Do we know what causes breast cancer yet?

    Good question Theodore, but unfortunately, we don’t know what causes breast cancer yet.  We do know some of the risk factors involved with the disease.  They include gender, age, family history, race, and more.

    We do know what breast cancer is, not what causes it. It occurs when DNA from a cell is damaged and it causes the cell to replicate over and over without stopping. This causes growths which may or may not be cancerous. “The genetic material (DNA) of a cell can become damaged or changed, producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division. When this happens, cells do not die when they should and new cells form when the body does not need them. The extra cells may form a mass of tissue called a tumor.”

    There’s speculation that BPA from heated plastic may contribute to the disease.  It’s recommended you don’t drink water from a plastic water bottle that has been sitting in the sun or otherwise heated.  Also, increased amounts of estrogen have been attributed to breast tissue growth.  Studies are currently being ensued for topical lavender and geranium products, as it seems to induce higher estrogen levels.
