With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month a campaign highlighting how women can prevent breast cancer has been launched. The campaign is called Pure Prevention. TreeHugger has a summary of the program as well.
In my opinion, there appears to be an increasing link between how we live and our health. This sounds obvious for things like obesity and heart conditions but the environmental and lifestyle link to cancer is gaining more prominence. The idea of a "green lifestyle" is about more than saving polar bears and sticking it to corporations. It's about living healthier today and not leaving a toxic legacy for future generations. We should be pursuing the best available ways to minimize our impact on the environment rather than finding excuses as to why things are not feasible. The solutions we have today may not solve all the problems but they are better than what we have been doing up to this point.
