What the Pink?! Protecting the Breasts You Love
10:00 am US Eastern Time
Speaker presentation slides:
Karuna Jagger: Breast Cancer Action: Stop Breast Cancer Before It Starts!
Janet Ackerman: Identifying breast carcinogens: A new approach
Nancy Buermeyer: The Policy of Prevention
On this call, experts discussed the breast cancer movement, the science linking toxic environmental chemicals and breast cancer, and prioritizing prevention through policy reform. On this call we will explore a range of topics, including the importance of democratizing the science, a recent study conducted by Silent Spring Institute on a new approach to identify chemicals that raise the risk of breast cancer and the importance of reforming the country's outdated Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Our goal is to inspire you to make choices that eliminate contaminants linked to cancer from your home and community. We also hope you will join the many breast cancer prevention advocates across the country who are working for public policies to reduce the risks of breast cancer.
