In 2005 Robin Kay Levine’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35. With no family history of the disease nor an unhealthy lifestyle, Robin and her sister looked to environmental factors as the cause. They did their home work and found this research….

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stated that the air in our homes is 3 to 7 times more chemically
polluted than outdoor air, pollution and all! Also, that the average home contains as much as 25 pounds of
toxic cleaning products.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that of the chemicals commonly found in homes,
150 have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities.
The Breast Cancer Fund, a non-profit organization, wrote that a substantial and growing body of evidence
indicates that exposures to certain toxic chemicals & hormone mimicking compounds contribute to the
development of breast cancer.
