"A marvelous book—intelligent, courageous, and practical." —Barbara Seaman, co–founder, National Women's Health Network What You Don't Know Can Hurt You. Breast cancer rates continue to climb, with this disease striking more women every year, and yet information about known risks and prevention strategies is not reaching you. The cancer establishment has a vested interest in keeping you focused on early detection, treatment, and basic genetic research rather than on reducing the risks for developing the disease in the first place. The truth is, breast cancer is not a random killer. There are many simple, straight–forward ways women can help protect themselves against it. Supported by a wealth of scientifically documented, medically sound information, this ground–breaking book outlines the unpublished "Dirty Dozen" risk factors for breast cancer and describes in detail the ways you can avoid them. "What a tremendous book, on every level." —Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients "All mothers should give this book to their daughters and granddaughters." —Eula Bingham, Ph.D., former Assistant Secretary of Labor, OSHA "This book is more than a remarkable study. It is a prescription that may save your life." —Studs Terkel "A comprehensive picture of probably all the factors in the home, the immediate area, the workplace and in food that have been linked with breast cancer… Full of stimulating ideas for action." —Helen Lynn and Ann Link, Women's Environmental Network Visit us online at http://www.mgr.com

Here for the first time: the truth about a woman's power to take charge of her health, to dramatically reduce her risks of developing a potentially devastating disease. Every woman does it every month: She examines her breasts, hoping not to feel a lump that could change her future in a profound, intimate way. Indeed, breast cancer is now the leading cause of death among women between the ages of 35 and 54, and even successful treatment of the disease often involves permanent disfigurement. Told by cancer establishment giants like the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society that prevention is not possible, most women follow the advice of these so–called experts, submitting to annual mammography and hoping for the best. In The Breast Cancer Prevention Program, Dr. Samuel S. Epstein and David Steinman expose just how wrongheaded this approach is. The truth is, breast cancer is not a random killer. There are many simple, straightforward ways women can help protect themselves against it. Supported by a wealth of scientifically documented, medically sound information, this groundbreaking book outlines the unpublished "Dirty Dozen" risk factors for breast cancer and describes in detail the ways to avoid them, including:
