Have We Blamed the Wrong Culprit for Lung Cancer?
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
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 act...to 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
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
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!
Japanese smoking/lung cancer paradox" is hereby solved through a scientific
understanding of the one true lung cancer foundation.
