    Many people are surprised by the extent of our work with young people.

    Indeed, our Youth Program has many branches. We work with university students who support our mission and want to organize events on campuses with us to educate other students and the public on our work. We work with community groups that work with young people offering our workshops on health and the environment and/or leading DIY activities (Do It Yourself activities making homemade personal care products).

    And now we work with high school students offering our innovative program, Health Connections: Young People Connecting with their Environment and Communities.

  • 25 years of action and we need you more than ever

    We have the most extraordinary members and donors.

    Some of you have been supporting this organization from the very beginning. Others have more recently learned about us. Many young women have become members this year. They don't necessarily have personal experience with breast cancer, but they know something is profoundly wrong with our environment and that it impacts our health directly.

    With all the work we are doing, we need you more than ever. So we ask you to please consider supporting us this December with a donation. You can also offer a donation as a gift to someone you care about and they will receive an ecard of your choice.

  • Scientific Panel Presentations

    Our 25th Anniversary Panel of researchers on endocrine disrupting chemicals, held on October 26, 2016 in Montreal, inspired an audience of both young people and long-time members.

    Watch three powerpoint presentations with audio from the live presentations.

  • The Ravages of the Other Chemo

    Currently, our approach to prevention consists in making people feel guilty by saying that their lifestyle habits are the key to preventing cancer and other illnesses while we let food, cosmetic, argicultural, chemical and oil companies introduce tons of toxic substances into our environment.
