Exposure
Environmental Links To Breast Cancer

WINNER 'BEST HEALTH DOCUMENTARY'
SEPT 2001
NEW YORK INT'L INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL

Director: Francine Zuckerman,
Producers: Martha Butterfield & Francine Zuckerman
Associate Producer, Principle Research Consultant: Dorothy Goldin Rosenberg

This video was conceived in response to the growing public debate about the implications of our contaminated world on the health of women. Today one in three people will get cancer. One in four will die from it. In the 1950's, women in industrialised countries were at a one in twenty risk of developing breast cancer over their lifetime. Today that risk has skyrocketed to one in eight. Cancer can have many causes. Seventy to eighty percent of women with breast cancer have none of the "official" risk factors: family history (5-10%), hormonal and reproductive factors and a high fat diet. However, breast cancer rates are increasing all over the world and may be but the tip of the iceberg of other environmentally linked diseases. Timely, responsive and urgently needed, Exposure: Environmental Links To Breast Cancer can play a major role in raising awareness around the little understood, long-term connections between environment, health and disease prevention. It introduces issues, raises questions, awareness and opportunities. It offers strategies for dealing with current unacceptable environmental health conditions and for generating the social and political changes needed for a cleaner, safer world. Featuring:
