Breast Cancer Prevention: The Danger of Environmental Hormones …

By research writer: Margaret W. Lavigne


Breast Cancer Risk and Environmental Factors

Breast cancer has a high correlation with plasticizers and pesticides in the environment. Doctors  from Taiwan urge the general public not to use plastic bags to carry food in hot temperature so as to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Zhang Yaoren, deputy director of the Tzu Chi Hospital in Taipei, advocates that as people put hot food in plastic bags, it will release plasticizers. Beyond that, plastic containers should not be exposed to sun exposure, because high temperature or ultraviolet light.


It’s worth noting that some plastic containers will release environmental hormones even at low temperatures.Repeatedly using PET plastic bottles is risky to our health and many disposable cups are PS plastics. Plastics may become unsafe if they are not resistant to high temperatures. Many containers may not deform under high heat, but it does not  guarantee that no toxic substances will be released. As to thermos, if the inner layer is coated with plastic, health risks will increase. 


Plasticizers and Breast Cancer Risk

Researchers found that overexposure to plasticizers nearly doubles the risk of contracting breast cancer and for those with poor metabolisms, that risk rises to 3.4 times high. The argument is based on a long-term research study conducted by Academia Sinica, the National Health Research Institutes, National Taiwan University Hospital and other groups. The research was conducted over more than 20 years with extensive samples. Thus, the report is totally convincing.


Academia Sinica vice president Chen Chien-jen said that having excessive amounts of plasticizers in one’s body might destroy the body’s hormonal balance, causing breast cells to become abnormal and cancerous, or causing a lot of oxidation during metabolism, and ultimately result in gene transformation.


Phthalates, ubiquitous environmental pollutants that may disturb the endocrine system, are used primarily as plasticizers of polyvinyl chloride and as additives in consumer products.Some phthalates can be absorbed through the skin (Janjua et al. 2007)or being ingested, because phthalates can migrate from wrappers and containers to foods (Wormuth et al. 2006).Phthalates are endocrine disruptors with estrogenic effects.Prenatal exposure may increase the risk of contracting breast cancer.


Academia Sinica vice president Chen Chien-jen said that other factors linked to breast cancer include the excessive consumption of animal fat and exposure to environmental hormones. He asserts that plasticizers are being present in things such as toys, cables and shower curtains. In normal situations, the metabolic material is released via the kidneys in 24 to 48 hours. He suggested women increase their water consumption, and exercise more to prevent breast cancer.


Breast Cancer Has a High Cure Rate

The 10-year survival rate for the patients of the first-stage breast cancer is roughly 80% in Taiwan. As to  zero-stage breast cancer treatment, the 10-year survival rate is  close to 100%.


There are many cases that breast cancer and breast lumps disappear without any treatment. Thus, be hopeful because a joyful heart is the best medicine.  Raising body temperature is an effective way to fight against disease. By increasing the body’s  temperature, we increase the body’s immunity simultaneously. 


Emotion and Illness 

It’s worth noting that emotions and stress affect blood circulation and even body’s inflammation index and blood sugar level. Indeed, negative emotions, such as sorrow and suppressed anger, increase blood sugar index and inflammation index. If you do not have enough energy and stamina, you may consider detox your body by acupressure. 


Prevention of Breast Cancer 

#1. Limit sugar intake, especially processed sugar intake, including chocolate, sugary drinks and jams.

#2. Manage negative emotions, such as sorrow, regrets and suppressed anger.

#3. Quit smoking. There’s a link between smoking and breast cancer risk, particularly in premenopausal women.

#4. Weight control and regular exercise: Dr. Jiang Kunjun argues that  Obesity may stimulate estrogen to accelerate breast cancer proliferation!

# 5. alkaline diet

It’s a verified fact that a higher body temperature boost our immune system.

#6. The link between birth control pills and breast cancer

There’s some evidence shows that hormonal contraception, includes birth control pills and IUDs, release hormones, and ulimtately increases the risk of breast cancer. It’s comforting to know that the the risk decreases after you stop using hormonal contraceptives.

#7 .Limit alcohol. The more alcohol you drink, the greater your risk of developing breast cancer.

Attention: If you notice any changes in your breasts, such as a new lump or skin changes, consult your doctor. Self-healing is real. 


TCM(Traditional Chinese Medicine) : Breast cancer has much to do with the negative emotions, particularly depression, sorrow and anger. 

Capsaicin has been proved to alter the expression of several genes involved in cancer cell survival, growth arrest, angiogenesis and metastasis.


Common Symptoms of Breast Cancer

  1. Change in the size, shape or appearance of a breast, abnormal nipple bleeding , protrusion or ulceration.
  2. There are wounds on the breast that cannot be healed for weeks, or the same wound continues to ulcerate. 
  3. After menstruation, the breasts continue to ache.


According to Dr. Li,  it’s not wise to cut the infected tissue without altering the environment of your body. Without uprooting the cause of the illness, reoccurrence of the illness is assured.


# Breast Cancer May Be Asymptomatic

For women who are younger, they have a tumor is usually larger, with an average of 2 cm. The bad news is that  breast cancer cells are more malignant for younger women .Younger women with breast cancer are more likely to suffer from  poor prognosis with a relatively higher mortality rate.For women with breast cancer, they are recommended to get  pregnant 2 to 3 years after treatment, and may consider preserving ovum and embryos before treatment.


# Breast lumps do not amount to cancer

Dr. Liu Zongyu reminded that breast lumps are not the typical signal of breast cancer. He argues that up to 90% of lumps may be a cyst or fibroadenoma, which is usually benign. If you have concerns in your mind, please go to the doctor and check whether it is cancerous.

In truth, there’s a strong link between imperfection, unconditional love and post-traumatic growth. If you believe in luck or miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins. According to Bible, a blessed life is not a life without trails, including the righteous and the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9).God expect us to “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” in character (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). When your life track differs from your original plan, don’t be scared. It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” for or those who remain righteous, tender and humble in any circumstances (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we learn. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between brain and stomach is bidirectional. Excessive sugar intake sabotages our immune system and 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of Type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), around half diabetic cases experience nerve damage. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” It’s worth noting that muscle plays an incredible role in the regulation of blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that reduced muscle mass is associated with high blood sugar level. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. Be aware of the power of tenderness, humility and subconscious mind. Be aware of the cost of negative emotions, such as suppressed anger and sorrow. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Every spoken word will be recorded by God. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale, because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace nor unconditional love. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. Inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Do not ignore negative emotions. Take time to deal with your old mental wounds once and for all. 腸胃健康和大腦健康息息相關!健康建議:無糖抹茶豆漿X鹼性飲食X練肌肉。鈣是解痛劑,多攝取鈣的食物或鈣片取代止痛藥。維生素E主修復,可加速傷口癒合,預防留疤。高壓容易緊張族群可多攝取維生素B和鈣的食物。一夜白頭是心理影響身體的鐵證,勿低估負面情緒對身體的傷害,包括生悶氣或憂傷!(詳情請參看網站醫療專欄)
