Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for April 19, 2006

I applaude Wendy Mesley. She had a health issue and wasn’t satisfied with the answers she was getting so she did her own investigation. (Very similar to me except for the fact that she is a reporter for the largest television network in Canada.)

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, here are the seven steps to good health:

1) Don’t smoke
2) Eat your veggies
3) Exercise
4) Stay out of the sun
5) Get screened regularly
6) Visit your doctor and dentist regularly
7) Avoid cancer-causing substances

Those are all great tips for healthy living – but like so many other Canadians with cancer, Wendy Mesley did all of them and still got the disease. Clearly, there must be something else going on. The real cancer story is the fact that nearly one in two of us are going to get this disease.

From the Breast Cancer Society of Canada: “In 2005, an estimated 21,600 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,300 will die from it. The cause of breast cancer is unknown and cannot be prevented.”

Interestingly enough, of all the facts and risks listed for Breast Cancer, the birth control pill is not one of them. Here’s some facts from Austrailia:

One in eight women in Australia will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 85. The number of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia increased from 5,318 in 1983 to 12,027 in 2002. It is projected that there will be 13,261 women diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 and 14,818 in 2011.

The incidence of breast cancer has skyrocketed over the last couple of decades. During this time the lives of women have changed dramatically with fewer babies being born and to older mothers than ever before.

Medical researchers have long recognised early puberty, late menopause, small number or no children and lack of breastfeeding as risk factors for the development of breast cancer. Enabling these lifestyle changes was the development of the oral contraceptive pill. The question that needs to be asked is whether the taking of the oral contraceptive pill has any part to play in the development of breast cancer. As reported by the study into the breast cancer cluster all ten women had taken the pill for varying periods of 2 to 18 years.

The Women’s Health Initiative Clinical Trial reported that prolonged exposure to exogenous ostrogens and progestins in hormone replacement therapy increases a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer, and recently the World Health Organisation classified both hormone replacement therapy and oral contraceptives as group 1 carcinogens.

A new analysis reveals that U.S. breast cancer rates plunged more than 7 percent in 2003 and strongly suggests that the reason is less hormone use. Millions of women quit taking menopause hormones after a big federal study found that the pills raised the risk of breast cancer.

The estrogen in birth control pills is a synthetic form called ethinyl estradiol. It’s a potent form of estrogen that is roughly four to ten times stronger than that used in different types of HRT.

A meta-analysis 2006 from the Mayo Clinic into oral contraceptive use as a risk factor for premenopausal breast cancer concluded that use of oral contraceptives is associated with an increased risk of premenopausal breast cancer, especially with use before first full term pregnancy. This being due to the fact that the nulliparous breast is made up of undifferentiated structures which are susceptible to carcinogens and it is not until a full term pregnancy that the breast is completely developed and not as vulnerable.

And there’s always the other side of a story…

Birth Control Pill Link to Breast Cancer

By Terry Vanderheyden

The Pill: “the largest unregulated human trial that’s ever been conducted”

CHICAGO, March 7, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A world leader in cancer causes and prevention has warned that the so-called birth control pill is “the largest unregulated human trial that’s ever been conducted.”

Dr. Sam Epstein, author of Cancer-Gate: How to Win the Losing Cancer War and Professor of Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the School of Public Health, University of Illinois at Chicago, told the CBC’s Marketplace that exposure to the hormones estrogen and progestin, as found in the pill, increase breast cancer risk.

Marketplace author Wendy Mesley, herself a breast cancer survivor, explained that the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer last year re-classified hormonal contraceptives as carcinogenic to humans.

Dr. Chris Kahlenborn, M.D. demonstrated that a woman who takes birth control pills before her first child is born has at least a 40 percent increased risk of developing breast cancer and a woman who has taken the pill for four or more years prior to the birth of her first child has a 72 percent risk factor in developing breast cancer. Dr. Kahlenborn’s book, “Breast cancer: Its link to abortion and the birth control pill,” published by One More Soul, is based on six years of study and a meticulous analysis of hundreds of scientific papers and other sources.

