Project Description

Breast Cancer Prevention Partners works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals linked to the disease. 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Most people don’t realize that only 10% of breast cancer cases are due to genetics and that a definitive body of science links the disease to chemicals in our environment. Our recipe for change:

  1. We start with the scientific evidence linking chemicals to breast cancer and connect the dots to exposures in our everyday lives.
  2. We educate the public about how to reduce their risk and advocate for laws that create systemic change.
  3. We change the market by increasing consumer demand for non-toxic products, lifting industry leaders who make safer products and holding industry laggards accountable who don’t.
  4. We work to enact public health policies that reduce chemical exposures to protect everyone.
