Used as a bio-weapon, mycotoxin has engineered many diseases in Africa, including Nodding and breast cancer.

Since the launching of this blog eight months ago, the new health blog hasn't only generated thousands of readers monthly but also a lot of friends on various social media. 

Mr. Bernard Sode, one of the Ghanaian friends on Facebook, contacted my co-writer, micro-surgeon, Johan Van Dongen, last year December 23, to tell him of the death of his wife by breast cancer. 

After sending his condolences, Mr. Sode, in grief, asked the Micro-surgeon/scientist,"why so many African women are dying of breast cancer?" 

Breast cancer is a global issue and it is increasing rapidly. Each year more and more women are being diagnosed with breast cancer. The cause of breast cancer differs. 

In this article dedicated to Evelyn Sode, Bernard's wife, the Dutch Micro-surgeon/scientist, Dongen, explains some factors which have facilitated to the rapid occurrence of breast cancer in Africa. 

In Africa; mold exposure is a growing problem. What is mold? It is a fungi that grow in the form of multicellular thread-like structures called hyphae. 

African-American women have had a lower incidence, yet higher mortality rate from breast cancer compared with White-American women. Why?

African-American women also have had a higher risk for early-onset, high-grade, node positive, and hormone receptor-negative disease. Similar features have characterized hereditary breast cancer, prompting speculation that risk factors could be genetically transmitted.

Further evaluation of this theory required the study of breast cancer among women from Sub-Saharan Africa because of their shared ancestry with African-American women.

Black and White women and the difference of breast cancer

The average age of breast cancer diagnosis in Africa is approximately 10 years younger than Breast Cancer BRCA patients of western nations, and disease stage distribution was shifted toward more advanced disease, which resulted in higher mortality rates. However, these features were also found to be similar to data on breast cancer in African-American women.

Moreover, mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 have been reported in African-American women, but the extent of the contribution of BRCA1 and BRCA2 to breast cancer burden in Africa was uncertain. Limited financial resources lead to suboptimal cancer data collection, as well as delayed diagnosis and treatment of many African breast cancer patients. At least that is what regular scientists state.

But this is absolutely not our conclusion at all. Investigation of growth and endocrine disrupting effects of the mycotoxins zearalenone and aflatoxin B1 on breast cancer in vitro due to the co-occurrence and the endocrine disrupting potentials of Zealerone ZEA and Aflatoxin AFB1. The hypothesis of this project was proposed as exposure to low doses of ZEA and AFB1 might affect the growth of hormonal dependent breast cancer. 

This study confirmed the growth promoting properties of ZEA, and is the first to report the combined effects of ZEA and AFB1 on breast cancer cell growth, suggesting endocrine-disrupting mycotoxins that co-occur in a human environment can interact and modulate the effects of each other on human health.

Overall Conclusions

In history, parallels between breast cancer burdens of African-American and sub-Saharan–African women were provocative, indicating the need for further exploration of possible genetically transmitted features related to estrogen metabolism and/or breast cancer risk. And when they say further exploration is needed, then we know there are more guinea pigs experiments on Africans and African-Americans necessary.

The investigation of Alero Fregene And Lisa Newman from the Department of Surgery, University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan published in; Cancer 2005;103:1540 –50, American Cancer Society, lack one thing. Namely; the application of biowarfare agents like mycotoxin and aflatoxin in the environment such as water and food of all Sub-Saharan countries as described underneath.

Moreover, what strikes us most is that nations within the continent of Africa which are most affected are slave trade ports. During the colonial years, these slave trade ports were located in the Western African nations of Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Gambia, Guinea, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, and as far south as Angola. 

The term sub-Saharan Africa includes these nations, as well as The Republic of the Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Uganda, and South Africa. Remarkable is the fact that the increase of breast cancer is found in these countries and in South Africa, but Lesotho and Swaziland are mostly affected.

Environmental health experts in Africa are seeing increasing numbers of individuals with a complex myriad of symptoms directly related to mold exposure. Because mold-related disorders are so often unrecognized and misdiagnosed. We have been posting a series of articles about mold, its potential dangers and the origin of diseases. 