A European study, which looked at 103,000 women aged between 30 and 49 in Norway and Sweden found the risk of developing breast cancer rose by 26% for women who had taken the pill over those who had never used it. Moreover, women who had used the pill for long periods of time increased their risk of breast cancer by 58%. The study also found that women over 45 still using the pill had an increased risk of 144%.

The British Medical Journal revealed that the pill increases a woman’s risk of developing cerebrovascular disease by 1.9 times while increasing the tendency to cervical cancer by 2.5 times. The 25 year follow-up study with 46,000 British women also noted that the enhanced risk of death lasts for 10 years after women have stopped taking the pill.

I’ve just started chapter six and I’m blown away by the things he is saying. Stop taking prescription drugs because it’s killing us. I’m not sure if I believe all of it but some of what he is saying really hits home based on my personal experience.

I mention bits and pieces from the book to my dad and he tells me the story of a recent news program where a reporter was diagnosed with breast cancer. She wasn’t a smoker, lived a healthy life and was careful with her diet. She was determined to find out the cause and after doing a lot of research, the only thing that stood out was the birth control pill. After researching the medication, she discovered that the type of pill she was taking could cause breast cancer if taken longer than five years. She took it for seven years and was mad that there was no warning on the label. NO KIDDING!!

I come across an article in the Washington Post that details of the criminal past of Kevin Trudeau.

Credit-card fraud and larceny he committed in his twenties. Pleaded guilty to depositing $80,000 in worthless checks. Pleaded guilty to obtaining and fraudulently using 11 credit cards and served close to two years in federal prison. Trudeau also misappropriated for his own use credit card numbers belonging to customers.

In prison on the West Coast, Trudeau hooked up with a fellow inmate named Jules Leib, who was in for attempted distribution of cocaine. He gave Leib some self-help books. When they got out, they went into business together, making infomercials and selling health products as distributors for an Amway-type multilevel marketing company called Nutrition for Life. Right away the trouble started.

David Bertrand, the former president of Nutrition for Life, remembers Trudeau listening to motivational tapes “incessantly.” He says Trudeau was “brilliant” and “one of the best salespeople I’ve ever known,” and recalls that in 1996 the company nearly tripled its sales in large part because of Trudeau. The man could sell because he seemed to really believe in what he was saying, Bertrand says, but he repeatedly took it too far.

Bertrand says he became concerned that Trudeau was making overly optimistic promises to potential distributors about how much profit they could make. “We had a number of conferences where we asked him to cool it,” Bertrand says. “It scared us.” At one point, Bertrand says, he learned that Trudeau had promised free trips to entice people to sign up as distributors. The trips never materialized, there were complaints, and Nutrition for Life had to step in, says Bertrand, and fund a weekend cruise for thousands of people. “At the time he made the promise he fully intended to comply,” Bertrand says. “He always intends to but he kind of gets carried away in his exuberance.”

In 1996, the state of Illinois sued Trudeau and Leib, accusing them of operating an illegal pyramid scheme.

In 1998, Trudeau paid half a million dollars to settle a Federal Trade Commission complaint that several infomercials he helped create were false and misleading.

In 2003, the FTC came after Trudeau again. The complaint and a separate contempt action centered on two products, one of which, Coral Calcium Supreme, was being billed as a cure for cancer, according to the FTC. Trudeau’s guest on the infomercial, a man named Robert Barefoot, went so far as to claim that in cultures that consume a lot of calcium, people are so healthy “they don’t even have children until they’re in their seventies when they’re mature enough to handle kids.”

Trouble in paradise…Kevin Trudeau may have a criminal past, and he may have taken my twenty seven dollars…but I do know one thing… he’s right about a lot of things and it makes a lot of sense.

He says electromagnetic waves can make us sick and I believe him. Every major illness today is not caused by bacteria or viruses, they are developed within the body. He says they are self-inflicted illnesses and doctors are only trained to treat the symptoms and not find out the root cause of the problem. You can treat the body when it has a fever but what caused the fever in the first place?
