Breast Cancer

What Causes Breast Cancer?

In order to deal properly with breast cancer we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.  We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow breast cancer to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind breast cancer consists of three steps:

Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors

Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to breast cancer.  Here are six possibilities:
  • High Fat Diet Consequences
  • Low DHEA
  • High Female Testosterone
  • Bacterial Dysbiosis
  • Low Progesterone
  • Alcohol Consequences

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
intolerance of sugars
confirmed high testosterone levels
low energy/stamina
elevated estrogen levels
adult acne
hyperactivity
moderate alcohol consumption
liver cancer
current birth control pill use
regular episodes of diarrhea
very frequent stools
colon cancer
... and more than 50 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of breast cancer:
Cause Probability Status
Low Progesterone 96% Confirm
Alcohol Consequences 64% Possible
Low DHEA 15% Unlikely
High Fat Diet Consequences 1% Ruled out
High Female Testosterone 1% Ruled out
Bacterial Dysbiosis 1% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate cancer, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you suffered from Breast Cancer?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Yes but now resolved for over 5 years
→ Yes but now resolved for under 5 years
→ Current problem but containable
→ Current problem and aggressive/spreading
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of breast cancer or breast cancer, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Alcohol-related Problems

Since the original recommendation regarding alcohol was published, researchers at the Harvard Medical School found that even 3 drinks a week put women at increased risk for breast cancer.  Women who had one or more drinks a day were found to be at 60% higher risk than women who did not drink.

Bacterial Dysbiosis

Epidemiologic and experimental data implicate putrefactive dysbiosis in the development of colon cancer and breast cancer.  A putrefaction dysbiosis is accompanied by an increase in fecal concentrations of various bacterial enzymes which metabolize bile acids to tumor promoters and deconjugate excreted estrogens, raising the plasma estrogen level.

Effects of a High Fat Diet

There has been much recent research on the relationship between cancer and dietary fat – possibly more than on any other component of the diet.  A connection between high fat consumption and breast and colon cancer (two of the most deadly forms of the disease) has appeared in many studies.

High Female Testosterone Level

One study reported that women with the highest levels of testosterone were twice as likely to develop breast cancer as those with the lowest levels.  [Journal of the National Cancer Institute, 17th April 2002]

Progesterone Low or Estrogen Dominance

One study reported that women with the highest levels of estrogen were twice as likely to develop breast cancer as those with the lowest levels.  [Journal of the National Cancer Institute, 17th April 2002]
