ROOT weekly report by Dr. Christina Rahm - breast cancer

Breast cancer

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, I would like to share in this Rahm Report the symptoms and risk factors of breast cancer and how Root can help the body prevent breast cancer.

The prevalence of breast cancer is increasing in the United States. The risk of developing breast cancer increases with age. About two out of three invasive breast cancers are diagnosed in women over 55 years of age. It is estimated that over 30,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in 2020. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the second leading cause of cancer death. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 1 in 8 women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. In 2020, an estimated 2,620 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 480 men will die from the disease. Although breast cancer is much more common in women, men's risk of dying from breast cancer is about three times that of women.

There are a variety of risk factors for developing breast cancer, including family history, older age, genetic factors, obesity, alcohol exposure, radiation exposure, and exposure to heavy metals/toxins. I would like to go into more detail about heavy metal pollution. Heavy metals promote the progression of breast cancer through various pathogenic compounds and reduce its sensitivity to treatment. Some of these metals, such as cadmium and mercury, are known to be toxic to the human body. Others, such as copper and nickel, can disrupt hormone balance and others, such as lead and aluminum, can damage DNA. A study published in the journal Breast Cancer Research and Treatment found that women with high levels of cadmium in their blood were more likely to develop breast cancer than women with lower levels of this metal. In another study, copper, cobalt, nickel, lead, mercury, tin and chromium(II) were found to stimulate the proliferation of estrogen-dependent breast cancer cells by increasing the transcription and expression of estrogen-regulated genes.

This is where Root's Clean Slate comes into play. Clean Slate is specifically designed to safely and effectively remove these heavy metals from the body. As Clean Slate passes through the body, it binds to these heavy metals and other toxins, allowing for passive elimination from the body via urine. This is thanks to nature's strongest volcanic mineral in combination with other trace elements and a high dose of vitamin C. Vitamin C is also a very powerful heavy metal remover. One study found that a high dose of vitamin C given to rats accelerated the removal of lead from the body. I know that Clean Slate has changed my life (and I know many of you who use it can attest to this too), and I can walk around knowing that my system is ridding itself of these destructive toxins.

If you are wondering about the symptoms of breast cancer or have a family history of breast cancer, you should pay attention to these symptoms and go to the doctor immediately if you notice any of them: swelling of all or part of the breast, dimpling of the skin, breast pain or the nipples, retraction of the nipples, red, dry, flaky or thickened skin on the nipples or in the breasts, discharge from the nipples and swollen lymph nodes under the arm or near the collarbone.

This report is not intended to alarm, but rather to draw attention to a cancer that is becoming increasingly common. We must be diligent and smart and try to prevent certain age-related diseases and take care of our bodies... always. Because if you can reduce your risk, why shouldn't you?

With light and love,

Dr. Christina Rahm
