Good post Amy Swift!

There are many opportunities to eliminate unnecessary and preventable environmental exposures that either are suspected and or known to be linked to cancer.

Never before have we had more cancer.

This year 1.4 million people will be hearing the devastating news that they to have cancer. ��

Scientist tell us that 70-80% of all cancer is linked to the environment (as opposed to heredity); meaning that most all cancer comes from outside of our bodies. This of course reflects some behaviors to include smoking.

However, cancer is not an unlucky roll of the dice, but rather is manufactured.

Everyday more than 1,500 men, women and children die of cancer in the U.S.

This year two classrooms of children and or approximately46 school children every school day in this country will be diagnosed with cancer.

I think it can be different,I think we can have a world of lesscancer.

But beyond what I think- there is sound science and data that suggests it can be different. There can be less cancer.

While the cure can never be underestimated-we must expand our view of cancer to include prevention.

There are things we can do in our own homes, schools and work to remove and or reduce those everyday items we assume are safe.

We are in a place where all of us can make change with the choices we make.

As a pregnant lady myself, this blog submission turned my radar on high alert. I’ve known that your basic store-bought white lotion has chemicals that get absorbed by your skin. I’ve heard that shampoo’s with sulfates aren’t so good for you. I intuitively know that make up, with all its colors, must have something subversive going on to produce a red or blue that turns heads. But Ladies Who Launch member Rosemary Anthony lays it down and doesn’t mince words – simply put, there’s not too much room for confusion after reading this. The majority of beauty products out there spell danger. Maybe a good rule of thumb might be….if you can’t pronounce it, maybe you shouldn’t be using it? Huh, how revolutionary.
