Dr Pam Popper: Breast Cancer Prevention Start in Childhood; Risks/Benefits of Tamoxifen
 
09:58
Diet, exercise, weight are risk factors for developing breast cancer, and the best time to start addressing these issues is age 2, according to an expert. Tamoxifen is reported to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer by 29%. The real risk reduction is less than 3% and the risks are significant. Consider this information before agreeing to take this drug!

Stop Breast Radiotherapy! Prefer Tamoxifen
 
13:53
Stop Breast Radiotherapy! Prefer Tamoxifen Radiotherapy is the most dangerous treatment of cancer. Nevertheless millions of breast cancer patients are exposed to it. Which is unnecessary. In order to prevent cancer recurrence, newly diagnosed women are irradiated. This procedure was recommended by the Early Breast Cancer Trialists' Collaborative Group (EBCTCG ) . Radiotherapy reduces cancer recurrence but has no effect on survival. Patients who underwent BCT have a higher breast cancer--specific survival rate compared with those treated with mastectomy alone or mastectomy with radiation for early-stage invasive ductal carcinoma" (Agarwal S. et al.) 2236 women were recruited into START-A 2215 women were recruited into START-B 67•2% deaths in START-B were from breast cancer 4•8% were related to cardiac disease only 13•7% were from other cancers 11•4% were from other non cancer causes, 2•8% were from unknown cause 64•7% of the deaths from cardiac disease were in women with left-sided primary tumours" Radiation destroys cells causing mammary gland cytopenia which later on is replaced by fibrocytes, and the breast becomes hardened. Breast shrinkage, and induration are indicators of similar changes in tissues under the isodose distribution. Breast is a biomarker of radiation damage in adjacent tissues. 48.6% of women had radiation damaged, lung, rib, sternum and heart. Damage intensity depends on their position under the isodose surface. It may be small but accumulates with time, and is irreversible. You have here two treatments for reduction of cancer recurrence. 1. Radiotherapy, with irreversible toxicities and no improvement of survival. 2. Tamoxifen, generally with reversible toxicities and improved survival. Tamoxifen does not damage with radiation isodoses, and is therefore much less risky Replace breast radiotherapy with tamoxifen. By the way I would not recommend any treatment for reducing tumor recurrence. Let it pop up and then put it to sleep.

Researchers are encouraged by the early results for patients using Z-endoxifen. The potent derivative of the drug tamoxifen was given to women with estrogen receptor positive metastatic breast cancer, the most common form of breast cancer in women whose disease has spread. The phase I study demonstrated endoxifen shows promise for patients whose cancer had continued to progress with standard estrogen therapies, including tamoxifen.

Preventing a side effect of breast cancer treatment
 
02:44
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) - Breast cancer specialists at Bethesda North Hospital say new technology is now making a big difference for women living longer after breast cancer. It's a whole new way of treating breast cancer. Rather than just focusing on killing the cancer, experts at the Mary Jo Cropper Center for Breast Care at Bethesda North Hospital are focusing on preventing one potentially deadly side effect for women in a very unique way. The call came in right after Ginny Reynolds' had what she thought was a routine mammogram. "I was at my mother's in Lexington, Kentucky and they said you have cancer," she remembered. That cancer turned out to be on Ginny's left side and she was referred to a team of radiology experts. Dr. Jess Guarnaschelli says we now know, "If we inadvertently treat the left breast with radiation, for these left sided breast cancer patients, we can cause cardiac injury 10, 20, 30 years down the line." So to spare her heart, Ginny was trained in what's now called a deep inspiration breath hold; she refers to it as, "This little thing of doing yoga breathing while you are having radiation can make such a big difference, it's amazing." "What that does is that pushes the diaphragm down and thins out the heart so that when we deliver radiation to the left breast, we can avoid the heart," said Dr. Guarnaschelli. When a patient holds their breath that way, it moves the chest wall away from the area that needs the radiation, so the heart is missed. Without the deep breath, the chest wall and the heart would be almost touching. So far in follow up visits for Ginny, her cancer is gone and her heart is unharmed.

