Today we’re highlighting our friends at the Breast Cancer Fund. Last week we had the honor of attending their Heroes Celebration Gala, marking 20 years of leading the way in identifying and eliminating the environmental causes of cancer.
Among their many awesome feats, the Breast Cancer Fund’s “Cans Not Cancer” campaign has recently succeeded in encouraging Campbell’s Soup to implement a BPA-free policy in their soup packaging. Why does that matter, you ask?
Exposure to BPA, used to make the epoxy-resin linings of metal food cans, has been linked in lab studies to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, early puberty in girls, type-2 diabetes, obesity and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Now that your chicken noodle will be sans-BPA, Mmm Mmm Good will be a whole lot Mmm Mmm Better! How rad is that? For more information about this campaign, read the full article here.
B4BC has raised funds for the Breast Cancer Fund throughout the years, but we are super stoked to enter into an official partnership with them in the coming months. More details on the way. In the meantime, head to their website to learn what you can do to curb your cancer risk!
