Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer In Men


When it comes to breast cancer, men may not have celebrities such as Suzanne Somers, Gloria Steinem and Olivia Newton John to help increase awareness of the disease, although they do have actor Richard Roundtree of “Shaft”fame, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993 and who underwent successful breast removal and chemotherapy. But that does not mean breast cancer in men is any less serious than it is in women, even though it is far less common. Recent breast cancer statistics report that an estimated 2,190 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, and about 410 men will lose their lives because of the disease.

Cannabinoids: a new hope for breast cancer therapy?


Breast cancer is a very common disease that affects approximately 1 in 10 women at some point in their lives. Importantly, breast cancer cannot be considered a single disease as it is characterized by distinct pathological and molecular subtypes that are treated with different therapies and have diverse clinical outcomes.

Proof that a living foods diet reverses breast cancer


Globally speaking, breast cancer cases have gone from 641,000 (in 1980) to over 1.4 million in 2010 - with 425,000 deaths associated to this preventable tragedy. Naturally, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation suggest that we need to "strengthen established health-system responses to reduce breast and cervical cancer." But, where's the demand for a cure?

Bad science exposed within breast cancer research


Is it bad science; marketing deception or outright medical malpractice within the cancer industry? There is growing evidence that pharmaceutical-sponsored, breast cancer studies are producing fraudulent data. Honest researchers reveal that patient outcomes and adverse side effects of phase three clinical trials are being twisted to favor the drug companies – even when the results suggest serious problems with using these drugs.

Citrus fruit significantly reduces breast cancer risk in latest systematic review


A high intake of citrus fruits lowers breast cancer risk in women by 10 percent, according to a new systematic review of past studies. But importantly, "high" intake was only 17 to 33 grams daily in one of the studies analyzed, and this provided a 32 percent risk reduction of breast cancer.

Breast cancer overdiagnosis skyrocketing as women everywhere receive dangerous and unnecessary mammograms


The studies just keep rolling on in with more and more evidence showing that the breast cancer screening ritual known as mammography is not everything that it is cracked up to be. One of the latest studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), for instance, analyzed more than 30 years' worth of data on mammography and found that nearly 1.5 million women have been needlessly treated for cancers that were not at all harmful or that technically did not even exist.

Hospitals, cancer centers now getting women drunk at 'mammogram parties' to lure them into having their breasts irradiated


The cancer industry has apparently become so desperate to recruit new customers that it is now resorting to what can only be described as a type of medical date rape. A number of hospitals and cancer centers across the country are reportedly now holding community-driven "mammogram parties," a deceptive cancer marketing scheme that basically entails deliberately getting women tipsy or drunk on alcohol with their friends and neighbors in order to entice them into getting medically molested via mammograms.
