Did Mom Give You Testicular Cancer?

             Stu Kraft – Brother, Friend, Artist, Beloved Fisher

I dedicate this post to our brother Stu Kraft, a mountain man full of joy, talent, energy and life whose mother was a heavy smoker from the 1950’s until her death of lung cancer. Stu was born with reproductive system issues, and turned even that into art. He loved to make his friends uncomfortable by joking about his “monoball”, and once serenaded a large party with an impromptu and delightfully bawdy song about a sailor with one ball and the feats he manfully managed to perform. It turned out that Stu’s monoball must have been attacked in the womb by the hidden DDT in his Mom’s cigarettes, because when he was in his early 50’s monoball turned on him and killed him.

Researchers have long known there is a connection between smoking and testicular cancer. They just couldn’t explain what it is.

But when you examine a secret tobacco industry study from 1972 (see more below) then we can see that it’s more than just possible that a lot of 2019’s testicular cancer will arise from a genetic hit in the womb from the DDT in a mother’s (or grandmother’s) cigarettes in the 1960’s or 70’s. That genetic hit occurred because with every puff she was inhaling massive doses of hidden organochlorine pesticides.

Mothers weren’t being irresponsible by smoking in those days – many doctors even advised it. Mothers smoked because they believed it would help to keep their weight from getting out of control and to deal with the stress of Motherhood. Everybody did it.

Here’s How Mothers & Fetuses Were Exposed To DDT in the 1970’s

The problem with looking at DDT in Tobacco products is that all the DDT exposure studies ever done deal only with the health consequences of environmental exposure to DDT and ingestion in food or water. Nobody has ever studied the health effects of smoking pesticide contaminated tobacco products because the Tobacco industry knew about the problem and actively and completely suppressed that kind of research. It just hasn’t been done.  But DDT and other organochlorines have been there in heavy concentrations since 1955, and we now know that genetic damage caused by organochlorine pesticides is transgenerational, and targets specific parts of the genome in order to accomplish this stealth transmission of genetic disease.

Bottom line – if that mother or grandmother we referred to above was pregnant and smoking cigarettes between 1955-1980 she was without any question micro-dosing herself and her unborn child with DDT.

I referred to a confidential RJR report above. It’s from 1972, with all the original signatures, and reports on tests of DDT contamination of three RJR brands. All three brands show heavy contamination, and other research I’ve done shows that the entire tobacco product supply in the US in those days was loaded with enough chemicals to explain nearly all the smoking-related disease we see today.

If the anti-tobacco forces weren’t barely disguised Victorian moralists moralists, under the weight of factual evidence of pesticide contamination they would have to recognize that there is a legitimate question about whether it is actually tobacco that is responsible for all smoking-related disease and if not, what else is responsible and in what proportion? The fact is that there was DDT in every US cigarette in 1972, and that the sons of mothers born to mothers who smoked in those days are now known to be at high risk of testicular (and other) cancer in 2019. I’ll link you to peer-reviewed journal research on this below but first here’s a table summarizing the data on DDT in those three RJR brands in 1972. This is what millions of grandmothers of today’s middle-age men were inhaling. (BTW – this report only covered DDT – there were many other heavy organochlorine residues in 1972 cigarettes.)

Persistent organochlorine pesticides and risk of testicular germ cell tumors

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18445826

CONCLUSIONS:

Increased exposure to p,p’-DDE may be associated with the risk of both seminomatous and nonseminomatous TGCTs, whereas exposure to chlordane compounds and metabolites may be associated with the risk of seminoma. Because evidence suggests that TGCT is initiated in very early life, it is possible that exposure to these persistent organic pesticides during fetal life or via breast feeding may increase the risk of TGCT in young men.

Here’s Why Even Tiny, Steady Doses Of DDT Matter

Male Reproductive Health and Environmental Xenoestrogens

https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/doi/pdf/10.1289/ehp.96104s4741

Long-term exposure to small amounts of organochlorine contaminants leads to the accumulation of considerable burdens in animal and human tissues. It is therefore not the amount of DDT to which a mother is exposed during pregnancy that is critical but rather her lifetime exposure that will determine the level of exposure of the fetus and the breast-fed infant.

Here’s Evidence That This Is Happening Worldwide

Testicular dysgenesis syndrome: an increasingly common developmental disorder with environmental aspects: Opinion

https://academic.oup.com/humrep/article/16/5/972/2913494

This article summarizes existing evidence supporting a new concept that poor semen quality, testis cancer, undescended testis and hypospadias are symptoms of one underlying entity, the testicular dysgenesis syndrome (TDS), which may be increasingly common due to adverse environmental influences.

Experimental biological investigations and epidemiological studies leave little doubt that the TDS can be a result of disruption of embryonal programming and gonadal development during fetal life. As the rise in the incidence of the various symptoms of TDS occurred rapidly over few generations, the aetiological impact of adverse environmental factors such as hormone disrupters, probably acting upon a susceptible genetic background, must be considered.

While the focus of this post is on DDT and TDS, take a look at the pesticide contaminants that we just found in a sample of tobacco brands purchased off-the-shelf at out Portland-area minimarts, The first thing that stands out is the number of contaminants and – look at that – the cheaper the brand the higher the contamination and the worse the contaminants. In fact, the cheaper the brand the more Testicular disrupting/damaging chemicals there are – look at the Carbendazim in the Swisher Sweets. Combined with the action of DDT on Testicular tissues and hormones Carbendazim is equally well-documented as a male reproductive system poison and carcinogen.

