Protect Yourself from Breast Cancer by Reducing Pesticide Exposure

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) released an announcement today about male breast cancer discovered at Camp Lejeune, a Marine facility.

‘The water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated with a toxic brew of industrial chemicals including trichloroethylene, or TCE, a known human carcinogen according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Despite repeated warnings, the Marine Corps leadership took no action to protect their Marines and their families. Worse yet, many still remain unaware of their exposures. Today, Camp Lejeune has the shameful distinction of being the largest male breast cancer cluster ever identified – 73 men – and families who lived and worked on base are suffering from various rare cancers, chronic diseases and birth defects.’

What EWG didn’t mention was that the entire Midwest farming belt is often referred to as the ‘Lymphoma Belt’ due to the blood cancers that result from exposure to pesticides. Breast cancers can also be caused by pesticide exposure.

If you or a friend has been exposed to pesticides on a regular basis, by showering in water containing pesticides and drinking water with pesticides, then it is advisable to stop now and act. Check out my Urban Defender whole house water filter, the most effective system available to protect your family from pesticides as well as chlorine, chloramine, and their carcinogenic byproducts.
