The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

WoW FirstGirl, firstly, emoticon for the thoughtful replies. Secondly, emoticon on your 11 yr survival from breast cancer.

I never said there was co-morbidity though. In 2006 I remember an article that said low B vitamins were associated with breast cancer, but other than that I had the same information as you shared (below) when I searched around a bit.

I was asking for a friend. I know there are a lot of different types of cancer, and this person would like to look at alternative as well as mainstream as she'll likely incorporate both to be safe. There is A LOT of information on the bookshelves, so I was hoping others may have some go-to references from experience. (I didn't want to join another team - lol).

I would like preventative info though, now that you mention it, and if you have it!

Well, I would like to thank Dots for calling to my attention that there is new research on the co-morbidity between breast cancer and celiac since I was doing most of my research over a decade ago. New studies since 2002- 2004 seem to indicate that there actually may be a somewhat protective factor vs. breast cancer in those persons who have celiac, particularly if they were diagnosed as children. Here's an actual quote from a med journal; there are lots of similar studies cited in Medscape and PubMed.
Gastroenterology. 2002 Nov;123(5):1428-35.
Cancer incidence in a population-based cohort of individuals hospitalized with celiac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Studies of cancer risk in celiac disease (CD) or dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) indicate increased risks for malignant lymphoma and occasionally other neoplasms, but are characterized by small numbers, lack of systematic cancer assessment, and subjects identified from referral institutions.

METHODS: By using Swedish population-based inpatient and cancer registry data, we followed-up 12,000 subjects with CD or DH, and evaluated cancer incidence by using standardized incidence ratios (SIR).

RESULTS: Adults (but not children and adolescents) with CD had an elevated overall risk for cancer (SIR = 1.3) that declined with time and eventually reached unity. Elevated risks were found for malignant lymphomas, small-intestinal, oropharyngeal, esophageal, large intestinal, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic carcinomas. The excess occurrence of malignant lymphomas was confined to adults, decreased with time of follow-up evaluation, and decreased over successive calendar periods. Decreased risks were found for breast cancer. Subjects with DH had a slightly increased overall cancer risk (SIR = 1.2) owing to excesses of malignant lymphoma and leukemia, but no increases of gastrointestinal carcinomas.

CONCLUSIONS: Albeit increased, the relative risks for lymphomas and gastrointestinal cancers in this study are lower (and declining) than in most previous reports. The overall cancer risk is only moderately increased, and nonelevated during childhood and adolescence.

Yeah I am interested in the co-morbidity too! My mother died at 50 years old from breast cancer...and had Celiac disease. Neither one of us were diagnosed with the Celiac disease until our 30's either.

Dots I am not sure what you are looking for either...I don't really have any websites in mind though. I was too focused on the physical care and insane amounts of appointments to really research much at the time.

I am curious to find out more info on the "large co-morbidity factor between coeliac disease and breast cancer" that you mention. I am an 8 year survivor of Stage 1!

I am an eleven year survivor of Stage 1 Breast Cancer. Currently, I am involved in starting a local support group for female cancer survivors. There are many sources of information about Breast Cancer. If you can post what types of information you are seeking, I would be more able to direct you to web sites, etc., that might be of interest and help. For example, are you more interested in prevention, treatment, or aftercare? Alternative or mainstream treatment, or integrated treatments? Are you the cancer patient, or are you interested in help for a loved one or friend?

Your local library can also help; just make sure any books or articles are published within the last two years. Research changes breast cancer treatment rapidly. Hope to hear more from you. I just signed on today to the GF Team. There is a large co-morbidity factor between coeliac disease and breast cancer, so staying GF is a good place to start if you know this is a health issue for you or your loved ones.

If you've had breast cancer, know someone who has/had breast cancer, can you tell me your experience and what you learned, and from where did you find the most helpful information.
