Toxic Moulds & Breast Cancer

Toxic Moulds / Mycotoxins Linked to The Development of Breast Cancer

Here is a worrying thought currently no one is testing the indoor environment where Breast Cancer Clusters are being found, well certainly not the form of testing we believe should be implemented.

 

Environmental testing should include looking for reasons that could allow for fungal growth, Genetic DNA testing of the indoor environment and Mycotoxin testing (Mycotoxins are the chemicals produce by the fungi).
If there are positives to the above, then testing of the affected individuals may show the causative agent to be the chemical from the fungi- Mycotoxins.

Let’s look at what evidence has been published:

Aflatoxin Found In Human Breast Cancer Tissue
Researchers (1) examined human breast cancer tissue for evidence of the presence of aflatoxin, a recognized potent carcinogenic Mycotoxin. The researchers examined human DNA from a variety of tissues and organs to identify and quantify aflatoxin DNA-adducts. Such adducts are considered to be proof of the mycotoxins presence in a particular tissue. (These researchers had already proved the value of this method in the detection of aflatoxin-DNA adducts in tissue from a case of acute aflatoxin poisoning in Southeast Asia.)
DNA from normal and tumorous tissue obtained from patients with cancer of the breast was examined. Tumour tissues had higher aflatoxin-adduct levels than did normal tissue from the same individual.
The result of this study is that it verifies the presence of carcinogenic aflatoxin within the cancer tissue and thus implicates aflatoxin as a cause of breast cancer.
 
Cyclosporin (A Mycotoxin) Causes Breast Cancer In Humans (3 Studies)
Cyclosporin is a fungal derived drug. It is classified as a Mycotoxin in the mycology literature (2).

  • 1. Research reported the occurrence of de novo malignant tumours occurring in 598 renal transplant recipients who were immune-suppressed with Cyclosporin. (3)
    Eighteen of 598 patients receiving their first renal graft along with Cyclosporin treatment between 1981 and 1986 developed a malignancy at a mean interval of 33 months. The Cyclosporin-induced cancers included breast cancer.
  • 2. It has been reported that the occurrence of breast cancer is a complication of Cyclosporin use in a series of kidney transplant recipients. (4)
  • 3.  88 tumours in eighty-seven organ transplant recipients reported after the use of Cyclosporin. Malignancies appeared an average of 14 months after the Cyclosporin treatment. There was a surprising frequency of endocrine-related malignancies (ovarian, testicular and breast) among these malignancies. (5)

Aflatoxin Induces Malignant Changes in Human Breast Cells

(6) Noted that some environmental chemicals are stored in human breast fat which are documented to be rodent mammary carcinogens. These researchers stressed the importance of determining the cancer potential of environmental agents in this key target tissue.
An assay was developed for detecting cancer potential using cultures of normal human breast epithelial cells derived from 5 different women. A positive response was observed with aflatoxin.
The conclusion of this study was that aflatoxin causes normal human breast cells to become cancerous.

This information should be enough to validate the need for further research and certainly environmental investigation into areas where Breast Cancer Clusters are being found.
There is a wide range of published research which shows interaction between viruses, bacteria and other chemicals occurring in different cell lines which may be the reason that some humans have been affected by cancer and others not.
