According to WHO (World Health Organization) breast cancer is the most common cancer in worldwide. Breast cancer is most commonly diagnosed in young women. It is the second leading cause of death among women. Hundreds of thousands of women affecting countries in all levels of modernization are claiming the lives.
No one sure for causes, which are the contributors for growth of the cancer in breast and any other part of the body. Cancer research UK reports that, women under the age of 50 are being diagnosed with breast cancer.
This year JAMA study published, found young women, age of 25-39 years being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer.
Toxic Insults and Nutritional Deficiencies
There are primary causes where women are exposes to breast cancer such as nutritional deficiencies, Exposure to environmental toxicity, inflammation, estrogen dominance and immune surveillance.
Girls who have received radiation to the chest to treat childhood cancer, they have more risk of developing breast cancer at a young age. Even those who are received low doses of cancer treatment, have more risk of breast cancer.
Now day’s women are still urged to get annual mammogram starting at the age of 40. Mammography is ionizing radiation that may actually increase the risk of breast cancer. As per 2010 study, annual screening of mammography on women age group 40-80 years is associated with an induced breast cancer. And now days “new and improved” 3 D Tomosynthesis mammogram will be caused more radiation for women if they are exposed for it.
Parabens is a chemical, which having properties like estrogen. Estrogen is one of the hormone which involved in the development of the breast cancer. Parabens are used in personal care products such as shampoo, body lotion, deodorant, shaving gel and cosmetics. These chemicals have been detected in breast cancer tissues at concentrations upto 1 million times higher than the estrogen or estrodiol. Because these products are persistent daily use. An exposure of these chemicals often begins as early as in the womb.
Milk is Another Hiding Risk for Breast Cancer
Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (RBGH) is a synthetic version of natural Bovine Somato Tropin (BST). Bovine somato tropin hormone produced in cows’ pituitary glands. RBGH milk contains increased level of Insulin Growth Factor – 1 (IGF-1).
Insulin Growth Factor-1 regulates the cell growth, cell division and it has an ability of spread cancer cells to distant organs. Insulin growth factor-1 has potent growth-stimulating effects human breast tissue, especially in the presence of estradiol, a form of estrogen. This factor is “catalysts” for the transformation of normal breast tissue into breast cancer tissue.
One study showed that premenopausal women who have elevated IGF-1 level had develops breast cancer and another research study showed, women younger than 35 age group have elevated IGF-1, more aggressive for breast cancer.
Healthy cells are the basic building blocks of tissues and organs in our body. But sometimes cell damaged and cell DNA also get damaged, which we can say , cell’s wiring. Damaged cells begin to reproduced mutated cell rapidly without following proper channel. Cell starts to grow aggressively, which can be formed a tumor or mass of tissue. It does not functions as normally and these abnormal growth of cell or tissue can be progressed into the diseases. If it develops into the breast then it can be breast cancer or other part of the body then we can identified with other name.
Growth of Cells
The growth of the cancer cell is often fuelled with the normally healthy three chemicals of the body, such as estrogen, progesterone and HER2/neu gene (growth hormone). These chemicals helps to grow cancerous cells in the body.
HER2 hormone are the proteins which helps to manage growth of the breast cells, it’s division and repairs itself. When this hormones does not function properly then it starts to make an excess number of copies. This process is known as “HER2 gene amplification”. These extra genes are instructed to cells to make too many HER2 receptors, which is called, “HER2 protein over expression”. And the breast cells grows and divide in a uncontrolled fashion.
