There are cases of a wide range of women in the Western world who suffer from changes in the breast, which is a direct result of the menstrual cycle and believed that up to 70 percent of women affected by this. This has become women may find uncomfortable because of their breasts becoming tender, swollen or lumpy. It is important to find an explanation for this situation that you know and natural treatments and medicine available for this issue of women’s health.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I would like to add my two cents to the discussion: I am a breast cancer survivor and I boycott Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Instead of jumping on the bandwagon pink popular of all, I boycott “consciousness” of breast cancer and pink ribbon campaigns, subscribe to the issue of approach is not a cure for this epidemic of breast cancer.
In my view highly critical of the month of awareness of breast cancer such as King Samantha, World Health Organization, in her book, Pink Ribbons, Inc. “traces how she turned from breast cancer disease, the stigmatization and the tragedy of individual industry market-driven to survive.” King emphasizes that companies, under the guise of charitable work, “turn their computers on a massive promotion of treatment for the disease while dwarfing public health prevention efforts and stifling calls for an investigation into why and how breast cancer affects such a large number of people.” I could not agree more.
I fully support the Breast Cancer Action, an organization based in San Francisco are helping to transform breast cancer from a private medical crisis to public health emergencies. I love Think Before You Pink campaign, which “calls for more transparency and accountability by companies that are involved in fund-raising breast cancer, and encourages consumers to ask critical questions about pink ribbon promotions.” Think Before You Pink also highlights “pinkwashers” – companies that are “designed to care for breast cancer through the promotion of the pink ribbon campaign, but manufacture products that are associated with this disease.”
In the spirit of focusing on the cause of no cure, Rita Arditti in CommonDreams.org writes about “Why cancer and the loss of us,” making the case for a rise in breast cancer to coincide with the flood of synthetic chemicals in our environment since the 1950s, calling to discuss any possible links .
“Is there evidence that these substances cause breast cancer?” You ask. “I have studied enough are they? Well, no. We need to know more about the duration and timing, and patterns of exposure, which may be as important as medication.”
Do not miss the chemicals were lists of examples are some of the same chemicals that those of us with multiple chemical sensitivity to react negatively.
Since World War II, has gone the spread of synthetic chemicals along with the increased incidence of breast cancer. And used about 80000 synthetic chemicals in the United States today, and every year more than about 1000. Have been examined and about 7 percent of them for their health effects. Can these chemicals persist in the environment and accumulate in our bodies. According to a recent review by the Silent Spring Institute in Newton 0.216 chemicals and radiation sources cause breast cancer in animals.
Almost all of the chemicals cause mutations, tumors caused most of the multiple devices and types of animals, and the results generally believed to indicate that it is likely to cause cancer in humans. However, a few were examined closely by the regulatory bodies. There is concern about benzene, which is in gasoline; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which is in the air pollution from vehicle exhaust, tobacco smoke, foods charred; ethylene oxide, which is used widely in the environment, medical, methylene chloride, and solvents commonly used in paints and adhesives.
Where the focus should be, and not on the tape in a beautiful feel-good color that pops up in the calendar once a year and sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry and cosmetics.
