Breast Cancer Prevention Begins in Childhood?

Posted by on Sat, Oct 25, 2014

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

We often direct the awareness message to women, recommending steps they can take to detect breast cancer early or to reduce their risk of cancer.  

But breast cancer prevention actually begins in childhood.  Several recent studies show the relationship of childhood diet to breast cancer risk.

Childhood Diet and Cancer Risk

It’s long been known that early puberty is a risk factor for breast cancer, likely because of the increased length of time the body is exposed to higher levels of estrogen.  Interestingly enough, onset of puberty is significantly impacted by certain dietary factors. 

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2012 showed that increased meat and dairy intake is associated with an earlier age of puberty onset.  On the other hand, a diet higher in vegetable protein intake was correlated to a later onset of puberty.  This study specifically looked at the diet when the children were only 3 to 6 years old.

Oral Cancer is Not Just a Problem for Smokers

Posted by on Mon, Apr 07, 2014

More than 43,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. 

According to the National Cancer Institute, oral cancer is more common than leukemia, skin melanoma, and cancers of the brain, liver, bone, thyroid, ovaries, and cervix.  It is a major cause of disfigurement and death in the United States. April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, so now is a good time to learn the signs or oral cancer and get screened as part of your holistic dental check up.

Oral cancer includes cancers found in the mouth, on the tongue, lips, throat, parts of the nose, and larynx.  Seventy five percent of these cancers are caused by tobacco and alcohol.  Infection with the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV) has been linked to a subset of oral cancers.

Current Statistics on Oral Cancer:

Can We Eat Certain Foods to Prevent Cancer? The Science is Here

Posted by on Wed, Nov 13, 2013

You see, once a disease is here and in the advanced stages, the 'cure' becomes a much bigger challenge.  So, what IF we could go back and stop this abnormal angiogenesis, before it gets out of control.  

First, what is angiogenesis?  

Angiogenesis:  is the physiological process through which new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels. Angiogenesis is a normal and vital process in growth and development, as well as in wound healing and in the formation of granulation tissue. However, it is also a fundamental step in the transition of tumors from a benign state to a malignant  one, leading to the use of angiogenesis inhibitors in the treatment of cancer. The essential role of angiogenesis in tumor growth was first proposed in 1971 by Judah Folkman, who described tumors as "hot and bloody."  ~wikipedia

Basically:  Too many blood vessels can spur tumor formation and growth.  

Here are the million dollar questions:  

1.  Could the answer to cancer be preventing angiogenesis?

2.  Can we beat cancer at its own game, so it can never become dangerous?

3.  Can this be a way for people who have already conquered cancer to keep it from coming back?

So, let's see what we can add to the diet to naturally contribute to the halting of those blood vessels. Can we EAT to starve cancer?  The answer may be YES & now science shows us HOW!

What Your Dentist May See: Symptoms of Mouth or Throat Cancer

Posted by on Mon, Apr 29, 2013

What do you know about oral cancer?

One person dies every hour from oral cancer in the United States and the mortality rate has remained unchanged for more than 40 years.  The death rate associated  with oral cancer is high not because it is hard to discover or diagnose, but because the cancer is discovered late in its development.   Often oral cancer is only discovered when the cancer has spread, most likely to the lymph nodes in the neck.           

The oral cavity includes your lips, gums, tongue, area of your mouth under your tongue, the roof of your mouth and the lining of your cheeks.  The throat begins at at the soft part of the roof of your mouth and continues back into your throat.  It includes the back section of your tongue as well as the base where the tongue attaches to the floor of your mouth.

Symptoms of mouth or throat cancer can include:
