Recent decades have brought enormous increases in breast cancer. Rather than look for a reason, most research has centered on finding treatments, though with little effect on outcomes. Philippa Darbre, though, has dedicated her efforts to finding if aluminum, a known human toxin that’s the basis for antiperspirants, could be the culprit.

We live in the Age of Aluminum, a time that brings great convenience, but at the expense of enormous health damage. A likely case in point is the massive upsurge in breast cancer and fibrocystic disease, a condition of cyst formation in the breasts. Aluminum of the periodic table is the most likely cause of both these conditions.
Keele Conference participant Philippa Darbre has dedicated herself to researching this epidemic. She states:
Mortality results from breast tumour growth at metastatic sites rather than in the breast itself. (more…)
The health benefits of green tea are (almost) endless. Cultivated for hundreds of years, green tea is loaded with antioxidants; saccharides (sugar); chlorophyll and some vitamins like, A, B1, B2, B3, C and E. Naturally, millions of people drink green tea for the health of it – but what does it really do for us?
1. A great way to prevent cancer
Research shows that green tea helps inhibit the growth of cancer cells and prevent cancers such as, pancreatic, prostate, breast, esophagieal, colorectal, stomach and lung cancer. A current analysis of 22 studies proved that drinking (2) cups of green tea per day can reduce the risk of lung cancer by 18 percent. (more…)
Breast thermography is a simple way to help lower your cancer risk. Unfortunately, most conventionally-trained physicians have no idea about its benefits. Although a surprising fact to most people, medical thermography has been around since the 1970’s and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982 for breast cancer detection and risk assessment – as an adjunct to mammography.
Unfortunately, the medical establishment; the American Cancer Society (ACS) and most women’s organizations only push for mammography – which, due to radiation exposure, only increases your risk for breast cancer with every test. Find out how to prevent breast cancer – years before conventional testing procedures – by understanding the value of breast thermography and natural healthcare solutions. (more…)
A new study just published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry appears to be the first to provide what the researchers call “unequivocal evidence that omega-3s reduce cancer risk.”
So, how much of a risk are they talking about? A huge one. The scientists from the University of Guelph found that a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids (healthy fats found in cold water fish such as salmon and certain plant foods, including walnuts) can inhibit the growth of breast cancer tumors by 30 percent, especially if started early in life.

Enjoyed the world over as something of an icon of the tropical experience, the pineapple was used in indigenous medicine for a wide range of ailments; uses that are only now being confirmed by modern scientific methods.
While most know pineapple as an exceptionally delicious tropical fruit, indigenous peoples used it to treat a variety of ailments. Unfortunately, much of this intimate plant knowledge was considered by early anthropologists to be based on mere “superstition” and subsequently disregarded, so few in the modern world have been made aware of its formidable healing powers.

Herbal Remedy From Thailand
Pueraria mirifica (also known as Kwao Krua or Butea Superba) is a plant found only in Thailand and parts of Burma; 99% is grown in Thailand. Menopausal women, have been using Pueraria Mirifica for 700 years.
The region where this plant is grown is remarkable for its low rate of breast cancer and impressive longevity, which alerted scientists to something good going on. The lucky women get to use this local plant and the benefits are enormous and the science is building all the time.
Men should use it too, especially as they age, since men are increasingly exposed to old-age estrogens (“male estrogen”). (more…)
