Have We Blamed the Wrong Culprit for Lung Cancer?

Japanese men over age 50 have an extremely low rate of lung cancer when compared to the percentage of males in the same age demographic diagnosed with lung cancer in the United States.

Scientists call this "The Japanese smoking/lung cancer paradox."

On September 8, 2009, the journal Cancer Research identified IGF-I and the IGF-I receptor as keys to understanding lung cancer growth. Researchers  conclude:

"IGFs enhance lung carcinogenesis. ..the use of selective IGF inhibitors may be a rational approach to controlling lung cancer."

Everybody "knows" that smoking causes lung cancer, but those same everybodys also ignore the "missing link" which answers that paradox.

Japanese males born before 1960 drank very little milk. Japanese males born before 1950 drank no milk at all. Dairy products were just not a part of the Japanese culture as it is in the United States.

Cow's milk contains insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I), a growth hormone identified as the key factor in the proliferation of every case of lung cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. For scientific support,

In Japan, every year since 1946, tens-of thousands of persons have been interviewed and their diets carefully analyzed along with their weights and heights and other factors such as cancer rates.

In 1975, 21,707 persons from 6,093 Japanese households were included in the sampling. The results of the study were published in a respected scientific journal, Preventive Medicine (Yasuo Kagawa, Department of Biochemistry, Jichi Medical School, Japan, 7, 205-217, 1978).

According to the Preventive Medicine study, per-capita yearly dietary intake of dairy products in 1950 was only 5.5 pounds. Twenty-five years later the average Japanese ate 117.4 pounds of milk and dairy products per year.

While milk and dairy consumption increased by twenty-one times from 1950 to 1975, breast cancer rates increased 77 percent. Colon cancer increased 77 percent. Lung cancer increased by three hundred percent.

All of the wasted millions of dollars donated to various research foundations supporting the dosing of laboratory mice and rats with cigarette smoke...what a waste!

The "The Japanese smoking/lung cancer paradox" is hereby solved through a scientific understanding of the one true lung cancer foundation.
