Every year in the U.S., more than a quarter of a million people are diagnosed with breast cancer. Many of these people have no family history of the disease, which raises the question “What causes breast cancer?” Research increasingly finds environmental links to the disease, including exposures to fossil fuel-based chemicals.
Breast Cancer Action’s Why We Must Stop Fossil Fuels fact sheet which reveals the connections between the fossil fuel industry, breast cancer, and the devastating systemic problems at the core of it all.
These five accompanying sharable visuals that expose the fossil fuel industry for what it is—toxic! These infographics make clearer how every step of the fossil fuel continuum harms our communities and they visually link extraction, manufacturing and processing, and products and byproducts to our individual body burden. View and download PDFs of the Fossil Fuel Infographics, and spread the word about the fossil-fueled breast cancer crisis!
