Breast Cancer Epidemic Still Raging After 30 Years of "Awareness" and Pink Ribbons

Think Before You Pink: Toxic Time Is Up
by Annie Sartor, MsMagazine.com, 24 October 2013

Why is the breast cancer epidemic still raging after 30 years of “awareness” and pink ribbons?

Each year, corporations pack the shelves with pink-ribbon products, surrounding us with “breast cancer awareness” messages. These products help to raise billions of dollars in the name of breast cancer, yet more than 40,000 women in the U.S. still die of the disease every year. And many corporations sell pink-ribbon products that actually contain chemicals linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. At Breast Cancer Action, we call this blatant hypocrisy “pinkwashing.”

World Health Organization's Monograph on Cancer Risk from Mobile Phones and Other Sources of Radiofrequency Radiation

Most Significant Government Health Report on Mobile Phone Radiation Ever Published
PRLog, 24 April 2013

Today [24 April 2013], the World Health Organization's (WHO) new monograph on cancer risk from mobile phones and other sources of RF radiation is featured on the home page of the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

PRLog (Press Release) - Apr. 24, 2013 - BERKELEY, Calif. -- The new W.H.O. monograph explains why the W.H.O. classified mobile phone and other sources of radiofrequency radiation as "possibly carcinogenic" for humans. (1) These forms of electromagnetic radiation have been categorized as a Group 2B carcinogen along with lead, automobile exhaust and other toxic substances. (2)

According to the monograph:

• "Positive associations have been observed between exposure to radiofrequency radiation from wireless phones and glioma and acoustic neuroma" (p.421).

• “Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).” (p. 421)

The Deliberate Lies They Tell About Diabetes

At least 26 million Americans are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and another 79 million are prediabetic.  What’s hidden behind medical smokescreen is that Type 2 diabetes is completely preventable. The cure lies in a true understanding of the underlying cause (which is impaired insulin and leptin sensitivity) and implementing simple, inexpensive lifestyle adjustments that spell phenomenal benefits to your health.

The Deliberate Lies They Tell About Diabetes
by Dr. Mercola (this excellent article probably dates from 2011 and is posted in full without several of the images)

There is a staggering amount of misinformation on diabetes, a growing epidemic that afflicts more than 26 million in the United States today. The sad truth is this: it could be your very OWN physician perpetuating this misinformation

Most diabetics find themselves in a black hole of helplessness, clueless about how to reverse their condition. The bigger concern is that more than half of those with Type 2 diabetes are NOT even aware they have diabetes.

Diabetes: Symptoms of an Epidemic

The latest diabetes statistics 1 echo an increase in diabetes cases, both diagnosed and undiagnosed. By some estimates, diabetes has increased more than 700 percent in the last 50 years!

How to Reduce Cholesterol Levels by Natural Means

Too many doctors write a prescription for statins for their patients the moment they see cholesterol levels that are too high. This was the case with my (now former) family doctor. I told him, “Give me a few months to change eating habits, and the levels will be lower”. We must challenge our doctors’ recommendations because sometimes medications can be more harmful than beneficial, as is the case with statins prescribed to persons who have not had a previous cardiac event. This article gives excellent dietary advice to those persons who wish to lower their cholesterol levels through natural means.

Getting Cholesterol Too Low May Put Older Woman at Risk
People's Pharmacy, 28 October 2013

Q. Dear Joe & Terry Graedon,

Thank you for all the information you make available to the public about alternatives to many pharmaceuticals. You are providing a needed service to the public.  I looked on your website for alternatives to statins to lower high cholesterol. I found a suggestion about using vinegar, but none of the respondents had reported whether it worked.  My cholesterol was 187 and my doctor has said if I don't lower it in three months on my own, he wants to put me on statins. I would prefer not to take such drugs.  Do you know of any other options that might work? I would like to lower my cholesterol naturally before my next appointment.  Again, thank you for your public service.


A. Dear Pearl,

Thank you for your thoughtful question. If you have not had a cardiac event, we're not sure your doctor would be doing you any favors by prescribing a statin. In fact, if your total cholesterol is 187, we are hard put to understand why he would want to lower your cholesterol levels any further.

United States: Doctors Urge Parents to Ban Cell Phones, Internet Use in Children's and Teenagers' Bedrooms

Children and teenagers who use cell phones and Internet-
enabled devices in their bedrooms at night are at higher
risk of bullying, anxiety and other mental disorders, and
also for obesity.  (Photo:  Getty Images/ Thinkstock)
Is digital technology threatening humanity ? Dr. Sherry Turkle, MIT development psychologist, interviewed recently by Bill Moyers, says parents should create device-free places: the kitchen, diningroom, and cars. The average teen-aged girl is interrupted every 4 minutes with a text message. We are texting in the classroom, in church, at funerals...

