Breast Cancer Fund announced in a Wednesday, December 11, 2013 eblast, its one-hour web chat, Breast Cancer and the Environment 101, on Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 7 pm EST. An excerpt from the eblast, “Need a primer on the basic science linking chemicals in the environment to breast cancer risk? Want to learn steps you can take in your everyday life to protect yourself, your family and your community from toxic chemicals?”
Breast Cancer Fund’s brief online description of the web chat: “Our Breast Cancer and Environment 101 presentation features our Healthy Home and Healthy World Tour, which present common-sense tips and advocacy actions for prevention based upon the evidence linking chemicals and radiation in our environment to breast cancer.”
For those that want to empower themselves with information about how to reduce one of the major relatively controllable breast cancer risk factors, this is the opportunity! The environmental causes of breast cancer are often ignored but there is evidence based research to support the information to be shared, discussed and currently applied by many proactive people.
The link above is to register; once registered, for those unable to attend live, registration also allows Breast Cancer Fund to send a link to the recording. For those able to attend live, be prepared to ask questions as Breast Cancer Fund wants this forum to be where people will not only be made aware and educated but be empowered to make immediate lifestyle changes to reduce the environmental causes of breast cancer in their lives.
Breast Cancer Fund’s tagline is, “Prevention Starts Here.” Their appeal is, “Help us to expose and eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. Together we can stop this disease before it starts.” Their position is, “Your partner in the prevention of breast cancer.” The Breast Cancer Fund website is inviting, interactive and informative. Take a look around!
