Chemical Preservative Found in 18 of 20 Breast Cancer Tumor Tissues Sampled

We have known for some time, with the evidence continuing to mount, that many man made chemicals found in our environment are also found in our bodies.  Many of these chemicals are carcinogenic.  The unknowns include how much chemical accumulation will cause cancer and what is the effect of small amounts of hundreds of chemicals accumulating in our body.  It is also very difficult to “prove” direct cause of effect, i.e.; chemical = a specific cancer in a person.  The reference for the study mentioned above appeared in the Journal of Applied Toxicology vol.24, p.5.  It referenced the presence of preservatives used in personal care products, cosmetics and some foods in the tumor tissue itself.  Did this chemical preservative cause the cancer?  That cannot be determined with scientific certainty but there are several points to be made.  What other toxic chemicals may have been present providing additional carcinogenic effects?  Only one chemical was tested for.  From my viewpoint we would all be less likely to develop cancer if we had fewer toxins in our bodies.


The human body as well as the bodies of animals, fish and fowl deposit toxins, as a protective mechanism, in adipose tissue, that is to say fat tissue.  The breast is primarily adipose tissue.  The nursing infant will ingest chemicals from his/her mother during lactation.  These chemicals including pesticides have been shown in animal studies to damage endocrine, reproductive and nervous systems.


Texas Tech University researchers found the rocket fuel perchlorate in samples of breast milk nationwide.  The Environmental Working Group found traces of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 infants they tested.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in a study of 2,500 Americans in 2003 found all of the 116 man-made pollutants being investigated in the blood of these volunteers.


Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical found in many plastic products including baby bottles and other bottles in wide use and in personal care products.  BPA disrupts hormone function.  One in five American four year olds is obese.  Overweight girls had significantly higher levels of phlates (BPA type chemicals) in their body compared to the general population of children.


Metabolic syndrome, low testosterone levels in men, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, neuro-developmental problems, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and many more chronic health problems are tied to the presence of these chemicals in the bodies of victims of these diseases.  We sincerely hope more physicians will start to address these problems in their medical practices and offices.  There are treatment programs to help reduce the levels in body and your lifestyle choices can insure you reduce exposure.  It is an urgent health issue.

Detoxification for Veterans and Construction Workers

When you look for underlying reasons for health problems and symptoms you find toxins in one form or another at the base of the mountain.

Changing your diet, detoxifying with a number of common methods can do wonders for your health and well being.  Some people, however, find they cannot get lasting results with self-care and these are the people who need the help of a program of thorough detoxification.

Toxins are stored in adipose tissue throughout the body.  That’s right, fat tissue.  The body chooses fat tissue because it has a low blood supply, so storing toxins in fat means they may stay out of circulation in the blood stream for some time;  until the time you are exercising or missing a meal and your body burns “that” fat tissue for energy.  The only thing you notice is you feel like you are drugged or spacey or just plain ill; developing a headache for no reason you can put your finger on.  The reason is within you, your body just released from fat storage a bit of toxins into your blood stream and you are feeling it.  Most people answer this problem with more toxins, like an aspirin or antidepressant.  That does not work; it makes you worse over time.

The science is strong and growing in scope.  The Environmental Working Group found evidence of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 infants.  The US Geological Survey measured organic wastewater contaminants (owc's) in 139 streams in 30 of our 50 states.  80% of the streams had measurable “owc’s” including cholesterol drugs, insect repellents, triclosan (an anti-microbial), fire retardants and detergent.  80,000 tons of carcinogens are released into the air annually in North America; there are 2100 chemicals in most municipal water supplies and over 50,000 chemicals in commercial use.  The toxic metal cadmium in the air over 28 cities is connected to higher levels of vascular diseases for residents in those cities.  NYU School of Medicine researchers established a causal link between air pollution and arteriosclerosis in 2005.  The Environmental Health Perspectives Journal cited toxins such as PCB’s, dioxin and pesticides increase arteriosclerosis and fat in artery walls.  We could go on and on.   The body of scientific knowledge of the health problems cause by contaminants grows monthly.

As you age it starts to become apparent that you are harboring more toxins as you can experience a lasting fatigue, or if a user in the past you crave drugs, while developing symptoms that stick around.  Symptoms arising from toxic metals like mercury, arsenic, cadmium and other others, as well as pesticides, herbicides, food additives like msg and aspartame and the toxins from medical and street drugs accumulate and overwhelm your liver and other organs or simply give you symptoms that do not go away.

Taking antioxidants helps in the detoxification pathways and prevents some toxins from harming your body.  Utilizing various detoxification protocols like colonics and digestive detoxification methods helps to some extent but fail to reach the toxins stored in adipose tissue and the myelin sheath around the nerves of the body.   What releases the toxins from deep fat stores throughout the body?  We know of no other effective program to do so other than chelation therapy for heavy metal detoxification and the Hubbard method of sauna detoxification of the hundreds of other chemicals and poisons and mercury in your body stores.

With the daily use of nutrients and niacin, mild exercise and dry heat sauna you can reduce the levels of toxins in your body to the point where you feel a resurgence in well being, energy and mental clarity you desire.  The complete program protocol can be found in the book by Hubbard, Clear Body Clear Mind.  Followed precisely this program is profound in its benefits.

Chelation therapy can be used as a preventive program to clean up the ravages of daily living with a maintenance program of a treatment every month.  Taking high quality nutrients and eating clean, organic foods, avoiding the chemicals in manufactured foods, goes a long way in preventing the build up toxins in your body.  Avoiding sources of contamination is key to healthy aging and keeping ones wits.