Ban cellphones, Internet use in children’s and teenagers’ bedrooms, U.S. doctors urge parents

National Post, 28 October 2013

CHICAGO — Doctors 2 parents: Limit kids’ tweeting, texting & keep smartphones, laptops out of bedrooms. #goodluckwiththat.

The recommendations are bound to prompt eye-rolling and LOLs from many teens but an influential pediatricians group says parents need to know that unrestricted media use can have serious consequences.

It’s been linked with violence, cyberbullying, school woes, obesity, lack of sleep and a host of other problems.

Canada: WiFi in Schools and Heart Irregularities

Although this article dates from 2010, the situation regarding WiFi in Canadian schools has not changed all that much.  

School Board threatens to fine Parents and expel Students because of WiFi concerns
by Dr. Magda Havas, 26 November 2010

Very disturbing state of affairs that we are experiencing in Ontario Schools. School Board is threatening to fine parents and to expel students (click here for story) and they are also threatening teachers who do not toe the line regarding WiFi. What kind of country has Canada become? How can educational authorities be so insensitive, so militant, and so ignorant? Perhaps someone should follow the money because none of this makes any sense.
All parents are asking for is that computers be wired when they connect to the internet! In some areas the parents are even willing to pay for the costs of hardwiring their children’s school.

News from Geneva: Breast Cancer Is Striking More and More Young Women

Breast cancer is striking more and more young women
by Sophie Davaris, Tribune de Genève, 25 October 2013 (translated from French by the Editor of this blog.)

In Geneva, the most frequent cancer in young women sometimes occurs before age 40

Breast cancer is striking more and more women of all ages. If the overwhelming majority of the victims are over age 50, the proportion of young women afflicted with the disease is increasing. “Out of some 500 new cases diagnosed each year in Geneva, 40 to 50 concern women under age 40,” says Professor Monica Castiglione-Gertsch, responsible for the Medical Gynecological Oncology Unit at the University Hospital of Geneva (HUG). On the occasion of Breast Cancer Month, the specialists speak.

“The phenomenon, already observed in Geneva for several years, appears in other Western societies,” adds Professor André-Pascal Sappino, former head of cancer at HUG, now at the Grangettes Clinic. The Internet reports an increase of 25% in the number of cases over the last five years. The specialist confirms this, but it remains difficult to explain.

Belgium: New Regulation for the Sale of Mobile Phones in 2014

As of 1 March 2014, mobile phones that are specially designed for young children may no longer be introduced to the Belgian market. This concerns customised mobile telephones suitable for children younger than 7 years of age, for instance having few buttons and a shape attractive for children. Additionally, from this date forward, no advertising may be made for mobile phone use among the same age group.

New regulation for the sale of mobile phones as of 2014

Children’s mobile phones may no longer be sold. Besides this, the specific absorption rate (SAR) has to be listed for every mobile phone at the point of sale.

New regulation for the sale of mobile phones as of 2014

As of 1 March 2014, new regulations will apply to the sale of mobile phones. On the one hand the sale of mobile phones that have been specially manufactured for young children (under 7s) will be prohibited. On the other hand the SAR value will have to be listed everywhere where mobile phones are sold: in stores as well as for distance sales over the Internet.

Campaign Launched to Educate the Public Regarding Link Between Prolonged Skin Contact of Cell Phones and Breast Cancers

Dr. Lisa Bailey, one of California's top breast surgeons, says young women should never store their phones in their bras. “Until more data becomes available, efforts should be made to encourage cellular phone users to follow the recommendations of mobile device manufacturers and to avoid skin contact… In our practice, we have started to incorporate frequency of cellular phone use and placement location into part of our routine patient-history documentation. Physicians should document this behavior and also inform their patients that, until sufficient safety data becomes available, prolonged skin contact with cellular devices should be avoided.”

Environmental Health Trust Launches Campaign Aimed to Educate the Public Regarding Link Between Prolonged Skin Contact of Cell Phones and Breast Cancers
sbwire.com, 24 October 2013

Teton Village, WY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2013 -- Most women have no idea that cellphones are two-way microwave radios that should not be kept directly on the body warns Environmental Health Trust (EHT), a group promoting safer phone use especially for non-adult users and for pregnant users. The group has launched a public education campaign called “Save the Girls” that includes an online banner ad, media tour, doctor’s pamphlet and a social media campaign (#savethegirls).

For many young women today, tucking cellphones in the bra has become a cool, hip way to have easy access to these electronic devices. Women can jog, drive, shop or sit in darkened movie theaters, quickly responding to tingly vibrations at their breast. “The month of October serves as a reminder of breast cancer awareness, the media are packed with warnings about the disease.

