Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

Can you get multiple myeloma (MM) on the job? Yes, but its complicated. Your job can increase your risk of a multiple myeloma diagnosis by exposing you to certain chemicals. But it is difficult to prove that exposure to chemicals caused your MM.
Have you been diagnosed with MM? I am a MM survivor and MM cancer coach. Please watch the short video below to learn more about the MM Cancer Coaching program that I researched and created based on my evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-MM lifestyle.
“Some people are genetically predisposed to cancer, while others increase their risk through lifestyle factors such as unhealthy diet, smoking and drinking.
But environmental factors, though smaller, can also play a role in the increase of your risk for cancer. According to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated that 19% of cancers worldwide are caused by environmental factors such as the workplace, causing nearly 1.3 million deaths yearly.
According to the WHO, there are as many as 107 classified chemical agents, mixtures and exposure situations which are carcinogenic (cancer-causing) to humans.
According to CANSA, the following chemicals are the most common in South African occupations:
These occupations were found to increase cancer risk:
1. Workers in the agricultural sector
Exposure to the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, but contact with pesticides and fertiliser can also significantly increase cancer risk…”
“Following the attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York, NY, on 9/11 (September 11, 2001), thousands of first responders were exposed to carcinogens in dust and gases. Since then, researchers have wondered about the possible impact on cancer rates.
Although some studies have found an elevated risk of multiple myeloma and other cancers in first responders, others have not. In the most recent and largest study to date, exposed firefighters had roughly twice the risk of developing multiple myeloma precursor disease as the general population…
Landgren says the study was triggered when physicians at his institution reported seeing aggressive cases of multiple myeloma in relatively young WTC responders. The researchers analyzed the 16 cases of multiple myeloma diagnosed among Fire Department of New York (FDNY) firefighters since 9/11. The median age at diagnosis was 57 years, roughly 12 years younger than the national average age at onset.
