October is Cancer Awareness Month. 51% of all cancers are environmental, an astonishing new statistic. At Green Woman Store, we believe it’s important to increases our awareness of the environmental causes of cancer — to expose and explore the growing evidence of cancer’s environmental connections.
We interviewed Kristi Marsh, a Breast Cancer Warrior and a Rockstar Advocate! She was diagnosed with aggressive Stage 3 Cancer, and has become a nationally recognized advocate for women’s environmental health. She also wrote a book, “Little Changes” sharing what she learned and steps she took that can help us all deal with toxins in our home, environment, and personal care products — and preventing environmental cancer.
“In 2007, I just wanted ‘just’ to build a better body for my children and myself and it was books that filled my mind. It was books I turned to when I had no more than two people in my life talk about things like endocrine disrupters or GMOS. Too afraid to think everyone else would observe me as woo-woo, out there, or maybe on a crazy post chemo warpath. At the time, I had so many questions and no answers. I had frustrations and few options. And even less options that were hopeful.” Little Changes, 2014 Evergreen Gold Medal Winner!
Preventing Environmental Cancer with Kristi Marsh – Protecting Those You Love. LISTEN TO OUR INTERVIEW HERE
When Kristi was diagnosed, she had 3 children at home. She started with a spreadsheet full of facts about toxins that cause cancer.
In Kristi’s interview and in her book, she shares woman to woman, the “Little Changes” she made that help us move through the emotions of dealing with toxins in our home, environment, and personal care products. We’re all advocates when we share articles, books, emails, etc., with our friends, family and colleagues. Advocacy is something women do naturally, because we care.
In Kristi’s case, advocacy also means marching on City Hall and Washington D.C., bringing the attention of the press, elected officials, and mainstream women to these issues.
Kristi will encourage you in small meaningful ways to become a role model for others and an advocate for a healthier environment. The good news she shares is that you don’t have to do this alone. She shares tools, resources, and lessons she learned from her journey from mainstream mom to advocate and educator. She assists us all in creating not just a healthy home, but a better world.
