The Breast Cancer Story On Alternet

I've been thinking about it a lot lately... it was posted a few days ago, written by Lucinda Marshall:

There's now 95 comments below it... and for good cause, the author came right out and said it!
And I quote:

"... radiation is the only known cause of breast cancer in mice."

"... breast cancer map from Centers for Disease Control data identifies that within a 100-mile radius of nuclear reactors is where two-thirds of all U.S. breast cancer deaths occurred between 1985 and 1989."

"... pharmaceutical companies that manufacture breast cancer drugs fund the breast cancer NGOs, so they control the focus in the popular media on finding "the cure." They would be acting against their own best interests if they identified the cause."

"... mammograms are known to create five new cases of breast cancer for every case they identify."
Cosmetics companies associating themselves with Breast Cancer fund raising drives, should also concern themselves with the fact that many ingredients in cosmetics are known cancer agents, which are already being removed by law in certain countries.
California is the first state in the Union making the listing of ingredients mandatory for cosmetics. The governator passed that law, because as an actor, he understands its importance.
Interesting that radiation and cosmetics may turn out to be the number one cause of soft tissue cancers in the world, and that the anti-nuclear movement and the fashion industry would find common cause on this issue.
