Causes Of Cancer
Heavy metals released by industrial processes such as lead, arsenic, chlordane, DDT, mercury, aluminum, nickel, cadmium, and many others have no safe level in the human system. These toxins accumulate within the fat cells, the central nervous system, bones, brain, glands and hair. Heavy metals mimic the activity of estrogen once inside the body. It is estimated that 10% of all cancers are attributed to job related exposure to carcinogens like benzene, diesel exhaust, hair dyes, painting materials, polychlorinated biphenyl's and soot.
Municipal water can contain many different contaminants, including disease-causing bacteria, radio-active particles, heavy metals, gasoline solvents, industrial wastes, benzene and trichlorohekylene and radionucleotides, which cause more cancer than any other stressor, challenged only by pesticides. Chlorine is associated with a 20% to 40% increase in colon and rectal cancer. Two chlorinated acids, MX and DCA are among the more dangerous chemicals found in the U.S. water supply. Fluoride, a poison second in toxicity to arsenic, is the most lucrative way for the aluminum industry to get rid of sodium fluoride, a toxic waste product of phosphate fertilizer production. Fluoride can produce cancer by transforming normal cells into cancerous ones, even at concentrations of only 1 PPM (Parts per million). While fluoridated water has been outlawed in 14 European countries for being too toxic for human consumption, the U.S. still regards up to 4 PPM as a safe level. Each year about 150,000 tons of Flouride is pumped into the nations reservoirs, most of it as recycled industrial waste. 90,000 cases of cancer a year are contributed to fluoride consumption.
TOBACCO & SMOKING
Tobacco smoke is a potent carcinogen, causing about 30% of all cancer deaths in the U.S. Over 2,000 chemical poisons are generated by tobacco smoke. Nicotine and Carbon monoxide reduces oxygen to the brain, lungs and heart being a promoter to all types of cancer cells. As a result, tobacco smoke offers the perfect formula for initiating and promoting cancer.
Woman taking birth control pills for more than 4 years are twice as likely as non-users to develop breast cancer by age 50. Dairy milk with recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone is used to increase milk yield and has cancer-producing factors. Cholesterol lowering drugs such as lovastatin and gemfibrozil are found to be cancer causing. Low thyroid output is another contributing factor of cancer growth. Read more
