Breast Health – Heavy Metals, Chemicals, Infections and Toxins found in Breast Tissues and Lymph Nodes
Clearing toxins and infections before the development of Breast Cancer, getting Pregnant and Nursing a baby should be the top priority for all women
Our breast are not only objects of beauty: they are a source of comfort and nutrition for developing babies, On the physiological side they are in reality just modified sweat glands composed of fat and glandular tissue.
The USA Breast Cancer Fund now into its 6th edition of a book “State of the Evidence” highlights the many different toxins found during Biopsy of Breast tissue taken from women with Breast cancer. Pesticides and Herbicides are similar in composition to our own oestrogen, mimicking the effects and disrupting the normal oestrogen metabolism in our bodies causing havoc in our hormonal expression (PMT, Menopausal, Menstrual Irregularities, Emotionally)
Overwhelming evidence is pointing to high levels of these oestrogen mimickers playing a central role in the development of breast cancer.
These toxins are not eliminated during the course of surgery and chemotherapy – nor can they be eliminated with diet, supplementation or detoxing kits.
FCT individually targets the many different toxins that can be the causative factors in the development of Breast Cancer.
FCT’s Aim is to Identify:
- Where toxins and pathogens reside
- Which organs and tissues are damaged and weakened
- Which toxins are prioritized in the treatment i.e. metals, chemicals, parasites, infections
- Individual support and protection to those damaged and weakened systems i.e. mammary glands, lymph nodes, lymphatic system, heart, bone marrow, kidneys, liver.
- The order of the treatment and the potency of each individual remedy needed and timing between each remedy.
- Not to over-burden the body with more than a few toxins being released at any given time.
The above is vital for the safe elimination of the toxins. Without this support the body stands little chance of success with the toxins being released in an uncontrolled and damaging manner, flooding and overwhelming an already weak system.
Children are born sick – A USA Red Cross study of newborns umbilical cord blood found on average 287 toxic chemicals – all absorbed while in the womb – Breast fed babies are subject to whatever the Mother has accumulated in her breasts over many years – avoiding exposure from the time of pregnancy might help – but it certainly does not address or solve the problem
Some identified toxins:
- Heavy Metals – Aluminium (deodorants, baking powder), mercury (amalgams), lead (petrol, lipstick), cadmium (cigarettes) Heavy metals are found in all petroleum based cosmetics.
- Parabens – widely used as preservatives by cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries for the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. They are found in Shampoos, make-up, moisturisers, shaving gels, spray-tanning solutions and food additives. They are becoming increasingly controversial as they have been found in breast cancer tumours. The finger is also being pointed at these as a factor in the increasing prevalence of early puberty in girls.
- Pesticides -One commonly used type of pesticide, organ-phosphate was first developed during World War II as a nerve gas. Pesticides were introduced after WWII as certain companies looked for new ways to market surplus war chemicals. Poisons originally designed to kill people were successfully re-purposed as bug killers (quote Dr Mercola from “Fed-up”) a documentary released in 2002 – pest control on crops, fly sprays.
- Herbicides – Round-up – a common weed killer
- Flame Retardants – products include polyester resins, plastic polymers and rigid polyurethane foams – think fabrics, curtains, lounge suits, clothes etc.
- Formaldehyde – found in perfumes, deodorants, toothpaste, lipsticks, nail polish, cleaning products, building products, embalming bodies.
- Endogenous and Pharmaceutical Hormones and other Endocrine disrupting chemicals –the Birth Control Pill (a steroid) HRT, Oestrogen, Progestogens (synthetic) and DES
- Aromatic Mines – Polyurethan, Pesticides, Azo dyes
- Halogenated organic Solvents – Dry cleaning, hair spray propellant, soil fumigants, food processing, gasoline additives, paint and spot removers.
- 1,3-Butadiene – Cigarette smoke, automobile exhaust, gasoline fumes, emissions from industrial facilities
- Nitro-PAHs – Air pollution primarily fro diesel exhaust
- Ochratoxin A – A naturally occurring Mycotoxin in contaminated grains, nuts and pork
- Acrylamide – Diet (especially starchy foods such as french fries cooked at high temperatures, tobacco smoke, polyacrylamide gels in consumer products such as diapers
- Benzene – Gasoline, tobacco smoke, adhesive removers, paint sealant finishers, engine fuel and oils
- Ethylene – a gas used to sterilise medical equipment, food and spices, clothing, also found in tobacco smoke, automotive and paint products
- Perfluoro-octanoic acid PFOA – Non-stick and stain resistant outings on rugs, carpet, furniture, clothes and cookware, fire-fighting applications,, cosmetics, lubricants, paints and adhesives
- Styrene – Food that has been in contact with polystyrene consumer products and building materials including carpets and adhesives.
- Ionizing Radiation – from regular Mammograms
- EMF’s – cell phones, computers, TV’s, – studies have shown cancers grow at 24 times the rate on exposure to emf’s

In addition to cancer causing properties, high Oestrogen affects our natural progesterone production and can cause a raft of problems such as:
Weight gain, insomnia, Irregular Bleeding, Fibrocystic Breasts, Fibroids, Infertility, Skipped Perieods, Mood swings, Irritability, Palpitations, Dry skin, Thinning hair, Migraines and lower libido