Evergreen: CIA-Owned Airline Dropping Poison On You and Your Family

It is reported that chemtrail planes fly out of U.S. and other
NATO military bases in the U.S. and around the world.
Evergreen CIA Owned Airline: Dropping Poison On You And Your Family
freedumbnation.com, 2013

Evergreen Air is a CIA front company for chemtrail operations within the US, based out of Marana Air Park near Tucson Arizona and McMinville Oregon, near Portland.

A major missing piece of a grand conspiracy has been targeted by a drunk pilot. In a small town 30 miles east of the Pacific Ocean in Oregon is the center of a major global operation. At a bar in McMinnville, Oregon, an inebriated pilot attempted to impress one of the pretty ladies with tales of his secret mission.

The pilot’s pathetic attempt to portray himself as a Sean Connery or Daniel Craig caused him to (ante up) his importance and spill the secrets of the CIA’s asset Evergreen International Aviation.

The slurred revelations confirmed suspicions that Evergreen (International Aviation) is part of the major crap dump on the planet. Chemtrails made up aluminum, barium and other ingredients contribute to respiratory ills and change the acidity of the soil.

Facing Lawsuits Over Deadly Asbestos, Paper Giant Launched Secretive Research Program

Chrysotile asbestos
The following article is one in the Center for Public Integrity series, Toxic Clout: how industry uses well-paid experts to minimize the hazards of toxic chemicals and fend off liability, regulation, or both. The Atlanta-based company, Georgia-Pacific Corp., faced a nearly $1 billion in liability from its product, Ready-Mix, a putty-like building material, known as joint compound, containing the cancer-causing substance, asbestos. Named in more than 60,000 legal claims, the company sought salvation in a secret research program it launched in hopes of exonerating its product as a carcinogen.

The article also describes Daniel Stupino’s fight against the company. He regularly used the Georgia-Pacific joint compound, among other brands, in renovating apartments, sealing joints between sheets of drywall with the product. When he sanded it, he said, it was “like a snow … that penetrate[d] all over … in my body, my head, you know, my clothes.” His case against Georgia-Pacific settled mid-trial. He died of mesothelioma on Dec. 14, 2012, just before his 64th birthday.

Chrysotile asbestos, is the only type of asbestos still imported to the United States, with some 2.3 million pounds entering the country from Brazil in 2012. More than 107,000 people die of asbestos-related diseases each year, the World Health Organization estimates. “All types of asbestos cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, cancer of the larynx and ovary, and asbestosis (fibrosis of the lungs),” it warns. In all, 55 countries — but not the United States — have banned all forms of the mineral.

Facing lawsuits over deadly asbestos, paper giant launched secretive research program
by Jim Morris email, publicintegrity.org, 21 October 2013

In the spring of 2005, Georgia-Pacific Corp. found itself facing nearly $1 billion in liability from a product it hadn’t made in nearly three decades: a putty-like building material, known as joint compound, containing the cancer-causing mineral asbestos.

The Ugly Side of Statins

The Ugly Side of Statins: Systemic Appraisal of the Contemporary Unknown Unknowns
by Dr. Mercola, 9 October 2013

Statin cholesterol-lowering drugs are among the most widely prescribed drugs on the market, bringing in $20 billion a year.1 They are a top profit-maker for the pharmaceutical industry, in part due to relentless and highly successful direct-to-consumer advertising campaigns.

One in four Americans over the age of 45 now takes statins, typically for the primary prevention of heart attacks and strokes. Traditionally, primary prevention usually involves healthy lifestyle choices that support heart health, things like eating right and exercising, yet here we have millions of Americans taking pills instead.

Has anyone unbiased stopped to find out if these drugs are really the best method for heart attack prevention? After all, as researchers noted in the Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD):2

“…naive indiscriminate acceptance of novel mainstream therapies is not always advisable and prudence is required in unearthing harmful, covert side effects.”

'Casualty Catastrophe': Cell Phones and Child Brains

In the photo, brain cancer survivor attorney Bret Bocook
shows his own brain tumor caused by his heavy cell
phone use.  The top quarter of his brain responsible for
body balance had to be removed by surgeons.  A US
national rowing champion, now he can barely move.
Bret Bocook, brain tumor victim:  "The only way you can educate the public against big business is through lawsuits. That was how they did it with smoking. It was not until the District Attorneys in the United States got involved and sued the cigarette industry that they actually had a huge settlement, had to pay hundreds of millions of dollars for public education as to the dangers of smoking.

"That’s what’s going to happen with cell phones. It’s just unequivocal categorical that these things cause cancer. And also, they don’t want you to know that."

