Take Action!

If we stand by and do nothing, nothing will change.  People will continue to be bombarded by more than 80,000 chemicals every day, the majority of which have never been tested for human safety.  Of those that have been tested, the vast majority were found to cause cancer and numerous other diseases.

It shouldn't take hours of toxin research before buying groceries and skin care products, purchasing toys and household items.  These things should be safe before they are sold, but they're NOT!  Policy makers have a shameful legacy of inaction that we MUST put an end to.  You have a part to play.

Each and every person is capable of being an activist:

* Talking to friends and family
* Regularly contacting your representatives in Congress
* Writing school reports
* Encouraging employers to get involved
* Organizing community members
* Using social media to educate others
* Sharing your expertise
* Contacting the media
* Participating in boycotts/protests
Overall encouraging others to focus on the issues at hand

Large or small, we each have a part to play,
and collectively we can change anything.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
~ Theodore Seuss Geisel ~ (Dr. Seuss)
We simply cannot keep looking away because it is too sad or too unbelievable or too overwhelming!!

  We must step out of our safety zone and face this beast!!  

We cannot continue to quietly participate in our own poisoning!  We must join together, BREAK THE SILENCE and demand CHANGE we can LIVE with!

These are a few resources for educating and advocating for real change in the way we 'treat' and prevent cancer.
