Our mission is to share the conversation about chemicals
in everyday products found on the grocery shelves that contribute
to breast cancer; empowering women to make safer choices to protect
their breasts during the most vulnerable periods of their lives.

Protect Our Breasts

1 in 8

Breast cancer is a disease that touches the lives of many. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the course of their lifetime.

everyday exposure

Research shows that exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals and carcinogens can lead to a breast cancer diagnosis later in life.

windows of susceptibility

Up through a woman’s first full-term pregnancy is a time when women are particularly vulnerable to these harmful chemicals. It is up to us to stop breast cancer before it starts.

🖤Did you notice ✨that✨ smell during your Black Friday trip to the mall? It’s nothing to sniff at (literally)! So as you plan the rest of your holiday shopping…let’s take a look.

So, what IS that Mall smell?! We think it’s mostly fast food and fragrance.

🍔 Fast Food? The Silent Spring Institute found PFAS in almost HALF of paper wrappers and 20% of boxes from 27 fast food outlets!! PFAS are used in packaging as a barrier for grease and other liquids, but they are known as “forever chemicals” for their persistence in the environment. PFAS are a possible human carcinogen and are linked to many other health issues in humans!

👃 Fragrance? We find everywhere, from clothes and cleaning supplies to cosmetics and personal care. The term “fragrance” hides a range of phthalates, which can account for ~4,000 chemicals of concern.

🛍️ Our advice is the same as your mom’s… we have food at home! Grab a snack before you go shopping and skip the stores you can smell from a mile away. Happy holidays!

🥡As sides are cooked, prepped, and stored for the big day, choose glass to avoid phthalates and other chemicals in plastic containers.
➡️Avoid microwaving in plastic which can increase migration of concerning chemicals into foods.
