What exactly is preeclampsia?

Preeclampsia is a condition in pregnancy characterized by high blood pressure, sometimes with fluid retention and abnormal quantities of protein in the urine, which can indicate damage to the kidneys. Even a slight increase in blood pressure may be a sign of preeclampsia and, if left untreated, can lead to complications for both mother and baby, even fatal complications. Preeclampsia is most common during the first pregnancy.If you don't get enough vitamin D, the baby's bones can become soft and more vulnerable to breakage and rickets.

Why Food Is Your Medicine

Written By:Sayer Ji, FounderFollowing on the heels of Angelina Jolie's widely celebrated decision to remove her breasts 'preventively,' few folks truly understand how important preventing environmental chemical exposures and incorporating cancer-preventing foods into their diet really is in reducing the risk of gene-mediated breast cancer.  
There is so much fear and misinformation surrounding the so-called 'Breast Cancer Associated' genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, that it should help to dispel some prevailing myths by looking at the crucial role that epigenetic factors play in their expression.  Literally 'above' (epi) or 'beyond' the control of the genes, these factors include environmental chemical exposures, nutrition and stress, which profoundly affect cancer risk within us all, regardless of what variant ('mutated' or 'wild')* that we happen to carry within our genomes.In 2012, a very important study was published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry that looked at the role a natural compound called resveratrol may play in preventing the inactivation of the BRCA-1 gene. BRCA-1 is known as a "caretaker" gene because it is responsible for healing up double-strand breaks within our DNA. When the BRCA-1 gene is rendered dysfunctional or becomes inactivated, either through a congenital/germline inheritance of DNA defects ('mutation') or through chemical exposures, the result is the same: harm to the DNA repair mechanisms within the affected cells (particularly breast and ovary; possibly testicular), hence increasing the risk of cancer.

Maintaining optimal vitamin D levels will significantly decrease breast cancer risk

Breast cancer is a malignant tumor, which is caused by a group of cancerous cells growing in the breast and into other areas around it. The stage of breast cancer depends on the size of the tumor, and if it has spread to other parts of the body.There are many things that can increase your chances of developing breast cancer. There are some things that you can’t change, like being female, and some things that you can change, like your weight or using birth control. It is a combination of both genetics and lifestyle factors that increase your risk of developing breast cancer.
2012 study done in Belgium looked at women with early breast cancer and their vitamin D levels. Five years later, they looked at how their breast cancer had progressed. The researchers found that:
  • Women with low vitamin D levels had bigger tumors than women with high vitamin D levels.
  • Women with low vitamin D levels had an increased risk of death during the study.
  • Post-menopausal women with high vitamin D levels were most likely to have the smallest tumors and lowest chance of death.

Breast Cancer Screening Isn't Really About Prevention

More important than having knowledge of "detached" pearls of scientific data or information about a topic is the proper understanding of that data's meaning and significance within a larger context.A serious problem, such as breast cancer, can only really be solved if causes are addressed. The prevention of anything is the avoidance of a problem BEFORE it "raises its ugly head" by taking care of its causes. Breast cancer screening aimed at "early detection", with both traditional and non-traditional procedures, is about diagnosis (and subsequent treatment) of a problem that has NOT been prevented. It is discovery of a problem (i.e., breast cancer) once it already has manifested itself in the human body. The manifestation of breast cancer is testimony that causes of the disease have not been taken care of.

Recent studies point to a strong link between aluminum and breast cancer.

The correlation between aluminum and brain damage, including Alzheimer's disease, has been established by extensive research and is reason enough to avoid aluminum exposure. Recent studies find a strong connection between aluminum levels and breast cancer, giving additional motivation to avoid this toxin. Aluminum is found in cosmetics, foods, cookware and vaccines.

Would you (still) have mammograms if you knew that:

Many, if not most, "breast cancers" detected by screening with mammography are non-cancers;? practically all non-cancers get treated with biopsies, surgery, radiation therapy, and other orthodox cancer treatments. That is, many essentially healthy women receive unnecessary treatments, therefore they get seriously injured -particularly because these treatments frequently induce secondary cancers;? primary tumors tend to spread (metastasize) predominantly after a person received surgery, radiation or chemo therapy, and early detection of breast cancer by mammography increases the use of these invasive cancer treatments; early detection of breast cancer by mammography does not decrease (or only non-significantly) the mortality rate because the orthodox theories on cancer progression, from early to advanced stages, rest on flawed research and erroneous medical dogmas; mammography increases total mortality;
A single mammogram can cause severe, complex DNA damage, the type of genetic injury that increases the risk of (breast) cancer;? the lowest possible dose of ionizing radiation increases the risk of cancer, and medical x-rays are probably the principal cause of breast cancer;? ionizing radiation doesn't merely cause genetic defects but induces other damaging, systemic cell-destabilizing disruptions and carcinogenic effects (which, however, are ignored by the medical profession in their assessment of the safety of x-rays);? the claim that the low radiation exposure from mammograms is a "hypothetical" risk is derived from corrupted raw databases on irradiation (the corruption, i.e., "re-adjustment" of the data, entailed to hide the great toxicity of radiation (at low levels). This allows big corporate entities, such as the medical industry, to claim "officially" that low dose medical x-rays are a small, "speculative" or "negligent" risk);? the highly influential pro-mammogram research studies that led to the global introduction of mammography are seriously flawed;? the medical orthodoxy has a long history of denying the various real dangers of mammography and exaggerating the benefits of mammographic screening, respectively;
An extensive, intricate web of politics, corruption and bias in science research, vested interests, incestuous interrelationships between the cancer industry and government authorities, and sociological factors obfuscate or hide the real facts about mammography from the public at large;? you have a small chance of receiving a benefit but great odds of getting harmed?
All of the statements above are comprehensively referenced and discussed in my recently released (e)book The Mammogram Myth: The Independent Investigation Of Mammography The Medical Profession Doesn't Want You To Know About. http://www.supplements-and-health.com/mammograms.html
But what does the science say? This past February, a twenty-five-year-long Canadian trial found no difference in death rates from breast cancer among women who had regular mammograms and those who did not.
