Profiteering cancer industry still clueless why more black women are getting breast cancer (hint: lack of vitamin D)

Breast cancer industry

Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) A new report from the American Cancer Society shows that more black women are being diagnosed with breast cancer than ever before. The cancer rate for African Americans has risen exponentially over the past decade. One contributing factor is that mammograms and oncologists are not making distinctions between benign growths and invasive cancers. This forces many people to be given false cancer diagnoses.

In the eye-opening report, "Overdiagnosis and Overtreatment in Cancer: An Opportunity for Improvement," researchers reveal the following: "The word 'cancer' often invokes the specter of an inexorably lethal process; however, cancers are heterogeneous and can follow multiple paths, not all of which progress to metastases and death, and include indolent disease that causes no harm during the patient's lifetime."

Uptick in breast cancer rates because of false diagnoses

Literally, tens of millions of people are being diagnosed with cancers that don't exist (e.g. ductal carcinoma in situ.) Gripped by fear and controlled by what insurance covers, patients are coerced by their oncologists to undergo hurried, invasive chemotherapy "treatments."

The chemotherapy destroys the person's mind and immune system and can even make them susceptible to life-threatening diseases. If the patient survives for five years while undergoing the unnecessary chemotherapy, they may be declared "cancer free" even though they might not have had real cancer in the first place, and even if they die from cancer or toxic chemicals the very next day. This deceptive practice boosts the reported efficacy rate of the chemotherapy drugs.

That's probably why this new American Cancer Society report found that breast cancer mortality rates have dropped 36 percent since 1989. The cancer industry claims to have averted 249,000 breast cancer deaths through standard chemotherapy, but it's possible that none of these people had real breast cancer in the first place. The cancer industry, which rakes in $100 billion a year off chemotherapy, is fooling people with false diagnoses that do not distinguish between invasive cancers and benign lesions.

Dark-skinned people unable to effectively assimilate vitamin D from the sun

Over the past decade, breast cancer diagnoses for black women have increased in frequency. Breast cancer rates for black women were 124 per 100,000 women in 2002. By 2012, the rate of black women with breast cancer rose to 135 cases per 100,000, an increase of 11 women per 100,000. (Diagnoses for white women rose 3 per 100,000 in that same time.)

One issue that oncology researchers continue to ignore is that people with black skin who live in northern latitudes do not effectively absorb vitamin D from the sun. (Vitamin D is an important component for helping the body prevent cancer altogether.)

Research published in the journal Dermato-Endocrinology confirms that, in northern latitudes, the dark skin of African Americans struggles to absorb enough sunlight to produce a healthy amount of vitamin D for their immune system. The human body uses the ultraviolet rays of the sun to make vitamin D in the inner layers of the skin. Research by Rick Kittles at the University of Chicago suggests that anyone with black skin living north of Texas, Tennessee or North Carolina is deficient in vitamin D. He suggests that 75 percent of African Americans are deficient in vitamin D because the rays of the sun are at such a low angle.

Instead of promoting more mammograms (which do not distinguish between indolent lesions and invasive cancers) the American Cancer Society and oncologists around the country could make distinctions and direct patients toward less invasive techniques. Instead of scaring patients into ravaging chemotherapy, oncologists could help patients supplement with vitamin D. What if oncologists didn't intervene right away with chemotherapy? What if they helped women fuel their bodies with the nutritional components they are deficient in?
