Are we causing our own breast cancer?

Up to one-third of breast cancer cases in Western countries could be avoided if women ate less and exercised more, according to experts at the European breast cancer conference in Barcelona.

It’s a sensitive topic because it feels like scientists are basically saying women are causing their own breast cancer. Like sun exposure to melanoma and smoking to lung cancer, researchers are saying heavier women have a greater chance of getting breast cancer. (Up to 60 percent greater chance in fact!)

From The Associated Press’s story:

“…Michelle Holmes, a cancer expert at Harvard University, said people might wrongly think their chances of getting cancer are more dependent on their genes than their lifestyle.”

“The genes have been there for thousands of years, but if cancer rates are changing in a lifetime, that doesn’t have much to do with genes,” she told The Associated Press in a phone interview from Cambridge, Massachusetts.”

“Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. In Europe, there were about 421,000 new cases and nearly 90,000 deaths in 2008, the latest available figures. The United States last year saw more than 190,000 new cases and 40,000 deaths.”

“A woman’s lifetime chance of getting breast cancer is about one in eight. Obese women are up to 60 percent more likely to develop any cancer than normal-weight women, according to a 2006 study by British researchers.”

“Many breast cancers are fueled by estrogen, a hormone produced in fat tissue. So experts suspect that the fatter a woman is, the more estrogen she’s likely to produce, which could in turn spark breast cancer. Even in slim women, exercise can help reduce the cancer risk by converting more of the body’s fat into muscle.”

“…Tara Beaumont, a clinical nurse specialist at Breast Cancer Care, a British charity, said her agency has always been very careful about issuing similar lifestyle advice. She noted that three of the major risk factors for breast cancer — gender, age and family history — are clearly beyond anyone’s control.”

” ‘It is incredibly difficult to isolate specific factors, therefore women should in no way feel that they are responsible for developing breast cancer,’ she told the AP on Thursday.”

“Yet Karen Benn, a spokeswoman for Europa Donna, a patient-focused breast cancer group, said it was impossible to ignore the increasingly stronger links between lifestyle and breast cancer.”

“If we know there are healthier choices, we can’t not recommend them just because people might misinterpret the advice and feel guilty,” she said. “If we are going to prevent breast cancer, then this message needs to get out, particularly to younger women.”

OK so if we accept the premise that women need to eat better and lose weight to prevent cancer, here’s the kicker from another news story earlier in the week.

The story states that women, especially older women, must do moderate exercise for at least an hour a day before they will begin to lose any weight!

Their example in the story was a 60-year-old woman but even I see a difference in my metabolism from my first baby to my third baby. I’m having a much harder time taking off the weight with my third than with my first or second.

So they’re telling us we have to eat better and lose weight but our metabolisms aren’t exactly cooperating in this battle.

So what do you think: Is it fair to compare weight to smoking as far as causing cancer? Is it fair to say that women are in some cases causing their own breast cancer? Will this story make you change your ways to help prevent breast cancer? What to do you think of the corollary story that women need an HOUR a day of moderate exercise to begin to move weight without substantial cutbacks in foods?

It is a fact that more men die of Prostate Cancer than do women with Breast Cancer. So, statistically, given that there are more females than males in the population, there is a greater need to address PC. BUT, here we’re talking about males and, and, and, well…who gives a damn?

@Jason -more women die of heart disease than men do, but until the last few years, all of the focus has been on men and heart disease, so I guess someone gives a damn about you after all.

There are a number of walks and 5Ks -as well as other events for different types of cancer and disease. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training hooks up with marathons, half-marathons and triathlons across the nation to raise money for those cancers. I’m doing a 5K for the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation at Atlantic Station in July. If there’s not a prostate cancer or lung cancer run out there, maybe you should start one if you’re interested. I’m betting the American Lung Association does do something though.The American Cancer Society does -and it is for all cancers.

