More than 10,000 additives* are allowed in food. Some are direct additives that are deliberately formulated into processed food. Others are indirect additives that get into food during processing, storage and packaging. How do you know which ones to avoid because they raise concerns and have been linked to serious health problems, including endocrine disruption and cancer?
Aspartame, the Artificial Sweetener, Being Considered Under California’s Proposition 65 for CARCINOGEN labeling
Please send your email to Sacramento in support of this! This may turn into the death knell for the manufacturers and users of this dangerous chemical, found in more than 10,000 food products and in over 6,000 medications.
If it works, this test may be a lot safer than mammograms because there would be no radiation exposure. It could possibly lead to earlier and more accurate diagnoses as well.
Privately insured people with cancer were diagnosed earlier and lived longer than those who were uninsured or were covered by Medicaid, according to two recent studies.
Breast Cancer Action has developed a new brochure. It’s designed to provide information about breast cancer screening for women of “average risk” who don’t have a family history of breast cancer, have not been diagnosed with breast cancer, and have no other known risk factors.
Studies of the causes of cancer often focus on tobacco, alcohol and over-exposure to the sun. But the World Health Organization and many other scientists believe nearly 1 in 5 cancers are caused by chemicals and other environmental exposures—not only in the workplaces, but in consumer products, food, water and air.
The Center for Food Safety says: A number of studies over the past decade have revealed that genetically engineered foods can pose serious risks to humans, domesticated animals, wildlife and the environment. Human health effects can include higher risks of toxicity, allergenicity, antibiotic resistance, immune-suppression and cancer. As for environmental impacts, the use of genetic engineering in agriculture will lead to uncontrolled biological pollution, threatening numerous microbial, plant and animal species with extinction, and the potential contamination of all non-genetically engineered life forms with novel and possibly hazardous genetic material.
Nearly half of early breast cancer cases that meet traditional criteria for high risk can be treated just as effectively without chemotherapy as with it, according to the study, which used genetic testing to analyze tumors.
A new EWG analysis of federal data from nationwide drinking water tests shows that the compound contaminates water supplies for more than 200 million Americans in all 50 states. Yet federal regulations are stalled by a chemical industry challenge that could mean no national regulation of a chemical state scientists in California and elsewhere say causes cancer when ingested at even extraordinarily low levels.
The problem with Pinktober is that it places the responsibility for getting breast cancer and recovering from breast cancer on the victims. Those who don’t recover don’t belong.
Based on 80 year old research about the Warburg effect, new trial puts patients on a so-called ketogenic diet. The trial is in its early stages, but showing positive results, and more trials will be starting.
On November 19, 2015, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) became the first government agency in the world to approve a genetically engineered food animal for sale and human consumption. It will be in stores soon, and it is not required to be labeled.
Study shows little benefit from radiation for women over 70 with early stage breast cancer
Pinktober is almost here. All the cancer charities are asking for our money and our time. Some want us to raise money for them by running in marathons, and every October we are encouraged to buy products that wear pink ribbons. Cancer patients and their supporters have responded with great generosity. But all cancer charities are not equal. Sadly, many of the cancer charities have been corrupted, taking corporate money and participating in pinkwashing
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that worldwide more people died from breast cancer than from malaria in 2015, yet, the money available for cancer prevention and treatment in the developing world is only a fraction of the sums spent on diseases such as HIV, TB and malaria.
It’s been known for more than 20 years that black women have worse survival rates than white women after a breast cancer diagnosis. When the women were asked about their main concerns after treatment, the maiin issue was medical mistrust.
They were concerned that the information they were given wasn’t as good as the information given to white women, leaving them less prepared to deal with challenges after treatment had ended.
Dense breast tissue, which is very common, makes it much harder to diagnose breast cancer on mammograms, and breast density is also a risk factor for breast cancer.
EWG reveals that these blowouts create exposure to known carcinogens. Urge your legislators to pass the Personal Care Products Safety Act.
Apparently nobody knows the reason for this –is it something in the diet, or different access to medical care, or something else?
Epstein-Barr virus is one of the most common viruses to infect humans, and it also appears to play a role in breast cancer. The findings of a recent study may have uncovered the mechanism behind this relationship.
