October 23, 2020: “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”, originated by AstraZeneca

By Beatrijs M.C.H.Penn

In GreenMedInfo of October 23, 2020 an interesting article was posted by Sayer Ji [1]. He lays out the deceit of AstraZeneca in promoting this ’Breast Cancer Awareness Month’ in 1985, a smart scam of perception-deception, because actually their two blockbusters Tamoxifen and Arimidex widely prescribed for helping women to heal from breast cancer are dangerous for women and will give more agony than healing. Trying to collect money for cancer research for the cancer patients, AstraZeneca can earn millions of dollars for their carcinogenic drugs, which is immoral and unethical. However, the masses of the people are easily fooled, do not do their research and moved by sentimental ‘compassion’ will donate to the ‘good cause.’ Doing so they contribute in the fraudulent toxic products of AstraZeneca, that cause metastasis and other damaging effects and do not contribute to healing of the patients and not to lengthening their life perspective.  Sayer Ji makes the origin and history of this scam very clear and warns against becoming ‘pink-washed’ this October. I agree with him.

I would like to make the reader more aware about Tamoxifen and Arimidex.

Tamoxifen, a hormonal ‘therapy’ — Estrogen Receptor antagonist

It is a popular drug used to ‘prevent’ breast cancer recurrence in women. The drug can cause weight gain of up to 25 pounds, enough to dramatically increase risk for other cancers, heart disease and diabetes, because toxins are stocked in fat cells. Tamoxifen is a hormone blocker, and blocks the production of estrogen in the pituitary gland. No research, done by the manufacturer has shown that women will live longer when they take Tamoxifen.

In the diagnostic examinations before the treatments the medical professionals can find out whether the estrogen or progesterone receptors react positively and then usually a hormonal therapy is prescribed, such as Tamoxifen. The idea behind all anti-estrogen medications is to suppress estradiol-specific cell metabolism. In theory this leads to stimulation of growth-inhibiting factors (TGF-β) an it is supposed to inhibit growth promoting factors (FGF-α and IGF).

It is a False Theory: in supposedly ‘scientific research’ mice, without tumors, were injected with chemical hormones (which is an artificial chemical substance not recognised by any healthy physical body) and it was observed that tumors started growing in these mice. The researchers concluded falsely that hormones can cause cancer tumor growth, so natural hormones must be reduced in humans, they concluded, and that will make tumors smaller, they thought. In my opinion: totally non logical thinking! I believe the chemical hormones, carcinogens, caused tumour growth because they were toxins, that are not recognized by the body and therefore cannot be digested and excreted and cause tumors to grow as a survival mechanism of the body. Dr Cousmine’s experiments showed, as cited by Lothar Hirneise [3] (p.84-88) that a tumor functions as a ‘second liver’ to help the body to contain the toxins that are harming the body and by fermentation give the body a little bit of energy.

In my opinion, the natural rhythms of hormonal production should never be interrupted or altered in any woman or man; also, not by birth control pills. Our body wisdom knows better what to do than mental mis-conceptions, false beliefs, and greed for profits.  

Polyunsaturated Fats and their function in creating excess estrogens.

Andreas Moritz [2] explains this process very clear:

There is an enzyme system called the protein kinase C (PKC) system that is excessively activated by certain substances and certain conditions. Substances that cause excess activation of this system are: polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs), including free linoleic and linoleic acids, excess estrogen (a known cancer promoter) and cancer promoting phorbol esters. These substances stimulate the cell while blocking the energy it needs to respond. The PKC system is also abnormally activated in diabetes and cancer. Unsaturated fats lead to thyroid suppression and consequent hormonal imbalances. Unsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its circulation and its tissue response. This leads to increased estrogen levels. The thyroid hormone is essential for the synthesis of the anti-aging hormones, namely pregnenolone, progesterone and DHEA. Also, since the thyroid converts cholesterol in your body to these anti aging steroids, low thyroid function can lead to high cholesterol uptake or utilization for synthesis of certain steroid hormones….Stress[1] and hypoxia (oxygen deprivation), can cause cells to absorb large amounts of unsaturated fatty acids. It is now well accepted that cancer cells are dependent on unsaturated fatty acids for their life and growth. (Moritz, 2010, p. 148-149) [2]  

The body would never do something against Life! When estrogen levels are increased it must come from some outside influence. So, it is total nonsense to start to suppress natural production of estrogen in a woman’s body, making high profits on the prescription of hormonal therapies.

