Funding Cuts Lead to Shut Down of Program on Environment and Breast Cancer

I was sad to get a notice in my inbox yesterday that the Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors at Cornell University has lost it’s funding.  The program has been providing science-based information on environmental factors and breast cancer risk for 14 years.  They have produced excellent videos and fact sheets on many  environmental factors and breast cancer risk.

Their website will be available for just a few more months.  They encourage anyone interested in these topics to download any of their fact sheets, newsletters,  or other materials, as they won’t be available in the future.  Topics include household products, pesticides, smoking, obesity, fruits and vegetables, estrogen, chemicals in the workplace, and many, many more.

If you have any interest in the environment and breast cancer, check it out before it’s too late.
