Deadly New Warning for Breast Cancer Treatment

Man, oh, man, mainstream medicine LOVES to brag about all the “progress” they’ve made treating breast cancer. 

They’ll tell you that they’re catching cancers earlier than ever – and that barbaric treatments like surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation are helping countless women beat the disease. 

But here’s what they’re NOT telling you… 

The treatment that supposedly “cured” your cancer can QUADRUPLE your risk of dying from America’s number-one killer.

You may be jumping right from the frying pan into the fryer.

Common forms of breast cancer treatment like chemo and radiation are notorious for causing nasty side effects like nausea and vomiting, hair loss, mouth sores, loss of appetite, and more. 

The problem, of course, is that while these treatments kill breast cancer cells, they kill healthy cells as well.

Think of them like collateral damage.

But if you manage to survive the cancer – and the treatments – then you might think you’re out of the woods.

Unfortunately, according to a recent study published in the British Journal of Cancer, that’s just not the case.

In a study that tracked nearly 15,000 breast cancer patients over almost 40 years, researchers found that breast cancer survivors who underwent chemo or radiation had a dramatic increase in the risk of heart disease and heart attack.

Let’s look at the specifics.

Those who underwent radiotherapy had double the risk of developing heart disease, compared to other forms of treatment.

And women who underwent radiation had a 50% higher risk of having a heart attack, compared to the rest of the population.

The risks of chemotherapy were even worse.

Those who had anthracycline-based chemo had rates of heart failure that were FOUR TIMES higher than those who had other forms of treatment.

But the worst outcomes of all were reserved for the women who received BOTH the chemotherapy and radiation.

Their risk of heart disease was 9-FOLD higher.

I’m not telling you to skip chemo or radiation (although you should always explore all of your options). At the end of the day, deciding how to treat your cancer is a very personal decision between you and your doctor. 

But there are a few key points you can take away from a study like this one.

First, if you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are considering treatment options, be sure to weight out the heart risks associated with these drugs.

Second, if you’re a breast cancer survivor who has undergone one or both of these treatments, it’s good to be away of your increased risk for heart disease and heart attacks. 

That way you can be taking active steps to keep your heart as healthy as you can.

To a brighter day,