I’m a woman. I find time to work out and do heavy exercise. I try to eat right though I also believe everything in moderation (keeps me from beating myself up). How is it remotely unfair to note that scientifically, obesity and poor diet contribute to cancer? It’s something that you CAN control, therefore yes, you’re doing yourself in. You can choose to eat a Big Mac or make a great veggie meal at home. Your call. No one forces you to eat poorly or sit around all day.

Sure, women are going to find it much harder to lose weight than men. That’s nature at work. There’s also losing weight to be healthy and losing it to fit in a size 0. The former is great, the latter is clearly not. Yet anyone can find half an hour a day to go out and walk, play outside with the kids, walk the dog on a long stretch of road, or join a gym. There’s hundreds of options out there. Besides, exercise isn’t just to help prevent cancer; it’s good for any number of diseases that can plague the body (heart comes to mind). If you CHOOSE to not do it, then yeah, you’re agreeing to possibly do yourself in quicker than someone who works out and eats well.

Also, the diet connection to cancer has been around for at least 20 years. The healthier you eat, the better off your body is. This means plenty of fruits and veggies, less of the fats and processed sugars. The American Cancer Society has plenty of information on diet and cancer preventative measures.

Not trying to be judgemental, but women tend to step up and say “I had cancer, but it didn’t defeat me nor does it define me.” Men try to keep all their “happenings” quiet. I have absolutely no problem letting people know that I serve a Mighty God who healed my body from ovarian cancer.

I am blessed to coach a Breast Cancer survivors team on a Dragon Boat. Most of these ladies were in fairly decent shape before and certaintly are in good condition now.
The need to be active is critical for everyone. If there are so many people thinking like this then do something about it and let those who need to know! Push them to walk at lunch, get them to the gym, offer your personal assistance if you care.

As far as Prostate cancer I also know several guys who have fought this. Of them, one is obese though the others have always been fit.

Bottom line is we do need to be more active as a population; now that’s health care reform we can all take part in!

It blows my mind that medical oponion and advice can be swayed by feelings. It doesn’t take a doctor to realize that eating better and excerising will help your body in many ways, however sometimes it does take a doctor teling you for it to actually sink in. Feelings should not influence medical advice. More doctors should look people in the eye and say you need to make some changes or there will be serious consequences down the road.

Men get breast cancer too, so the whole article should be geared toward “people with breast cancer.” It’s not just a woman thing. RE the hour of exercise another article was saying is necessary for women, esp. after a certain age, need to lose weight, let alone maintain it, it’s the logistics that are the problem, with women working outside the home more while continuing to do the majority of the “home work,” and more women (see ajc article earlier this week) taking on two or three jobs to make ends meet.

Tiger Ochocinco Mellencamp

March 26th, 2010

@pj….I’m finding it hard to buy into your “logistics for women” assumption fully. I’ll concede that if women do a disproportionate amount of the home work that the time they have to exercise decreases. But at the end of the day, isn’t it still a matter of choice?

I know for myself that if something had to be done and my wife hadn’t had her workout in for the day and we were both at home, she would basically tell me she was going to workout and would appreciate if I took care of the thing that needed to be done. She’s a die hard and when it comes to two tough decisions (whether or not to work out or to ask me to do something I may not want to do), the work out wins.

Additionally, I can’t count the number of times where we were both busy, couldn’t get the workout in during conventional times, dragging our hinds, and it’s 10:30 at night, and she gets on the bike and does 30 minutes. It’s an easier decision to go to bed, it’s easier to watch tv….she makes the hard decision and, quite frankly, inspires me to emulate her.

I’m sure your logistics argument is valid to a degree and is an example of why the decision to make the hard choice is harder, but at the end of the day, it still just an excuse.

@Tiger: However, it is apparent that your wife has some confidence that the job will get done if she hands it off to you. There are a lot of women who don’t have that assurance, and it’s worse if they have out-of-shape husbands, too. I will grant you, though, that people (including women) create their own hell by giving permission to those around them to treat them as doormats.

