The Landmark Johns Hopkins Sulforaphane Cancer Study Your Doctor Isn’t Telling You About
Truth be told, conventional medicine has made some strides (let’s call them baby steps) over the last 40 years when it comes to disease prevention. Mainstream medicine does continue to tout the “slash-and-burn” method as the be-all and end-all for treating cancer after the fact. Yet the concept of taking proactive steps to reduce the risk of cancer (like exercising and eating “healthier”) is now fairly commonplace.

The ruling specifically zeroes in on BRCA1, a gene associated with an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer; the case being a United States biotech company Myriad Genetics vs. Australian resident Yvonne D'Arcy.

Soy Isoflavones for Menopause – or for Cancer?

The debate on the health benefits—and risks—of concentrated isoflavones from soy products, red clover and kudzu (phytoestrogens) goes on. Fermented soy products have been used for years, most notably in the East, to help women manage menopausal symptoms including hot flushes. As more research has been carried out, some of it showing very clear beneficial effects, more supplements containing concentrated phytoestrogens have come onto the market, including in the EU.

30 Years of Breast Screening: 1.3 Million Wrongly Treated

The breast cancer industry's holy grail (that mammography is the primary weapon in the war against breast cancer) has been disproved. In fact, mammography appears to have created 1.3 million cases of breast cancer in the U.S. population that were not there.

A new study finds vitamin D - the 'sunlight vitamin' - strikes to the very heart of breast cancer malignancy

Breast cancer is not what most people think. Beneath the intimidating statistics that make it seem like a juggernaut of inevitability or a time bomb of genetic determinism ready to go off in the asymptomatic breasts of millions of women, a far more complex conversation is occurring among clinicians and researchers concerning the true nature and causes of cancer, and why conventional therapies fail to turn the tide against the second highest cause of death in the Western world. To fully appreciate this, one must go to the first hand research itself.

Breast Cancer Screening: How Komen Oversold the Benefits of Mammography

The breast cancer advocacy group, Susan G. Komen for the Cure — which famously introduced the world to the pink ribbon — used misleading statistics in an advertising campaign to overstate the benefits of mammography, while ignoring its risks, say researchers publishing in the BMJ.

Double mastectomies offer almost no survival benefit for breast cancer patients, 20-year study proves

Western medicine is so aggressive and cut-throat that even the idea of prevention has been skewed to the point of chopping off and cutting out body parts for "preventing" cancer that isn't even there.

Mammograms Linked To An Epidemic of Misdiagnosed Cancers

For most of the twentieth century, mastectomy was the first line treatment for Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS), and younger patients were more likely to undergo the procedure. Even after lumpectomy and radiotherapy were shown to be at least as effective for invasive cancer as mastectomy, still in 2002, 26% of DCIS patients were still receiving mastectomy.

New Study: 80% of Early-Stage Breast Cancers DO NOT Progress to More Concerning Forms

Millions of asymptomatic women undergo breast screening annually because their doctors tell them to do so. Not only are these women’s presumably healthy breasts being exposed to highly carcinogenic x-rays, but thousands have received a diagnosis of ‘breast cancer’ for entirely benign lesions that, when left untreated, would have caused no harm to them whatsoever – even 20 years later.

Ovarian Cancer: What We Think We Know May Harm Us

The Life Saving Intervention with Lethal Risks

A powerful new study on the failure of mammograms to protect women against breast cancer, curiously absent from mainstream news health reporting, was published this month in The European Journal of Public Health, and is forcing the scientific and medical community, policy makers and the public at large to ask the question: can the now worldwide practice of mass breast screenings in healthy (asymptomatic) populations be justified when they increase the incidence of localised stage 'cancers' without reducing the incidence of advanced cancers?
