How Can You Reduce Breast Cancer Risk

Breast cancer is the most common form of invasive cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women after lung cancer. Although genetic and lifestyle factors play a role in breast cancer risk, a growing number of studies suggest a link between this deadly disease and everyday chemicals in our homes, personal care products, our food and water, our workplaces and in the environment.

“Wide-ranging data from human, animal and cell studies indicate that, collectively, this environmental soup of chemicals is impacting breast cancer rates,” says Janet Gray, a professor at Vassar College and science advisor for the Breast Cancer Fund, a group that advocates for identifying and eliminating environmental and other preventable causes of the disease.
