Breast Cancer Prevention Speakers Advocate Personal and Political Action
A Manhasset breast cancer survivor braved poor driving conditions after a nor'easter on Tuesday night, Oct. 25, to hear speakers at the Port Washington Library discuss cancer prevention. Having just finished chemo and radiation this past June, she wanted to hear what to eat and drink to help stop a reoccurrence of cancer. However, the speakers spent only a few minutes out of an hour and a half discussing how to prevent cancer in adults. The topic of their presentation was primarily prevention of cancer in children because those tumors found in adults, they believe, started much earlier in a person's life. In fact, the speakers advocate that money and research should be directed towards prevention of breast cancer, not just a cure. They feel breast cancer is preventable and not caused primarily by genetics as widely believed. Cancer is caused by chemicals in what you eat and drink and also by chemicals in pesticides, plastics, cleaners, and many other commonly used substances, they stated.
