In response to the public health crisis of breast cancer, the Breast Cancer Fund (BCF) identifies - and advocates for elimination of - the environmental and other preventable causes of the disease.

Programs:

BCF has been successful in creating models for the nation that are designed to identify toxic exposures and to reduce toxic chemicals in our homes and neighborhoods. Our current program work includes: Organizing a national cosmetics campaign that focuses on targeting manufacturers that use known or suspected breast carcinogens in personal care products, pressuring them to remove these cancer-causing chemicals and replace them with safe alternatives. Making San Francisco the first city in the nation to adopt a landmark Precautionary Principle ordinance that seeks to protect public and environmental health. Sponsoring legislation to create the first-ever statewide program to measure the "pollution in people" so that we can take action to eliminate toxic chemicals from our bodies and our environment.

The Brain Cancer Fund is doing exceptional work by making prevention a public health priority. I applaud the efforts of the Breast Cancer Fund for making a real difference by focusing on big-picture solutions in efforts to sustain life. I am a firm believer in employing the precautionary principle because it is better to be safe than sorry.

The Breast Cancer Fund has focused for years on working towards eliminating environmental chemicals that are linked to breast cancer. Their State of the Evidence publication is a wealth of information. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics made the public aware of what toxic ingredients companies are using. As a lactation educator and breastfeeding advocate, I was involved with their efforts to establish a state biomonitoring program. This took 3 or 4 years of hard work, but it finally passed. I strongly believe in their focus on environmental toxins contributing to breast cancer. I appreciate their efforts to work towards our children not being exposed to chemicals through having safe toys and BPA-free products.
