Breast Cancer Patients With Heavy Metals

Study shows that breast tissue is contaminated with mercury, lead, cadmium, iron, chromium, zinc and nickel, and could benefit from high doses of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). (Cologne – 16 January 2007): A now published in the prestigious environmental health Faschzeitschrift Environmental Medicine Society 1 study shows that breast cancer tissue is overloaded with heavy metals and the high-dose Askorbinsuregabe in breast cancer patients in stages might be useful today reported Anouk Paimboeuf of the center for nourishing communication and health journalism (CEC) in Cologne). Under the direction of the university lecturer Dr. John G. Ionescu from the special Neukirchen Neukirchen scientists studied the specialty clinic, the Institute of Pathophysiology and Oncology, Charles University Prague and the Department of Clinical Chemistry of the famous Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and eight healthy 20 Brustkrebsbiopsien and showed that in breast cancer tissue, the much higher concentration of transition metals with aincreased production of free radicals, lipid peroxidation, DNA strand breaks and mutations, and tumor growth is closely linked. Compared with the control group, the scientists found in the tumor samples, a highly significant accumulation of heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, iron, chromium, zinc and nickel. The anti-tumor effect of high-dose vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is thus explained, because the auto-oxidation of the vitamin in the presence of heavy metals produced a strong production of free radicals like superoxide and hydrogen peroxide with deadly effect on the malignant cells. The findings confirm the suspicion that can play alongside hormonal dysregulations also the oxidative stress caused by environmental pollutants (such as transition metals) play an important role in the development of breast cancer. The study by Dr. John Ionescu describes the first time a significant accumulation of heavy metals in breast tissue. The increased concentration of heavy metals based therapeutic approaches with high-dose vitamin C or substituted phenols, such ascurrent study also confirmed results from the U.S. (under FDA oversight), illustrated by the renowned Dr. Ionescu in his publication. In further scientific studies, the researchers now want to find out if cancer cells accumulate heavy metals or heavy metals, the first lead to the degeneration. In addition, there is still need for further research on the importance of antioxidants such as vitamin C in the prophylaxis and treatment of cancer. From February 2007 Dr. John G. Ionescu belongs with his team to the expert panel from the Health Portal and presides over one environmental medical consultation. Contact: Special Clinic Neukirchen, Univ-.Doz. Dr. John G.