To this day Tamoxifen is a very controversial ‘medication,’ states Lothar Hirneise [3]:

On the one hand there are ‘official studies’, which are supposed to prove   the effectiveness of this ‘medication’, on the other hand the leader of the major Tamoxifen study, Dr. Fisher had to rescind his study because he falsified important data (including the fact that there were 4 fatalities through Tamoxifen, and that cervical cancer occurred more frequently as a result of taking Tamoxifen). Most of the research studies for Tamoxifen and Arimedex were financed by AstraZenica. (2005, p.222) [3]

Conclusion, pharmaceutical company AstraZenica had great financial interest in the positive outcome!

There is real danger to Tamoxifen.

In the Netherlands, 309 women who had developed cervical cancer after breast cancer illness were examined. These women were compared with 860 women who “only” developed breast cancer, and the result was that women who had been taking Tamoxifen for a maximum of two years had 50% greater risk, women who had taken Tamoxifen for two – five years had 100% greater risk of developing cervical cancer, and women who had taken Tamoxifen for more than five years had a 690% greater risk of developing cervical cancer (Hirneise, 2005, p.222, mentions the article in the Lancet 2000, 356)[3] Moreover, the cervical cancer was more difficult to treat for these women, than it was for the women who had never taken Tamoxifen.

[1] Realize that stress can be anything: an emotional conflict, a loss, a physical inability after an accident, a bullying employer or colleague etc. Cells cannot discern where the stress comes from and form toxins inside of the cells and start to dysfunction.

Chemotherapy and the p53 gene

The National Cancer Institute and the Sloan Kettering Cancer centre also reported that Tamoxifen can induce mutations at the p53 gene, the guardian of the genome, which, of course, can be quite disadvantageous for cancer patients. When a person has high p53 the inhibition to create cancer tumors is higher, when a person has low p53 there is a much greater chance to develop more cancer cells and more tumors.

Various statements from within the allopathic community are also confusing. Hundreds of scientists write (and oncologists again and again cite what they write in their statements) that a chemo therapy is of no value at low p53 values, at the same time most chemo therapies are administered without measuring p53 gene value. For many years a p53 test or sensitivity test has been available. However, most doctors do not use them. Why not? Is it because they themselves do not believe in their significance? Are the costs too high, or is it because the health insurance companies do not want to pay for these p53 tests because they are not “scientifically recognized?”

If a patient would insist on chemotherapy of corporate medicine, for which a patient is a renewable source of income, and prefers allopathy over natural healing from cancer, then, I believe, the patient should insist on such a sensitivity test and choose the chemo that is effective and will shrink the tumor, as the patient wants only that to happen, without understanding what the function of the tumor is. Instead of asking “does chemotherapy make sense at all”, testing to determine which chemotherapy is the most successful (for the intended aim) and  even asking how meaningful will the result be, is key! A patient is entitled to this determination and to his/her own choice.

Tamoxifen docks on receptors and changes the receptors

And there is another problem which also has to be investigated adequately, states Lothar Hirneise [3]. It is known that Tamoxifen docks on receptors. However, because Tamoxifen does not fit into the receptor 100%, the receptor changes slightly. This could result in the receptors becoming immune to the body’s own natural hormones. That is clearly physical damage!

This phenomenon has also been observed for a long time for other (chemical) medications. It shows that by taking ‘chemical medications’ we disturb our natural functions and that the body functions decline. I personally believe it is more important to search for natural treatment and natural remedies to keep our natural body functions in tact and healthy.

An alternative for Tamoxifen

An alternative for Tamoxifen could be I-3-C (Indole-3-Carbinol). Indole-3-Carbinol is produced by the breakdown of the glucosinolate glucobrassicin, which can be found in relatively high levels in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, collard greens and kales. It is also available as a dietary supplement. Indole-3-carbinol is the subject of on-going biomedical research into its possible anticarcinogenic, antioxidant, and anti atherogenic effects. In my opinion this is for women who have no confidence in the healing power of their body, are afraid to do nothing and need something to hold-on to something that they believe, can heal them from the outside in.


Arimidex is an Aromatose inhibitor. In women after menopause estrogens are primarily produced in increased amounts in fat cells. Aromatose inhibitors can prevent this natural production, and consequently are often prescribed for older women.

In the 2002 ATAC study involving 9366 women, it was shown that Arimidex had significantly fewer side effects than did Tamoxifen, however no significant advantages were shown relative to survival time, states Lothar Hirneise [3] (page 223). This much discussed study was executed and evaluated by the manufacturer of both ‘medications’, Tamoxifen and Arimidex: AstraZeneca. One can conclude that this scientific research was not independent.

I wonder whether doctors, who prescribe Tamoxifen and/or Arimidex/Femara are aware of the bias that the ‘scientific’ results may have, showed by pleasing the financer of the research.