Treatments For Breast Cancer - Manipal Hospital

This animated video is an informative elaboration on treatment of breast cancer. The treatment options for breast cancer include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. There are several surgical options depending on the severity of the cancer. A lumpectomy removes the tumour and a small amount of neighbouring tissues. Mastectomy involves removing the entire breasts and its tissues. Sentinel lymph node removal is typically performed in addition to lumpectomies and mastectomies. Here your surgeon will remove the lymph nodes closest to the tumour and check it for the presence of the cancer cells. If this node is clean, it may not be necessary to remove more lymph nodes. A prophylactic mastectomy, is a preventive surgery for high-risk woman that removes the entire breast to lower the risk of breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy X-rays or other types of radiations to kill the cancer cells or to keep them from growing. Internal radiation therapy can be used to treat the cancer from the inside of your body using needles, wires or catheters. Watch the video to know more on the treatment of breast cancer.

(All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) DESCRIPTION: A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial of flaxseeds in breast cancer patients finds flax appears to have the potential to reduce tumor growth in just a matter of weeks. The population data I mention at the beginning is from the previous video Flaxseeds & Breast Cancer Survival: Epidemiological Evidence (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseeds-breast-cancer-survival-epidemiological-evidence/). And before that, the role lignan phytonutrients may play in prevention: Flaxseeds & Breast Cancer Prevention (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseeds-breast-cancer-prevention/). I have some more videos coming up on the role diet plays in angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels to enable tumors to grow, but I have touched on it already in Cancer as an Autoimmune Disease and How Tumors Use Meat to Grow: Xeno-Autoantibodies. The results here are similar to what was found with the other class of phytoestrogens found in soy (Breast Cancer Survival and Soy). A study similar to this was carried out in prostate cancer patients: Flaxseed vs. Prostate Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseed-vs-prostate-cancer/). This is the final video of a series on flax. Also feel free to check out the ones on diabetes (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseed-vs-diabetes/) and sensitive skin (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseeds-for-sensitive-skin/).

Estradiol in Men: Myths and Facts
 
30:33
Nelson Vergel, author of the book Testosterone: A Man's Guide (Available on Amazon.com) and founder of the men's forum www.ExcelMale.com speaks about the role of estradiol in men and the consequences of over-treating estradiol with anastrozole and other aromatase inhibitors. Testosterone is the precursor hormone for estradiol. Estradiol is a hormone more abundant in women than men that is produced by the aromatization of testosterone in liver, fat and other cells. Nature created it for a reason. It has been shown to be responsible for healthy bone density but its role in men's sex drive, body composition and other variables is source of great debate. Many anti-aging or men's health clinics prescribe anastrozole, a blocker of estradiol production, to men who start testosterone replacement (TRT). Higher estradiol blood levels not only can cause breast tissue growth (gynecomastia) but also water retention (edema). Some people speculate that high estradiol can also lead to erectile dysfunction but no scientific papers have been published on this subject. Since higher testosterone blood levels can originate higher estradiol levels, the belief is that using anastrozole will prevent breast tissue growth and erectile dysfunction by lowering any potential increase in estradiol. However, we have no data on how high is too high when it comes to this hormone in men. Some even speculate that low testosterone-to-estradiol ratios may be more closely correlated to gynecomastia and erectile problems than estradiol alone. The truth about these speculations is starting to emerge but we still do not have enough data to say what the upper value of the optimal range of estradiol really is. We have a lot of evidence about the lower side of the optimal range since it has been found that estradiol blood levels below 10-20 pg/ml can increase bone loss in men. A recently published study also nicely demonstrated that low estradiol can be associated with higher fat mass and lower sexual function in men. So, be very careful when a clinic wants to put you on this drug without first justifying its use. Another concerning fact is that many clinics may be using the wrong estradiol test that may be over-estimating the levels of this hormone in men. An ultrasensitive estradiol test more accurately measures estradiol in men instead of the regular test that costs less. Fortunately, most men on TRT do not develop gynecomastia even without using anastrozole (gynecomastia is common in bodybuilders who may use high doses of testosterone, however). Those that have gynecomastia at TRT doses (100-200 mg of injectable testosterone or 5-10 grams of testosterone gel per day) may be genetically predisposed to having more aromatase activity or have liver dysfunction. Treating all men who start TRT with anastrozole from the start may be counterproductive since this may lower estradiol to very low levels. Some physicians monitor estradiol blood levels after 6-8 weeks of having a man start TRT alone using the ultrasensitive estradiol test to determine if anastrozole use is warranted. Doses range from 0.25 mg per week to some clinics using excessive doses of 1 mg three times per week. After 4-6 weeks on anastrozole its dose can be adjusted to ensure than estradiol is not under 20 pg/ml. Fortunately, many men on TRT do not need anastrozole at all. https://www.excelmale.com/showthread.php?2309-Role-of-Estradiol-in-Men-and-Its-Management For the newest video on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dIWx9wnAKc

