Explores the little understood links between environmental degradation and breast cancer.

Notes: 
Review, Network Winter 1997: Breast cancer rates are increasing all over the world. Seventy to eighty percent of women with breast cancer have none of the "official" risk factors. Does living in an increasingly contaminated world have anything to do with this? This powerful new documentary video sets out to explore the little understood links between environmental degradation and breast cancer. Narrated by Olivia Newton-John, a breast cancer survivor, the video contains illuminating interviews with women such as CWHN Coordinating Committee member Vuyiswa Keyi-Ayema, Dr. Susan Love, Dr. Devra Lee Davis, Dr. Rosalie Bertell and Sharon Batt.
