HBCAC strives for community oriented programs focused on Breast Cancer, Education, Precaution and Prevention.


Our Mission is to increase public awareness of environmental links to disease. GAIN support for the “Precautionary Principle” as it applies to public policy, URGE the    public to demand more funding for environmental health research, and ENCOURAGE a “better safe than sorry” attitude toward personal lifestyle. | More

Mounting scientific evidence demonstrates that Lead poisoning, Endocrine disruptors, Air pollution, and Pesticides are the four types of toxins that contribute to the onset of disease. Look before you LEAP provides environmental health information in a manner that is non-threatening, age-appropriate and fun for children and families alike. | More
