Allyn Rose - an American beauty pageant titleholder, who won the Miss District Columbia in 2012. She is one of the contestants in the popular Miss America pageant which is going to be held in 2013.

She is in the news recently for opting for the life over beauty. She has decided to undergo double mastectomy and then breast re-construction. There is a reason behind this great decision. The reason behind is the hereditary factors that are related to causing the breast cancer, lump in the breasts and she thinks that the women in her family have inherited the genetic mutation of breast cancer. When she was just 16 years old, her mother died of breast cancer.

She says that her mother died of breast cancer when Allyn was just 16 years old and her mother was 27 years old and in fact all women in her family are suffered from breast cancer. She has decided to go through the double mastectomy and then breast reconstruction after she wins the pageant of Miss America. 

Allyn wants to save her life and also the coming generations in her family in a way to reduce the factors of breast cancer risk which are passed on from one generation to other through the genetic mutations. As yet she has not been diagnosed of breast cancer, she wants to get her life saved .

A very good article / post in one of the blogs that I found, which was very inspiring. Have a look at that. Now what is BRCA positive? .

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Many of the patients are unaware about the main cause of any type of cancer, breast cancer , for example. The breast cancer is one type of cancer that causes to almost one in eight women across the world. This is the known fact. 

How many of us who have relatives in our family have experienced the breast cancer or any type of cancer? The main cause is unknown to any of the doctors and the patients. But still the patients suffer from the side effects of treatment of breast cancer like chemotherapy and radiation. When something unusual is found in the breasts, we directly go to the doctor. In a way it is right. But somewhere there is a need to know the fact about the main cause of breast cancer. Mainly, there is a feeling that there must have been poor diet or heavy fat intake which causes cancer. But there are many other factors that decide the cancer in the body. Mainly the toxins in the body.

Now, what are these toxins? What is their role? What chemicals are toxic in nature? How cancer causes due to toxins in body. 

We unknowingly get exposed to thousands of chemicals everyday through the household cleaning products, mobile phones, cell phones, cosmetics, etc that contain lots of toxic materials which are harmful to the body and that trigger the higher chances of getting cancer, diabetes etc. 

Dr. Deepak Chopra says, "using products with petrochemicals causes inflammation in the body. This type of inflammation is what causes many types of cancer."

What chemicals are toxic ?

The list of the toxic and hazardous household chemicals are : 

  1. Air Fresheners
  2. Ammonia
  3. Dishwasher detergents
  4. Furniture polish
  5. Drain clener
  6. Oven cleaner
  7. Toilet bowl cleaner
  8. Laundry room products
  9. Silica powder found in abrasive cleaning powders mainly causes cancer.
How to identify that the products are hazardous?

Whenever you buy a product, carefully read the label that contains the instructions about the use, storage and disposal. The words, "caution", "danger" and "warning" are the three words that describe the hazardous of the product.  Caution and Warning means  "least toxic" and Danger means "More toxic".

 Which chemicals are linked to breast cancer? 

The most acutely dangerous cleaning products are corrosive drain cleaners, oven cleaners, and acidic toilet bowl cleaners, according to Philip Dickey of the Washington Toxics Coalition. 

How to avoid them? 

  1. Avoid plastic bottled water. Instead use water filters that removes most of the impurities. 
  2. Wash the dishes with the gloves in hand . It can cause damage to the skin even. 
  3. Read carefully while buying these products by looking at the label at the backside of any product or cleaner. It may be stated as caution or danger or poison. Depending upon the more toxic, least toxic, and moderately toxic features, the product has to be bought.

Jenny Jones, an Australian woman, who was diagnosed breast cancer, consumed breast-milk daily 400ml dose from an anonymous donor. She believes that it is a life-saver and should be consumed by all cancer patients. She was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, i.e bone marrow cancer. 

Breast milk is believed to help build immunity in new born babies. It is such a nutritional source that cannot be replaced by any other food.

Jenny Jones, 62 year old stated that , her cancer levels were "dramatic" when she was diagnosed, but after daily intake of breast milk, she states that now the cancer levels have reduced significantly.

Breast milk contains a substance , HAMLET, (Human Alpha-lactalbumin Made LEthal to Tumour cells), can kill cancer cells. This was proved and researched by Lund University and University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

HAMLET consists a protein and fatty acid that are found in the breast milk. Till now it has not been found that HAMLET is formed in the breast milk . Experiments suggests that HAMLET kills 40 types of cancers.

Tips to reduce breast cancer.

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Soy beans are said to be useful in breast cancer prevention , latest news suggests. According to the published online in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, say that women whose daily diet includes even small amount of soy, are actually preventing the breast cancer recurrence. Even if 10mg of soy isoflavones is consumed then they are reducing the recurrence of breast cancer in their lifetime to 25%. That means they are lowering the risk of recurrence of breast cancer.

 The higher the soy isoflavone intake, the stronger the protective effect. Women who consumed the most – versus least – isoflavones each day were 36% less likely to have their breast cancer recur over the course of the study.

Soy may protect from breast cancer in a few ways. Isoflavones, being weak estrogens, can bind to estrogen receptors on breast cells, preventing normal estrogens from doing so. In this way, isoflavones may minimize the effect of estrogen on breast-cancer risk.

The new study included an analysis of 9,514 breast cancer survivors in the U.S. and China. Earlier it was predicted that the daily intake of soybeans was harmful if  a woman is Estrogen receptor positive. But the recent study states that , despite of location or country, the soybeans showed good results and reduced the reoccurence of breast cancer.


 Estrogen is a hormone that is found in women which fuels the breast cancer. There may be some confusion in the minds of people, whether the intake of soy is good or bad for the breast cancer ? Now this can be stated in such a manner that many women who have taken soy have reduced the risk of breast cancer upto 25%. Findings say that in the lab, phytoestrogens can stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. But in human studies, scientists have not found that diets high in soy increase breast cancer risk. In fact, most have found the reverse.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition states after multi year research that women who ate the most soy had lower rates of cancer recurrence and mortality.

Despite concerns about its phytoestrogen content, eating soy has not been shown to promote breast cancer.

Women are scared about the upcoming breast cancer. They always are in some search for articles and news about breast cancer. They have some questions in their mind going on like, "what are the major risks of getting breast cancer?, "will I loose my physique and look of beautiful breasts?, "will I be liked and loved by my near and dear ones when they come to know about breast cancer?", etc.

The breast cancer is a type of disease that occurs one in every 8 women worldwide. They either have to undergo mastectomy or lumpectomy depending upon the size of the breast tumor and depending upon the malignancy of the tumor.

There is a latest news that states that one in five women who undergo breast - conserving surgery for cancer instead of mastectomy , require to undergo a second surgery within 3 months. The survival rates for breast-conserving surgery combined with radiation and for mastectomy are about the same, but the need for a second operation can introduce extra anxiety for the patient, as well as additional cost. The need for a re operation was most common for women with ductal carcinoma in situ, a form of cancer whose edges are very difficult to define for removal of the tumor.

Rates in the United States might actually be higher. A study of four large U.S. hospitals reported in February in the Journal of the American Medical Assn. reported that 23% of the patients receiving breast-conserving surgery underwent a re operation.

We all know we need to perform self-breast exams regularly -- but when and how often? Do this self exam most often as to avoid breast cancer from attacking you.

Women under 40 who use estrogen to ease menopause symptoms after having their ovaries removed do not have an increased risk of breast cancer, according to a new study. 

"Their findings do provide reassurance for the safety of taking estrogen if a woman has had her ovaries out," said Dr. Rowan Chlebowski, a medical oncologist at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, who was not involved in the research. For women over 45, however, the hormone therapy is linked with a 20- to 26-percent jump in breast cancer risk.

"When you're in your mid-40s, you want to be more careful about the use of estrogen therapy," said Dr. Kala Visvanathan, one of the researchers on the study.

Ovary removal, also called oophorectomy, is thought to decrease the risk of breast and ovarian cancer for some women. In certain cases, women at a high risk of cancer will get the surgery for prevention, while others will have it for reasons unrelated to cancer.

In younger women who have not experienced menopause, having the ovaries removed sends them into an abrupt menopause and can result in severe symptoms, such as hot flashes. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) remains the most effective treatment for menopause symptoms.

But millions of women stopped using it after a large U.S. government study in 2002 found women taking estrogen and progestin, another hormone, had increased risks of heart attack, stroke and breast cancer.
Another part of the study that ended in 2004 found that women who had their uterus removed and who were taking estrogen alone also had an increased risk of stroke. There's been considerable discussion since then to calculate the risks and benefits of using hormone therapy to treat menopausal symptoms.

Visvanathan and her colleagues wanted to see whether estrogen therapy to relieve these symptoms would negate the benefits of having the ovaries removed. The idea is that removing the ovaries, and the estrogen produced by them, is responsible for the reduction in breast cancer risk.
"So the question is, if you elect to use estrogen therapy, will you have an increased breast cancer risk?" said Hazel Nichols, a researcher at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, who also worked on the study.

The researchers collected survey information from more than 22,000 women. Nearly half had been diagnosed with breast cancer, while the rest of the women hadn't.

