This is the second article on What You Need To Know About Cancer Prevention.
In this article which is Garbage In we’ll be discussing about some of the numerous poisonous substances that have found their way into our bodies.
Shaving and deodorant use
A Chicago survey of 437 women with breast cancer, found a link between frequency of underarm cosmetics use, shaving and age when diagnosed.
It was found that women who perform underarm shaving more aggressively had a diagnosis of breast cancer22 years earlier than the non-users of underarm cosmetics.
If you disrupt the skin by shaving, it can open up the door to the contents of whatever you put on your skin afterwards, because just under the skin is the lymphatic system, which is connected to the breast. It is believed the culprits in these antiperspirants are the toxins in aluminum salts such as aluminum chlorohydrate. They don’t normally penetrate the skin enough to cause a problem”unless the skin is shaven.
Also, British researchers have found traces of chemicals called parabens in tissue taken from women with breast cancer, the highest concentration being in the quadrant nearest the underarm. Parabens mimic the effects of the hormone oestrogen, which is known to stimulate tumours in two thirds of women with breast cancer.
Parabens are used as preservatives, and on the label they may be listed as methyl paraben, ethyl paraben, propyl paraben, butyl paraben, isobutyl paraben or E216. Even “natural” deodorants may not be paraben-free.
“The breast is like the dust bin of the body these days,” states Dr Darbre, a key researcher. “God knows what this cocktail of chemicals does to women.”

Aspartame (NutraSweet/ Equal/ Spoonful/ Equal Measure)
Complaints about aspartame represent 80-85% of all food complaints registered with the FDA.
Strong statistical evidence links aspartame to breast cancer. The American Cancer Society figures show that breast cancer cases have doubled since 1981, the year aspartame was approved for use as a food additive.
Dr. John W. Olney, a neuroscientist at Washington University, St. Louis, highlighted that the rates of the extremely deadly forms of brain cancer (e.g., glioblastoma and anaplastic astrocytoma) in the most susceptible populations, went up significantly not long after aspartame’s approval.
Researchers are calling for further studies of the link between aspartame and cancer.
The synthetic amino acids that compose aspartame ” phenylalanine, aspartic acid, and the methanol in which they are bound, are poisonous. Phenylalanine (50% of aspartame) causes seizures and degrades into DKP, a tumor causing agent. Aspartic acid (40% of aspartame) caused holes in the brains of mice according to Dr. John Olney.
Methanol (wood alcohol, 10% of aspartame) is a cumulative toxin in the body. Since it is “free” methanol”, appearing without ethanol (the antidote for methanol toxicity always present in natural food such as fruit juice), the methanol in aspartame is lethal. Methanol destroys the optic nerve and can cause blindness. Fetal tissue cannot tolerate methanol.
In addition, the methanol in aspartame breaks down into formaldehyde (embalming fluid) and formic acid which has the chemical composition of ant venom. Formic acid is used commercially in products such as paint stripper.
Records released under the Freedom of Information Act apparently showed that aspartame caused dozens of mammary tumors in animals tested from 1971 to 1974 by G.D. Searle, the pharmaceutical company, responsible for aspartame.
Searle has been accused of falsifying results of their animal testing when they presented evidence of aspartame safety to the FDA for approval as a “food additive”.
If you have breast cancer or a brain tumor, now might be a good time to think about your use of Diet Coke and other products containing aspartame/ NutraSweet.

http://www.dorway.com/jcohen.html Jennifer Cohen wants to shame the FDA into doing its job. Will they NOW divorce the drug companies, reclassify aspartame as a cumulative toxic poison, and then mandate its removal from over 9,000 items in the human diet?
Root canals, infected teeth, cavitations, severe gum disease
Teeth have roots with main canals and thousands of side canals and contained in those side canals are miles of nerves. When dentists perform a root canal, they remove the nerve from the main canals. However they do not have access to the microscopic side canals which have dead nerves left behind in those spaces, even with the ’smarter’ filling materials and methods in use today.
Anaerobic bacteria, which do not require oxygen to survive, thrive in these side canals to grow and excrete toxicity from digesting necrotic (dead) tissue that leads to chronic infection. If an organ or limb dies in our body, we would remove it, but not so with teeth!
Blood supply and lymphatics that surround those dead teeth drains this toxicity and allows it to spread throughout the body, contributing to the inability to fight cancer as it arises in the body.
This toxicity will invade all organ systems and can lead to a plethora of diseases such as cancers, autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, irritable bowel diseases, and depression to name just a few.
Cancer therapies will most likey fail if a patient continues to harbor infection in his/her mouth. The infection that has chronically compromised his/her immune system may come from from root canals as discussed above, but also from infected teeth, cavitations, and severe gum disease. A weakened immune system means a weakened overall ability to eliminate toxicity and to heal as a whole.
Dentist, Frank Jerome states “The idea of keeping a dead, infected organ in the body is only thought to be a good idea by dentists. A root canal-treated tooth always negatively affects your immune system.”

Perfumes, pthalates and testicular cancer
High levels of a chemical blamed for causing infertility in men have been found in some of the world’s best-known perfumes and cosmetics.
Chanel No 5, Christian Dior’s Poison, Eternity from Calvin Klein and Tresor by Lancome were among 34 toiletries found by a Swedish study to contain di-ethylhexyl phthalate or other phthalates. The European Commission is proposing a ban on the use in cosmetics of two of the most potent forms of phthalates amid fears they cause genital abnormalities affecting up to 4 per cent of male babies.
These genital abnormalities - which can include undescended testicles and malformation of the urinary tract - are blamed for soaring levels of testicular cancer in young men. Cases of the disease have risen tenfold in the past century. About 1,900 British males, some as young as 15, are diagnosed every year. Nine out of 10 cases are cured, but doctors are worried by the trend.
Scientists believe the pthalates could be absorbed into women’s bloodstreams through the skin or inhalation.
Numerous studies on rats and mice have shown phthalate exposure causes genital abnormality. The latest research was conducted by a Swedish government-accredited laboratory for Healthcare Without Harm, a US-based organisation representing 300 consumer pressure groups around the world.
Researchers at the Analycen lab analysed 34 leading brands of cosmetics and found more than three-quarters contained phthalates, which help prevent loss of fragrance.
The investigation found other forms of the chemical in Tommy Girl perfume, Impulse Body Spray, Nivea Deo Compact, Sure Ultra deodorant, Shockwaves hair mousse and four hairsprays including Elnett Satin, Pantene Pro-V Extra Hold and Vidal Sassoon.
Per Rosander, who wrote the report, said: “What we know about these chemicals is that they cause damage to the reproductive system. That is why they have been classed by the EU as reproductive toxins.”
Richard Sharpe, of the Medical Research Council’s Human Reproductive Sciences Unit in Edinburgh, said: “If you wanted to produce a list of environmental causes of the reproductive health problems in boys, phthalates would be pretty near the top of the list.”
Actor Julia Sawalha, who played Saffy in Absolutely Fabulous, supports the Women’s Environmental Network, a backer of the Swedish research. “Chemicals that pose a risk to fertility do not belong in cosmetics, and manufacturers should be made to list ingredients,” she said. [The Sunday Times November 25, 2002.]
It seems an inescapable fact that corporations need to be held accountable for the ingredients in the products they sell, and their effect on people’s health. Western governments and ourselves as individuals, need to demand that the War on Prevention is kick started.
In the meantime, we need to avoid all the above if we have cancer already, or wish to avoid it in future.
Some simple actions are:
