At Breast Cancer UK, we’re working hard to understand how we can prevent breast cancer. The more we know, the more questions we can answer, and the more breast cancer cases we can prevent.
Every 10 minutes someone’s partner, mum, sister, daughter or friend is diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. 1 in 7 women in the UK will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. But it is estimated that at least 1 in 4 of these cases could be prevented through lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise.
We’re the only UK cancer charity that focuses on all aspects of breast cancer prevention, including diet, lifestyle and exposure to harmful chemicals found in everyday products and the environment.
We fund ground-breaking animal free research and vital breast cancer prevention education and awareness campaigns, as well as campaigning to strengthen public health and environmental protections.
Our researchers are working to find out how breast cancer can be further prevented, so we can share the steps we can all take to reduce our risk of developing breast cancer.
With your support, fewer people will hear the words “you have breast cancer” and experience the devastating impact this disease brings.