All too often, drugs are prescribed that don't address the underlying problem and have side effects that further compromise immune response, further impairing your body's natural ability to heal itself. Even the development of Aids and nodding disease is possible.

One of our discoveries is that there is only one sickness causality, and that is the over-acidification of the blood and tissues in these patients caused by eating poisoned food or living in a certain biological warfare environment, people become overly-acidified.

Mold The Cause Of Mycotoxicoses And Breast Cancer

Mycotoxicoses, like all toxicological syndromes, can be categorized as acute or chronic. Acute toxicity generally has a rapid onset and an obvious toxic response, while chronic toxicity is characterized by low-dose exposure over a long time period, resulting in cancers and other generally irreversible effects.

Symptoms of mycotoxicoses are usually a flu kind of reaction but people are unaware that they have been exposed to toxic mold in their environment. The first step is to identify your symptoms. Most victims will exhibit one, ten or up to twenty or more symptoms on a daily basis.

The most important information about these symptoms can be connected to many other diseases or toxicities. Therefore one must be sure they are dealing with toxic mold. Currently; the only way to prove that a person's symptoms are related to toxic mold spores that put off toxins called 'mycotoxins' is to be tested for the presence of 'mycotoxins' in the body.

Breast Cancer And Mycotoxin

Breast cancer in Africa is associated with an increased frequency of the consumption of mold-poisoned food. Fungi produce toxic metabolites that are referred to as mycotoxins. These can cause cancer. Aflatoxin is a mycotoxin with carcinogenic potential. 

This is found in inferior peanut butter and other nut and dairy products. But mycotoxin is also found in water, swimming pools and in remote parts of the jungle as Belgian paratroopers found out in Rwanda and the former Belgian Congo.

Although researchers have studied in 1993 about human breast cancer tissue and found significant amounts of carcinogenic aflatoxin in the cancer tissue, suggesting aflatoxin and mold as part of the causes of breast cancer. But they never pointed to the use of mycotoxin as a biowarfare agent in Africa shipped by the United States.

The pH levels of our internal fluids affect every cell in our body. A chronically high acidity affected body tissue, and if nothing is done to interfere with the all cellular activities and functions then an enormous explosion of diseases appears. In other words, a too high acidity disrupts the life. It lies at the root of cancer.

One sample study is by Le, et al. (1986), in a French case-control study of 1,010 breast cancer cases and 1,950 controls with non-malignant diseases, found that breast cancer was found to be associated with increased frequency of mold-fermented cheese consumption and other poisoned food. Breast cancer in Africa is of major concern because of the enormous pollution with mycotoxins spread in food and as biowarfare agents.

Going, et al. (1990) found that weddellite (calcium oxalate) crystals are present in calcifications found in the breast tissue of African patients with breast cancer. Calcium oxalate crystals are formed when calcium binds with oxalic acid. 

Oxalic acid is a mycotoxin that can be produced by a number of different fungal species. Some fungi produce such large amounts of oxalic acid that they are used for commercial production of chemicals. For instance, aspergillus niger fungal infection in human lungs produces large amounts of oxalic acid.

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 mycotoxin’s presence in a particular tissue. Their finding? “Tumor tissues of African women had higher aflatoxin-adduct levels than did normal tissue from the same individual elsewhere.”

Mycotoxins are well documented for their toxic effects on human cells; they cause a number of problems in normal cell function and are associated with a wide variety of clinical symptoms and diseases. Harmful effects of mycotoxins are often only noticeable over time and mycotoxins cause a variety of diseases. 

The harmfulness of some mycotoxins exposure and effect can't be detected immediately but only in the long-term or repeated exposure. Often there is no LD50 test known whether this is greater than 100 mcg/kg. A limited number of mycotoxins are known to have an acute toxic effect in humans and animals. 

These direct effects manifest themselves in the form of stomach/intestinal problems (aflatoxins, fumonisins, patulin) or ergotism (ergot).

