How to Prevent Cancer
How to Easily Prevent Most Breast Cancer
While conventional medicine tries very hard to convince people that breast cancer occurs because of family history, an interaction between the environment and a defective gene, or due to an estrogen mutagen; there is actually a much simpler explanation that is based upon at least 30 years of scientific research.
This is an exploratory presentation of how most people can prevent at least 18 different types of age-related cancer [Grant 2009] from a science-based natural health perspective. It maintains its strong objectivity by merging the DINOMIT Model of Age-Related Cancer Development with the relevant information contained in a conventional medicine UCSF 60 minute video lecture on the basic biology of cancer. This presenatation is using the example of breast cancer to make its points.
This Natural Health Perspective coverage of how to avoid getting age-related cancer in your lifetime differs dramatically from the usual academic approach. Refreshingly, it takes a practical natural health orientation on how to prevent breast cancer that centers on avoiding vitamin D insufficiency. The thing that should strike any impartial observer of the national concern over breast cancer as covered both by the news media, Pink Ribbon Cancer Awareness campaigns, and conventional medicine in general is their steadfast refusal to recognize the important role played by inadequate blood serum 25(OH) D levels in the development of most, if not all, forms of cancer.
In short, Breast cancer is a vitamin D deficiency disease.[Baggerly 2013] In addition, most age-related epithelial cancers are a vitamin D deficiency disease.
"It is projected that raising the minimum year-around [blood] serum 25(OH)D level to 40 to 60 ng/mL (100-150 nmol/L) would prevent approximately 58,000 new cases of breast cancer and 49,000 new cases of colorectal cancer each year, and three fourths [75%] of deaths from these diseases in the United States and Canada, based on observational studies combined with a randomized trial."
In natural health circles, prevention is always better than cure.

Prevent Breast Cancer
Prevent Cancer in Your Lifetime with Vitamin D.
The single simplest thing that anybody can do to prevent getting age-related cancer in their lifetime is to maintain their blood serum 25(OH)D levels between 40 and 70 ng/ml, by any means necessary. In the United States, that usually means supplementing with approximately 5,000 IU of vitamin D-3, daily.
The younger you are the easier it should be to avoid getting cancer in your lifetime. In other words, younger individuals can probably get safely by at the lower end of these recommended blood levels (i.e., 40 - 50 ng/ml).
Rest assured that older adults could likewise prevent age-related cancer in their lifetime simply by maintaining their blood serum 25(OH) D levels at the higher end of these recommended levels (i.e., 60 - 70 ng/ml).
Just as obviously, the sooner you take these health recommendations seriously, and actually get your blood serum 25(OH) D level between 40 and 70 ng/ml; the more likely you are to avoid getting cancer in your lifetime.
Vitamin D: Breast Cancer Prevention & Treatment
The older you are the bigger your reservoir of undiagnosed disease, or amount of preexisting precancerous cellular abnormalities, is going to be. Without restoring vitamin D and calcium to adequate blood levels in order to reconnect the devolved cells, to reestablish intercellular tight junctions, and to inhibits cell mitosis or reproduction; given enough time, your reservoir of undiagnosed disease would develop into full blown cancer, in each one of us, according to the DINOMIT Model Of Cancer Development.
Breast Cancer's Big Secret
Most people are very confused about how cancer strikes people down in the prime of their life. Breast cancer as an age-related cancer does NOT appear magically out of nowhere, overnight. Abnormalities, or precancerous cells, take between 15 and 20 years to develop before conventional medicine can diagnosis cancer in a female.
The 15 to 20 years estimated figure depends entirely upon your individual level of vitamin D insufficiency. Individuals extremely deficient in vitamin D, will develop cancer in less than 15 years, whereas others with higher blood serum 25(OH) D levels could theoretically take longer than 20 years to develop full blown cancer. The point being that insufficient blood serum 25(OH)D levels results in cancer development, whereas adequate levels of blood serum 25(OH)D prevents cancer, according to the DINOMIT Model Of Cancer Development.
Accordingly, a bad family history, a bad interaction between the environment and a defective gene, or even a estrogen mutagen is NOT necessary, at all, for these precancerous growths to develop. All that is required is insufficient blood serum 25(OH)D levels.
Genetic Breast Cancer Diagnosed Years Earlier in Younger Generations
This is a common conventional medicine pronouncement that can be easily explained with the Vitamin D Sunshine Hypothesis. The younger generation is spending less and less time in outdoor activities in favor of indoor high technology pursuits. Accordingly, the younger generation has the lowest blood levels of vitamin D than any other population demographic.[Genuis 2009]
Breast cancer is a vitamin D deficiency disease.
Why Vitamin D Works
The DINOMIT Model of Cancer Development theorizes that:
Blood serum 25(OH)D levels between 40 and 70 ng/ml will either prevent precancerous cell abnormalities from developing in the first place, or it is capable of gradually shrinking any preexisting cellular abnormalities, or will be able to kill them off with an innate immune system with natural killer cells that has been strengthen with vitamin D.
In short, by blocking the development of cancer at the earliest stages possible, or by normalizing any cellular abnormalities that have already developed at the earliest stages possible, you have effectively prevented yourself from ever getting cancer in your lifetime.
Ideally, you would want to begin supplementation with vitamin D before you are actually diagnosed with cancer, even if vitamin D will theoretically work in all seven stages of the DINOMIT Model of Cancer Development.
More than Vitamin D is Necessary to Prevent Cancer
The Natural Health Perspective, as always, recommends eating a healthy whole food diet that will satisfy your body's need for most nutrients, as well as engage in regular physical exercise. Exercise has a suppressive effect on cancer.
While vitamin D is the most important hormone to be supplementing with, other nutrients are required in order to receive the full anti-cancer effect of this highly recommended natural therapy.
Several Other Nutrients are Required To Prevent Breast Cancer.
Theoretically, the health benefit to be obtained from increased blood serum 25(OH) D levels, depend upon anti-cancer co-factors which must be present in your body, in adequate amounts.
- Calcium - The most important co-factor that should be satisfied by obtaining calcium from your diet. An additional proactive osteoporosis supplement program is used by many people.
- Vitamin K-2
