We all know that nowadays, breast cancer represents the biggest fear for every single woman on the planet. According to statistics, one in eight women will develop invasive cancer in her breast during her lifetime, and even 40,000 women per year lose their battle with this terrible disease. This is the reason why just by mentioning breast cancer, women feel despair.
What can you do to avoid being a part of these statistics?
Fortunately, less than 10% of all breast cancer cases are linked to genetics, and the other 90% are linked to external factors, to which we can affect. Probably the first thing you should do to prevent breast cancer is to make some life changes, especially when it comes to your diet. Moreover, you need to exercise more and to avoid toxins and input of vitamin D. beside being careful with your food, you should also carefully select products for personal care, furniture products and other potential toxins that are present daily near you. An excessive exposure to toxins can increase your development for cancer.
Antiperspirants and other cosmetics
People use cosmetics, lotions for sunlight, antiperspirants and many more personal care products, but the bad news is that they are all full of parabens. Previous studies showed that all these Parabens have estrogenic activity in cancerous cells in breast. According to a 2012 study, one r more parabens-esters were found in 99% of 160 cells from tissue taken from 40 mastectomies. This indicates that antiperspirants and cosmetics may increase the risk of breast cancer. Eventhough it was tought that antiperspirants are common source of parabens, some researchers said that 7 out of 14 respondents claimed that they never used antiperspirants. This data shows that regardless of the source, Parabens can accumulate in tissues of breast. Beside antiperspirants, they can be found in many other products for personal care, comsetics and in drugs as well. As you can see, products for skin are the biggest triggers in the formation of cancer. Antiperspirants contain other component – called aluminum chloride which acts similarly as ontogenesis that lead to molecular transformations in cancer cells.
Toxins in daily products
According to recent studies, women can reduce the risk of getting a breast cancer if they avoid certain chemicals which are found in everyday products. If people reduce their exposure to chemicals, many lives can be saved. Researchers indentified 216 chemicals tha tincrease cancer in breasts and they focused on 12 chemicals to which women were daily exposed through food, drugs, air, pollution and other similar products. Toxic substances like this are marked as hard flammable materials (fire resistant) and can be found in furniture, carpets and clothes. Unfortunately, these chemicals cannot always be avoided since they are present in every household in couches, chairs, etc. Biggest level of these hard flammable materials is noted at newborns. According to statistics, even 90% of Americans have hard flammable chemicals inside their bodies and many studies link those chemicals to the risks of infertility, birth defects, cancer of liver, kidneys, testicular cancer and low IQ behaviour problems in children. Big powerful industries as Big Tobacco and chemical producers are managing campaigns that lead to spread of these chemicals which do not work as they are presented and promised previously. All these hardly flammabale chemicals belong to the same group as DDT and PCB. They react with other poisons and create carcinogenic dioxins and furans. The chemical industry declares that the hard flammable materials are increasing the time for escape in case of fire for 15 times. However, in real life this is far far away from the truth. According to some independent studies, the most widespread hard flammable chemicals do not provide any advantage to humans; they just increase the amount of toxic chemicals in smoke. Hardly flammable chemicals such as chlorinated tris (TDCPP) is removed from children PJ’s in 1970 – because of the fact that they can cause cancer but now it is present in couches around the United States. As you can see, you should definitely buy couches that are made from 100% wool and Kevlar since these materials decelerate fire without additional chemucals.
Other strategies for preventing breast cancer
According to American Institute for Cancer Research, 40% of cancer cases in the US could have been prevented if people made wiser decisions about their lifestyle.
- Drink 1 liter per day organic juice from green vegetables.
- Intake sufficient amount of iodine which is required for hormone synthesis.
- Avoid xenoestrogens, synthetic chemicals that mimic natural estrogens.
- Breastfeeding should last 6 months.
- Avoid alcohol
- Be careful of your intestines and your intestinal flora.
- Consume anti- carcinogenic food, herbs and spices as turmeric, cinnamon and broccoli.
- Remain healthy bodyweight.
- Reduce or completely remove processed food, sugars and carbohydrates. All kinds of sugar are harmful to health.
- Limit your protein intake and increase your intake of healthy fats, consume coconut or avocado for example.
- Intake large amounts of natural vitamin A which prevents breast cancer. This vitamin must be balanced together with vitamin D.
- Avoid bras with wire.
- Sleep enough
- Improve your sensitivity of insulin/ leptin.
- Use effective methods for dealing with your stress.
- Avoid electromagnetic fields.
