An hour of exciting, dynamic conversation supported by a wealth of experience and expertise. That is what happened earlier this week when top notch moderator Cindy Samuels brought together a group of influential bloggers to conference with Breast Cancer Fund’s Executive Director Jeanne Rizzo, RN, a nationally acknowledged leader in the field, and environmental health expert Dr. Janet Gray, editor of the Breast Cancer Fund’s newest State of the Evidence report and Professor of Psychology and Director of the Program in Science, Technology and Society at Vassar College. The Breast Cancer Fund published the landmark report State of the Evidence: What is the Connection between the Environment and Breast Cancer?, a ground-breaking report now in its fourth edition.
Pure Prevention is a joint effort of LUNA Bar and the Breast Cancer Fund, focused on bringing awareness and education about cancer prevention and treatment to women and men who want to (and need to) understand more about how what they eat, do and experience in their daily environment impacts their health and more importantly, the health of their children.
To listen to the full interview, visit the web podcast of the live conference (and you’ll hear some of the questions and answers that specifically are directed to the 50 plus market.)
Here are a few areas that engendered LOTS of discussion — environmental factors that are causing our young women to enter puberty at earlier ages than ever before; the types of environmental factors that ingested over a lifetime are causes for concern for the 50 plusser; discussions on the pill and Hormone Replacement Therapy on breast cancer; cosmetic ingredients and the type of advocacy role the Breast Cancer Fund undertakes…and much, much more.
This is an eye-opening, exciting discussion. I urge you to take a listen and also to visit and pass along the Pure Prevention website to others. An exceptional resource and one that we all need to support. Hats off to LUNA Bar and The Breast Cancer Fund for putting together a fantastic program.