Medical Edge: Breast cancer survivors tend to gain weight
 
01:49
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- New research raised concern for some survivors of breast cancer. Doctors at Johns Hopkins said their study showed survivors tended to gain more weight than women who were cancer-free. Melissa McGuire was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago. The 46-year-old has the BRCA gene, putting her at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer. Melissa said, I opted for a prophylactic mastectomy and hysterectomy and then post-surgery I was prescribed hormonal drugs, Tamoxifen. She said she started gaining weight right after, My weight shot up. I gained 30 pounds in a year and a half. New research from Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center showed breast cancer survivors gained weight at higher rates than women who have never had the disease. Dr. Kala Visvanathan with the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center said, When we looked even closer we saw these were primarily in women who were having chemotherapy or estrogen negative disease. Survivors who received chemo within five years of starting the study were twice as likely to gain at least 11 pounds. Researchers said chemo may increase inflammation and insulin resistance, disrupting the metabolism. Weight is one of those modifiable risk factors. We know that increases in weight can be associated with other chronic diseases, said Dr. Visvanathan. Melissa said losing weight wasn't easy. Shes trying to eat right and exercise, You really have to take charge of your own lifestyle and your body because the doctors aren't there with you every day giving you medication or holding your hands to keep your weight down. It's something you have to do yourself. Another reason to talk to your doctor about weight; previous studies suggested breast cancer survivors who gained weight may have a higher risk of recurrence.

Breast Cancer Prevention: Effective Foods for Preventing Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Prevention: Effective Foods for Preventing Breast Cancer Cancer stem cells may explain cancer spread and cancer occurrence. Which may be why cancer tends to come back. And there may be no cure, only remission. We need to strike at the root of breast cancer with prevention and treatments not just aimed at the tumor bulk but rather at the beating heart of the tumor – the cancer stem cell. So how do that to prevent breast cancer? One food that contains sulforaphane appears to inhibit breast cancer stem cells. This compound may destroy cancerous cells and keep them from going rogue. Another study shows how phytochemicals in a certain food work great for breast cancer prevention and inhibit aromatase activity.

It is the first time it has happened in Europe. Thousands of women who are 35 or over with a family history of the disease will be offered drugs available on the country's National Health Service. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence believes the move could reduce the chances of catching the disease by 40 percent. The women will be offered a daily five-year course of Tamoxifen or Raloxifene. Experts say women will have to weigh up their options carefully. Tamoxifen has known side-effects. Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie revealed recently she had undergone a double mastectomy. She carries a known risky gene which can increase the chance of catching the disease.

Home Remedies for Gynecomastia (Enlarged Breasts in Men)
 
05:22
Certain medical conditions can be embarrassing to have and therefore may leave the person afraid to seek treatment for fear of judgement and/or ridicule. One such condition that affects men is called Gynecomastia, which is the enlargement of the breast glands. This usually occurs when an irregularity of hormones are present during puberty. This condition can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and painful. It is important to seek immediate medical attention if there is pain, swelling, or discharge from the nipples. Today’s video will explore some home remedies that can help treat this condition. 1. Fish Oil Fish oil not only reduces the amount of estrogen in the body, but it also encourages the body to create testosterone. Since hormone levels are a main contributor to gynecomastia, fish oil can be a beneficial treatment. Simply take a fish oil supplement, as well as an Omega-3 supplement. Of course, as with any supplement, be sure to consult with your doctor prior to beginning a new supplement or treatment. Also, you can obtain fish oil naturally by consuming cold water fish, such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel. 2. Cold Compress With gynecomastia, the breast tissues can become painful and tender. A cold compress can help to contract the breast tissue and therefore reduce pain and swelling. You can make a cold compress at home by using a few ice cube and wrapping them in a light towel. It is important that you do not place the ice cubes directly onto your skin, since that can result in burns and damage to your skin and tissues. 3. Turmeric Turmeric can increase testosterone levels in men and therefore decrease the engorgement of the breast tissue. Just add one to two teaspoons of turmeric into a cup of water and then heat for ten minutes. Consume this tea two to three times per day. 4. Zinc Zinc can naturally increase the amount of testosterone in the body. Therefore, consuming foods that are high in zinc, such as oysters, yogurt, chickpeas and fortified breakfast cereal, are imperative in the treatment of gynecomastia. You can also add zinc supplements, if recommended by your doctor. 5. Passion Flower Passion flower also increases the production of testosterone in the body, which counteracts this condition. Use one teaspoon of dried passion flower and steep in one cup of hot water for ten minutes. Consume this tea a few times per day. 6. Milk Thistle Milk thistle can improve liver functioning. So, if your condition is caused by liver disease, milk thistle can help. Take one teaspoon of crushed milk thistle seeds and add to 3 cups of water. Remove from heat and allow to steep for 20 minutes. 7. Exercise Exercise can help to balance hormones in the body, get rid of excess fat and firm up chest and torso muscles. Any exercise that helps to decrease the fat content inside the body will help, including running, walking, swimming, etc. 8. Flaxseed Flaxseeds help to remove harmful toxins in the body, as well as assist with the production of testosterone. Take one glass of hot water and mix one teaspoon of flaxseeds and consume this each day. You can also consume 1 to 2 teaspoons of flaxseed oil or add ground flaxseeds to smoothies or baked items. 9. Epsom Salt Taking an epsom salt bath is both relaxing and can help to reduce the appearance of gynecomastia. Just add two cups of epsom salt to a bathtub full of warm water. Be sure to stir the epsom salt until it dissolves. It is important to note that this not recommended for people with high blood pressure or heart problems. 10. Dandelion Dried dandelion can also help this condition. Since it is a diuretic, it can remove excess water and bloat from the body. Make tea with one teaspoon of dried dandelion and one cup hot water. Allow to steep for ten minutes. It is also important that you do not take performance enhancing supplements, as they may exacerbate the condition. The same goes for alcohol and tobacco products. Avoid tea tree oil and lavender oils, as they can cause the body to mimic the production of estrogen.

Why is Kyani NitroFX so Powerful?   Dr. Craig Bubler
 
03:00
http://bedrock.kyaniviral.com Published on Aug 10, 2013 Dr Barrie Tan Ph.D. Little-known anti-cancer research with promising possibilities In terms of cancer prevention and treatment, tocotrienols seem to be able to neutralize something called vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). This is important when you're battling cancer, since VEGF prompts the development of new blood vessels built to feed growing tumors. This process whereby cancer forms its own network of blood vessels is called angiogenesis. If tocotrienols indeed slow down or stop BOTH angiogenesis and apoptosis, it's a very big deal. At the very least, we've seen this promising research come out about the specific benefits of tocotrienols: •Pancreatic cancer: Tocotrienols appear to be the more effective antioxidant over tocopherols thanks to their unsaturated side chain. That chain allows the compound to penetrate better into saturated, fatty layers of the liver and brain, which gives it an advantage in terms of halting the formation of tumors, DNA damage, and cell damage. A 1993 study on rats with liver cancer proved this.2 Less liver cell damage was detected in the group that received palm tocotrienols. •Breast cancer: In vitro studies conducted in the 1990s showed tocotrienols helped inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells. Tocotrienols appeared to work synergistically with tamoxifen, (a common breast cancer medicine) to kill cancer cells.3 Delta-tocotrienols appeared be the most effective in inducing apoptosis in cancer cells, and gamma-tocotrienols supposedly inhibit ld1, a key cancer-promoting protein. •Prostate cancer: Different studies show delta- and gamma-tocotrienols suppress prostate cancer cell proliferation. In contrast, another study showed that alpha-tocopherol enhanced cancer cell growth.4 •Skin cancer: In a study at the University of Hong Kong, skin cancer cell numbers decreased when treated with gamma-tocotrienol and chemotherapy drugs.5 Other studies have shown tocotrienols suppress the growth of melanoma.6 These studies seem promising because they're focused specifically on tocotrienols. But as a whole the research is confusing. For example, some studies show lower prostate and breast cancer rates are associated with a higher intake of vitamin E. Yet, postmenopausal breast cancer incidence appears unaffected by vitamin E intake. Part of the problem is that the scientific community only recently started to pay attention to tocotrienols. Most research up until a few years ago focused on alpha-tocopherol. Studies on tocotrienols made up less than 1% of total research on vitamin E. That's starting to change. Now researchers have ramped up their efforts to understand tocotrienols. In the past few years, almost 30% of the peer-reviewed studies on vitamin E have been specific to tocotrienols. Based on those few studies, tocotrienols so far have been shown to be safe. They appear to have no adverse effects when taken for a period as long as four years (the length of the longest study to date). How to get hold of this natural, cancer-altering treatment If you're looking for the most powerful anti-cancer properties from vitamin E, go for the tocotrienols.

