Each time we hear of another friend who’s been diagnosed with breast cancer, we feel a little chill as we wonder: what about me?
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women and men worldwide. We’ve either had it or know someone who has.
There are some specific physical factors seen in women with breast cancer. Here are the main ones (with my intuited percentage of their degree of risk):
- age (35% -only about 10 – 15% of breast cancers occur in women younger than 45)
- genetics/family history (15%)
- early menstruation (10%)
- having children late in life or no children (10%),
- late menopause (5%)
- environmental chemicals (30-35%.)
Studies indicate (and intuition agrees) that the chemical most responsible is 4-nonylphenol, which binds to estrogen receptors in breast tissue. Part of the problem is that this chemical, which mimics estrogen, may last longer in the body than natural estrogen.
Diet seems the most significant source of exposure to nonylphenol for humans. Seafood in particular was found to have a high concentration of nonylphenol in several studies. (The production and use of this chemical is prohibited in the European Union due to its effects on health and the environment.)
If you want to know your risk of breast cancer in the future (by my intuitive calculation), I’m offering it to the first 15 people who email me with your full name and location.
Why in the world would I want to know?? you may be asking.
Because being forewarned gives you the gift of time and effective ways of decreasing your risk with the help of able and experienced professionals.
And your own risk may be zero. You, individually, may have practically no risk of ever having breast cancer, or any cancer at all. After all, we’re all aging and most people never get cancer.
Again I say thank you for allowing me to be of service!
Vibrant health and a Light Spirit to you all,
