Description

The vast majority of breast cancer is caused by environmental factors from our food supply and our daily cosmetic products. Deodorants, sunscreens and makeup include toxic chemicals like parabens, formaldehyde, heavy metals, teflon and titanium dioxide. Many of these chemicals have been banned in the EU as they are carcinogenic and have been linked to many cancers, reproductive toxicity, endocrine disruption and irritation of the skin, eyes, nose and throat. Only the chemicals used to colour the cosmetics are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act, but other chemicals used in cosmetics don’t need official approval. A report done by the Environmental Working Group found women use an average 168 different ingredients and men use an average 85 different ingredients every day, leading to serious exposure of these dangerous chemicals. Our food supply is also full of chemicals and synthetic, unhealthy and processed ingredients that have adverse effects on our body, sometimes even causing irreversible damage. Keep-A-Breast Foundation’s Non-Toxic Revolution campaign educates and empowers young people to be in control of their own health by using non-toxic, vegan and cruelty-free products and eating fresh, organic and homemade food in their daily life.

Importance Importance

1 in 8 women in the US will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. With the majority of breast cancer cases caused by environmental factors, education on the effect of toxic chemicals has the potential to dramatically lower the rates of breast cancer diagnoses and breast cancer related deaths. The workshops allow many people to avoid using cancerogenic products and establish good lifestyle choices, while also actively creating a world where millions of women don’t have to constantly fear a breast cancer diagnosis. Prevention is the new cure.
