Breast Cancer Action Montreal (BCAM) is a non-profit activist/advocacy group directed by women who have been sensitized to the trauma of breast cancer (affecting themselves or someone close to them) and who are committed — long-term — to erasing the disease. They educate about environmental toxins linked to breast cancer. The goal of this Safe Cosmetics Campaign is to provide accurate and unbiased information on the scientific data on the health effects of cosmetics and to provide a platform for demanding political and regulatory changes.
