Honoring World Cancer Day & Stand Up to Cancer

This Friday marks World Cancer Day. So many wonderful doctors and researchers work tirelessly to find a cure for a disease that has taken the lives of so many people and, according to the World Health Organization, is the leading cause of death around the world.

Until we find a cure, let’s talk about what each one of us can do to try to avoid the “Dreaded C.” We all know not to smoke, eat a healthy diet, and exercise. But, let’s dig a little deeper. The Environmental Protection Agency warns us that many of the pesticides and other chemicals we use on our agriculture are known, likely, or probable human carcinogens. Eating organic and buying clothing made from organic cotton reduces the amount of these toxins.

We all know someone whose life has been changed by this disease. We salute our friends at Stand Up to Cancer for their efforts to bring together the world’s foremost cancer researchers, encouraging collaboration over competition.
