Cancer Can Be Avoided

1.  Every person has cancer cells in the body.  These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.  When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to mor
e than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and f
orming tumours.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water--best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Better Breast Cancer Early Detection Tool?

Part [1] [2] [3] 4

A new kind of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine helps doctors diagnose breast cancer earlier. Patients lie on their stomach and their breasts are placed in two coils, which focus radio waves and allow for more complete images that give a three-dimensional look inside the breast.

Two-hundred thousand women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in the United States.

Mammograms, however, may not be the best way to detect it. Now, there's a new test to help doctors pinpoint and treat breast cancer.

Suzette Lipscomb knows how to get the most out of every moment and she plans to share most of those moments with her little girl, Ava. "I always wanted a little girl, but I was a little afraid that I may pass on some type of tendency toward the disease," Suzette says.

The disease she feared? Breast cancer.


IMMUNOL is designed as an immune-modulator to help enhance and balance the immune system.

When necessary,
IMMUNOL helps activate the body's own defense systems against viral, ba
cterial, fungal, and other harmful organisms, while providing balanced nutrition and helping to relieve stress, thus improving and achieving optimal immune function.


Her grandmother beat it and so did she. It wasn't easy though, during her battle she was forced to make a difficult decision. Suzette says, "I was trying to make a decision as to whether or not to remove both my breasts."

Richard Reitherman, a breast radiologist at CAD Imaging Sciences in White Plains, N.Y., used the new CAD-sciences breast imaging system to help decide which treatment would work best.

For the test, patients lie on their stomach with their breasts in two coils, which help focus radio waves for more complete images.

"She and her surgeon know exactly how big the tumor is, so it gives her the best treatment," Dr. Reitherman says. For Suzette it showed her second breast was clear.

A dye injected into the patient helps pinpoint cancer and if chemotherapy treatments are working. In the scan, the red areas are cancer -- cancer that was missed in a mammogram.

In fact, 20 percent of women who don't have the CAD-sciences MRI will need a second surgery, something Suzette was able to avoid.

"I feel like the luckiest woman alive that not only did I have my cancer caught early enough that I'm alive, but that I was able to have a child," Suzette says.

Not all women are candidates for this CAD-sciences MRI. It's used for women who have already been diagnosed and need to know a course of action. It's also used for women who are high risk and have a family history of the disease. The procedure takes about 30 minutes; results are available 15 minutes later.

BACKGROUND: -- Women have a new imaging tool set to help diagnose breast cancer. The 3TP method generates a unique color-coded map by measuring changes (color and intensity) in contrast agent concentration in normal and cancerous tissues over time. It provides information that is not readily available from traditional mammography or MRI. In addition, the 3TP system is ergonomically designed to be comfortable for the patient, regardless of breast size.

HOW M.R.I. WORKS: -- Magnetic resonance imaging uses radiofrequency waves and a strong magnetic field instead of X-rays to provide clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues. These radio waves are directed at protons in hydrogen atoms -- one of the most abundant atoms in the human body, because of the body's high water content. The waves "excite" the protons, and when they "relax," they emit strong radio signals. A computer can turn those signals into a high-contrast image showing differences in the water content and distribution in various bodily tissues. It is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional X-ray mammography for the early diagnosis of breast cancer because women aren't exposed to the same radiation they experience with X-rays.

ABOUT BREAST CANCER: -- Breast cancer is a type of cancer in which cells in the breast become abnormal and grow and divide uncontrollably, eventually forming a mass called a tumor. Some tumors are benign, meaning that they do not invade other types of tissue, although if they become big enough, they can interfere with some bodily functions, such as the flow of blood or urine. Malignant tumors have cells that can invade nearby tissues. When a cancer "metastasizes," cells from the original tumor break off and travel to other parts of the body via the blood or lymph systems. More than 75 percent of breast cancers begin in the milk ducts within the breast. The next most common site is in the glandular tissue that makes the milk.

DO-IT-YOURSELF BREAST EXAM: -- Although it is not a substitute for regular tests by your doctor, women can perform a basic breast self-exam at home. In fact, more than 90 percent of all breast lumps are found by the women themselves. Breast tissue is shaped like a comma with the tail curving up toward the armpit, and normally has a lumpy feel. Because hormones can affect the breast tissue, the best time to examine your breasts is a few days after
your period ends, when hormone levels are stable.

Battle Against Breast Cancer Can Be Won: Types of Breast Cancer

Part 1     [2]     [3]     [4]

is the most common cancer among women (alongside skin cancer).  It is the second leading cause of cancer death (following lung cancer) for women in the United States.  


The American Cancer Society estimates that every year, about 175,000 people are diagnosed as having breast cancer, and about 43,300 deaths occur from the disease.

The lifetime risk of developing breast cancer for American women is one in eight.  Surveys suggest that it is the health problem most feared by women--but the good news is that, since 1990, the number of new cases of breast cancer has stopped increasing.

And if breast cancer is detected early, the five-year-and-beyond survival rates is very high--about 95 per cent.

The human breast is a gland that contains milk ducts, lobes, fatty tissue, and a network of lymphatic vessels.  Cancerous tumors can arise in virtually any part of the breast, and are most often detected when a woman feels a lump.

In general, cancerous lumps are firm, never go away, and are usually (though not always) pain-free.  The vast majority of breast lumps are not cancerous (many are cysts or fibroid masses), but there is no way to tell without a professional's examination.

A lump that seems to be growing or does not move when pushed may be cancerous or may simply be caused by normal fibrocystic changes during the menstrual cycle.  A biopsy is required to identify the lump.  

Breast cancer can also cause a yellow, bloody, or clear discharge from the nipple.

Types of Breast Cancer

People tend to think of breast cancer as a single entity, but there are actually different types of the disease.  Some types of breast cancer include the following:

1.  Adenoid cystic carcinoma, malignant cysto-sarcoma phylliodes, medullary carcinoma, and tubular carcinoma.  -- These and several other relatively uncommon types of breast cancer tend to be less aggressive than the other forms. 

2.  Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). -- This is a condition that most doctors consider to be breast cancer at its earliest stage.  DCIS is a cancer contained within the milk ducts.  The rate of this type of cancer has increased dramatically over the past twenty-five years.  Fortunately, the survival rate for DCIS is nearly 100 percent.

3.  Infiltrating ductal carcinoma. -- This is a cancer that arises in the lining of the milk ducts and infiltrates (invades) the surrounding breast tissue.  Approximately 80 percent of all cases of breast cancer are infiltrating ductal carcinomas.

4.  Inflammatory carcinoma. -- In this type of cancer, a tumor arises in the lining of the milk ducts, and, as it grows, it plugs the lymphatic and blood vessels.  The skin thickens and turns red, and the breast becomes extremely tender and looks infected.  This type of cancer spreads very quickly due to the rich blood and lymph vessel supply associated with the inflammatory reaction.

5.  Intraductal carcinoma in situ. -- This is a localized type of cancer in which cancerous cells grow within the ducts.  This type of cancer may not invade other tissues.

6.  Lobular carcinoma. -- A less common form of breast cancer, lobular carcinoma--breast cancer that arises in the loves--accounts for about 9 per cent of breast cancers.   Lobular carcinomas occasionally occur in both breasts simultaneously.

7.  Paget's disease of the nipple. -- This form of cancer occurs when cells from an underlying cancerous tumor migrate to the nipple.  The symptoms are itching, redness, and soreness of the nipple.  Paget's disease always signals the presence of primary ductal carcinoma elsewhere in the breast tissue.
