No Family History : The Environmental Links to Breast Cancer, Hardback Book

No Family History : The Environmental Links to Breast Cancer Hardback

Part of the New Social Formations series

Hardback

Description

No Family History presents compelling evidence of environmental links to breast cancer, ranging from everyday cosmetics to industrial waste.

Sabrina McCormick weaves the story of one survivor with no family history into a powerful exploration of the big business of breast cancer.

As drugs, pink products, and corporate sponsorships generate enormous revenue to find a cure, a growing number of experts argue that we should instead increase focus on prevention-reducing environmental exposures that have contributed to the sharp increase of breast cancer rates.

But the dollars continue to pour into the search for a cure, and the companies that profit, including some pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies, may in fact contribute to the environmental causes of breast cancer.

No Family History shows how profits drive our public focus on the cure rather than prevention, and suggests new ways to reduce breast cancer rates in the future.
