An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

When it comes to cancer, this old adage couldn’t be more true, and here at EWG we want to make sure you have all the tools available to reduce your risk of cancer.

A repost of the letter I received from Environmental Working Group; a great organization fighting the good fight for all of us. Please donate to them as they work to make our planet safer. 

"From BPA to lead and mercury, there are many potentially carcinogenic chemicals EWG has long recommended you avoid. Now, thanks to the groundbreaking work of the Halifax Project, we’re learning that certain combinations of these and other chemicals could cause cancer by disrupting multiple pathways and overwhelming the body’s defenses."

"EWG’s latest consumer guide highlights 12 of the worst chemicals that are known to disrupt cancer-related pathways and gives you tips on how to avoid them."

"You may be surprised by some of the chemicals that made EWG’s latest list. Take atrazine – a chemical so potent that male frogs exposed to low levels of it can turn into female frogs. It is also one of the most widely used herbicides in the U.S."

"Adopting a healthy lifestyle is key to reducing your risk of cancer, but cutting down on the number of toxic chemicals in your life is also critical to keeping you and your family healthy and cancer-free."
