Consumer Culture causes Breast Cancer

Five-fold variation in breast cancer incidence rates across the globe tells us that living in developed areas increases risk

Families and friends of women touched by breast cancer are calling for increased attention to research into the environmental causes – any factors that are not hereditary. The goal is to find causes of breast cancer that can be reduced or eliminated to prevent the disease.

To build an evidence-based strategy for preventing breast cancer, Susan G. Komen for the Cure invited Silent Spring Institute and their partners at Harvard University, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and the University of Southern California to assess the scientific evidence on environmental causes. In the first year, the team reviewed areas of emerging research that promise to reveal new opportunities for risk reduction:

  • environmental pollutants
  • dietary factors
  • body size and shape
  • physical activity
  • interactions of these factors with inherited genes

The links below provide access to

  • databases developed from published scientific research
  • review articles recently published in the journal CANCER.

The databases include bibliographic information, key methods and findings, and critical assessments of the strength of the evidence:

  • reviews of approximately 450 articles reporting on human breast cancer studies
  • information on 216 chemicals identified as mammary carcinogens in animal studies

This information guides future research and decision-making that is grounded in the strength of current evidence.

Results demonstrate that much more work needs to be done. The overwhelming majority of chemicals identified as animal mammary carcinogens or hormone disrupting compounds have never been included in a study of breast cancer in women. Further, the vast majority of chemicals we are exposed to have never been tested to see if they cause cancer in an animal study.

One Response

  1. A good friend of ours just went through an ordeal with breast cancer. The incidence of breast cancer has increased to 1 in 8 women, with 4,000 new cases weekly.

    You might ask, could there be a preventive measure which is safe, cheap and widely available that has been overlooked?

    The answer is YES , and it’s the essential mineral, Iodine , which was added to table salt in 1924 as part of a national program to prevent Goiter. It turns out that this same Iodine in table salt is the key to breast cancer prevention as proposed by the following list of prestigious doctors: Guy Abraham, MD, Robert Derry MD PHD, David Brownstein MD, George Flechas MD, Donald Miller, M.D.

    Dr. B.A. Eskin published 80 papers over 30 years researching iodine and breast cancer, and he reports that iodine deficiency causes breast cancer and thyroid cancer in humans and animals. Iodine deficiency is also known to cause a pre-cancerous condition called fibrocystic breast disease.

    Ghent published a paper in 1993 which showed iodine supplementation works quite well to reverse and resolve fibrocystic changes of the breast, and this is again the subject of a current clinical study.

    Despite its obvious potential, not much has been done with Iodine treatment over the past 40 years in the United States. Since iodine isn’t patentable and is therefore unlikely to be profitable to market, there is no money to fund studies for “FDA approval”. However, FDA approval is not required since Iodine is already an additive to table salt at the supermarket.
