Breast Cancer and Pesticides

July 19, 2015

Naturopathic physicians are often ridiculed for their frequent emphasis on detoxification therapies. At Immersion Health virtually every patient will be advised to do one or more detoxification therapies.

 

A recent study of women with a common form of breast cancer, invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), strongly supports the need to make detoxification therapies a priority.

 

In this study, levels of common organochloride pesticide residue was measured in the breast tissue of women diagnosed with IDC and also in the breast tissue of women without cancer.

 

Pesticide residue was higher in the breast tissue of the women with cancer than in women without. But that's not all they found. The higher the concentration of pesticides in the breast tissue, the more aggressive the cancer, i.e. higher pesticide concentration correlated with higher grade cancer.

 

The conventional argument against detox therapies is that our bodies are already have detoxification processes in place, so there is no need to do more. In fact, many claim that the therapies are purely scams.

 

But here's the thing: these detoxification processes evolved over eons, oceans of time that did not include, for instance, synthetic pesticides. In the past 70 years our exposure to chemicals has increased exponentially. The presence of these organochloride pesticides in breast tissue is evidence of the fact that our bodies are not adequately detoxifying these chemicals as they enter our bodies.

 

Detoxification therapies are central to every cancer treatment program we implement. In fact, everyone living in this modern world should engage in periodic practices to facilitate detoxification of these chemicals. The question is not whether we are exposed to these chemicals. The question is how readily we are detoxifying them.
