Breast cancer increases: are hormone disrupting chemicals the reason?
A new paper concludes that hormone disrupting chemicals (known as EDCs), may be a crucial factor behind the current increase of breast cancer cases.

New Studies: Monsanto's Best Selling "Safe" Pesticide Is Highly Toxic - Roundup

Two new peer-reviewed scientific studies have further confirmed the toxicity of glyphosate, the world's most commonly used herbicide. The June 2005 scientific journal Environmental Health Perspectives reports that glyphosate, sold by Monsanto under the brand name "Roundup", damages human placental cells at exposure levels ten times less than what the company claims is safe. A study in the August journal Ecological Applications found that even when applied at concentrations that are one-third of the maximum concentrations typically found in waterways, Roundup still killed up to 71 percent of tadpoles in the study. Similar glyphosate studies around the world have been equally alarming. The American Academy of Family Physicians epidemiological research has now linked exposure to the herbicide with increased risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a life-threatening cancer, while a Canadian study has linked glyphosate exposure with increased risk for miscarriage. A 2002 study linked glyphosate exposure with increased incidence of attention deficit disorder in children. Despite these studies, Monsanto continues to advertise Roundup, sprayed heavily on 140 million acres of genetically engineered crops across the world, as one of the "safest" pesticides on the market.

The Accidental Crusader
Some scientists believe pesticides can cause cancer. Dr. Nicole Bruinsma isn't convinced that's what led to hers. Still, she's leading the battle to have them banned.

Tri-Bullet Dr. Nicole Bruinsma has told a federal government committee that there is a link between pesticides and breast cancer. Click here.

Tri-Bullet Dr. Bruinsma lost her battle with cancer on February 27, 2002, at the age of 42. She would have been delighted that cancer victim's fight spurs Giant Canadian Food Chain Rejects Chemical Pesticides.

Tri-Bullet Dr. Bruinsma is the Winnrer of the 2002 Environmental Health People's Choice Gold Award.

Cancer Awareness Coalition
Marianna Cates was weeding her organic garden in New York's Ulster County, the heart of the state's apple-gowing region, when a plane swooped low and dusted her with pesticide. "The plane came so close I could see the pilot's face," she says. "I was coated with white powder."

Cancer, Inc. - Sierra Magazine
They make the chemicals, they run the treatment centers, and they're still looking for "the cure" no wonder they won't tell you about breast cancer prevention.

The Marketing of Breast Cancer
Breast cancer awareness month and races for cures gloss over the hidden agendas and conflicts of interest in the so-called fight against breast cancer.

Cancer - Are Chemicals To Blame?
Cancer may be largely to blame on man made chemicals in our environment, rather than on smoking and diet, the factors that are emphasized by medical experts.

Science, Precaution and Pesticides
Lymphoma is cancer of the white blood cells, and half the people who get it die within 5 years. Those 5 years are likely to be a hellish combination of fear, worry, pain, and sickness caused by standard medical therapies. This is a disease that gives its victims a terrifying roller coaster ride through the valley of death.

What Causes Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer kills 46,000 women in the U.S. each year. On average, each of these women has her life cut short by 20 years, for a total loss of about a million person-years of productive life each year. Of course this huge cost to society is heaped on even greater burdens, the personal anguish and suffering, the motherless children, the shattered families.
