Scaring Women to Death

"I have a zero tolerance for sanctimonious  morons who try to scare people."
- Pat Robertson

It was 4:56 AM on Thursday morning (January 16) when I half-watched the morning news on CBS television in New York. The commercial came on and a voiceover got my full attention by asking over a pink screen containing stick figure animations:

"Wouldn't YOUR (emphasis added) friend with breast cancer walk to save YOUR life?" The entire process by which a billion unspent dollars now sit in investment vehicles for Komen continues to offend me. Those who walk the walks are fed yogurt donated by major sponsors; yogurt containing the key factor in the growth and proliferation of every case of breast cancer that has ever grown in every affected woman.

Susan Komen organization insiders find that scaring women results in great rewards for its insiders. In 2012, founder Nancy Brinker paid herself salary of $548,700. This year, she is taking time off to plan global strategy, and will take a $158,000 salary cut while paying the organization's president, Judith Salerno, a salary of $475,000.

The cure for breast cancer would end Komen's cash cow.

The January, 2014 issue of Stem Cell Reports includes A study performed in China, France, and the United States on breast cancer growth and proliferation. Scientists concluded that breast cancer stem cells are immune to chemotherapy and radiation, and assist in breast cancer growth and proliferation by a methodology which:

"...Endows these cells with the capacity for tissue invasion, dissemination, and growth at metastatic sites."

Three months before the Stem Cell Reports publication highlighting today's column (October 2, 2013), Notmilk wrote:

"When a cancer is destroyed by various methods, including chemotherapy or radiation, the stems cells survive and remain as future 'seeds' to re-grow the existing or other future cancers."

The solution?

There is a phytochemical in kale (zeaxanthin) which prevents breast cancer stem cells from growing. Just as researchers recommend that lycopenes in tomatoes are better utilized by humans when heated, so too are these plant sterols more effectively utilized by cooking, rather than be eating or juicing raw kale. Most people enjoy steamed kale with a touch of sea salt.

The pill? Dark-green leafy kale, found in supermarkets everywhere!

Rather than reveal the truth regarding the etiology of breast cancer, women have been virtually scared to death by professionals hired by the dairy industry to market milk and cheese.

Scared to death by fears that osteoporosis will weaken their bones unless they consume dairy products.

Scared to death by articles in women's magazines that are payback (one hand washed another) as the dairy industry's reward for multi-million dollar milk mustache campaigns.

Scared to death by an enormous lie. Truth is, nations with the highest rates of bone disease are the ones listening to dairy-sponsored propaganda. For the truth about osteoporosis, see:

Many of these scared-to-death women are then scared directly to their own dairy-induced breast cancer deaths.

According to the National Alliance for Breast Cancer Organizations (, 200,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year.

Many organizations sponsor walks or races for the "cure" (Avon, Komen Foundation, etc.) while accepting sponsorship from those promoting the cause (milk and dairy producers).

Cows and humans share the same hormone, insulin-like growth factor, or IGF-1. This powerful growth hormone has been identified as a key factor in the growth of breast cancer. Each sip of milk contains that growth hormone.

Does Milk Cause Breast Cancer?

"Human Insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) and bovine IGF-I are identical. Both contain 70 amino acids in the identical sequence."

Judith C. Juskevich and C. Greg Guyer. SCIENCE, vol. 249. August 24, 1990. "IGF-I is critically involved in the aberrant growth of human breast cancer cells."

M. Lippman. J. Natl. Inst. Health Res., 1991, 3.

"IGF-I has been identified as a key factor in breast cancer."

Hankinson. The Lancet, vol. 351. May 9, 1998

"Serum IGF-I levels increased significantly in milk drinkers, an increase of about 10% above baseline but was unchanged in the control group."

Robert P. Heaney, Journal of the American Dietetic Association, vol. 99, no. 10. October 1999

"Death most resembles a prophet who is without  honor in his own land or a poet who is a  stranger among his people."
