The Silent Spring Institute is dedicated to identifying the links between the environment and women's health, especially breast cancer.
The old question, "Why did I get breast cancer?" has been transformed to, "Why do we have breast cancer rates higher than generations before and among the highest in the world? What can we do as a community of women and men to change the legacy for our daughters?" Silent Spring Institute was founded as an alliance of scientists and activists to address these questions, in the search for breast cancer prevention and improved women's health through environmental studies.
"For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death."
