Breast Cancer & Environmental Toxins – OHR #467

Environmental Toxins and Breast Cancer: OHR #467

It is appalling that more than 200 million pounds of the weedkiller glyphosate is used annually by US farmers, despite its link to cancer, endocrine disruption, infertility, immune dysfunction, liver and kidney damage, and microbiome disruption. A report from the CDC found that more than 80% of urine samples drawn from 2,310 children and adults in the US had detectable traces of glyphosate. The evidence against the use of glyphosate keeps mounting, yet it’s still legally drenching our food supply. And not only is glyphosate harming human health and the health of our future generations, it’s also destroying our ecosystems.

Here at LifeWorks, we have been testing patients for glyphosate levels for many years and I have NEVER seen a patient with negative levels in urine. All patients are tested for glyphosate.

It appears that the entire aquafer is saturated with this toxic chemical so your drinking water and showering water are exposing you. If you are on well water, your chances of being exposed are higher. If you’re curious to learn more, Mark Hyman MD  did an entire podcast episode on the topic with MIT Senior Research Scientist Stephanie Seneff. It’s well worth listening to.

It helps greatly to eat only organic food, as it won’t contain glyphosate.

In recent studies that I did on our staff, all of whom had glyphosate in their urine collections, adding our new product Metal Free and Chemical detox improved the body’s ability to get rid of the stuff. Since I too have glyphosate in my urine, despite drinking reverse osmosis water, filtering my shower water, and eating organic, I am taking this product every day. Recommended is one dropper twice a day, but I am taking twice that amount as an added protection.

Living long and in good health means protecting oneself from the toxic environment. This is an important one to be aware of.

Hope you find this helpful.

Have a great week.
Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

About Dr. Minkoff, Medical Director

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr. Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr. Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr. Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy, and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr. Minkoff is one of the most in-demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best-selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein. The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness. Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 43 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teaches to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
