"A marvelous bookintelligent, 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Supported by a wealth of scientifically documented, medically sound information, this ground-breaking book outlines the unpublished "Dirty Dozen" risk factors for breast cancer and describes in detail the ways you can avoid them.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."
