Monday, October 5, 2015: Selling Breast Cancer

"Hijacking the Breast Cancer Movemnent"

Breast Cancer Action website has a wealth of  information

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here again - and corporate-sponsored pink ribbons still don't provide women's health care. Listen to a portion of Kate Raphael's interview with Karuna Jagger of Breast Cancer Action about what's wrong with the whole concept of a breast cancer awareness. Click here for complete interview.

"Pink ribbons from their very inception have been a corporate marketing tool...Companies are actually doing harm through these pink ribbons promotions...Pink ribbon culture is not contributing to women's health." Jagger explains how.

Breast Cancer Action has helpful information on mammograms, screening, prevention, treatment, and resources for women of all ages, race and income levels. Breast Cancer Action does not accept money from corporate sponsors who benefit from or contribute to breast cancer.
