  • Because really its all about the $$ if the American Cancer Society really cared about people but women in particular-- they would show advertisements that for every 12 months of exclusive breast feeding in a womans life she reduces her risk of Br CA by 25%-- and so yes 4 (cumulative) years and you eliminate your risk even if you are gene +

    they would advertize that abortion increases your risk by 35%

    they would tell the truth that Vit D via responsible sun exposure is far better for you then sunblock and a pill (the stats dont lie) the ACS gets a lot of $$ from the paint companies (who produce 99% of your sun block ingedients)

    I could go on and on for hours