@DB…agreed..I’m one heck of a husband! ;-) Just kidding.

all I’m trying to illustrate is that we make our choices. Sometimes the choice is a matter of priorities. Usually, the decisions I think MOST of us face (granted, not all, but most) is “it’s close to bedtime” ….or “this is an ungodly hour to wake up”….or “I had a hectic day and that couch and TV look so nice”….and we choose the easy decision.

My dad had a buddy in the SEALs who visited us in while I was in college. I wasn’t working out a ton then, told him I didn’t have time between classes and bartending..he asked me what I was doing between 5:00 and 6:00 AM that morning..told him I was sleeping and he says “so you do have time, you just don’t have the will to get up and do it.” Try telling a SEAL that you’re doing all you can do.

@Tiger: Oh, hell, no, I am not telling a SEAL anything! They are BEASTS! You gotta admire the drive, discipline and pride. So, what was your reponse?

My husband has not missed a daily workout since 1979, 31 years. And I mean NEVER – he has a log! At this point, NOTHING will stop that workout and break that streak! Sometimes, it may have only been a 20 minute walk, but he ALWAYS gets something in. I really admire that about him. He’s one that will get up early on vacation to get a run in before the rest of the family drags out of bed, or takes the dog for a walk at 11:00 at night when he realizes the day has gotten away from him. Even when he had outpatient surgery, he got up early to get his workout in, and the next day, at the end of the day, did 20 slow (but countable!) minutes on a treadmill.

@DB…I didn’t have one. he knew I didn’t have one. I didn’t take it to heart then either, but I never forgot it and after a few decades when I didn’t have my youth to rely on to keep the pounds off, it finally sunk in. There have been many a time where my wife or I have to take an early morning flight that is going to take up the day of travel and damned if the alarm clock isn’t set for 3:30 AM so that we can just get it done and out of the way before we have to go to the airport. I think of my dad’s friend often during the really tough, inconvenient workouts.

So I know I’m biased, but to those like your husband and my wife, there are always times to work out and there are only excuses (no of them real acceptable) as to why you don’t.

Iodine in the Diet

When it comes to breast cancer prevention, the discussion is not complete without mentioning dietary iodine supplementation. Recent breakthroughs in basic science research have raised awareness of the importance of Iodine for breast cancer prevention and treatment. Most of this information is summarized in David Brownstein’s book, Iodine and Why You Need It.

The “race for the cure” is over and we won- overwhelmingly. The mystery of the origin of most breast cancers has been discovered- it was vitamin D deficiency- as suspected- all along.

At least 80% of all breast cancer is a direct result of a vitamin D deficiency. If you haven’t heard that yet you have now- no kidding!

Chazzy D – Great to see Vitamin D mentioned. Big surprise that it has been ignored for all these years. It is cheap, not patentable, readily available year-round from the sun when you can get out in it, and part of a health regime, rather than a profit-making disease treatment program.

Of course cancer comes from within. Our bodies are designed to ward off all disease including cancer (which is not a foreign invader, but just US gone wrong. Exercise is just the beginning of the discussion. Realizing that all the money you walk to raise is just used to perpetuate the disease and not to discover a cure is the beginning of the realization that the death from disease industry is way to powerful to ever do anything to stop the flow of money. Just look at the government bureaucracy surrounding the so called war on poverty. Bureaucrats who handle the cases of the needy get more money for handling more cases. They have no motivation to get people back on their feet any more than people who profit from disease have to discover a cure. Certainly there may be some who might profit from a pill, but none would profit from everyone getting or staying healthy.

I know this sounds like a twisted view of it all and certainly presupposes a disgusting alterior motive to the disease industry, but just look at how hard the FDA works to make sure that information about the positive effects of natural products, supplements, vitamins, and the like is kept from the american people. You can’t even make the claim that something like vitamin D prevents cancer unless you can fund horrifically expensive research trials that meet the FDA criteria. Vitamin D is cheap, and the industry cannot afford these trials. On the other hand, chemotherapy, various pharmaceuticals, worthless vaccines and the like are all VERY expensive so the profit is there to fund the kinds of studies that allow similar claims, even though they may well be found to be untrue years later.

