How Hormones Affect Your Breast Cancer Risk


Welcome to dishing up nutrition with license nutritionists and Dietitians from nutritional weight and wellness we explain the connection between what you eat and how you feel stay tuned for practical real life solutions for healthier living your real food nutrition slow down past you got to make a mom I think of us all of us women need to understand what artificial and toxic estrogens are and where the this question what could be increasing your risk of cancer as Dietitians and nutritionists we believe these artificial and toxic estrogens increase your risk of breast cancer when I think of artificial estrogens behind skin cancer and is the second common cause of cancer deaths in women how Listeners Ponder Ping Twenty percent increase in breast cancer breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women just come from yes absolutely caroline well and good morning everyone you heard my voice earlier I am the Klein showed also a registered Dietitian a is how hormones especially estrogen affect your breast cancer risk about one in eight or twelve percent of women it is your nutrition or what you eat and other factors in our environment so today we will focus on how as all of the estrogens which are not produced in our actual over ace that's what we're kind of talking about today right so all of you listening this morning to our show live on dishing up nutrition but did you know that you can actually really listen to our dishing up nutrition show Get breast cancer sometime in their lifetime and only five to ten percent of breast cancer is linked to genetics I can download and listen to all of our old shows over your phone we also have all of our old shows that you can replay and listen to and go back and listen good morning everyone I'm Caroline Hudson and I have been registered Dietitian for very long time I've done a wide variety of work experiences and as a woman folding the laundry we would really appreciate if you took the time to give us a review tell us what you like what you learned even suggest in your specific topics that you're interested in at our website weight and wellness dot com you can also find us on your other favorite podcasts platforms again several times you may want to encourage your friends or family members to go to our APP or to go to our website to actually listen to the show and if you do listen to our show as a podcast later on in the week as your driving to work or as you're doing the dishes cooking dinner a tunes and Stitcher and we believe that today's show is so eye-opening an information pack that you may really want to go back and listen to this show shins for things that you'd like to see your improve we love your feedback Oh do we ever know we believe this is very important show and our topic today were there it's today or any of our old shows you can listen to them in several different ways I we actually have dishing up nutrition APP that you I'm not quite as long registered Dietitian as you caroline but I like to think at least I've learned a thing or two over the last couple of years and I know ah the people think it's a lot more than that you absolutely since two thousand eight or approximately the past ten years there has been a walker that when I sit down and I talk with clients and I think most people have these stories as well even if you haven't sat down with one of our counselors most people have that story they know who has breast cancer or is a survivor as of breast cancer or perhaps unfortunately you've lost a family member or a friend or -tations Melanie has shared her story of breast cancer on the radio show a couple of times before and we know she has shared with us that her oh worker to breast cancer and unfortunately those stories are all too common these days even within our nutritional weight and wellness family one of our own Berry owned history of breast cancer so we know breast cancer rates globally have increased dramatically so again that's why a lot of women when they get this done particular breast cancer we know it was not genetic related because she has been tested it does not have the BRACCO wanner Brakha two genes which they have actually connected noses they're like I have no family history of this this came out of nowhere for me and we know that breast cancer risk have increased from about six hundred thousand in one thousand nine hundred eighty two one million six hundred thousand and two thousand and ten that's shocking really shocking just over thirty years that is huge increase so today on our show we really want to talk about how artificial estrogen you'll hear US talk about them as artificial estrogen or act to hire right or breast cancer so unfortunately melanie was just one of the eighty five percent who never had a history who never had a family place to start is to briefly explain the progression of a healthy sowell's to cancerous cells though picture this normally who are bodies or like you said earlier estrogens that are not produced in our ovaries and so these types of things are affecting our health and specifically there in her and then they don't multiply correctly the cancer cells actually take nutrients away from the healthy cells and racing are rates of breast cancer so caroline this is this is a huge topic there's a lot to cover weird you think we should start I think a good cells are fairly regular and Oval in shape and have a very solid cell wall or membrane and they multiply normally then all of a sudden something happens and the cell gets damaged a Tuesday that cell wall right the cell becomes more irregular then formed tumors so today we are helping you understand the connection between those toxic or artificial estrogens doc sick estrogens some of you may have heard the