Recycle and Fight Breast Cancer
The National Breast Cancer Foundation estimates that one in eight women in the U.S. develops breast cancer every year.
Recycle to Keep Air Pollution Low and Fight Breast Cancer
Up to 64 percent of the cases are diagnosed at an early stage before cancer spreads outside the breast. Breast cancer is now one of the most common cancers in women in America, matching only the numbers of skin cancer. The fight is one and everyone has to stay vigilant to keep the rising cases of breast cancer.
What is Recycle For Breast Cancer (RFBC)?
At RFBC, we are concerned about the rising cases of breast cancer. We have reviewed numerous research papers and listened to interviews from cancer professionals. In most cases, environmental pollution gets the blame for most of the breast cancer cases. Doctors cannot tell exactly what causes breast cancer but environmental pollution is one if the risk factors and our goals is to keep that down through recycling.
Breast cancer, like other cancers, comes when there is damage to the structure of the DNA. This causes the cell to mutate and then there is an uncontrolled growth of the cell. Risk factors such as being in a family with a history of breast cancer and drinking alcohol have been blamed for breast cancer. Because you cannot control in which family you are born, you need to control factors such as air pollution and alcohol.
At RFBC, we sensitize people on the importance of recycling to reduce pollution and keep cases of breast cancer low. When the environment is clean and healthy, then the cases of breast cancer will reduce. Instead of disposing household items in the landfill, you can recycle them. This will not only save the world, but it can protect someone from developing breast cancer. Research shows that increased air pollution increases breast density. Breast density is one of the risk factors for breast cancer.
Research Doesn’t Lie
Outdoor air pollution and breast cancer are closely linked. According to research air pollution has links with a marker for breast tissue that is linked to rising cases of cancer. Scientists have cross-referenced the tissue marker with air pollution cases in different addresses in the U.S. From a sample of more than 1,900 samples, researchers concluded that air pollution is a risk factor for breast cancer.
The bulk of air pollution comes from industries and factories. However, there is still air pollution that comes from household and office wastes. As everyone waits for governments around the world to come up with policies to cut down on industrial air pollution, we have to help ourselves. Everyone can do their part in fighting air pollution through recycling.
When you recycle, you will not dispose plastics and other items in the landfill. You may also shop for plastics and other items less and this cuts down the industrial costs and pollution for producing such items. The less you go to the shop for plastics and other items, the less the industries will produce the items and the less the smoke. Sime tasks such reusing old bottles can help save the world and millions of women.
The fight is for everyone and RFBC is at the forefront to see the battle to the end.
