Toxic Heavy Metals & Risks for Cancer
Presenters: David Zava, PhD, and Theodore Zava
Date: October 26, 2015
This 1-hour educational lecture will focus on cadmium and its relationship to breast cancer. Studies on the molecular mechanisms of cadmium suggest its cancer-inducing effects on reproductive tissues like the breasts and uterus are related to its unique actions as an estrogen mimic, or metalloestrogen.
The webinar also addresses:
- Diseases/conditions associated with exposure to high cadmium levels
- Why cadmium is considered a metalloestrogen, and its link to breast cancer risk
- Other essential minerals that help lower bioaccumulation of cadmium and other toxic heavy metals
