Breast Cancer and the Environment: Prioritizing Prevention

ibcercc-reportOn Tuesday, February 12, 2013 the federally mandated Interagency Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Coordinating Committee (IBCERCC), released its report, Breast Cancer and the Environment: Prioritizing Prevention. This report is a call to action to develop a national strategy to increase research in breast cancer prevention with a focus on how environmental factors affect the development of the breast across a woman's lifespan and her risk of breast cancer. The report offers seven recommendations to highlight the urgent need for coordinated, targeted efforts to identify and mitigate the environmental causes of breast cancer.

Zero Breast Cancer is a proud member of IBCERCC and is pleased that many of the recommendations from the committee reflect our organization's 17 year mission to find the environmental causes of breast cancer through community participation in the research process. We will use the recommendations from this report to guide us as we continue to carry out our mission. Like you, we look forward to the day when we have an early preventative strategy for breast cancer.
