I was invited to be part of an expert blogger panel podcast about breast cancer prevention sponsored by Luna Bar in conjunction with the Breast cancer Fund. They’ve created this fantastic site: Pure Prevention.
It was a fascinating and eye-opening call. You can listen to the call HERE. Some of the issues covered:
--What role does soy play in breast cancer?
--What are some the issues that may be flying under the radar regarding some potential causes of breast cancer?
--The Luna Bar/Pure Prevention campaign-what is it?
--For the babyboomers/menopause, how does the 50-pluser deal?
--What mini steps can we make immediately?
--Is there a dietary impact versus genetic impact on the incidence of breast cancer?
--Why is there a higher incidence of reproductive lumps and tumors in young women in this generation?
--What can we do about inflammatory breast cancer?
--How do we combat big biz and their stranglehold on manufacturing etc.?
My take away from the call [which again you can listen to HERE]: get rid of the plastics in my home [including using water bottles], and stop eating ANYTHING that’s been sprayed with pesticides. Immediately.
My question now is what do I do with all of the plastic stuff I have and the non-organic foods and dry goods? Throwing them away is simply wasteful but shouldn’t I start helping myself right now? Any ideas?
Regardless, please check out the Pure Prevention site and their prevention guide.
