Beat Breast Cancer for 8 Cents a Day‏

July 2nd, 2007

“Some stunning news hit my desk this week about fighting cancer, especially Breast Cancer.

A special formula containing high potency Calcium along with Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) reduced cancer rates for ALL FORMS OF CANCER, by a staggering 77% in an exhaustive four year trial.

The findings bolster a recent study which uncovered a direct association between Calcium and Vitamin D intake and a far lower risk of breast cancer.

We have the formula used in the test, and it costs just 8 cents a day”

Every 24 Seconds Someone is Diagnosed with Breast Cancer

While billions of dollars of government and special donor research money has been spent fighting this dreadful and often fatal disease, the odds are that a shocking one out of seven women will develop this disease.

Breast cancer has become the second largest cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer, and the leading cause of death for women between 35 and 54.

Ever since the so called “war on cancer” was declared, more women have died of breast cancer than the total number of Americans who lost their lives in World Wars I and II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, COMBINED!

Clearly we are in the midst of a breast cancer epidemic. (Read my February 4th newsletter, “Breast Cancer Is Stealing Our Best & Brightest“)

By the time a tell-tale lump is detected in the breast, there is already an estimated 45 billion cancer cells present, and some of these malignant cells have metastasized to other parts of the body.

There is hope – a light at the end of a dark tunnel.

Breast Cancer is Stealing our Best and Brightest

February 4th, 2007

Just this past week the terrifying scourge of breast cancer took two of our best and brightest women. Unfortunately, this is not rare.

Both so very young.

One was Angelina Jolie’s mother, just 56 years of age. The second was the famously insightful reporter, Molly Ivins, whose syndicated column was read by millions every week. Molly Ivins was a gem. In a world where women’s voices are still rare, her’s could not be ignored.

She wasn’t just good at what she did, she was great. I didn’t always agree with her, but I always read her. She had a unique way of seeing the world and putting it into words that made a Molly Ivins column totally recognizable and often unforgettable. She was passionate and inspirational, and now that passion and inspiration is gone. Stolen by breast cancer. Another one lost. When will this end?   

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), things are not getting any better. Death rates from cancer in this country are down, albeit just barely. In 2007, NCI predicts 178,480 women and 2,030 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer; 40,460 women and 450 men will die of it. Molly Ivins was one of the 41,000 we lost.

It may be better, but it is hardly good enough. It is an epidemic, a war just like Iraq, spiraling out of control by the second.

One of my patients had a double mastectomy last week against my passionate urging not to, and is now embarking on debilitating and crippling radiation treatment. The first reports from the pathologist are grim.
