Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Olivamine10Olivamine10TM was designed and invented by Dr. Darlene McCord, a breast cancer survivor, to help in her own battle with this devastating disease.  Olivamine10TM is designed to turn on the body’s natural healing mechanisms through the use of potent antioxidants that can protect cells from damage.  The blend is based upon the biochemical healing properties of the olive with supporting and synergistic amino acids, vitamins, and nutrients.  Adequate nutritional support is vitally important for those who are at risk of breast cancer, currently diagnosed, or undergoing treatment.  The Pinnaclife Olivamine10TM Supplements can provide your body with the nutritional support it needs to thrive, especially in times of illness.

Rates of breast cancer over time  

From the 1940s until the 1980s, the rate of new cases of breast cancer (called incidence) in the U.S. increased by a little over one percent each year. In the 1980s, incidence rose greatly (likely due to increased mammography screening), and then leveled off during the 1990s.

The incidence of breast cancer declined in the early 2000s [38]. Although mammography screening rates fell somewhat over this same time period, studies show these changes were not likely related to the decline in breast cancer rates [40-41]. The decline appears to be related to the drop in use of menopausal hormone therapy (postmenopausal hormone use) that occurred after the Women’s Health Initiative study showed its use increased the risk of breast cancer and heart disease [38,40-42].

Since 2005, the incidence of breast cancer has remained stable [38].

Mammography and rates of early detection over time

As mammography screening rates have increased, more cases of breast cancer have been found at earlier stages, when chances of survival are highest.

During the 1980s and 1990s, diagnoses of early stage breast cancer, including ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), and conditions such as lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) increased greatly. Since the late 1990s, these rates have increased slightly. At the same time, diagnoses of advanced stage (metastatic) breast cancer have remained stable [39].
