Warning: Surgery Can Cause Cancer Recurrence

The article, “Probing Surgery’s Link to Cancer Recurrence,” published in The Wall Street Journal [1], is enough to terrify any woman:

“Doctors have long noted that the rate of recurrence for women with breast cancer is highest during the first two years after surgery to remove the tumor. Now a group of researchers say they have found a reason why: the surgery itself…

“… They [researchers] say the cases recurred too early to be explained by another mechanism, so the researchers concluded that they were related to the women’s surgery…

“Dr. Retsky, lead investigator and lecturer in surgery at Children’s Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School, states ‘over half of all relapses in breast cancer are accelerated by surgery.’…”

Despite the best intentions, the surgical method to cure you of breast cancer can actually accelerate cancer’s destructive path. We don’t advocate rejecting surgery; it serves an often necessary purpose. But because breast surgery leads to increased relapse rates, the five-step protective measure plan I describe in my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”, is vital to your long-term survival.
