It is commonly understood that one in three people, if they live to be 90, will develop cancer. However, there is a lot in between that you may not know about.

I have studied about breast and prostate cancer for many years because of their similar epidemiology and their common causation. A recent paper in the Journal of Urology presented new data which emphasizes what I have been alerting you to over the last few years.

Would you begin to think differently if I told you that autopsy studies of men who died of causes other than cancer revealed the presence of prostate cancer in 10% of men in their 20’s, 31% of men in their 30’s, 40% of men in their 40’s and 70% of men in their 60’s?

The incidence of cancer of the breast was similar, 40% of women in their 40’s had the presence of cancer. All of these cancers are what is called ‘latent’ or undiscovered. .

As these figures are so much higher than what manifests as clinical cancer, there is only one conclusion. These latent cancers may never grow large enough to create problems unless discovered by accident.

What factors determine whether we develop clinical cancer if almost all of us have latent cancer in our bodies? Herein lies the principle of individual susceptibility which is based on our genetics, biochemical individuality, nutrition, toxic load and past medical history.

This latency information shows us we don’t have to suffer from clinical cancer, but can be protected if we know what to do. I have been saying for several years, “cancer is preventable, but you have to know how”.

Our Breast Thermography Program takes advantage of this latency phenomenon. Thermograms most often show something abnormal 6-10 years before any other available technology can detect the abnormality. This long latency period gives us the opportunity to reverse or arrest the small locus of abnormal cells that represents latent cancer.

We have converted or arrested these abnormalities, recognized by thermograms,again and again. How did we do it you might ask? We researched nutritional supplementation and incorporated the highest quality and most important supplements into our Women’s Breast Health Formula. Science doesn’t stand still and neither do we. We keep learning and updating the formula, making it even more effective in arresting cancers.

Conventional medicine kept telling our patients there was nothing there, but we knew differently. The new research confirms that by the age of 40, 4 out of every 10 women have latent cancer of the breast waiting for the opportunity to become clinical. We know that the average clinical cancer has a life cycle that from the first cluster of abnormal cells till the death of the patient averages about 15 years

When you have a thermogram rated a TH3, you have most likely found a cluster of latent cancer cells. They may do absolutely nothing for the rest of your life, or they may grow into an invasive clinical cancer. Why wait for that to happen when you can prevent it by proper nutrition? We know you can reduce your risk of breast cancer by about 84% by simply raising your Vitamin D3 level to assure a level of 50-70ng/ml. If you can do that with breast cancer, you can do the same for prostate cancer.

So this alert is appealing to you to take enough Vitamin D3 to assure a blood level of 50ng. We have varying doses of Vitamin D3: 1,000 I.U., 2,000 I.U., 5,000 I.U. and 50,000 I.U. I recommend that you start with 5,000 I.U. daily, then measure your blood level a month later and increase or decrease your dosage accordingly.

If you are close to the office, you can have your blood drawn here, or if at a distance, we will arrange to have your blood drawn at a Lab Corps laboratory near you.

You don’t have to fear getting a thermogram of your breasts. Routine exams can give you 6-10 years of lead time to reverse any abnormalities, and it’s done without compression or radiation.

Schedule your annual thermogram by calling our office at (843)572-1600.

If you are in need, the Center offers Vitamin D3 5,000 I.U. in bottles of 100 capsules for $7.50. Your health is very precious- take care of it.
