Breast Cancer UK

Objectives

Breast Cancer UK is dedicated to achieving the primary prevention of breast cancer by reducing public exposure to the carcinogenic and hazardous chemicals in our environment and everyday products.

Our vision

Our vision is a world in which the environmental and chemical causes of breast cancer have been eliminated so that fewer people have to live in fear, suffer the anxiety and trauma of diagnosis, treatment, illness and potential death which results from the disease.

 

Activities

Breast Cancer UK:

•    Campaigns to encourage a preventative approach by calling for improvements in legislation and public health policies which reduce our exposure to chemicals associated with breast cancer;

•    Raises awareness amongst members of the public about the links between exposure to harmful chemicals and breast cancers; and providing practical solutions to help reduce exposure

•    Supports scientific research into the links between breast cancer and exposure to carcinogenic, hazardous and endocrine disrupting chemicals.

We are entirely independent.  We don’t receive grants from Government or industry but rely on support from members of the public. Please support us and help us to prevent breast cancer.