Overall, current estrogen users who had had both ovaries and their uterus removed had a 14-percent increase in breast cancer risk compared with women who experienced natural menopause and never used hormones.

Women who had the surgery done before age 40, however, had a smaller chance of getting breast cancer, whether or not they took estrogen, the researchers report in the medical journal Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The risk was 24 percent lower among those on the hormone, for example, than among women who had never had the surgery and hadn't used estrogen.

Chlebowski stated that the results apply only to women who had their ovaries and uterus removed; women who keep their uterus would take estrogen and progesterone, which might give different results.
About one in eight American women develop breast cancer at some point in her life, although the majority survive, according to the American Cancer Society.

A 24 percent reduction in that number would mean 94 out of every 100,000 women would get the cancer. Women who had the surgery before 40 but who never used hormone therapy had an even greater drop in the risk of breast cancer - 30 percent.

"Part of the benefit of (the surgery) is probably being lost when a woman is using estrogen," said Dr. Graham Colditz, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, who did not participate in the new research.
The gains from the surgery are only slightly diminished by hormone therapy, but Colditz said there is still a need for caution when using estrogen to treat menopause symptoms. The researchers found that the risk of breast cancer increased the older the women were at the time of surgery.
Nichols and her colleagues found that for women who had their ovaries and uterus removed after 50, taking estrogen was tied to a 26 percent increase in breast cancer risk. Nichols said there's a need for more research to help doctors best determine the risks and benefits of hormone therapy for each woman.
"I think what we've learned is that hormones shouldn't be prescribed to prevent chronic disease among healthy women, but there may be a role for them in treating severe symptoms (of menopause), and what we need to do now is to best understand what the safest way to do that is," she told Reuters Health.

A blood test called the CellSearch test to predict breast cancer

Surely if there was a blood test to determine whether or not a woman had breast cancer many women could add years to their lives and in some cases their lives may be saved. But women who want to know if they have cancer shouldn’t fret any longer, because help is on the way and now there’s a blood test called the CellSearch test to predict breast cancer.

“It is currently available for metastatic breast cancer, but not for non-metastatic except in a research study setting,” said Dr. Anthony Lucci, professor of surgical oncology at the University of Texas. The findings entitled “Circulating tumor cells in non-metastatic breast cancer: a prospective study” was published in June’s issue of Lancet Oncology.

Their previous research explored circulating tumor cells in the blood of patients who had metastatic breast cancer or breast cancer that has spread. The cells are shed by tumors and are thought to cause cancer if they latch on to another area of the body. Further analysis revealed the presence of the cells predicted disease progression and the patient’s overall survival rate. “It is a good thing to be able to predict disease progression but we need to know which drugs can kill these cells and improve outcome before we start treating every patient who has circulating tumor cells, Lucci said. “Other factors like lymph node status and tumor size also predict outcome, but there’s no other blood tests that do.

15% of patients who tested positive for the cells had relapsing breast cancer, while 10% died during the four-year-study period.

Another study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found fetal exposure to BPA, a plastic additive found in some food pack-aging was dangerous. Monkeys exposed as fetuses to BPA – bis phenol A – appeared to have an increased risk of breast cancer. Primates are more similar to humans reinforces the notion that BPA could contribute to breast cancer in women.

In an article , by Catherine Nodurft, stated in "Blood Test ‘Could Detect Breast Cancer Years in Advance,  clearly states that the blood test could help the doctors to identify the occurrence of breast cancer much earlier, so that it can be prevented before.

According to a new study presented at the 2012 American Society of Breast Surgeons, Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI), also known as BSGI, is equivalent to MRI in detecting breast cancer. Although both MBI/BSGI and MRI are capable of detecting cancers missed by mammography and ultrasound, the MBI/BSGI procedure can be conducted for about 1/3 the cost of an MRI examination.

In this study of 276 patients at George Washington University Hospital, the MBI/BSGI procedure was conducted with the Dilon 6800® Gamma Camera. The number of patients who underwent a MBI/BSGI procedure was twice those of MRI and the authors concluded that there was no statistically significant difference between the sensitivity or specificity of the two modalities.

According to one of the authors, Dr. Christine Teal from the Department of Surgery at George Washington University Hospital, "MBI/BSGI continuously proves to be a very important diagnostic tool in our facility by providing outstanding results in detecting additional cancers. MBI clearly indicated a change in patient management for a greater number of patients than did MRI".

MRI cannot be performed on patients with metal or electronic implants, or those with claustrophobia. In addition, MRI utilizes a contrast agent that has been reported to cause adverse reactions in a very small number of patients, especially those with insufficient kidney function. Such patients have no difficulty having a MBI/BSGI exam.
