Less than 5 percent of money raised for breast cancer research goes towards research into prevention?
Breast Cancer Action Montreal (BCAM) is a non-profit community group of women and men who are sensitized to the trauma of breast cancer. BCAM educates the public about environmental toxicants and their links to breast cancer, and advocates for stricter industry regulation and stronger government policy regarding toxic chemicals in consumer products that put women at greater risk for the disease. Our work aims to improve the quality of life for women with breast cancer now and to prevent or reduce its incidence for future generations.
BCAM wants the safety of cosmetics and personal care products to be improved and we provide information about dangerous ingredients so you can make informed decisions. BCAM offers opportunities for action as well as educational workshops about safe cosmetics for youth and adult audiences. Call to book!
BCAM's Bulletin is a lifeline to members, providing news of BCAM activities, upcoming events related to breast cancer, original reports on breast cancer, events, opinion pieces by BCAM members, book reviews, and more.
FemmeToxic's goal is to educate young Canadian women about the potential dangers of cosmetics ingredients and provide people with the tools they need to create personal change and to influence national legislative reform. Refuse to be “toxified”! Demand safer cosmetics!
