What Breast Cancer Prevention Means to Beautycounter.

With October come cooler weather, Halloween candy, and a deluge of pink ribbons signaling National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While you’ll find the symbol on everything from cocktail shakers to cosmetic products, the most important message—that of prevention—often gets short shrift. We think the conversation needs to shift, starting now.

If you’re wondering how to prevent a disease that seems so tied to family history, it might shock you to learn that only half of breast cancer cases can be tied to traditional risk factors like genetic inheritance, diet, and reproductive history.

Increasingly, science is pointing to environmental links to this disease. In 2010, the President’s Cancer Panel found that the true burden of non-genetic, environmentally induced cancer has been “grossly underestimated,” and a recent project by 300 international scientists concluded that even chemicals that are not carcinogenic on their own may be linked to cancer when used in combination with each other, even in very low doses.