Learn How To Prevent Cancer Naturally - 9 Incredible Tips You Can Use Now
 
15:44
Learn 9 ways you can prevent cancer naturally without using toxic treatments. If you have cancer or want to avoid it in the first place, then this video is for you. Get a free cheat sheet of this presentation with actions steps you can take now. https://goo.gl/eB9uWP 1.Stress is one of the major causes of diseases. Our emotional problems can be behind 90% of our illnesses. Every cancer disease originates with a painful, acute, dramatic and isolating shock. Cancer patients have emotional wounds from the isolation in childhood. When we feel anger and resentment, we distort the energy field of the body and manifest disease. 2.Animal products are detrimental to our health. Meat contains too much protein, fat, and cholesterol for our bodies. Other dangers from animal flesh are HCA:s which develop when you cook meat. Meat contains IGF-1 which is a growth hormone that increases your risk of cancer. If you eat animal products, oils, and processed food, your body will start to fail. 3. Vitamin d is essential for our immune system and our health. Low vitamin D levels can cause cancer. The sun is the best source of Vitamin D. UVB-rays create vitamin D in your body. They usually enter the atmosphere between 10 am and 4 pm. The further away you live from the equator the harder it will be to get enough vitamin D. If you live too far away from the equator, you can't get vitamin d the whole year. 4. If you skip sleep, then the liver can’t receive enough blood to function. That prohibits it from cleansing the blood. Melatonin is a substance found in animals, plants, and bacteria. In humans and animals, melatonin secrets during darkness. Physiological functions such as sleep and blood pressure regulation depend on it. Low levels of melatonin in the blood increase the risk of cancer. Most adults need around 8 hours of sleep to function well. Deep sleep happens between 10 pm and midnight. This dreamless state is three times deeper than the sleep you get after midnight. Your organs do not get sufficient energy to function well if you suffer from sleep deprivation. 5. Water is essential in maintaining several bodily functions. Dehydration can lead to weakness, dizziness, headaches, poor digestion and other problems. Drinking enough water is vital to keeping your body healthy. Water is part of many bodily fluids. Water is crucial in digesting food and maintaining a regular bowel movement. Fluoride and chlorine are toxic to the body and can raise the cancer risk. Buy water filter to protect against these toxins. 6. Regular exercise is necessary for physical fitness and good health. It reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. Physical activity improves your body’s ability to use oxygen and also helps blood flow. Exercise until you reach 50% of your capacity. If you exercise too much, you can weaken your immune system. 7. Heavy metals like lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic are toxic to our bodies. We get exposure to heavy metals from our industrial waste. Heavy metals can also find its way in the body by: Fish Tobacco smoke Batteries Vaccines Bad workplace air Food containing cadmium Coal plant Cosmetics Amalgam tooth fillings are the biggest risk factor for heavy metal exposure. They contain mercury which is the most toxic natural element on earth. 8. The liver serves hundreds of different functions that are crucial for the body. One of the most critical functions of the liver is to create bile for digestion. Gallstones are a major threat to the functioning of the liver. They obstruct the liver and gallbladder and may lead to cancer. The liver and gallbladder cleanse is the best way to detoxify your liver. Colonic irrigation is another cleanse you can do. Keeping your colon clean is vital for your digestion. 9. Chemo, radiation and mammograms can cause more cancer. Chemotherapy is toxic and carcinogenic. It destroys red blood cells, the immune system, and vital organs. The World Health Organization declared Tamoxifen as a carcinogen. Radiation therapy destroys cancer cells but also harms healthy cells.Cancer radiation may cause solid tumors of the lung, stomach, bone, and leukemia. Mammograms send a strong dose of ionizing radiation through your tissues, which can contribute to more cancer.

Dr. Eleftherios Mamounas on Predicting the Risk of DCIS Recurrence
 
01:00
Eleftherios P. Mamounas, MD, medical director, Aultman Hospital Cancer Center, Breast Committee Chairman, National Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project, discusses the 12-gene assay used to predict the risk of recurrence in women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The DCIS Score test was validated in the ECOG 5194 study that enrolled 327 patients with all grades of DCIS. Patients on the trial had been treated with breast conserving surgery, had wide negative margins, and did not receive radiation treatment. The prognostic abilities of the DCIS Score were proven by the study, which showed it was a strong predictor of local recurrence risk. Mamounas explains that the test was able to predict recurrence above and beyond traditional factors, such as grade, age, and tamoxifen administration. The traditional factors maintain a prognostic ability and the DCIS Score should be incorporated alongside the traditional factors.
