Environmental Risks for Breast Cancer and Other Cancers

14 Mar

There has to be a reason by Monarch butterflies are dying off and other species of animals. There has to be a reason for the change in various species changes.  Are we getting more natural disasters in the 200o’s? Is the environment catching up with us? Has our bad behavior of not caring for the environment causing these problems? I know I have been a re-cycler for 10 years or more.  I am trying to do my best. I don’t use a lot of chemicals, unlike my husband. I never was a person who used a lot of make up, especially when I read about toxins. I developed allergies and became allergy sensitive early on in my life.

In February Lynn Goldman posted a story on the Huffington Post about IBCERCC breast report. The link is the following:

In 2012, 227,000 women in the United States were diagnosed with breast cancer and 40,000 died of the disease. The cases climb. You  do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that we are not winning the war on breast cancer and the money is not being used on the right kind of research.

Two days after this article the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services together with the Breast Cancer Fund and the H. John Heinz111 Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, held a forum to discuss the road map to looking at the environmental risk factors as a cause of breast cancer. There is little and not enough funding in this area. Chemicals are found in nail polish, plastic, consumer products,  household products and the list goes on and on.

I cannot wonder about the environment when I hear of patients who have Inflammatory Breast Cancer or Triple Negative, and they live in the country.

I wonder by there is so much pancreatic cancer know days. I know genes play a role in it but could diet as well?

Thanks for listening to my everyday ramblings about cause and effect, cancer causes, and life changes.