Mycotoxins and Syndromes

Common mycotoxins are aflatoxins, the ergotamines, the fumonisins, trichothecenes, zearalenone the group, citrinin, ochratoxin A, patulin, and sterigmatocystin. Formats into groups include based on the physical properties, chemical structure, the nature of the illness they cause or the mechanism of the toxin.

Meanwhile, there are hundreds of mycotoxins described. Some are carcinogenic mycotoxins (aflatoxins) or possibly carcinogenic (fumonisins, ochratoxin A, sterigmatocystin ). In addition, mycotoxins can be harmful to the immune system (certain trichothecenes, aflatoxins, fumonisins, ochratoxin A, patulin), kidneys (some trichothecenes, fumonisins, citrinin, ochratoxin A, patulin), liver (aflatoxins, fumonisins, ochratoxin A).

The nervous system (some trichothecenes, fumonisins), the fetus (aflatoxins, ergotamines, citrinin, ochratoxin A, sterigmatocystin), or they can cause fertility problems because of similarity to the hormone estrogen (zearalenone). 

Ergotamines cause ergotism (St Anthony's fire), a disease that manifests itself in blood vessel constriction and leads to the dying off of fingers and toes (gangrene), and mental disorders.

There are many diseases which are associated with a too high acidity in our body. Among others rheumatism, lumbago, osteoporosis, infertility, (breast)cancer, depression, insomnia, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and more. Precisely that's why we have to fight acidoses within the body.

An acid-base imbalance also affects the immune system so that as a result of a weakened immune system (leading to Aids), such as chronic infections also arise sinusitis, bronchitis, candidiasis, urinary tract infections (with kidney damage), viral infections such as Epstein-Barr virus, and toxoplasmosis. There is an enormous list of symptoms concerning mold infection as depicted in;

Testing For Presence Of  Mycotoxins

Testing for the presence of mycotoxins in the body, there are no rapid accurate diagnostic tests that can confirm with certainty the presence of invasive fungal disease as described by John Rex's; “Managing fungal infections in the new millennium. April 2000”.

Also, Kibbler found out that dissemination of yeasts is unlikely to be recognized because they are rarely identified in the routine laboratory (Kibbler CC, Principles and Practice of Clinical Mycology 1996).

Prevention And Treatment Of Fungal Infections

Acid-Alkaline Balance As A Treatment

It is very important to have a chemical balance between these acid and alkaline conditions, both in the blood and body tissues. The acid and alkaline conditions are opposite, and when they are balanced, they cancel each other out. 

However, it is easy for the body tissues to become too acidic, and this imbalance sets the stage for disease. In scientific terms, the acid/alkaline relationship is known as pH. The pH of the body has a profound effect on the inner environment and microorganisms. 

The pH of blood and tissues should be approximately 7.3. The pH of saliva and urine should be 6.8 to 7.0. Acceptable medical lab parameters are 5.5 to 6.5 for the urine, but at 5.5 and 6.5 the urine is too acidic. One of the easiest and cheapest ways to deal with acidoses is the administration of Sodium Bicarbonate as described in;

Baking soda, cancer, and fungus:

Steps to prevent and treat fungal infections should include Alkalinize the body

·Consume lots of green alkalinizing vegetables.

·Consume green drinks like liquid chlorophyll and vegetable juices.

·Avoid acidic, yeast-containing foods such as refined sugar, peanuts, corn, mushrooms, grains, alcohol and trans fatty acids.

·Minimise stress.

·Use an anti-fungal agent.

·Treatment of a chronic fungal infection may cause a flu-like illness, skin rashes or an initial worsening of current symptoms. This is caused by the fungal organisms dying and is known as a 'Herxheimer' reaction. The reaction can last from a few days to a few weeks. The longer the reaction, the more severe the fungal problem.

·Taking Essiac tea twice a day can hep to minimize the reaction.

·It may take several years to recover from severe systemic fungal infections particularly if mercury or pesticides are also involved. Reoccurrences will occur if a high sugar/high carbohydrate diet is returned to.
