"No Family History" Examines Toxins in Cosmetics

"No Family History" Examines Toxins in Cosmetics

Breast Cancer Awareness month is still a few months away, but combating the disease shouldn't be relegated to October alone. If you have a moment, you may want to check out the trailer for No Family History. The documentary (and accompanying book) explores the increase in breast cancer rates, emphasizing prevention over corporate think-pink campaigns. Like many environmental activists, filmmaker Sabrina McCormick believes that the chemicals we're surrounded by — including those in our cosmetics — are carcinogenic. Does the trailer make you concerned about what you might be putting on your body?

People have had cancer for a long time. Even before our century... Anyone with it would want a reason, an explaination, but sometimes it's a mystery why one person gets cancer or any other disease and another does not.

I do think the Think Pink campaign has become more of a corporate ploy than anything else.
