October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At Green Woman Store, we are advancing awareness about the environmental causes and steps you can take to prevent cancer and its recurrence.
New scientific evidence is emerging daily, making it clear that the chemicals in our environment play a role in altering our biological processes. It’s clear that our exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation are connected to our cancer risk. But we rarely hear about this new scientific evidence.
It is difficult to examine and address the effects of individual chemicals and their risks for a disease as complex as cancer. The time between exposures and development of the disease may be decades. We may not know which chemicals we’ve been exposed to, and we are not exposed to chemicals in isolation.
We invite you to sign up for our free Telesummit on Preventing Cancer. We Expose and Explore the Growing Evidence of Cancer’s Environmental Connection & Steps You Can Take to Help Prevent Cancer & Its Recurrence:
As an informed consumer, you can begin to control your exposure to chemicals and radiation through personal and political action. Get to know the chemicals that have been linked to cancer and take action to reduce your risk.
Here are some interviews from the Telesummit:
