A new study finds that most early-stage breast cancer patients can safely skip chemotherapy. Dr. Stephanie Bernik, chief of surgical oncology at Lenox Hill Hospital, joins CBSN to discuss.

Keep it SIMPLE
CHEMO is NOT what anyone should do at all

Sack the BBC and those in British railways who worked with a government scientist to inflict deliberately szchophrenia and practiced torture.What kind of medical professionals would let the British government inflict torture with a szchophrenia weapon .Its called the NHS.The British television industry using subliminal messages to inflict psychosis in the viewer who has already been inflicted by manufactured szchophrenia not the brain disease.Dump and sack the BBC for It. And channel 3,4,5 for helping to inflict psychological torture.Sack the British Ofcom who regulate television in the UK.When this evil human rights crime ends,the tortured railway worker will leave for they helped inflict szchophrenia in him and stole his human rights to family to a life without torture.They have no chance in being forgiven for their vile crime.The police using a torture weapon to inflict szchophrenia on a man on the railways and steal his human rights.Dump the British.

Colon cancer is on the rise and that is PROOF that GMO foods are bad for us.

Breast cancer is caused by Jewish toxins in our soap and food!

There are so many implicit I n the suppression of life saving cures for cancers in the u.s. it's becoming obvious who has the credibility and who's industry is ready to collapse.

Funny how diet and key supplements are glossed over as if they don't exist…. for example, diindolylmethane, extract of cruciferous vegetables. You can buy it all day long on Amazon and reputable health food stores everywhere.

Chemopreventive properties of 3,3′-diindolylmethane in breast cancer: evidence from experimental and human studies

Abstract

Diet is a modifiable factor associated with the risk of several cancers, with convincing evidence showing a link between diet and breast cancer. The role of bioactive compounds of food origin, including those found in cruciferous vegetables, is an active area of research in cancer chemoprevention. This review focuses on 3,3′-diindolylmethane (DIM), the major bioactive indole in crucifers. Research of the cancer-preventive activity of DIM has yielded basic mechanistic, animal, and human trial data. Further, this body of evidence is largely supported by observational studies. Bioactive DIM has demonstrated chemopreventive activity in all stages of breast cancer carcinogenesis. This review describes current evidence related to the metabolism and mechanisms of DIM involved in the prevention of breast cancer. Importantly, this review also focuses on current evidence from human observational and intervention trials that have contributed to a greater understanding of exposure estimates that will inform recommendations for DIM intake.
Keywords: breast cancer chemoprevention, 3-3′-diindolylmethane, glucosinolates.
INTRODUCTION

Cruciferous vegetables have been shown to be protective against breast cancer in some,1–8 but not all,9–11 epidemiological studies. Discrepancies in current findings are thought to be explained in part by variances in exposure to multiple bioactive constituents found in this unique classification of vegetables. In fact, the chemopreventive roles of multiple phytochemicals found in crucifers have been described previously.12 The argument for the focus on one bioactive constituent in particular, 3,3′-diindolylmethane (DIM), as a relevant bioactive food compound in breast cancer chemoprevention is based on the extensive evaluation of DIM in relation to its chemopreventive potential, particularly for breast cancer. DIM is one of the best-characterized and most abundant bioactive compounds found in commonly consumed crucifers. The purpose of this review is to describe the metabolism of DIM, the mechanisms of action of DIM against breast cancer, and the current state of human observational and intervention trials with DIM to introduce the next steps toward advancing understanding and developing guidance on DIM intake for public health.
METABOLISM OF DIINDOLYLMETHANE FROM INDOLE-3-CARBINOL

DIM is readily metabolized in cruciferous vegetables (Figure 1). Cruciferous vegetables are within the mustard family, or the family Brassicaceae (Cruciferae). Commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, bok choy, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, Brussels sprouts, and kohlrabi. Once consumed, bioactive constituents are rapidly metabolized into several intermediate and end products. The bioactive content and end products vary and are dependent on the specific vegetable consumed. Other factors that influence DIM content in cruciferous vegetables include plant age, cultivar, and vegetable storage and preparation methods.13,14 The spectrum of effects from cooking and storage on DIM concentrations remains relatively unknown and warrants further exploration.

People who know better, people who present a threat to the multi billion dollar cancer industry, people who are still alive to tell their stories are unwelcome in the discussion and that's a shame.

Episode 188: She Successfully Treated Her 3 Different Cancers With Cannabis Oil

http://www.healthy-food-house.com/50-year-old-man-cures-lung-cancer-cannabis-oil-stuns-cbs-news/
Darren Miller is one of those people who have used this oil to cure his ‘incurable’ lung cancer, and managed to survive, and live against the odds.
Initially, after his diagnosis, doctors informed him that he had a year to live, as he suffered from ‘inoperable incurable’ lung cancer.
His treatment included chemotherapy, but he decided to also try his chances using cannabis oil, as he has read numerous success stories about its potential.
Survival rates for lung cancer are incredibly low, with stage IA cancer survival rate at 50%, and for stage IV, only 1% of the patients manage to survive.
Darren decided to move to California with his wife in order to be able to legally try the cannabis oil treatment.
Only after 7 months, his cancer was gone! In an interview for the CBS News, he said:
“Today, which is seven months later, they tell me I am completely cancer-free – not remission. I’ve cured my cancer. Now, am I giving credit to the cannabis oil? Absolutely. Am I giving credit to chemo? I would have to say yes, too. I did both.”
His successful story made him want to help others in the similar position and set up his own cannabis oil treatment.

An interview between Werner Bruining of http://www.mediwiet.nl and a patient who was diagnosed with prostate cancer. In the interview the patient describes how he used cannabis oil to combat his prostate cancer. For personal reasons, this patient refused surgery and opted for THC-containing cannabis oil instead. The patient has recently been diagnosed cancer free, suggesting cannabis oil actually cured cancer in this case.

Brooks Palmer says:

Intentional inclusion by corporations governments and organizations of things like endocrine disrupting chemicals & hormones (food water air etc) & EMF radiation are intended to increase the risks of cancer in everyone. These are assuredly a significantly greater risk factor than any hereditary risk factor. Diet nutrition exercise detoxify.

David Rodgers says:

Breast cancer is practically unheard of in China. It's a proven fact American women ingest more animal fats in their diet that cause breast cancer.

The only reason people use still use chemo is because doctors make money ogf of it and thats a fact no matter what any liberal lunatic thinks

RussiaNukesAmerica3 says:

Not being facetious or cruel but it would probably be best for ' white ' females in America to simply die off from breast cancer because ' God ' will destroy America and ' white ' females will be " ravished ", ( raped ) it's called ' God's ' judgement.

Chemotherapy makes pharmaceutical companies Mucho Dinero. They knew that it didn't help for a long time.

Cancer patients never needed chemotherapy! Marijuana is the true medicine for cancer! Worthless medical community!

TheDesert IsPatient says:

“Early Stage”, and those w/ an estrogen marker node-neg is what is being referred to here. These may not get chemo but may go on to get tamoxifen hormone therapy. It would be helpful if the doctor fully explained the meaning of the study. These women may not get chemo, but they wiill get about 6 weeks of radiation therapy which may have its own morbidity.
