Lower your breast cancer risk with carotenoids
by PF Louis
(NaturalNews) According to a recent analysis of international studies, "Circulating Carotenoids and Risk of Breast Cancer: Pooled Analysis of Eight Prospective Studies," women whose diet include high carotenoid intake have a greatly reduced breast cancer risk.
An analysis of eight international studies were pooled by medical researchers and statisticians at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Their study was reported to the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in October of 2012.
Eight international studies of carotenoid blood levels totaling over 7,000 women were pooled. Slightly over 3,000 were breast cancer case studies and the other nearly 4,000 were control subjects. They were statistically adjusted to assorted variables.
Significantly high inverse associations were observed with high circulating carotenoid blood levels of alpha and beta carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin. These can all be found in fresh, organic fruits and vegetables listed later in this article.
Can't resist kicking Komen around someThat's information that you will never get from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the pink ribbon bunch that garners big bucks for their huge salaries, including over a half-million dollars a year for its director with executives receiving an average of a quarter-million dollars annually.
This "foundation" uses fear and bleeding heart guilt to sponsor fund raising events with the promise of a foreseeable cure that Big Pharma and the cancer industry will never deliver.
They promote early detection by guiding women into mammograms that even mainstream medicine considers faulty at best. (http://www.naturalnews.com/gallery/articles/Komen_Deception_BMJ.jpg)
Komen doesn't endorse or support free thermography sessions. Thermography reads tissue and organ temperature differences without using radiation or exerting pressure on the breasts. It has been developed to the point of recognizing pre-tumorous conditions in tissues before they fully develop fully into tumors.
If they were really concerned about early breast cancer detection being a life saver, they would promote thermography. Could be they don't because Komen owns stock in companies that manufacture mammogram equipment. (http://www.naturalnews.com)
They also obtain sponsors whose products, which are often carcinogenic, get cheap advertising and positive PR profiles by donating 10 percent of their sales from a specified period to Koman.
Now, Komen even has a Miss America contest contender, Alyn Rose, as a spokeswoman for them. Rose is committed to having both of her breasts surgically removed as a preventative measure because she thinks she's genetically predisposed to breast cancer. (http://www.naturalnews.com)
Less drastic measures for everyone elseExposing bare skin to sunshine or UVB tanning beds for at least 20 minutes, three or four times a week and/or adding vitamin D3 supplements may furnish enough vitamin D to help prevent cancer of any kind. Vitamin C supplements will offer protection as well.
Minimize sugar intake. Cancer cells thrive on it. But don't use artificial sweeteners. They are carcinogenic. So are most commercial cosmetic products and commercial household cleansers, even detergents. There are natural products from which to choose at health food stores as well as some Target stores.
Details of fresh, organic produce that provide the carotenoids listed in the study can be found here: (http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=116). Zeaxanthin is available as a supplement.
If you are concerned about early detection, request a hand manipulation tumor search or use thermography instead of radiation emitting mammograms.
