Breast Cancer Soars Worldwide, Main Cause Censored

A report released today by the U.N. World Health Organization (WHO) shows that the rate of breast cancer increased 14% in the past four years but with massively higher increases in developing nations that have abandoned traditional child birth patterns in favor of contraception, sterilization, and abortion.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media is NOT reporting these well-documented, known principal causes of breast cancer.
"Breast cancer is also a leading cause of cancer death in the less developed countries of the world."

-- From "Cancer deaths rise to 8.2 million, breast cancer sharply up" by Kate Kelland, Reuters 12/12/13

. . . breast cancer killed 522,000 women last year . . . And 1.7 million women were newly diagnosed with breast cancer last year, up by more than 20 percent from 2008.

Projecting forward, IARC experts said they expected "a substantive increase" in cancer cases worldwide, with annual new cases predicted to rise to 19.3 million by 2025 as the global population both grows and ages.

Worldwide trends show that in developing countries going through rapid societal and economic change, the shift towards lifestyles more typical of richer industrialized countries leads to a rising burden of cancers linked to reproduction, diet and hormones.

From "WHO: Cancer on the Rise Worldwide" posted at Voice of America 12/12/13

The most commonly diagnosed cancers worldwide were those of the lung (1.8 million, 13 percent of the total), breast (1.7 million, 11.9 percent), and colorectal (1.4 million, 9.7 percent). . . .

Breast cancer continues to soar.

According to the WHO, in 2012, 1.7 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer, and there were 6.3 million women alive who had been diagnosed with the disease in the previous five years.

. . . Breast cancer is also the most common cause of cancer death among women and the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women in 140 of 184 countries worldwide. It now represents one in four of all cancers in women.

From "Latest world cancer statistics" press release by WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer 12/12/13

Generally, worldwide trends show that in developing countries going through rapid societal and economic changes, the shift towards lifestyles typical of industrialized countries leads to a rising burden of cancers associated with reproductive, dietary, and hormonal risk factors.

From "Breast cancer: prevention and control" posted at United Nations World Health Organization

Reproductive factors associated with prolonged exposure to endogenous estrogens, such as early menarche, late menopause, late age at first childbirth are among the most important risk factors for breast cancer. Exogenous hormones also exert a higher risk for breast cancer. Oral contraceptive and hormone replacement therapy users are at higher risk than non-users. Breastfeeding has a protective effect (IARC, 2008, Lacey et al., 2009).

The differences in breast cancer incidence between developed and developing countries can partly be explained by dietary effects combined with later first childbirth, lower parity, and shorter breastfeeding (Peto, 2001). The increasing adoption of western life-style in low- and middle-income countries is an important determinant in the increase of breast cancer incidence in these countries.

From "Age at first birth and breast cancer risk" a WHO Bulletin (posted at US National Library of Medicine - National Institutes of Health)

Abstract: An international collaborative study of breast cancer and reproductive experience has been carried out in 7 areas of the world. In all areas studied, a striking relation between age at first birth and breast cancer risk was observed. It is estimated that women having their first child when aged under 18 years have only about one-third the breast cancer risk of those whose first birth is delayed until the age of 35 years or more. Births after the first, even if they occur at an early age, have no, or very little, protective effect. The reduced risk of breast cancer in women having their first child at an early age explains the previously observed inverse relationship between total parity and breast cancer risk, since women having their first birth early tend to become ultimately of high parity. The association with age at first birth requires different kinds of etiological hypotheses from those that have been invoked in the past to explain the association between breast cancer risk and reproductive experience.

UPDATE 10/30/14: From "Scientific Review Urges Doctors to Inform Women of Abortion-Breast Cancer Link" by Karen Malec,

A second scientific review in 2014 has strongly urged physicians to warn patients about the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link before an abortion and argued the evidence for a cause-effect relationship is substantial.  A. Patrick Schneider and his colleagues authored the latest review entitled, “The breast cancer epidemic: 10 facts,” for the journal, The Linacre Quarterly.

Schneider’s team said, “…having more than one risk factor compounds the risk of breast cancer via synergistic mechanisms,” meaning the risk increase the woman incurs is greater than the sum of the risks for each of her risk factors. They explained:

“The strength of the breast cancer epidemiological evidence substantiates the necessity that all females receive full and accurate informed consent before they are provided hormones, induced abortion, or both. This informed consent is especially imperative for a girl (and parent/guardian) or a young woman, who is in the pre-FFTP (first full term pregnancy) breast cancer ‘susceptibility window.’  As a family history of breast cancer, of which the child may be unaware, increases the risk for the girl considering an abortion, the presence of a parent may provide clinical information critical to accurate informed consent.”

Schneider’s team cited “evidence of an emerging breast cancer pandemic.” Noting the words of Harvard’s Professor Brian MacMahon, the “founder of modern epidemiology,” who said “many of the prevalent forms of human cancer are preventable,” and citing his landmark research, they listed other ways women raise their risk: delay (or avoidance) childbearing, reduced duration (or avoidance) of breastfeeding.
