Breast Cancer Prevention Strategies
So in summary, it’s important to realize that even though many
well-intentioned physicians and media will seek to convince you of
the value of cancer screening, it does NOT in any way equate to cancer
prevention. Although early detection is important, recently a number
of very popular screening methods have been shown to cause more harm
In terms of genetic testing, ask yourself what you would do with
the information, should it turn out you’re a carrier of the breast
cancer gene. Ideally, such a test result would spur you to take real
prevention seriously. But even if you don’t have the mutation, lifestyle
factors are still a much larger risk factor overall. Remember, the
percentage of diagnosed breast cancer cases that have the mutated gene
is in the low single digits. Something else, primarily your lifestyle,
accounts for the remainder.
In the largest review of research into lifestyle and breast cancer,
the American Institute of Cancer Research estimated that about 40 percent
of U.S. breast cancer cases could be prevented if people made wiser
lifestyle choices. I believe these estimates are far too low, and it
is more likely that 75 percent to 90 percent of breast cancers could
be avoided by strictly applying the recommendations below.
Avoid sugar, especially fructose. All forms of sugar are
detrimental to health in general and promote cancer. Fructose, however,
is clearly one of the most harmful and should be avoided as much as
Optimize your vitamin D. Vitamin D influences virtually every
cell in your body and is one of nature's most potent cancer fighters.
Vitamin D is actually able to enter cancer cells and trigger apoptosis
(cell death). If you have cancer, your vitamin D level should be between
70 and 100 ng/ml. Vitamin D works synergistically with every cancer
treatment I'm aware of, with no adverse effects. I suggest you try
watching my one-hour free lecture on vitamin D to learn more.
Remember that if you take high doses of oral vitamin D3
supplements, you also need to increase your vitamin K2 intake, as
vitamin D increases the need for K2 to function properly. See my
previous article What You Need to Know About Vitamin K2, D and
Calcium for more information.
Please consider joining one of Grassroots Health’s D*Action’s
vitamin D studies to stay on top of your vitamin D performance. For

Testing Can Help You Optimize Your Health.
Get plenty of natural vitamin A. There is evidence that
vitamin A also plays a role in helping prevent breast cancer. It's
best to obtain it from vitamin A-rich foods, rather than a supplement.
Your best sources are organic egg yolks, raw butter, raw whole milk,
and beef or chicken liver.
Lymphatic breast massage can help enhance your body’s natural
ability to eliminate cancerous toxins. This can be applied by a licensed
therapist, or you can implement self-lymphatic massage. It also promotes
Avoid charring your meats. Charcoal or flame broiled meat is
linked with increased breast cancer risk. Acrylamide—a carcinogen created
when starchy foods are baked, roasted or fried—has been found to increase
breast cancer risk as well.
Avoid unfermented soy products. Unfermented soy is high
in plant estrogens, or phytoestrogens, also known as isoflavones. In some
studies, soy appears to work in concert with human estrogen to increase
breast cell proliferation, which increases the chances for mutations
and cancerous cells.
Improve your insulin receptor sensitivity. The best way to
do this is by avoiding sugar and grains and making sure you are exercising,
especially with Peak Fitness.
Maintain a healthy body weight. This will come naturally when
you begin eating right for your nutritional type and exercising. It's
important to lose excess body fat because fat produces estrogen.
Drink a half to whole quart of organic green vegetable juice
daily. Please review my juicing instructions for more detailed
Get plenty of high-quality animal-based omega-3 fats, such as
krill oil. Omega-3 deficiency is a common underlying factor for cancer.
Curcumin. This is the active ingredient in turmeric and in
high concentrations can be very useful adjunct in the treatment of
breast cancer. It shows immense therapeutic potential in preventing
breast cancer metastasis. It's important to know that curcumin is
generally not absorbed that well, so I've provided several absorption
Avoid drinking alcohol, or at least limit your alcoholic drinks
to one per day.
Breastfeed exclusively for up to six months. Research shows
breastfeeding can reduce your breast cancer risk.
Avoid wearing underwire bras. There is a good deal of data
that metal underwire bras can heighten your breast cancer risk.
Avoid electromagnetic fields as much as possible. Even electric
blankets can increase your cancer risk.
Avoid synthetic hormone replacement therapy. Breast cancer
is an estrogen-related cancer, and according to a study published in
the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, breast cancer rates for
women dropped in tandem with decreased use of hormone replacement therapy.
(There are similar risks for younger women who use oral contraceptives.
Birth control pills, which also comprised of synthetic hormones, have
been linked to cervical and breast cancers).
If you are experiencing excessive menopausal symptoms, you may want to
consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy instead, which uses hormones
that are molecularly identical to the ones your body produces and do not wreak
havoc on your system. This is a much safer alternative.
Avoid BPA, phthalates and other xenoestrogens. These are estrogen-like
compounds that have been linked to increased breast cancer risk
Make sure you're not iodine deficient, as there's compelling
evidence linking iodine deficiency with breast cancer. Dr. David
Brownstein, author of the book Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can't
Live Without It, is a proponent of iodine for breast cancer. It actually
has potent anticancer properties and has been shown to cause cell death
in breast and thyroid cancer cells.
