The Breast Views Blog: Primary Prevention of Breast Cancer

This morning I got a press release from my writer friend Liz Armstrong from StopCancerNow.org. It originally came from Women's Environmental Network: UK Working Group on the Primary Prevention of Breast Cancer.

This paragraph jumped out.

"Women have been sold the myth that breast cancer is normal and inevitable. It's not," says Diana Ward - primary author of The Case. "Breast Cancer is preventable, but Government and the cancer industry determinedly ignore the evidence. How much longer must we sit by and let this disease take more and more women?" says Ward."

Primary prevention is NOT treatment. Primary prevention focuses on reducing man-made chemicals and radiation that are major causes of breast cancer that get routinely released into our environment by out industry and sanctioned by our government.

Women expose the silence that kills

Something to chew on. Try not to choke.

It is 96 pages long.

Sue,
incidentally where did anyone get the idea that breasrt cancer is 'normal'? Clearly a defeatist attitude!
