Cancer statistics are staggering. According to the World Health Organization, 1:2 men and 1:3 women are destined to develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. One in eight women are destined to develop some form of Breast Cancer in their lifetime. These are frightening statistics but, fortunately, you do have a measure of control by being very proactive about your health.
An article in the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists stated that “Cancer is a preventable disease that requires major lifestyle changes. Only 5 – 10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90-95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle.”
According to the research provided by the Breast Cancer Fund, the evidence is very clear: chemicals in our environment and radiation exposure are linked to Breast Cancer.
Here are 7 Cancer Triggers to avoid:
Trigger # 1- S.A.D. Food
The Standard America Diet’s acronym (S.A.D.) is so appropriate since it has contributed to a sad state of health. Processed, packaged and poison foods make up 90% of the grocery store shelves. Avoid the following:
- Processed fats and oils
- Chemicals and additives
- Hormones and antibiotics in meats and dairy
- Packaged and processed foods
As well-known Chiropractor and health advocate, Jack Lalane, once stated, “If man made it, don’t eat it.”
Trigger # 2 – Environmental Toxicity
Environmental toxicity includes all the chemicals we are exposed to in the environment, in our homes and in our body. Make informed decisions about the products you use around your home, in your home and on your body. The average person is exposed to over 150 chemicals per day, just from their personal body care products and cosmetics.
Trigger # 3 – Physical and Hormonal Stress
A form of physical stress that occurs in our body is called Oxidative Stress. Oxidative Stress is the body’s inability to readily detoxify or repair damage from toxins. When your body breaks down food, or when it is exposed to environmental toxins, it produces free radicals which can cause DNA and cellular damage. If your liver and detoxification pathways are not functioning at optimal levels, the chronic exposure of the free radicals can lead to DNA damage and ultimately cancer.
Hormonal stress is caused by many environmental chemicals called Xeno-estrogens. These chemical estrogens mimic estrogen and are hormone disruptors. If you cannot metabolize or properly breakdown all these foreign estrogens, you get a buildup of the more “aggressive” proliferative estrogen. An effective liver cleanser like NAC and an estrogen “cleanser” like DIM I3C is a great way to support your body.
Trigger # 4 – Emotional Wounds
Although the complex relationship between “psychology and physiology” is not clearly understood, scientists are well aware that psychological stress affects the immune system. Negative and stress-filled thoughts can lead to immunosuppression while happy joyous thoughts can boost your Immune System.
Learn to manage your stress response and examine your belief systems about your body and your health. Daily meditation and journaling are a great way to heal emotional wounds.
Trigger # 5 – Dental Toxicities
I have personally consulted with thousands of patients with compromised Immune Systems over the years and found that they had a common denominator – dental toxicities. Dental toxicities affect you in 2 ways: chemically and energetically. The internationally recognized medical researcher, Yoshiaki Omura, MD, has studied the effects of heavy metals on the body and he believes all cancer cells have mercury in them.
Trigger # 6 – Inflammation
The role of Inflammation and Breast Cancer has become abundantly clear. It has been estimated that 95% of all cancers have a common factor:
Inflammation and a protein complex involved in cellular stress called NF-kB.
Super food nutrition such as broccoli sprouts and supportive supplements such as curcumin can turn off inflammatory genes and turn on protective genes.
Trigger # 7 – Needles & Knives, Lotions & Potions
This last trigger is what is known as iatrogenic or medically induced cancers. What may come as a shock to many is that the very instruments that are used to diagnose and treat cancer, are some of the very causes of cancer. My heart goes out to the countless women that are unknowingly coerced into radiation and mastectomies when they are dealing with a benign condition.
According to Medscape News, “The practice of oncology is in need of a host of reforms.” It is a well-known scientific fact that cancer stem cells that are subjected to radiation and chemical poisoning actually stimulate the growth of the cancer and make it more malignant. Do needle biopsies fall into that same category? Absolutely! Here is a statement from the JAMA Surgery magazine: “Manipulation of an intact tumor by FNA (fine needle aspiration) or large-gauge needle core biopsy is associated with an increase in the incidence of SN metastases, perhaps due in part to the mechanical disruption of the tumor by the needle.”
