America’s Cancer Clusters: Does Where You Live Matter?

Cancer _______(fill in with your choice of word(s) here).  You may choose something like Schmancer – articulated in a distinct, Fran Drescher-esque accent.  Or, you may be thinking more in terms of a strong profanity?  If you have been personally affected by cancer, then you know all too well…cancer rates today are inexcusable.  Gone are the days of blaming the majority of cases on genetics.  So, what actually is going on in the U.S. and what do the products you use {and trust} and have to do with it?  Surprisingly, this and where you live have more effect than you may realize!  And, don’t you agree it’s time to trash this nasty disease once and for all?

  • In 2012, there were 1,638,910 total new cases of cancer in the United States
  • Environmental factors account for an estimated 75%-80% of cancer cases and deaths in the US
  • 1 in 4 deaths are caused by cancer; making it the 2nd leading cause of death in the US
  • Less than 2% of chemicals manufactured or processed in the US have been tested for carcinogenicity