The evidence that health prevents disease is way to strong for me to ever look at western disease oriented medicine the same way.

The recent health bill will now just further force millions of americans into paying for “insurance” that covers none of the costs of health, but pays trillions for disease treatment. While the administration makes claims about caring about health and condemns big business, this bill has handed literally trillions of dollars to an industry that knows nothing about preventing illness, but knows plenty about profitting from sickness and disease.

I’m afraid I am going to have to side with Lead Balloon on this one. Not to throw off on breast cancer research, but it does seem to get more attention than say lung cancer (which btw, claims the lives of non-smoking victims too) or pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately the stats on lung cancer victims are not much better than they were 25 years ago. VERY sad. No one wants to put any money towards lung cancer research. There could be many advances in detection with more money. And yes, I have tried to get more involved in lung cancer organizations. Until we can get rid of the stigma, folks just want to point fingers.

I lost the sweetest father a little girl could have. I was 12 years old when my father lost his battle with lung cancer. His life was just as precious to me as a mother who has lost her battle to breast cancer. Unfortunately for lung cancer patients, there is significantly less money to help save their lives.

Now back to the topic. We are all responsible to some degree to help take care of our bodies. If you smoke, try to stop. If you overeat, try to cut back. If you live a sedentary lifestyle, try to get out a move around a little bit. I whole heartedly think that lifestyle can play a role in ALL forms of cancer. I also think genes can play a role as well.

Of course being overweight is not good for you. This is not news. However, people need to be told exactly what that means. Okay, we think, so being overweight can put you at an increased risk for some cancers. We think, oh, it is a risk, but when you are told that you could be increasing your risk for breast cancer by 60%!!!!!, you will probably take it more seriously.

To answer your questions:
Is it fair to compare weight to smoking as far as causing cancer?????
It is not a matter of being fair, being overweight can be avoided (in most cases), it just takes some work, like exercising and changing your diet. If it is proven that being overweight increases your risk, then yes, it is fair to compare. What if it was proven that having brown hair increased your risk?…just go with me, here, I have a point…Is that fair?…It is not a matter of being fair, it is a fact. The difference is that unlike smoking or weight, no blame can be placed because we don’t choose to have brown hair…You may not think you choose to be overweight, but in most cases, aren’t people overweight because of their diet and lack of exercise? Yes, some are blessed with great genes that give us higher metabolisms, but for the most part, people are just lazy. I am not trying to be mean, it is just true.

Is it fair to say that women are in some cases causing their own breast cancer???
I don’t know that it is fair to place the blame solely on their weight because that cannot be proven. It increases your risk but you have no way of knowing that it is the sole cause of your breast cancer. There are too many other variables to consider. So, no, it is not fair to say you most definitely caused your own breast cancer, but you will always wonder if you could have done more to prevent it.

“If we know there are healthier choices, we can’t not recommend them just because people might misinterpret the advice and feel guilty,” she said. “If we are going to prevent breast cancer, then this message needs to get out, particularly to younger women.” The article states that the more fat you have, the higher your risk. So, unless you are obese, you are not increasing your risk to 60%. Doesn’t knowing you could do something to decrease your risk make you WANT to take action?

What to do you think of the corollary story that women need an HOUR a day of moderate exercise to begin to move weight without substantial cutbacks in foods?
What do I think? I guess I think it sucks for women who need to lose weight, but what can you do? If that is what it takes, then, that is what it takes.

