Many wonder whether or not hormones are the cause of cancer. The short answer is, no.
To get started, watch the following video and then keep reading:
Cancer And The Role of Hormones
Hormones are indeed involved in certain types of cancer. However, the correct approach is to understand why hormones are contributing to the disease in the first place.
Toxins disrupt hormones. Research indicates that very few of our grandparents developed cancer. Nowadays, cancer is a common disease that people of all ages and backgrounds have to face. Furthermore, hormones have not changed, but the number of toxins that impact our hormones has increased exponentially. For example, the agricultural industry uses various chemicals on crops, such as pesticides, insecticides, fungicides, as well as fertilizers and sprays. Our food and water supply contain compounds that have increased the number of toxins within the environment.
A Different World
Did you know that in North America alone, there are more than 3,000 chemicals added to our food supply? Also, there the more than 10,000 chemicals in the form of solvents, emulsifiers, as well as preservatives used in food processing, packaging, wrapping, and storage. The EPA estimates there are more than 20,000 chemicals that our bodies cannot metabolize, and because of this are stored in the fat cells throughout our bodies. The result? Hormone disorders and imbalances.
Our environment exposes us to dangerous xenoestrogens (Xeno meaning “foreign) from the chemical estrogens all around us. Things like herbicides, pesticides, amalgam (silver) teeth fillings, antiperspirants and certain types of plastics, to name just a few, are the culprits. These chemicals disrupt the regular activity of our hormones.
What We Do At The Budwig Center
Amalgam fillings cause us untold damage because they mimic and stimulate estrogen production. At the Budwig Cancer Center, we work with a local biological dentist who replaces amalgam fillings with natural compounds.
So, in conclusion, hormones themselves are not the cause of cancer, but rather, its hormones that have been disrupted by toxins which are a major contributing factor to the disease. Fortunately, the Budwig protocol effectively addresses this issue because it focuses on the cause of cancer and thus can help to reverse the disease.
