THIS New York Times REPORTER STILL DOESN'T GET IT
On Tuesday, May 11, 1999, Jane Brody wrote a biographical column that might very well become chapter one of her obituary. Brody is respected by many, and rejected by those who have followed her endorsement of MILK and DAIRY products.
Brody was the first to censure Dr. Spock who advised that no human should ever
consume cow's milk. She waited until after his death to write her New
York Times editorial, courageously ridiculing his vegetarian lifestyle
when he no longer could respond.
Brody's 5/11/99 column chronicles her battle against breast cancer. First came the surgery, a lumpectomy. That invasive procedure was followed by six weeks of radiation. Her choice of words for the present and future treatment is curious.
"I have now begun the third and, in a way, the most
exciting phase: five years of daily treatment with the drug tamoxifen."
Tamoxifen has become a
death sentence for many women. Brody has previously written about this
wonder drug, supporting its use as a preventative measure for women not
yet diagnosed with breast cancer. We wonder why she so easily
dismisses the fact that thousands of women who take tamoxifen later
develop uterine or endometrial cancer.
originally developed to counteract the strong growth proliferation
initiated by the most powerful growth hormone in the human body,
insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I).
Many hay fever
sufferers understand the predicament of inhaling nose sprays. Use it
too often and there is a rebound effect. What once works to relieve
symptoms, ends up making the original problem worse. Tamoxifen works in
much the same way. Tamoxifen users are warned not to continue its use
for more than 18 months. Jane is excited that she is going to use it
for five years. Sure, Jane. You should live so long!
IGF-I is the only
hormone in nature that is identical between two species of animal.
Human IGF-I and bovine IGF-I are identical. Both have 70 amino acids
in the same exact gene sequence. For years, Brody has misled her
female readers by endorsing the one substance outside of the human body
containing enormous and inappropriate quantities of this powerful
Is it wise to take
daily doses of this hormone? IGF-I has been identified as the key
factor in the growth and proliferation of every breast cancer.
On November 8, 1994, the New York Times published a story (written by Gina Kolata) which revealed:
Although 1 percent of women between the ages of 40 and 50 are diagnosed with breast cancer, autopsy studies reveal that 39 percent of women in that age group have breast cancer.
Cancerous tumors are the ones that have somehow
thrown off the usually tight genetic controls on unwanted growth.
IGF-I in MILK is the
key factor in breast cancer's growth. By promoting milk and dairy
products you increase the odds of increased levels of breast cancer in
our society. A NOTMILK diet might very well save your life, Jane, and
the lives of thousands of your readers.
Every time you take a
bite of cheese or treat yourself to a bowl of ice cream, you eat a
powerful growth hormone. Yogurt is loaded with IGF-I, as is cream
cheese and sour cream. MILK is a DEADLY POISON for you, Ms. Brody.
We know from Gina Kolata's brilliant article that breast cancer is VERY common. It always starts with one cell. In three months, that one cell divides and becomes two cells. Three months later, it's a four cell mass, continuing to grow and double every three months. After your first year, the breast cancer was only sixteen cells in size. Somewhere along your breast cancer timeline, your body might very well have controlled that breast cancer.
While thirty-nine percent of women between the ages
of 40 and 50 have breast cancer, only one-percent in that age group are
clinically diagnosed. Our immune systems have tight genetic controls.
We stop it from growing. Nobody knows how this process occurs.
It takes eight to ten
years for a breast cancer to grow into a one million-cell tumor. This
is traditionally the smallest lump a woman can feel in her breast.
After that, the growth is rapid. Every three months it continues to
JANE BRODY IS ANGRY
Jane Brody's telephone voice does not leave the most pleasant of messages. Is it the breast cancer that delivers such an irascible and acrimonious missive, or is this "plain Jane" talking?
I called the New York Times at 212-556-1234 and reached Brody's voice mail. Here is a part of her message:
"If you have sent me something, do not leave a message calling my attention to it. That will only result in my throwing out the material without looking at it."
What a lovely attitude you have, Jane.
You know what? We're going to send you a copy of
