Natural ways to prevent Breast Cancer
Natural remedies should not be thought of as an alternative to conventional treatment for breast cancer, they can help to prevent it and there is some evidence that they may help to combat the spread of the disease (metastasis) to other organs... In our own research these remedies are very useful and have helped many people fully recover from this disease.
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the world and mainly occurs in women in the 50 to 65 age group. It can strike younger women and even men (since both sexes have breast tissue). It has been estimated that one in nine women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives and the incidence has been rising steadily since the 1970s, although fortunately the death rate among sufferers has been on a decline.
Breast cancer usually comes to light as a painless lump in the breast, but sometimes the lump can be painful to the touch, or there may be breast pain without any obvious lump. If you find a lump in your breast, see your doctor straight away to get it checked out, but don't immediately assume it must be cancer, since around 85 per cent of breast lumps are benign.
Please stop using chemical laden deodorants stop using tight Bras and do not wear a bra more then 8 hours a day. Use vitamin-D daily and eat more fruits and vegetables. Do a breast massage regularly. This massage will help get rid of the toxins in the lymph.
Having iodine in your diet prevents breast cancer..
"Vitamin C is very important as in the body Vitamin C is converted to hydrogen peroxide which has anti cancer activity..Most vitamin C therapies involve taking the substance orally. However, the UI scientists have shown that giving vitamin C intravenously -- and bypassing normal gut metabolism and excretion pathways -- creates blood levels that are 100 -- 500 times higher than levels seen with oral ingestion. It is this super-high concentration in the blood that is crucial to vitamin C's ability to attack cancer cells.
The study shows that vitamin C breaks down easily, generating hydrogen peroxide, a so-called reactive oxygen species that can damage tissue and DNA. The study also shows that tumor cells are much less capable of removing the damaging hydrogen peroxide than normal cells.
