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:
- We start with the scientific evidence linking chemicals to breast cancer and connect the dots to exposures in our everyday lives.
- We educate the public about how to reduce their risk and advocate for laws that create systemic change.
- 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.
- We work to enact public health policies that reduce chemical exposures to protect everyone.
