Breast Cancer Seeds
"I'm happy to tell you that having been through surgery
and chemotherapy and radiation, breast cancer is officially
behind me. I feel absolutely great and I am raring to go."

Once diagnosed, breast cancer forever remains a concern.
The shocking truth oncologists do not share with their
surviving patients is that once the enemy is incorrectly
perceived to be defeated, no woman will ever actually
remain completely free.
The July 10, 2014 issue of the journal 'Cancer Letters'
identifies cancer stem cells as key factors in the
regeneration of tumors after traditional radiation
and chemotherapy fail. Breast cancer stem cells are
future breast cancer seeds.
Doctors at Qingdao University Medical College in China
collaborated with research-physicians at the University
of California at Davis in Sacramento, California, finding:
"Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among
women worldwide...Breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs) are shown
to exhibit unique growth abilities including self-renewal,
differentiation potential, and resistance to most anti-cancer
agents including chemo- and/or radiotherapy, all of which are
believed to contribute to the development and overall
aggressiveness of the recurrent or metastatic lesions."
Nine months before Thursday's 7/10/14 landmark publication,
Notmilk alerted readers to the real science by writing:

"Brazilian scientists were shocked after assaying breast
cancer tumor cells. Researchers expected to find that
between one ten-thousandth of one percent and one-tenth
of one percent of cancer cells would consist of cancer
stem cells. Instead, doctors found cases in which 40
percent of tumor cells actually were stem cells."
"When traditional cancer therapies fail, including chemotherapy
or radiation, the stems cells survive and remain as future
"seeds" to re-grow existing or more aggressive future cancers.
"There is a phytochemical in kale (zeaxanthin) which prevents
breast cancer stem cells from growing. The magic pill? Dark-green
leafy kale, found in supermarkets everywhere! Researchers have
determined that cooked kale contains more of these plant
chemicals than raw kale."

When buying peppers for salad or roasting, I usually purchase
the green and red ones and pass on the orange. Never again.
Notmilk's research shows that orange peppers contain enormous
amounts of zeaxanthin. So do spinach and zucchini. For your
sweet tooth, eat zeaxanthin-rich grapes, kiwi, and freshly
squeezed orange juice.
Once cured, no breast cancer survivor remains free. Her
two-pronged therapy should be to:
1) Eliminate breast cancer rocket fuel, IGF-1 found
in milk and dairy products. See:
2) Consume natural plant chemicals which inhibit breast
cancer stem cell growth.

My efforts to join the fight against breast cancer all
began around the fact that women were getting short-changed
in the medical arena."
