Mammograms do not prevent cancer. Early detection does not prevent breast cancer; in fact, both may contribute to it. Treatments don’t cure and cause “resulting effects”, including more cancer. Are we really survivors, or are we just women who have gotten through treatment? Sadly, we are encouraged to walk and wave banners, to join in the masses donating to end breast cancer. Here on Survive and Live Well, we talk about treating and beating cancer……what better way to beat it than to prevent it. We can do our best to prevent cancer through diet and lifestyle choices; sadly, it often takes more, and sadly, much of what is required is too expensive or unavailable to most. We need a vaccine. Join us Tuesday, October 2nd on Survive and Live Well, the internet radio show for cancer, when I will chat with Dr Kathleen Ruddy as she clarifies the efficacy and potential of the first ever breast cancer vaccine and talks about the three different types of breast cancer, the genetic profiles that appear to distinguish them, and how this information can be used to tailor treatment.
You can listen live, Tuesday, October 2nd at 1pm EST, on www.W4CS.com. Have questions or want to join in the conversation? Join us in the chat room!
