Facts That Might Surprise You

Only 1 out of 10 breast cancers has a known inherited genetic link.

Nine out of 10 breast cancer cases can be triggered and/or promoted by unhealthy lifestyle factors and environmental exposures including:
* obesity
* lack of exercise
* smoking
* alcohol consumption
* Unhealthy chemicals consumed through eating, drinking (many plastic containers used in packaged food and drinks can be harmful), breathing, and using personal care products
(including certain hair care products such as relaxers).

During the 10 years of breast development, a girl’s food, water, beverages, and air are the building blocks of their new breast tissue — the foundation of their future breast health.