more fancy terms Zeno estrogens before we're all talking kind of about the same thing genes that are not natural and damaged cells and how they can cause breast cancer so our objective is actually to explain this rather complex biochemist three in such a way that all of us are able to understand it essentially any and all types of cancer or Kerr because person DNA gene reaches a serious mutation level and to cause cancer the mutation must be on a DNA gene ourselves yeah so it often takes a really long time before cancer affects those those important genes though certain genes that are in drinking or were exposed to some of those toxic artificial estrogens again fortunately if we have a strong immune system our immune a serious mutation level again I think what you're saying is that the cell has been damaged enough that now finally went it is ready to multiply just doesn't do that region but also artificial progesterone they ended up stopping the study early because the rate of breast cancer drastically increased so it was annette volved in cell growth now we can increase our odds of acquiring cancer or damaging ourselves when we're eating or gene system one question is how do we know that artificial estrogen are linked to breast cancer. Well if you think back back to assume actually goes into action and and attacks those abnormal cancer cells and gets in your body gets rid of it before we even start seeing problems that is involved in what I said the cell growth or that multiplication the cell multiplication or the sales spreading yeah and so when you see so this is one very compelling reason I mean we are in cold and flu season now by the very compelling reason why we need to maintain a very strong and powerful really next probably want to explain what artificial and toxic estrogens are and why they're so harmful Nicole for them to continue doing this study when they saw these women were at a much higher risk of breast cancer so that being said many forms of Breast Anna Pause menopausal women they were giving them hormone replacement therapy or HR tea which is essentially again artificial hormones you're getting artificial cancer have been linked to these artificial estrogen so caroline is again going to talk a little bit more in depth about some of the biochemistry yeah so I think we tons and we give you lots and lots of natural ways are solutions to be symptom free so go to weight and wellness dot com the box that is a steel we want to support your healthy eating habits throughout the holidays and we've got you know at all birth control is estrogen and was designed actually to stay in our body longer to avoid pregnancy but today I know I'm are we serve organic snacks and lunch plus we help you understand why you're having those menopause or peri menopause type and we will be right back well welcome back to dishing up nutrition on Saturday November night so just in a couple of weekends we invite official estrogens why are they so harmful and kind of more importantly where are we getting them yeah and and really what's really important we really starts at Halloween right so check online at our weight and wellness at dot at weight and wellness dot Com for locations and times you know they're painful periods so also when I'm working with women and Peri menopause many of them are actually prescribed Jack for November from November first to November twenty second we are offering five of our ninety minute classes for only ten or Carlos Office at six five one six nine nine three four three eight to learn more and to get any questions answered correctly Barack yeah so the good news is that we have over three billion pairs of DNA we've got a lot of DNA hanging out in all right so we are caroline we were just talking before we went to break you were about to kind of introduce this topic about okay what are these I'm talking to many young women who were started on birth control pills to control things like their acne or two thousand and two this is a while ago but remember the women's Health Initiative study this was being gone back in two thousand and two what they were doing they were giving women in birth control pills to manage their symptoms and I can really relate to that because when I started perryman pause and I'm already through menopause better it you to attend our menopause survival seminar at our Saint Paul location come and enjoy the day with US maybe actually say about increased risk for breast cancer and oral contraceptives are those birth control pills now some studies find slightly higher especially vulnerable to developing breast cancer down the road so as nutritionists and Dietitians here at nutritional weight and wellness I mean we generally encourage teens and women to try some natural alternatives to support their skin to support their horrible risk in some studies only find three percent higher risk after taking those oral contraceptives and some studies found a twenty percent higher risk for popcorn chicken during breaks or if I needed a snack during the day or pop tarts those high sugar more processed foods I'll betcha that was a huge okay so hold tight yeah tight so you are listening to dishing up nutrition and I'm happy to tell you that our ten dollar classes are and where we are getting them but Leo were almost time I I of course it always goes owns verses potentially increasing their risk of breast cancer using that birth control pill we help teens and connection for me in my teens to my skin and I just had no idea right yeah so the kind of going back to the research like what does the re Ah it depends on the study that you read of what that data's says but in general the data does indicate that teens who take oral birth control pills are I thought jeep it's a bolt goes right to birth control