BPA makes breast cancer tumors resistant to chemotherapy


Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) The sudden diagnosis of cancer, the realization of its presence within, sends a cold paralysis through the mind, down the spine. The presence of cancer does not always mean that the end is imminent; instead, it can serve as an important message to the entire person, signaling for a new course in life.

The diagnosis of new-found cancer cells can immediately burden one's emotions with grief and stress. At this emotional juncture, it's important to turn the pressure around and begin thanking the cancer for serving as a warning message. Cancer can be a message to a person that the body is under stress, that the cellular environment within is in a state of acidosis and has become an ideal place for fungus to thrive. The cancer is a warning bell tolling on the inside, messaging that the cells are not being properly cared for, that the immune system is weak, that nutrients aren't being properly utilized and that the cells are swelling and not producing adequate energy.

To a typical allopathic oncologist, cancer is not the body communicating its deprived state. Many doctors will put a death sentence in a patient's mind, numbering their days. To them, cancer is a sudden and overwhelming attack. They think that it's inescapable, and that it must be immediately cut out, radiated or doused in chemotherapy cocktails -- procedures that show little to no mercy for a patient. These approaches are oftentimes desperate and do not look at underlying causes and co-factors that have compromised the body's normal function and energy production of cells.

BPA exposure empowers some cancer cells, makes chemotherapy worthless

Something as overlooked as bisphenol A could be a major player in most cancers. As a hormone disrupter, BPA inhibits the proper utilization of nutrients in important glands that regulate body functions. This can stress the cells. BPA is in many plastics and can leach from plastic bottles into the liquid, delivering BPA particles into the body.

A new study from Duke University has found that bisphenol A helps some breast cancer cells grow and can even make some cancer cells resistant to modern chemotherapy.

In the Duke study, inflammatory breast cancer cells were found to be resistant to prescription chemotherapy drugs when BPA was present. The plastic chemicals rendered the drugs worthless, allowing the cancer cells to continue growing.

That's not all. The researchers found that BPA may be one of the underlying forces causing the growth of cancer cells in the first place.

At least 5 million pounds of BPA is pumped into US manufactures every year. Humanity's greatest exposure is through plastic bottles.

Co-author Scott Sauer says, "Even though it does seem like they're starting to phase out some BPA, almost everyone in developed countries has BPA circulating in their body and are constantly being exposed to it."

Chemotherapy suppresses the immune system

Instead of detoxifying the patient of cellular disrupters like BPA, typical oncologists head straight for treatments like chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a cocktail of chemical agents used to kill cells that divide rapidly. This may be effective for knocking out some cancer cells, but it also wipes out cells of the digestive tract, the bone marrow and the hair follicles. As the body's blood cells are killed off during chemotherapy treatments, the immune system becomes suppressed further, welcoming secondary cancers.

According to the Duke study, when chemotherapy is used in the presence of BPA in certain inflammatory breast cancers, it's like there's a war going on in the body -- plastic chemicals battling chemical cocktail medicines.

Like any war, neither side wins. Both opponents are made more aggressive, and the person becomes the victim as the cancer overtakes.

Speaking of war, chemotherapy is derived from chemicals similar to mustard gas. Mustard gas is a wartime chemical. Like modern-day chemotherapy drugs, mustard gas is also a potent suppressor of blood production and immune system function, stopping cellular division. In 1942, the first trials of nitrogen mustard compounds were given to lymphoma patients.

Chemotherapy is like using chemical warfare inside the body. While sometimes effective at first, the chemical warfare doesn't deal with the root causes of cancer, ultimately suppressing the immune system further.

This study shows that the problem is not the cancer. The problem may consist of plastic chemicals like BPA taking their toll on the cells.
