Why Are U.S. Breast Cancer Rates Out of Control?

In the US, breast cancer rates are out of control. Presently, one in seven US women suffer from breast cancer.

In 2019, an estimated 268,600 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.

Think about those numbers: One in seven and nearly 270,000 women diagnosed with invasive cancer—THIS YEAR!   Those numbers are unacceptable, or at least they should be!

What are the Powers-That-Be doing to stem this tide? The answer: They are too busy diagnosing and treating and are not properly searching for the underlying cause of why too many US women suffer with breast cancer.

We are exposed to too many synthetic hormones which can disrupt the normal hormonal milieu. Women are prescribed synthetic hormones in birth control pills and conventional hormonal replacement therapy which have been conclusively shown to increase the risk for breast cancer.

Iodine deficiency is one of the main reasons we are seeing so much breast cancer. I have been writing and lecturing about iodine for almost 20 years. Iodine levels in the US have fallen over 50% during the last 40 years while at the same time breast cancer rates have risen to epidemic levels.