pills and you know these are hormonal or chemical contraceptives that week or so for my cycle my acne would get worse so that was the option presented to me at that time even out those hormonal swings oeser sugar and our bloodstream so we can kind of keep that inflammation down and ourselves really healthy so I think we'll talk more about that a little bit later l. into that category also long at age sixteen I started on the birth control pill to help with my acne because I noticed his artificial hormones into our system and we had Richard Grassy on dishing up nutrition talking about what he what is actually in out of the Diet even just for a few weeks acne clears up skin look so much better for many people it's the sugar that's in soda or the lactose or some of the or family members like my husband are going to be out for opening deer season and fiesta so that frees up your time to come and do a fund seminar where proteins in milk and dairy that are inflammatory so we know even if you are not personally taking artificial hormones in the form of birth I WANNA talk about how to get rid of that we cut our risks down so first of all when I think of artificial estrogens my very first so if we only knew right yes I mean looking back hindsight is twenty twenty right you know I was also at lunch eat a whole box of macaroni and cheese how yes absolutely we see that in clinic or in our counseling rooms all the time and we even have a section on our health questionnaire about have you in the past or are you let's be honest we help adults also have acne the natural way the first thing we look at it as an anti inflammatory diet absolutely so yep absolutely so yeah it's it's the sugar sugar equals inflammation you have to try to keep it simple I find too so it's I see the sugar and sometimes I do see a dairy connection with acne yeah the acne yet with the skin and so if we can get some of these currently on birth control and I always ask those questions was it four skin was it for you here he had problems and things like that and I does he said unless you are drinking filtered water you may be taking in artificial estrogens it is best to drink only filtered letter from glass containers will elaborate on the glass piece a little while later our most recent podcast with Richard Our most recent show with me receptors to support our health but any other type of toxic estrogen can and does fit into the guess what birth control that we screwed excrete through our urine or feces so you know here's a little more biochemistry about estrogen we have estrogen receptors throughout our body and brain such as brass my doctor that was the first thing she said to me Oh well we can just go back on the birth control pellet I went oh no no no no no no we're not doing that yeah the use of your healthy estrogen there are some theories that actually infertility is related to these artificial estrogens actors for estrogen are in all of these different issues right these artificial estrogens bind or stick to your estrogen receptors and they're blocked infertility yeah that's interesting I love that analogy with the baseball catcher's Mitt and how those estrogens are supposed to fit into that bounce off and these healthy hormones are actually being blocked and a very similar manner and this could result in troll or hormone replacement therapy there is more to the story about how these artificial hormones and that you know there are different ways that we can still get some of the Uterus skin lungs liver thyroid muscles and even our immune cells just to name a few areas in our body oh through our website or going to our dishing up nutrition APP or go to your APP listening device and then search for the show it's called is my town salary factory receptors and that affects any and all parts of our body so because right these cell weights former Estra dial which is the most potent form of estrogen can actually enter our drinking water via I can't believe it okay so you are listening to dishing up nutrition if you are one of our podcast listeners let us know how admit but when we have these toxic Zeno estrogens they come in actually take up space or they might just block the actual estrogen from getting in we're doing by writing a review about us next week Kara and Theresa will ask the question is wait the cause of type two diabetes Dick over a baseball catcher's Mitt so rather than allowing the ball to be caught by hitting the pocket of the MIT it would cause the ball he's or even again adults like cutting out the milk and I hear about milk and ice cream a lot moment ice cream tend to be the big troublemakers and when we can get those and your family and maybe your friends really may want to listen together and we'll be right back knowing how to eat the right food can change your health change your body tap water he's kind of water guru guy absolutely love her to yes we do and we've had him on the show several times one of his quotes from one of our previous shows or estrogen receptors are the estrogen that is made in our ovaries so that's the good estrogen right stuff we want should fit into those being able to be used in a helpful way in the body Yeah I think if we can picture that coding on there I think that's a good visual definitely so so almost what that means I kinda nutshell as we really need to watch those sugars the all of those foods that turn into a lot of up water safe well Leah people are probably wondering how do these estrogens get into our water supply it's a great question to ask so estrogen and the last just kicking down become welcome to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness a special good morning many different diets and then had gastric bypass surgery but gained all the weight back and that's when you heard about the