We spend an awful lot of time and money researching the environmental risks affecting our plants BUT what about the environmental impact to the human body? It may be difficult to face that you and your loved ones have been exposed to toxic chemicals that could very well be blamed for cancer.
Do we “inherit” mutated cells OR do we pass along chemical exposure from generation to generation? It sure brings new meaning to the term “predisposed”. Hmm…
The cancer rate in America is 1 in 2 males and 1 in 3 females. Don’t you think its time to quit spending all of our resources looking for cures and start looking for answers with a focus on prevention?
The following excerpt is from an article in Rodale News specifically addressing breast cancer, however the consequences of exposure is true for ALL types of cancer (and other diseases).
Read it and weep:
Rising breast cancer rates may be a consequence of pesticides, plastics, perfume, and even the flameproofing chemicals on your couch…
“We now have sufficient data to be seriously concerned about the increased risk for many diseases, including breast cancer, that result from exposures to common environmental factors, especially those that interfere with the endocrine system,” says Janet Gray, PhD, professor and director of the Program in Science, Technology & Society at Vassar College, and the author of a new report from the Breast Cancer Fund that explores the complicated link between chemicals in the environment and breast cancer. “We need to take this data seriously.”
The timing of exposures is critical, says Gray. There are certain periods of a girl’s life during which exposure to problematic chemicals, whether it’s BPA in plastics or the endocrine-disrupting pesticides used on our food, could cause serious damage. “Those periods of high risk are consistent with what we know about breast physiology,” she says. Exposures to chemicals in the womb and immediately after birth are crucial, she says, because that’s when breast tissue is just developing. Similarly, during adolescence and during pregnancy, girls and women are experiencing incredible growth of breast tissue, and their bodies are easily influenced by chemicals and pesticides that act like estrogen.
The influence doesn’t stop at environmental chemicals and pesticides, either. “Radiation is the one unequivocally accepted environmental cause of breast cancer,” Gray says.
