Silent Spring Institute, Inc. Overview
SILENT SPRING INSTITUTE is a partnership of scientists and citizens concerned about potential environmental links to breast cancer. This collaboration began when activists from the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition questioned the elevated breast cancer incidence rates throughout Cape Cod and demanded a scientifically sound investigation. Silent Spring Institute is named in recognition of Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring, the pioneering work that documented the adverse effects that pesticide use has on wildlife. The Institute is working to answer questions about the environment and women's health. By focusing on the environment, we seek to identify preventable causes of disease.
