the best chance of a positive outcome.
If our government will not protect us from an industry that seeks to turn the bodies of women into corporate profit centers, I hope that the people of America will one day wake up and realize that they are being taken advantage of for the sake of profit at the expense of their health, and that they take responsibility for their own health, and that they take measures to protect themselves from cancer industry misinformation.
