Facts about Breast Cancer.
Studies have found more than 200 synthetic chemicals in human breast milk. It is a well-documented fact that many chemicals accumulate in body fat and remain in breast tissues for decades. Studies show that all women carry persistent pollutants in their blood, breasts and other fatty tissues.
Fact # 1 All women are at risk. Approximately 70% of breast cancers occur in women with none of the known risk factors.
Fact # 2 Only about 5% of breast cancers are inherited. About 80% of women diagnosed with breast cancer will be the first
to be victims in their families.
Fact # 3 Early detection does NOT prevent breast cancer. Avoiding and eliminating known causes will prevent breast cancer!
Fact # 4 Mammography fails to detect as much as 20% of all breast cancer and as much as 40% in women under the age of 50.
Fact # 5 One out of four who are diagnosed with breast cancer die within the first five years.
No less than 40% die within ten years.
Fact # 6 Risk factors are not necessarily causes of breast cancer. Enough evidence exist linking environmental pollution
and contamination to cause breast cancer.
Fact # 7 The global incidence of breast cancer has tremendously risen by 256% the past 30 years with Southeast Asia
increasing by 479%! And the supposed authorities and experts that should know, don’t know why.
Fact # 8 Breast cancer is the leading killer of women ages 35 to 54 worldwide. More than a million women develop breast cancer
without knowing it and almost 500,000 die from it every year.
Fact # 9 1 out of 13 Filipno women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
The province of Pampanga has the highest incidence rate in the entire country.
Fact # 10 The Philippines has the highest incidence rate of breast cancer in Asia and registered the highest increase of 589%
among 187 countries over a 30 year period from 1980 to 2010.
We are asking for your help and support to raise funds for our colleague, Alma Suguitan of team 15, whose mother is suffering from breast cancer. She’ s the only one supporting her mom for medication and it would really help if you drop any amount in those small boxes that you can find in the guard’s station. Breast cancer is still life-threatening, and until we can keep people from dying from it, we need your help – your generosity is crucial as we help our colleague & her mom.
Thank you kaayo mga gwapa ug gwapo.
