Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. In the year 2000 alone, over 183,000 new cases were diagnosed and over 40,000 women died from this disease. In Canada, this disease claims over 5,000 Canadian women annually.

On November 19th. 2000, the Canadian Cancer Society announced that "the total new cancer cases will rise 70% by the year 2015 and will likely outstrip heart disease as the #1 killer of Canadians." Frightening statistics! Isn't it? Doesn't it make good sense for us to take proactive, prevention measures?

What causes breast cancer? According to the Physician and Committee of Responsible Medicine, it is estimated that about 35% to 50% of all cancers are due to nutrition. The American Council on Science and Health advises however that the answer is not that simple. A new booklet, "Risk factors for Breast Cancer", reviews the scientific evidence on the many different factors ( risk factors) that may contribute to a woman's risk of developing this disease.

Among the common risk factors are dietary and lifestyle habits ( modifiable risk factors), and age, gender or family history.(non-modifiable risk factors)

Many nutritionists advises that a low-fat, high fiber diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole wheats, and beans reduces the risk of breast cancer. Certain scientific camps see vegetarians at the lowest risk because of higher blood levels of beta-carotene and the fact that they consume more vitamin c, and have a stronger immune system. Other nutritionists disagree.

According to Dr. Ruth Kava, PHd, Director of Nutrition at the American Council on Health and Science, (ACSH) although epidemiological studies support the concept that consumption of ample amounts of fruits and vegetables can help protect against various types of cancer, in a study in the February 14th. issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)finds no such benefit, at least with respect to breast cancer.

Dr.Stephanie Smith-Warner,PHD, from the Harvard School of Public Health re-analized various data and also concluded that there was no significant differences in the risk of breast cancer between women who reported consuming large amounts of fruits and vegetables and those who did not. Clearly, there is a great deal of conflicting scientific views.

Breast Cancer Prevention

Dr Gilbert Ross, M.D, Medical Director of ACSH noted that "while there are abundant reasons to consume five fruits and vegetables a day, there is a better way to reduce the risk of breast cancer...."chemoprevention", which he considers the most effective way they know to reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Chemoprevention is a new technique which is the use of medicines to reduce the risks of developing a disease and todate, the only drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration is tamoxifen.

Another technique which is usually used only in cases of extremely high risk is preventive surgery.

A more natural preventative approach with no known side-effects focusses on supplementing the diet with Calcium D-Glucarate. To learn more visit and click on "Glucarate Report" by Dr. Thomas Slaga,PHD. Also visit

You'll notice that many top cancer research centers such as the AMC Cancer Research Center in Denver, Colorado and the M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center, in Houston, Texas, the #2 cancer research center in the United States, supports the scientific view that patented Calcium D-Glucarate has been shown to be highly effective as a detoxifying agent and increased levels through supplementation demonstrate greater health benefits.

What's the wise course of action? Take lots of vegetables, fruits, fish etc and supplement your diet with patented Calcium D-Glucarate...along with lifestyle changes.

Where can you purchase an all-natural dietary supplement that contains the maximum of 400mg of patented Calcium D-Glucarate combined with other proprietary beneficial herbs? Please send me an e-mail at:
