"Roy Walford's (the longevity researcher who headed up Biosphere II) favorite example: We know that Japanese women are remarkably resistant to developing breast cancer; they also drink a lot of green tea. Many people have made the association between drinking green tea or its active ingredient, a catechin called ECGC, and cancer prevention. But not so fast. Japanese women also all have black hair. We could just as easily make the association that having black hair prevents breast cancer."

"Some fourteen thousand fewer women, they said, had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 than in the previous year. This was the first full year after women had stopped taking Prempro in droves. Researchers said they finally understood why women in some of the most affluent areas of the country, places like Marin County, California, had for years suffered from higher rates of breast cancer than places not as wealthy. The affluent women, they said, had been more likely to take the prescription hormones."

"A lower CoQIO level has also been cited as a contributing factor in breast cancer—a finding that should be a cause for caution when prescribing statins to postmenopausal women, a high-risk population for breast cancer. The bottom line is that statins can work for you or against you. Everyone is unique and has to weigh the potential risk/reward ratio. If you have a family history of high lipids, early heart attacks, and premature death, you may opt to be more aggressive. But suppose you are a young male or female in your forties with no history of heart disease."

"In contrast, studies reported in both the International Society for Preventive Oncology's Cancer Detection and Prevention Journal (1999) and the International Union Against Cancer's International Cancer Journal (2005) found that women who used synthetic progestins plus estrogen had a significantly higher risk of breast cancer, whereas women using bio-identical progesterone plus synthetic estrogens had a lower risk of breast cancer than women using estrogen alone."

"She'd received a phone call from a friend of hers, Hella Hammid, announcing that she had breast cancer. Hella had arrived in Elisabeth's life through her father, who'd inadvertently discovered in Hella, a photographer, one of his most talented remote viewers. Hella had called to ask if Elisabeth knew of any evidence that alternative therapies such as distant healing ?something not unlike remote viewing - could help to cure breast cancer."

"This is true, but obesity didn't "cause" the breast cancer. The point is that most of the risk factors are observations of association, not causes. This disconnect I believe is what creates most of our misunderstanding about dietary advice. Here's Dr. Roy Walford's (the longevity researcher who headed up Biosphere II) favorite example: We know that Japanese women are remarkably resistant to developing breast cancer; they also drink a lot of green tea. Many people have made the association between drinking green tea or its active ingredient, a catechin called ECGC, and cancer prevention."

"The risk of breast cancer associated with HRT in 54,548 postmenopausal women who had never taken any HRT was studied in the E3N-EPIC (National Education System-European Prospective Investigation into Cancer & Nutrition) study. HRT containing synthetic progestogens was associated with a 40 percent increase in the risk of breast cancer as opposed to no increase in risk with HRT that contained micron-ized progesterone. When it comes to metabolic function, studies suggest that synthetic progestogens may worsen insulin sensitivity."

"A previous six-year breast cancer study that included data on more than 74,000 women over the age of fifty, found that women who exercise regularly have lower breast cancer rates. Only a couple of hours of brisk walking each week may provide enough exercise to reduce breast cancer risk. The second study looked at the association between walking exercise and the risk of dementia in men aged seventy-one to ninety-three. They collected three years of exercise data on more than 2,200 men."

"With the exception of a strong family history of breast cancer," the authors warned, "the relation between IGF-1 and risk of breast cancer may be greater than that of other established breast-cancer risk factors."10 The International Journal of Cancer described a "significant association between circulating IGF-1 concentrations and an increased risk of lung, colon, prostate, and pre-menopausal breast cancer." It concluded, "Lowering plasma IGF-1 may thus represent an attractive strategy to be pursued."

"According to a report Steingraber prepared for the breast cancer Fund, girls who reached puberty early in life might be 50 percent more likely to develop breast cancer later in life. Until we definitively understand the root cause of precocious puberty, we must, as always, try to protect our kids from dangerous chemical exposures. Keep your kids away from chemical personal-care products and make sure they're eating right and getting enough exercise."

"Clearly, some lifestyle factor not related to pollution, urbanization, or the environment is seriously increasing the Western woman's chance of contracting breast cancer.45 Looking at the chart below, you can see that a black man in the United States is 280 times more likely to develop prostate cancer than a man in rural Quidong, China, and 70 times more prone than a man in urban Tianjin, China.

"Frederick vom Saal of the University of Missouri-Columbia, fetuses and newborns exposed to BPA even at low doses have a higher likelihood of developing prostate and breast cancer later in life. So make an effort to reduce your child's contact with BPA by choosing healthier baby bottles. BPA-free bottles include Evenflo glass bottles, which are available at major retail stores and select supermarkets. When Wyatt was a baby, glass bottles were a lot harder to find than they are now. I ended up ordering two dozen from the only source that stocked them, and I never broke a single one."

"A study at the University of Washington showed that drinking five glasses of water a day decreases the risk of colon cancer by 35 percent, the risk of breast cancer by 79 percent, and the risk of bladder cancer by 50 percent. This is a significant statement about the importance of water. Dehydration is something that may happen with age, so one of the main anti-aging treatments is drinking adequate water—about a half gallon (64 ounces) per day for a 150-pound person."