Protect Yourself from Laptops' Electromagnetic Radiation

NEVER use a laptop on your lap!  This woman is
irradiating her future baby with harmful
electromagnetic waves.
Protect yourself from laptops’ electromagnetic radiation
by Dr. Jon, emfhelp

Laptops and notebooks have become powerful enough to satisfy the computing needs of most people. They have also become very affordable and consequently gained much popularity especially with the younger generation and professionals. The problem with laptops is that they expose the user to significant levels of electromagnetic radiation. Their compact structure and light weight may lead to a false belief that they are relatively EMF safe. However using a laptop actually exposes you to higher levels of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) than using a bulkier desktop computer. There are several reasons for this and it is important to get a good grasp of the concepts as this will help you apply an effective laptop EMR defensive strategy and use your laptop safely.

Laptops emit several types of electromagnetic radiation

Long-Term Cholesterol Drug Use Doubles Risk of Breast Cancer

Long Term Cholesterol Drug Use Doubles Risk of Breast Cancer
by Sayer Ji, Contributing Writer for Wake Up World, 15 October 2013

A new study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention indicates that women who are long-term users of statin drugs have between 83-143% increased risk of breast cancer.[1]

The population-based case-control study utilized data from women in the Seattle-Puget Sound region, which included 916 invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and 1,068 invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) cases of 55-74 years of age diagnosed between 2000 and 2008, and a control of 902 women.

Why Is the Food Industry Poisoning Us With Trillions of Nanoparticles?

A new study reveals for the first time that the nanoparticle form of the common “whitening” agent known as titanium dioxide is capable of inducing “tumor-like” changes in exposed human cells.  Most of our risk of exposure comes from its use in toothpaste, drugs and excipient-heavy supplements as a pill coating, and food products, including even milk (to ‘improve’ appearance and texture).  “As with GMOs, the strategy [for nanoparticles] seems to be: release into the food supply en masse first; assess risks later (if ever).”  Once again, we are being treated like guinea pigs.

Why Is The Food Industry Poisoning Us With Trillions of Nanoparticles?
by Sayer Ji, Contributing Writer for Wake Up World, 7 October 2013

The U.S. food industry is notorious for poisoning the very consumers who drive their multi-billion dollar enterprise, even spending millions against their right to informed consent (truthful GMO labeling). So, is it any wonder that this deregulated and increasingly deranged juggernaut is experimenting on its own customer base by exposing them to trillions of toxic nanoparticles?

Cell Phones and Acoustic Neuroma: Comments on May 2013 Study from the United Kingdom

Read the following two articles on the May 2013 U.K. study linking long-term use of mobile phones and elevated risk of acoustic neuroma.

U.K. Acoustic Neuroma Link Fades Away After Data from 2009-11 Added
Microwave News, 6 October 6, 2013, Last updated 8 October 2013

The research group at the University of Oxford that reported a link between long-term use of a mobile phone and an elevated risk of acoustic neuroma (AN) in May now says that it is no longer there. In a short letter to the International Journal of Epidemiology (IJE), the Oxford team advises that when the analysis was repeated with data from 2009-2011, "there is no longer a significant association." Also gone, the team writes, is the "significant trend in risk with duration of use."

After ten or more years of phone use, the risk of AN is now only 17% higher with a confidence interval (0.60-2.27) that indicates the small increase is not significant. In their earlier paper, the Oxford group reported that the AN tumor risk more than doubled after ten years and was statistically significant (RR = 2.46, CI = 1.07–5.64).

"Young Women Are Getting More Aggressive and Larger Tumors Than Older Women": Is One of the Reasons Cell Phones?

Dr. Paul Michael, of Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada: “I don’t know if cellphones carried next to the breast cause cancer. Not all radiofrequency waves cause cancer. But I do know from a recent study that young women are getting more aggressive and larger tumors than older women. Is that because of diet, pollution, cellphones or whatever? I don’t know. But we also know the people who make cellphones say they shouldn’t be carried that way. I think we know enough about this to say it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to where you’re carrying your cellphone.”

Cellphone radiation raises concerns

Surgeon Dr. John West Addresses Cancer - Cell Phone Link on 'Dr. Oz Show'

OCMA Corner: Surgeon Addresses Cancer - Cell Phone Link on ‘Dr. Oz Show’
Physicians News Network, 15 September 2013

Dr. John West, a breast cancer surgeon at Breastlink in Orange County, recently traveled to New York City to film an upcoming episode with Dr. Oz’s TV show.

The episode focuses on suspected cell phone-related breast cancer in young women.

Dr. West, who is also the co-founder of the Be Aware Foundation, which funds clinical research through a partnership with Breastlink, said the Dr. Oz show contacted him after linking him to Tiffany Frantz.

The young woman drew wide media attention after being diagnosed with breast cancer in the area where she’s been storing her call phone inside her bra.

“We don’t have any scientific proof that cell phones cause cancer,” Dr. West told PNN last week. “It could be coincidence that women develop an unusual cancer right there on the breast, or this could be the tip of the iceberg.”

Today about 40% of college women keep their cell phones inside the bra.
