Cans Not Cancer
The Breast Cancer Fund's Cans Not Cancer campaign aims to get BPA—an estrogenic chemical linked in lab studies to increased breast cancer risk—out of food cans. In partnership with our Advisory Committee, we're putting the pressure on manufacturers to replace BPA in their cans with a safe alternative that's not linked to disease.
Our Cans Not Cancer campaign is about your health, our children's health, and a safer future in which breast cancer rates have dropped because we've reduced our exposure to toxic chemicals. Join us!