"The study of more than 90,000 women found that the more red meat the women consumed in their twenties, thirties, and forties, the greater their risk for developing breast cancer fueled by hormones in the next twelve years. Those who consumed the most red meat had nearly twice the risk of those who ate red meat infrequently.4217 Men whose mothers have low beef intake, compared to men of mothers with high beef intake, are more virile. Sons of mothers with low beef consumption have sperm concentrations 24.3 percent higher than those of high-beef-consumption mothers."

"The WHI study results included evidence of an increase in the risk for breast cancer and heart disease, yet reduced the risk of hip fractures and colorectal cancer. One reason for the results in the WHI trial is the use of synthetic progestogens rather than natural progesterone. LOW TESTOSTERONE IS COMMON IN DIABETIC MEN A study in the November 2004 issue of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism revealed that one out of three diabetic men have low testosterone levels."

"Similar studies on fat intake and breast cancer in the Women's Health Initiative Study didn't show a relationship, either. The problem is that all these variables taken together create other variables, adding up to a complex matrix of influencing factors. In the case of colon cancer, some of these additional variables are the bacteria that feed off your diet. If you change the recipe, you change the bacteria. But how many of the ingredients have to change before the bugs change? Are some ingredients more important than others?"

"Schlitz and her fellow researchers decided to seek out couples with a wife suffering from breast cancer, and began advertising around the San Francisco Bay Area for volunteers. It soon became apparent that they would have to widen their original brief. The breast-cancer population of the Bay Area, which is higher than average in the United States, has been extremely well studied. From the lackluster response to their advertising, it appeared that sufferers were unwilling to take part in yet more research."

"An increase in IGF-I may provoke cancer cells to increase more rapidly and contribute to lung, colon, prostate, and breast cancer. Although the FDA says that there is "no significant difference" in cows treated with artificial hormones, you can find many dairies that refuse to use rBGH; look for milk producers who disclose on their labels that they don't use artificial hormones. • Dioxin. Dioxin is the most carcinogenic substance ever tested."

"HRT containing synthetic progestogens was associated with a 40 percent increase in the risk of breast cancer as opposed to no increase in risk with HRT that contained micron-ized progesterone. When it comes to metabolic function, studies suggest that synthetic progestogens may worsen insulin sensitivity. There is also evidence that women of childbearing age who use contraceptives that contain synthetic progestogens may be at increased risk for gestational diabetes."

"High levels of lignans are associated with reduced rates of colon and breast cancer. Just 10 grams, or about one to two teaspoons of flax seed oil per day, raises levels of the lignans significantly. A third advantage of the flax seed oil over fish oil is that fish and fish oil are high in cholesterol. Three and one-half ounces of cod liver oil contain 570 milligrams of cholesterol, which equals the amount found in two egg yolks. The fourth advantage of flax seed oil over fish oil is the fact that fish are often high in toxic residues because they live in polluted waters."

"It means breast cancer. Antiandrogens are capable of preventing or inhibiting the biologic effects of androgens on normally responsive tissues in the body. They usually work by blocking the appropriate receptors, competing for binding sites on the cell's surface, and thus obstructing the androgens' pathway. In the presence of antiandrogens, which are found in commonly used fungicides for agriculture, a developing fetus will generate gene mutations that then change the genital organs."

"More than 40 percent of American women between the ages of fifty and seventy-four were taking Prempro or a similar drug in 2002, when a large government study found that the pills raised a woman's risk of breast cancer, heart attack, and stroke. Upon learning of the study's results, millions of women threw away their pill bottles. The number of prescriptions written for Prempro fell by more than 65 percent. But that was not the end of the tale."

"Six months after that December 2000 video, government researchers announced they had shut down a study of Prempro after finding it caused a higher risk of breast cancer, heart disease, and stroke. While the drug would remain on the market, the news startled millions of women who had believed the daily pills would keep them vigorous, sexy, and young. Robert Chandler and Gianfranco Chicco were two of the industry's top experts on producing buzz about pharmaceutical products. They operated a global public relations firm from an office in the heart of Manhattan's meatpacking district."

"For decades, doctors had been unwittingly fueling the rate of breast cancer in the United States by writing prescriptions for the estrogen pills. It can take a hundred years before all the risks of a medicine are known, explained Dr. Janet Woodcock, a top FDA official, in a presentation to a panel of experts who were reviewing the safety of the nation's drug supply in 2005. And in a stunning admission, Dr. Woodcock said that the FDA could no longer count on the nation's physicians to understand even the known risks of medicines. "

"A daily drink or two has been associated with lower rates of heart disease, but alcohol use has also been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer, for instance. It does appear to reduce stress and the damaging effects of chronic inflammation. What's more, having a glass of wine with a meal creates an "event," and thus makes it more likely you'll eat more slowly. Red wine offers an extra bonus in that it contains artery-scrubbing polyphenols that may help fight arteriosclerosis. For an extra antioxidant bump, choose a Sardinian Can-nonau."

"Flavonoids in tofu may help protect the hearts and guard against breast cancer. Fermented soy foods contribute to a healthy intestinal ecology and offer even better nutritional benefits. Maintain a moai. The Okinawan tradition of forming a moai provides secure social networks. These safety nets lend financial and emotional support in times of need and give all of their members the stress-shedding security of knowing that there is always someone there for them. Enjoy the sunshine."
