Join us for Breast Cancer Prevention Week 23 to 29 May 2022

Every year, around 56,000 women and 370 men hear the words ‘you have breast cancer’.

Sadly, not all breast cancer cases are preventable but at least 30% of breast cancer cases could be prevented through lifestyle changes.

It’s time to act to prevent breast cancer. Making small changes in your everyday life can help reduce your risk of breast cancer.

We’re here to help you do this.

Join our prevention movement today. Help make breast cancer prevention a reality.

Breast Cancer Prevention Week 2022 is focusing on the links between breast cancer and endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

Key facts about EDCs

They can enter our bodies and interfere with our natural hormones. They have been linked to many illnesses, including breast cancer.

EDCs can be found in many of the everyday products we use and the wider environment.

Reducing your exposure to EDCs wherever possible may help reduce your breast cancer risk.

Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are all around us which is why each day we will be visiting a different room in your home and garden, to show you how you can reduce your exposure to EDCs by making simple changes to your lifestyle, reducing your risk of breast cancer