Carbendazim is a broad-spectrum benzimidazole antifungal with potential antimitotic and antineoplastic activities. Although the exact mechanism of action is unclear, carbendazim appears to binds to an unspecified site on tubulin and suppresses microtubule assembly dynamic. This results in cell cycle arrest at the G2/M phase and an induction of apoptosis.

The point of this is to say that the brand of tobacco product your mother smoked matters more than just about any other factor in determining your risk of Testicular cancer as an adult. This means staying alert and getting checked often – which Stu did not do. I would end this with RIP, but there’s no way that “Tiny Ball” is laying around resting, wherever he is.

Natural Bolivian Coca Leaf Medicines

Readers of this blog know that I believe in the wisdom of the Indigenous Peoples of the Andes – “La Coca no es La Cocaine”.

This of course is not a clever slogan, but the truth. However since those of us who live in the North have been deprived of any knowledge of medicinal Coca for over a century, we have no way of finding this truth for ourselves. Not so in Peru, Bolivia and now Uruguay. The Bolivian company IngaCoca is the manufacturer of an extensive line of medicinal tonics and salves that combine the healing power of Coca Leaf extract with the healing power of a wide range of traditional medicinal herbs, many of them also not familiar to us in the North.

Several things stand out about the IngaCoca website and the products that this company produces. First, while the healing power of Coca takes the lead role in all of their preparations, none of the preparations are simply Coca extract. The Indigenous Peoples of the Andes are not mono-maniacs when it comes to the medicinal properties of Coca. They do not see Coca as a stand-alone cure-all – although in some cases this great plant comes as close as anything else in nature’s pharmacy to being a true panacea. So the products of IngaCoca always incorporate other, complementary medicinal herbs to form a complete healing solution for specific diseases and ailments.

Second, not a single one of IngaCoca’s products can possibly get you high – which is the excuse given by the USA and other authoritarian governments for banning trade in Coca Leaf. (By the way, IMO there’s nothing wrong with getting high, but Coca Leaf isn’t going to do it for you.) The products that Ingacoca produces are proof positive that there is a vast range of medicinal applications of Coca Leaf that have nothing to do with recreational drug use. This is unlike Cannabis, which opponents of Medical Marijuana frantically point out – “Well, OK – it might possibly be good for you but MY GOD – IT GETS YOU HIGH!!!!” Venemous idiots, of course, but Cannabis does give them an opening while Coca Leaf does not.

As I have pointed out elsewhere in this blog, you could not chew enough Coca Leaves, or drink enough Coca tea, to get anything more than a mild coffee-style buzz. Coca Leaf is not about having fun – unless you think that preventing or curing dozens of nasty diseases and conditions is fun – which I happen to think it is!

The last thing that strikes me about the curative tonics and salves produced by IngaCoca is how many of the diseases and conditions that plague Americans and Europeans are NOT addressed by any of their products. None of their products are designed to address killer diseases like Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, neurological diseases like MS and ALS, or Alzheimer’s, that carry away tens of millions of Northern Hemisphere dwellers every year, and that there is plenty of evidence could be prevented treated, or even cured by having access to pure, natural Coca Leaf.

After pondering this for a few minutes it occurred to me – IngaCoca doesn’t make these products because the people of the Andes don’t need them. In another post on this blog I took a look at the 50 leading causes of death in Peru and noticed that the diseases that are true plagues upon the People of the North are minor factors in Peru and, as I check the same database, the same is true of Bolivia. Sure there is some Heart disease – almost all in urban dwellers. There is Diabetes – also mostly among urban dwellers. There is also a very low incidence of Lung disease. And – most interesting to me – there is zero Dementia/Alzheimer’s. Nowhere in the 50 leading causes of death in the Andes.

Does that suggest something to you about our toxic environment, and most likely our industrialized food chain, in the North?

So, as you have probably noticed if you’ve already clicked through to the IngaCoca website, it is in Spanish with no English language option. After all, why would they bother since our government won’t let us have access to their products? So I have done my best to translate the website for readers of PanaceaChronicles, with apologies for any errors that my rudimentary Spanish may have caused. I have also annotated IngaCoca’s product descriptions whenever a medicinal herb is mentioned in the ingredients that most readers outside of the Andean region may not be familiar with. Some of these herbs are available in the US and Europe and have VERY interesting properties.

IngaCoca are pioneers, and deserve great credit for demonstrating conclusively that their national treasure is far, far more than the white powder that gives the governments of the world an excuse to make Coca Leaf illegal. We all understand that this is about protecting the global Pharmaceutical industry, and giving free reign to the Cartels and their Big Bank money launderers and co-conspirators, and to a few less obvious stakeholders like the anti-drug police bureaucracies.

Perhaps, in time and with increasing enlightenment of the people, a few legislators in the US or elsewhere will grow at least some tiny Cojones and do something about this farce which is actually a death sentence for millions of people whose interests they claim to care about. Without access to pure, natural medicines, and condemned to use only the toxic products of the greedheads who run Pig Pharma, that is exactly the result of the “War on Drugs” – mandatory death sentences for millions.

In the meanwhile I would like to encourage readers of this blog who live in countries that are enlightened enough to recognize the difference between Coca Leaf medicines and Cocaine to look into helping IngaCoca reach people in your country with its products. This seems to be to be not only a humanitarian effort, but quite possibly an excellent business opportunity.
