BCUK - #DitchTheJunk and reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals
Breast Cancer UK wants you to make a pledge to #DitchTheJunk, and in doing so reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals which may be linked to breast cancer.
From the harmful chemicals used in cosmetics and domestic cleaning products to the pesticides and preservatives that can be found in food and drink – many synthetic chemicals have been linked to a range of adverse health effects, including breast cancer.
We’re saying it’s time to DITCH THE JUNK……. A recent study, led by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, showed that it is possible to reduce our body burden of certain toxic chemicals - in as little as three days, simply by avoiding products known to contain them.
So join BCUK by making a pledge and tell us what you plan to ditch! More information available here.
