Just found out Capaxone may have caused my cancer

Postby newlife2heaven » Sat Mar 17, 2012 6:30 pm

I have stayed on top of my breast because I found a lump when I was 19 years old. So I did self- examinations and had yearly mammograms. I was finally diagnosed with MS in 2009 and put on Capaxone. My insurance kept fighting over who was going to pay what, so I went without a mammogram for two years the same time I was taking the Capaxone. In September of 2011, I was told that not only was my MS active, but I had developed a new lesion on the spine and that I have a small amount of cancer in my breast. It took 9 years to find out what I had. I eat well and take very good care of myself. Should I take this as "it just happened"? I think not! Breast cancer is not in my family, I don't smoke, where did it come from if it didn't come from Capaxone? I am angry but glad I know now that there is a reason I have cancer. Now they got me to deal with !

Newlife – I have recently read a few articles that connect cancer, in general, to visceral (internal around the organs) fat. This fat produces chemicals that poison parts of the body.

Also, excess insulin is necessary to store fat. One of the components of insulin is growth factor – it MAY not be Copaxone, but it could be the chemicals from fat OR the excess insulin that causes cancer… possible? I don't know how we prove which one is the culprit. Maybe there is a researcher somewhere looking at this very question.
