What are the environmental causes of breast cancer?
What preventive steps can we take now?
What NIH funding can be leveraged?
On Wednesday, June 13th, join Find the Cause Breast Cancer Foundation, The Thoreau Club and Debra’s Natural Gourmet for an answer to these questions.
At the Thoreau Club's indoor center,
275 Forest Ridge Road,
Optional organic dinner 6 -7 PM ($20)
Free workshop 7:00-8:30 PM.
Prompted by Debra's Natural Gourmet and hosted by The Concord Club, Find the Cause Breast Cancer, a Boston-based foundation whose mission it is to fund scientific research on the environmental causes of breast cancer, is bringing researchers to Concord, Wednesday evening, June 13th.
These researchers will brief the audience on their work to identify what causes the disease in the first place and what they’ve learned thus far about the environmental causes of breast cancer.
“The incidence rate of breast cancer in the United States is three times what it is in Mexico and twice what it is in Japan,” Dr. David Sherr, a Boston University School of Public Health professor of environmental health, said. Sherr said 425,000 women living in Massachusetts today will get breast cancer, a state incidence rate that is 12 percent higher than the national average.
From 6-7 PM on 6/13/18, Debra’s Natural Gourmet’s kitchen is offering a Middle Eastern Feast before the workshop.
Organic, Non-GMO, gluten-free, happens to be vegan, and scrumptious!
Hummus, quinoa hemp tabbouleh, Change-Your-Life Crisps, stuffed grape leaves, kalamata olives, cucumbers with dill, coconut chocolate manna mousse bites, mint tea and dandy-blend beverage.
The cost of dinner is $20.
