Iodine deficiency can lead to thyroid issues and eventually breast cancer.
Thermography offers the opportunity for much earlier breast disease detection than is possible through self-examination, doctor examination or mammography alone because the procedure can detect the subtlest of physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease.
A new John Hopkins Medicine research study "proved" that the primary cause of cancer was bad luck. Is it, or are diet, environment or unhealthy habits part of this equation as well?
Women with iodine deficiencies are more likely to develop breast cancer. Eat more of these iodine-rich foods to reduce your risk.
Mammograms do nothing to prevent breast cancer or improve survival rates. But the amazing little flaxseed does.
Adding just 4 tablespoons of olive oil a day to a Mediterranean diet cuts the risk of invasive breast cancer by 68%
When people come to me for holistic health advice, my main objective is to provide evidence-based health information supported by the scientific literature. One of the quintessential pillars of my mission is to share those practices with empirical validation in order to elevate therapeutic nutrition to the same perceived mainstream legitimacy as any other science-based discipline.
More than 100 women in the U.S. die every day from breast cancer. Could something as simple as celery make a difference?
1 in 8 women will get breast cancer. While there is a lot we do not know about breast cancer, there is a lot we DO know about it. With science behind certain actions, we can accomplish our goal of breast cancer prevention.
The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors is an integrative, whole foods guide to rebuilding health after surviving breast cancer and reducing the chance of breast cancer recurrence. This guide helps readers get the nutrition they need in order to keep breast cancer at bay, with specific guidance for managing hormone levels with food. It also explains how nutritional deficiencies, environmental factors, blood sugar, inflammation levels and GI health all affect cancer’s ability to attack
“Mammography screening for breast cancer has significant drawbacks, and expected survival benefits have not materialized." --Dr Laura Esserman.
A groundbreaking new study published in the British Medical Journal reveals regular mammogram screenings do not reduce breast cancer death rates – the only true measure of whether they benefit women who undergo them.
The mind-body connection is undeniable. Can healing your heart and your emotional wounds reduce your risk of breast cancer?
Few, if any, plants have been revered as thoroughly -- by the religious and scientific community alike -- as a healer of the human body, mind and soul, as beautiful turmeric
Are you one of the million of women who currently take a birth control pill? If so, beware of the artificial hormones contained in the birth control pill and the increased risk of developing breast cancer.
Breast cancer is one of the major killers of women in the United States. Sadly, most women have no idea that simply not wearing a bra can have a major impact on the likelihood of developing breast cancer.
A new study that "reassures" that bras do not cause breast cancer actually supports the bra-cancer link, despite its improper controls and bias.
The human body has over 60 trillion cells, and every one of them is vulnerable to the development of multiple diseases. One of the biggest problems facing medicine is how to diagnose these diseases earlier, in order to improve the chances of stopping and reversing them.
The prospect of developing cancer is a frightening one. Sadly, this fear is leading many to undergo dangerous and harmful cancer screenings that, ironically, can cause the very diseases patients hope to avoid.
Does wearing constrictive bras for long periods of time daily contribute to breast cancer?
As master of the public relations game, the medical industry uses the term “prevention” in a way that not only misleads people, but also paves the way to illness.
Conventional cancer treatments aren't working for women with breast cancer. Women are falling into a cancer industry machine only to be spit out at the other end, permanently damaged and still with no reasonable assurance of long-term survival.
A new study lends more support for the idea that a whole food is more powerful than the sum of its parts
Have we gotten it all wrong? When we can move beyond fear into curiosity, we find that illness is the body’s wisdom playing out in its own highly designed and incredibly personal way
