MBCC's "Let's Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures"

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Come into our lobby and pick up materials provided by the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition. Its educational outreach program entitled "Let's Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposure" means to empower discussions between health professionals and patients regarding environmental exposures and chemicals of concern.

The Coalition has created a one-of-a-king booklet for health professionals that summarizes scientific evidence linking exposure and effect for many common chemicals of concern and suggests how to begin environmental health conversations with patients. The accompanying patient brochure (available in several languages) describes basic steps from individuals and families to reduce problematic exposures and choose safer alternatives to toxic products. The goal of the program is to reduce toxic exposures, which has implications for reducing the burden and cost of all environmentally-linked diseases.