The thing that also is overlooked is breastfeeding. It lowers your risk of breast cancer significantly, and the longer you do the more it lowers your risk. Yet most women are not breastfeeding their children. I think there is a total correlation to all types of health risks, not just breast cancer, when we don’t eat the right foods and don’t exercise enough. Even just 50 years ago, we didn’t have the transportation and packaged foods we have today – surely there is a correlation in the different lifestyles of today and the increase in diseases we didn’t have then…

As others have said, the health risks related to overweight/obesity are often discussed. It does not seem that adding one more risk would be a big deal, yet it is. If being overweight can contribute to the incidence of breast cancer, it makes sense to broadcast that knowledge. I would rather have my feelings hurt (with something I really know to be true-that I’m overweight) than develop a debilitating or fatal illness because I did nothing to prevent it. My husband has been told by our physician to lose weight (he’s gained about 50 lbs since we met 12 years ago). His excuse for not working on it: the doctor is fat, too. How can he be expected to listen to a fat doctor? I am not fat, exercise and eact right, however. I tell him the same thing the doctor did. He is looking for an excuse to eat what he wants and not exercise. I am terrified he will have a heart attack, stroke, or cancer, but you cannot make people do that which they haven’t the desire to do. He won’t change until something drastic happens, and all I can do is hope it doesn’t kill him. A lot of people are that way. Worrying about embarrassing them or making them feel responsible is the last thing the medical establishment should do when giving advice on what is best for a patient.

Nature creates boys who later cheat.

Men who cheat are simply too weak and give into their very natural desires. They are hard wired to desire to spread their seed far and wide. They must fight back this natural desire in order to properly fit into society.

This is not asking too much. Naturally, if we saw someone with something we wanted and they were smaller than us, we would simply take it. However, we are purposely supressing nature in order to form a society. Conscious over subconscious.

Nothing turns a man off more than a woman he has already slept with.

Breast cancer

April 5th, 2010
7:58 am

well there are many causes of the breast cancer..As breast cancer is one of the increasingly widespread forms of cancer worldwide, hence it is crucial that all women become sentient about the caveat symptoms of breast cancer which would be helpful in early diagnosis.

1. Any Palpable lumps or thickening on the breast area or armpits

A woman could sense a number of bodily changes during the course of her monthly menstrual cycle that could be physically palpated. But, in case there is an abnormal lumpy formation or growths which a woman could palpate during any time of the month, then this is cause for concern and a caveat indication of breast cancer.
2. Noticeable or Palpable Changes in Breast

Signs and symptoms of breast cancerIn case any difference is felt in the form, outline of the breast that could be either palpated or apparent, then it could most probably be an indication of breast cancer. No woman should ignore variations in the size, contour of the breast as these could be signs of underlying breast cancer.

3. Any atypical Painful sensation in Breasts or armpits

In case a woman senses pain that is atypical, continual or long-drawn-out painful sensation in the breasts or underarms must be carefully scrutinized as at times pains could be indicative of something not right, even though other breast cancer symptoms are not apparent.

4. Blood loss or emanation from the nipples

In case, one notices any form of emanation from the nipples appearing colourless, fluid-like consistency or blood being discharged from the nipples, then it might be a caution indication of breast cancer. Hence, any form of discharge from the nipples except for breast milk should be deemed serious.
5. Variation in outward appearance of the Breasts

In case the skin over the breasts are appearing coarse and flaking or peeling, in case the breast skin puckers or dimples, or some extent of reddishness or irritation is present or nipple is appearing to be pulled inward, then any of these could be suggestive of preliminary signs of breast cancer that must be evaluated medically as promptly as doable.

6. Variations in Bowel motions

In case a woman feels constipated, having loose bowels or other variations in bowel habits then it might be indicative of foremost symptoms of breast cancer.

7. Other Symptoms

The presence of an unremitting soreness that fails in healing soon or in case a woman senses some problem in ingestion, a sense of fullness felt despite not having eaten a complete meal or not eaten usual meal, niggling coughing or any variations in the outline and size in any mole or wart present in the body are all to be watched out for as any one of these could be the caveat symptoms of breast cancer.
