Let’s focus on breast cancer prevention, not awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I agree with the Breast Cancer Fund that it’s time to move beyond breast cancer “awareness” to prevention.

The BCF has breast cancer prevention campaign that urges women to:

  • Eat and live better by eating fresh organic food, hormone-free meat and dairy, and non-toxic seafood.
  • Protect your family from toxic chemicals in plastics, cookware, toys, baby bottles, and child cups.

See the BDF’s “Chemicals and Radiation Linked to Breast Cancer” for more information.

Criticism of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with its pink ribbons and questions about where the donation money goes, is increasing. See these articles for more information:
