Targeting Tumors - Brain Health

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 2, 2016 7:35:06 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim & Winter Ninivaggi

Targeting brain tumors is becoming easier. Thanks to some new discoveries it is becoming increasingly possible to identify specific central nervous system tumors accurately to provide more targeted treatment. Precision diagnostics such as DNA sequencing, which is determining the specific nucleotides within each DNA molecule, and epigenetic analysis which is the study of changes distinct from DNA sequences.

The researchers as the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Vienna is one of the top medical centers in the world for diagnosis and treating this type of tumor. They are actively involved in the classification of CNS tumors.


More often then not, brain cancers are linked to environmental chemical exposure. I run a full environmental test panels to look for benzene, toluene and trichloroethylene levels.

Exposure to degreasers, cleaning solutions, paint thinners, paint, pesticides and resins all contribute to an increased risk of brain tumors.  Parents who work in the following industries: petro chemicals, car-related jobs, and remodeling/construction have higher risks of their children getting brain tumors.

Dad's who had regular exposure to benzene in the year before their child was conceived were more than twice as likely to have that child develop a brain tumor. Toluene found in inks, paints and petrol chemicals affect sperm cells and damaged DNA is passed to the developing fetus.  

Chemical exposure from the environment causes more than brain tumors. You can feel multiple symptoms and they can all be due to toxins from the world around you. Kick your total body burden and detox from all the chemicals your surroundings have put into your body.

Take back your health! Now is the time to prevent cancer before it happens.
