Excellent and welcoming and I look forward to continuing! It’s what I feel has been missing after my surgeries and all the doctor visits. Thank you!

“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section. People get some nutrition, stress management, and exercise guidance but virtually no information about toxins and their impact.”

“I love that this course provides participants with evidence-based information and concrete tools for living a happier and healthier life, even while coping with a cancer diagnosis.”

Breast Cancer and the Environment: What We Know & What You Can Do

Watch Our On-Demand Webinar

 

It is a shocking fact that one in eight American women (and around one in 800 men) will develop invasive breast cancer at some point during their lives. We are excited to host Sharima Rasanayagam, PhD, Director of Science for Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP) for this informative webinar on the ways environmental factors influence the development of breast cancer. For 25 years, BCPP has worked to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to radiation and toxic chemicals (many of which are found in common, everyday products) linked to the disease.

During this webinar, Dr. Rasanayagam will discuss:

  • The link between environmental exposures and breast cancer
  • The exposures that science indicates we should be most concerned about
  • Concrete steps we can take to reduce our individual exposures
  • How we can work to make our communities and environment safer for all
