206 - Breast Cancer & Our Environment: The Hidden Links
In this special episode of the Clean Living Made Easy Podcast, we illuminate a pressing concern: the intricate interplay between environmental toxins and breast cancer, a timely discussion during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Host Jessica Brennan embarks on a thought-provoking exploration, uncovering a sobering statistic—approximately 1 in 8 women now face a breast cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, a significant rise from 1 in 20 in the 1950s.
The episode delves into the concerning surge in breast cancer rates and how environmental toxins, such as plastics and air pollution, are significant contributors. These ubiquitous toxins, often disguised in everyday products, have the potential to disrupt hormonal systems and trigger hormone-related cancers like breast cancer. However, amidst these challenges, we bring hope to the conversation by discussing sustainable alternatives and eco-friendly choices. These mindful decisions can significantly diminish our exposure to these harmful substances, championing cleaner and healthier living.
As Breast Cancer Awareness Month unfolds, we're thrilled to announce a special initiative. Every purchase from Beautycounter this month will contribute to a donation made to breastcancer.org and also, you have the chance to make a donation for Jessica's yearly Pouches with a Purpose annual fundraiser. Every donation contributes to providing pouches filled with uplifting items for women undergoing breast cancer treatment. It's a small gesture that can profoundly impact the lives of those courageously fighting this battle.
Additionally, the episode addresses a pressing question from a listener, highlighting the crucial links between plastics and various health issues. Join us as we dissect alarming statistics, interpret the science, and unveil practical strategies to shield ourselves and our communities. Together, let's navigate towards a toxin-free future, championing a world where awareness, informed choices, and a collective commitment to clean living take center stage.
