Breast Cancer UK is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to preventing breast cancer by campaigning to reduce our exposure to the carcinogens and hazardous chemicals in our environment and everyday products.
Advances in early detection and treatment means that fewer people are dying from breast cancer, yet the number of cases in England has increased by 90 per cent since 1971.
Today, as many as one in eight women in the UK will experience breast cancer at some point in their lives. This increase cannot be attributed to lifestyle or genetic factors alone.
Cancer rates have soared since it became routine to add man-made chemicals to our household and personal care products, to the materials that come into contact with our food and drinks, and to release them into the environment as pollution.
Breast Cancer UK calls for tougher chemical regulation and for the health risks linked to chemical exposure to be addressed in Government policy.
Together we can help prevent breast cancer.
