The Necessity For Intelligent Talking Breasts!
Responding as well as possible (in the direction of truth and love) after hearing shocking news about a pending mastectomy (as a cancer "preventative").

September 29, 2019 - Evidence of the Link Between Cancer and the Suppression of Toxic Emotions -
"Extreme suppression of anger was the most commonly identified characteristic of 160 breast cancer patients who were given a detailed psychological interview and self-administered questionnaire in a study conducted by the King’s College Hospital in London, as reported by the Journal of Psychosomatic Research."
April 30, 2018 - What do you learn from genetic testing?
The 23andMe says their health risk reports focus on specific genetic variants related to 10 diseases or conditions. However, most of these conditions have no known treatment or cure. Who would want to know 10, 20 or 30 years before the fact that they have a fatal condition over which they have no control? Not me!
23andMe also gives you the raw data on MTHFR gene variations, which can be interpreted elsewhere. They also recently began to offer the BRCA1 and 2 breast cancer and ovarian cancer risk genes.
According to Medscape this medical Pandora’s Box depends on what the buyer does with that information. “Will knowing your cells carry a gene connected to a deadly disease prompt healthy changes, or unnecessary fear? Will a clean report lull people into a false sense of security, leading them to skip steps that might prevent it?” I’d also ask whether an employer is going to have access to your tests and fire or not hire you based on the results? Or will you be refused insurance coverage?
Because, we in the West, just adopt new technologies without asking about the disservices, there is no stopping this testing.
The fact is that “Genetic testing is already a billion-dollar industry, and some research estimates that it could grow to $10 billion in the next decade. It’s already spawned a new health care specialty: genetic counselors, who help guide people through the process and what their results may mean – or don’t.”
From the horror stories told to us by our customers, I’m sure most genetic counselors can’t tell you how to prevent all those genetic diseases but spend your time and money telling you that you don’t have to worry because the test is probably not accurate! After all ”A new study found that 40% of direct-to-consumer genetic tests had false positives.” Lord Sufferin’ Cats, just give me my money back and erase my memory of all those fake mutations you just planted in my brain – which are enough to give me the disease out of fear!
There is no standardization of genetic counseling courses. If the counselors are medically trained, they aren’t going to know about the epigenetic action of nutrients to help prevent gene expression. They will just follow the lead of a Hollywood actress and recommend, as does this article, that the client “consider preventive surgery to remove all or part of her breasts” if they test positive for the breast cancer gene.
It’s impossible for anyone to fathom the complexity of genetic testing. For example, the BRCA 1 and 2 genes have “more than 1,000 mutations.” Researchers say that “We’re still learning what the mutations are. We’re still learning what the mutations mean, and we’re still learning what impact particular mutations may have for a particular individual. Just because it’s there doesn’t mean it’s going to happen.”
The Medscape article reported that “Art Caplan, head of medical ethics at New York University’s medical school, says he was surprised the FDA approved the 23andMe application to test for breast cancer mutations, given the limits of the testing.” Caplan was concerned that “Since most breast cancers aren’t caused by the mutations 23andMe can identify, ‘It seems to me a risk of wasting money on people who aren’t in the risk population.’” What, Mr. head of medical ethics, you’re concerned about the wasted money – what about the mental health of the consumer of these erroneous tests!
Here’s how 23andMe is handling the stress of this testing. They say that if a test shows a positive result for a gene mutation they send an e-mail acknowledging that the results “can be upsetting or cause anxiety.” The email – not an actual person – urges you to discuss the results with a doctor or a genetic counselor for support. The notification also suggests thinking about whether the news should be shared with relatives, “since they may also have the risk variant.” And thus they become a customer of 23andMe.
According to the Medscape article there are now dozens and dozens of companies that do genetic testing but unlike 23andMe, which is licensed direct to consumer, they require someone getting tested to sit down with a doctor or a genetic counselor to discuss their family history and options first, and can test for more mutations. They feel this gives better support to the patient/client. However, I think both sides are wrong and no one is thinking of the burden on the patient/client many of whom are thrown into depression with the news of their gene mutations.
Some people may do testing to find out the worst and use that information to help them make better lifestyle choices. I feel that I am already doing all the positive things to stay healthy: exercise, good sleep, laughter, Completement Formulas, Keto diet and intermittent fasting. Since I’m doing all these good things anyway, I don’t need to put a gun to my head!

Got two e-mails this morning from my beloved sister.
The first one was a genuine shock for me! She announced that she was going to have her breasts removed in a surgery she had scheduled for two days later! The reason for the surgery is "prevention". I responded asking for some communication that I said I needed to have with her about this.
The second e-mail was this:
"I need all my brain cells. -
5 Secrets to Slowing Aging
Stop smoking pot.
THC, the active chemical in marijuana, works by putting brain cells to sleep, experts say.
In the short term, smoking pot limits the brain's ability to absorb and retain information;
in the long term it can damage neurons, leading to memory loss and poor concentration."
I just responded to that one moments ago and in the process I was inspired to write: "I sure wish you had brain cells in your breasts!"
Maybe the scientific community can put there attention on this!
I might as well add this while I'm at it:
When we were entering puberty I asked my sister if she would show me her breasts. She said "not yet, wait till I'm older". Well she never showed me her breasts!
So after I read her shocking "news" I later imagined telling her "no, you can't have her breasts removed, yet, because you have not shown them to me!
Let's imagine that I actually communicated this to her. And that she disagreed with my thinking and my reasoning as well. Then I would ask for pictures. I'd tell her she should have some really nice pictures taken of her breasts. Then have pictures taken immediately after surgery (maybe even of the surgery itself) and send a set to me. Then I would have posters made up with a message about the need for better breast intelligence (and ones that can "talk" of their innate intelligence)!!
This afternoon my acupuncturist identified the problem and that is the decision by woman to have their breasts removed is based on fear. That fear originates with Western Medicine. It is an expression of a medical insanity and the polar opposite of the new medicine that is emerging.
If you are a woman who has breasts and especially if you are either approaching child-bearing years or with the capacity to have children please learn the truth about breast cancer from a non-AMA perspective so you can keep your breasts! (Your children will need them!) My best recommendation regarding the "Truth About Breast Cancer" is German New Medicine.
Under "Biology of genes":
"In biological terms the female breast is synonymous with caring and nurturing". Could a woman more likely decide to have her breasts removed if she no longer has a caring and nurturing relationship with her husband?
P.S. Maybe Western Medicine is under severe corporate influence to eliminate breast-feeding so that the only option for feeding babies is formulas!
