Breast Cancer & the Environment: Prioritizing Prevention

"On October 8, 2008, Congress passed the Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Act   . The Act required the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to establish an Interagency Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Coordinating Committee (IBCERCC) of federal and nonfederal members to examine the current state of breast cancer and the environment research and make recommendations for eliminating any knowledge gaps in this area."

"The IBCERCC offers recommendations to highlight the urgent need for coordinated, targeted efforts to identify and mitigate the environmental causes of breast cancer."

Conclusion:
"Prevention is the key to reducing the burden of breast cancer."
