New State of the Evidence Available Online Now
Help us keep the momentum to move beyond awareness to prevention!
You’re the first to know: Today we release the 2010 edition of our landmark report, State of the Evidence: The Connection Between Breast Cancer and the Environment!
  View State of the Evidence online at http://www.breastcancerfund.org/media/publications/state-of-the-evidence/.
What emerges from the latest scientific research is a clearer picture than ever of how exposures to chemicals and radiation affect breast cancer risk:
• We’ve long known there was a link between bisphenol A (BPA) and breast cancer, and the latest research only strengthens our understanding.
• We suspected chemicals commonly used as flame retardants may be linked to breast cancer, and new science is building the case against these chemicals.
• We’ve said for many years that medical radiation exposure should be minimized, and new studies indicate we should be particularly concerned about CT scans.
The good news is, we’re working every day to translate this science into action that reduces breast cancer risk for you and for all women.
We use State of the Evidence as a roadmap that shapes our public education and policy work. You and your family can use the report as a guide for making practical, everyday changes that can reduce your chemical exposures. You can also act for change by plugging into the Breast Cancer Fund’s work to make prevention a public health priority.
With your support, the Breast Cancer Fund will continue to identify the environmental causes of breast cancer—and work to stop this disease before it starts.
This October, we’re at a tipping point, as more and more people understand it’s time to move beyond awareness to prevention.
