id you know that estrogen dominance and the enzyme TOR are major contributors to increased rates of cancer, obesity, acne, and aging in both men and women?
Estrogen pollutants are surrounding us!
In America and Europe, excessive amounts of steroid hormones are coming from animal livestock metabolism. For example, even if cows are raised to obtain organic milk or have not been injected with added hormones, their inherent animal metabolism releases massive amounts of estrogens into our environment and food supply. Every year 82 tons of estrogen are being dumped by livestock into land and water across the USA and Europe. Cattle and poultry in the US are worse polluters because ranchers in this country are permitted to inject additional hormones to force abnormal growth. Thus, they increase food production. Animal waste contributes 90% of the total estrogen in the environment. These estrogen and other hormone pollutants increase the rate of acne, prostate cancer, breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
A glass of milk or a small amount of cheese gives 150 times more estrogen exposure than water. Farlow and investigators found eight estrogen metabolites and seven other sex steroid hormone metabolites in milk. Surprisingly, nonfat milk and buttermilk were found to have the most harmful concentrations of estrogens when compared to whole milk.
Polluting The Youth
xcessive concentrations of estrogen are exposing our sensitive children to sex steroids. When compared with environmental xenoestrogens, our children are exposed to 10,000 times more potent estrogens because of meat, poultry, dairy milk, yogurt or cheese, and eggs. This exposure can increase the incidence of testicular, breast, and prostate cancer, genital abnormalities in boys, and precocious development in girls.
Cows pollute our environment with dangerous estrogens, but they are also detrimental to our health for another reason. We as humans are not meant to drink cows’ milk, and when we do, we can be affected by multiple diseases.
Acne is epidemic in western countries. It affects over 85% of teenagers and nearly half of over- 30-year-olds still have acne. Acne may be a warning of future prostate cancer, breast cancer, and premature aging. Why? I believe the research will reveal that dangerous enzymes in animal products and estrogen analogs initiate and compound acne. Meat, chicken, fish, eggs, cheese and cow’s milk have an enzyme called TOR-C1 that acts as an endocrine signaling substance that worsens acne and initiates and fosters the progression of prostate cancer. Over 5,000 medical journal studies in the last ten years have found some shocking associations to diseases, including a serious connection to acne and certain forms of cancer.
The TOR Enzyme
is an enzyme that functions as a master regulator of cellular growth and proliferation. TOR tells cells to grow. Since TOR is in cow’s milk and not in human milk, when we drink cow’s milk the TOR is telling our cells to grow, grow, grow. It is frightening to realize that a majority of the youth who live in Western countries exhibit acne, but individuals living in non-Westernized regions (Kitava for example) are not affected by this disease.
Perhaps acne is not a physiological phenomenon of puberty, but it is a visible indicator of overstimulation by dairy, junk food, meat, and egg products. All of these foods work together against us by raising the enzyme TOR, contributing to acne and obesity.
Back in 2005 it was found that the medication Rapamycin inhibits TOR. This drug used for kidney transplant patients was accidental discovered to also completely reverse a type of skin cancer called Kaposi’s sarcoma within three months. Remember that milk also releases massive amounts of harmful estrogens into the human food chain. Milk is launching a two-pronged attack that is worsening acne and the risk of cancer.
There is a Solution
ortunately, plant-derived inhibitors can render this dangerous TOR enzyme harmless. These “Good Guy” enzyme inhibitors are in Estro Block and DHT Block (extracts from broccoli); LivDtox also has turmeric to combat TOR and the risk of cancer. Include in your diet healthy amounts of grapes, onions, strawberries, blueberries, mangos, green tea and the skin of cucumbers to provide additional protection against acne and cancer. Eating more vegetables and fruit in place of animal products will also reduce your calorie intake, further reducing TOR and cancer. According to researchers at Johns Hopkins, acne may be a warning sign of future risk of breast cancer or prostate cancer.
Here is how you can detoxify these harmful estrogen steroids: increase your consumption of plant protein based diet foods. For tasty recipes see the cookbook Simply Healthy, written by Dr. Nick Delgado which is soy free, gluten free, dairy free, meat free, all proteins are obtained from quality sources of sweet potatoes, beans, peas, brown rice, green, yellow vegetables and fruit. A Simply Healthy Diet higher in vegetables and fruit and free of dairy and meats using plant-based proteins can be used to suppress TOR which can prevent acne and other more serious diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
If you want to consume milk, use almond or rice milk to avoid the unnecessary exposures to harmful estrogens and other hormones. Also be sure to use the best supplements with the highest concentration of absorbable phytochemicals such as DIM, I3C to detoxify these harmful estrogens. Also take turmeric, astragalus to assist the liver to metabolize out of your system the byproducts of estrogen toxins. Take DMG, TMG, and the absorbable form of folic acid (5MTHF), methyl cobalamin (B12) to provide methyl-donors to complete the cleansing process.
