Breast Cancer and the Environment: State of the Evidence 2008

Mar 20, 2008

What is the connection between breast cancer and the environment? On Thursday, March 20 at 11am PT / 2pm ET, over 150 people joined CHE for a discussion of the 2008 edition of the Breast Cancer Fund's State of the Evidence report, which was released on March 19, 2008. The report summarizes current evidence linking breast cancer and environmental contaminants.

Speakers included Dr. Janet Gray, Professor of Psychology at Vassar College, and Jeanne Rizzo, Executive Director of the Breast Cancer Fund. We will hear comments from Dr. Julia Brody, Executive Director of the Silent Spring Institute. The call was moderated by Michael Lerner, President of Commonweal.