twelve week nutrition for weight loss class they have and what they do is they lock on or bind to our estrogen receptors it's let's picture this similar to putting a piece of plastic they will then discuss and share a bunch of very valuable information with you about this topic throughout the show it's a show that you Richard was back Info on February eighteenth of twenty eighteen so I mentioned earlier if you're interested in going back and listening to that show you can either access that show eh change your outlook that's what they preach at nutritional weight and wellness and Christie is one of their success stories approves it yeah I battled my weight all my life trade attrition for Weight Loss Twelve Week Class I lost forty pounds and more importantly I feel good I'm healthy no aches and pains I sleep better than I ever had original weight and wellness I did I heard about it on dishing up nutrition the radio show and decided that it was a good thing for me to try and how did it work it worked great I took the those of the hosts or presenters they're not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent disease product statements have not been evaluated by the F._D._a.. There is a paper that came out it was titled Gastro Genetic and Estrogen Activity of Soy Ice Oh Flav owns and that particular study found evidence that soy created cancer in rats so this was a mouse study and that there was a possible link between goitres or in law arch thyroid glands in humans and these animals and humans were eating soy so this makes me think all the time is in our everyday environment have continually increased with the exception of most European countries which have estrogens and she had mentioned birth control pills and like hormonal contraceptives I also want to add another thing that we half the obesity rate of the United States yeah that's amazing yes and I think it's just one of those many factors that plays a role increased from ten percent to twenty percent and now we're hovering closer to thirty percent these days though during those same years estrogen from our environment that creates some of these artificial estrogens and this may be as a surprise to some people but soy creates artificial estrogen you buy nutritional weight and wellness in the past thirty years there has been a steady growth in the obesity rate within the US adult population it has and these research studies is looking at the source of the research both who conducted the research and also who funded the research so that's talking about following a a company who produces and sells soy they would obviously have a vested interest in that research study then yes so back in two thousand and a and a significant amount of Astro Gen-x so what about the obesity rates in Europe compared to the US when we know that Europe actually has find out more weight and wellness dot com or give them a call six five one six nine nine three four three eight welcome back to dishing up nutrition brought to you the money trail back right right so did an independent researcher conduct the research or did the research come from was it funded by well enough there are some studies that say benefit some studies that say you know detrimental effects but I think one of the things we do need to look at when we examined can we be doing this yeah yeah so we're coming back from our break here caroline had brought us into weird we get some of these artificial into why we're gaining weight why we're having trouble losing it why we have such high rates of obesity and so we look to Europe sometimes as leaders am melanoma working Absolutely so again we we look to nutrition I mean look to other alternatives as to okay what can be going on and yeah it went up that's a really really discouraging isn't it after all the Hoopla about you know we need to decrease this us now for years research has been going back and forth about the benefits versus the harmful effects of Roy ready and we were talking about this earlier had when you go to the coffee shop do you order a soy latte or do you use soy protein powder in your smoothies or in your recipes those protein bars it's important for us as counselors to know about this and ask question right so maybe we ask them questions about their previous nutrition habits of away protein so an overview of numerous research papers back in Twenty fifteen listed five health risks of eating soy products out all the thyroid problems that we see in the clinic o day in and day out right yeah lots of them absolutely and even if our clients are coming in necessarily to talk about we talk soy products again we're talking about those processed soy products so we don't recommend soy milk we don't recommend soy bad like what can we be doing better with our system and I think recently I read on or are they just published the of the rates of obesity here in Minnesota in one of these of course it pertains to our topic is increase in breast cancer but also guys are not exempt either male hormonal in like that we know soy produces an artificial estrogen and that artificial estrogen is associated with many harmful fertility problems and hypothyroidism that one yeah right absolutely we've all lean we've linked all of these things to eating soy products protein as a protein source as protein isolate and protein bars or as a replacement in some more like soy burgers and things that okay so let's dig into some of the chemicals used on our crops that produce these toxic artificial estrogens dreams and we've all heard about the stories of deformed frogs and their ref- reproductive problems pounds of atrazine onto their fields so think about this corn that's heavily sprayed it could be your vegetables could be wheat and that becomes a serious problem because then what happens that runoff gets into our lakes and ours and according to the household product database that's put out by the US Health and Human Services there are nineteen common I protein bars I'm always on the lookout of what is the kind of protein that is being used in these bars is it from a better source like way or is it coming from actress Zine is Astro- genetic which means it is high in those artificial toxic estrogens actor so we believe that is just one more reason to eat organic organic fruits organic vegetables and organic grains facts that far outweigh any potential benefits for most people any financial benefits that we may read from that yeah so no so I know so some form or your neighbors using yeah absolutely so and of course in the US farmers annually spray about eighty million we're gonNA start with atrazine so and that's a weed killer it would be something like we'd be gone or miracle Gro feed and our weed and feed zien usage get this was banned in Europe in two thousand and four that's fifteen years ago and we still use it yeah they should probably take a leaf what extent we use on our lawns and our gardens with actress seen so you may not have heard that word before but we probably have all used it and to avoid those Astro Genyk the estrogens effect of atrazine residue remember commercial farmers spray there group spoke there yeah it's interesting to note that Europe's rate of obesity we talked about that a little bit earlier is half the rate of the US facts of atrazine of pesticides of insecticides herbicides. I often when I'm talking with clients in the counseling room it usually grain and vegetable and corn crops with atrazine wheat is sprayed corners sprayed oats are sprayed so you may find up comes up at some point maybe they've grown up in a more farming community or they live or work in a farming community and so we talk about where they could be getting some of those exposures toxic estrogens your body has been exposed to yes I caroline I think that is huge for people to know and understand about those spy feed lot corn fed animals so again like feedlots this is where the animals go to get fattened up before slaughter and they're getting that you might even have to give up grains or Clark to be very beneficial for your overall health because it's going to help reduce that we would right exactly so when we eat that type of meat and eat the fat from those types of meats we get exposed to more of these artist hides now these very estra genyk cows and pigs store these artificial estrogen 's or toxic estrogens in their fat cells just like are hormone replacement therapy or birth control pills at nutritional weight and wellness we recommend better safer ways to manager Ed corn they're getting fed soy Osos high carbohydrate but also those types of grains that tend to be sprayed with that atrazine or other herbicides official estrogens so this morning caroline and I we've really we've just touched on the surface of all the different ways we could be exposing ourselves to these talks their every day life right yeah now think about let's go to meet for a minute so think about regular meat conventional me exactly produce soda actually it's a wonderful book it's full of research and actually a good dose of humor and we like this book so much that we would like to invite maybe someday sick cancer causing chemicals and products in so if you're interested in this particular topic if this perk your ears up or again if you if you so now we want to give you some general guidelines to reduce your exposure to these top toxic or you know bad estrogens estrogens and then excess toxic estrogen has our bodies hold onto body fat so this is where that vicious cycle into our offices it was it's called Astro generation by Anthony Day Anthony J Dr Anthony J he's a researcher right here in minute stored in your body fat and Estrogen ix actually stimulate fat growth so if you're having trouble losing weight you just might sales I think you'll see an improvement in your body weight and your estrogen load second is stop eating all breads and grains at least for a period of time be caught in that estrogen fat cycle and we'll be right back welcome back to dishing up nutrition before we went to break and hopefully reduce your cancer risk so number one guess what first and foremost of void that HR t all solutions for you number one stop eating any and all fast food so that one that was a tough one think this happens to men to absolutely no so you leave out those Ma'am absolutely definitely so here are just a couple possible as someone who has been touched by breast cancer or maybe running high estrogen there's a wonderful book out there that we just recently Anthony J on our show in the near future and have a chance to ask him some questions and get him into the studio with us that would be really fun that would be great show to have so Astra Jen load because it's not these types of things not only reduce weight but they also reduce your cancer risk down the road so of course thanks good estrogen coming from our ovaries so get your child into maybe see one of us and let's deal with that more naturally absolutely under percent of that grass fed animals to avoid the atrazine and roundup glyphosate You know that's yeah so we're kind of recapping and trying to give you some guidelines to help reduce your exposure before we went to the break and the people it's it's a habit for a lot of people but if we can get some of those reduce those artificial estrogens take out those bad fats those harmful refined meaner for at least two weeks now if you follow this I think you really will see a reduction in your weight but also in your accent into play and we see so many women with high estrogen levels who are stuck and they can't get

Coming up next
