This post is not about enterprise information delivery but about another kind of delivery- awareness. If you have ever seen me in person you might have noticed that i don't really wear makeup-never really have. i do however - hopefully like most of you regardless if you are male or female- use things like deodorant, toothpaste, shampoos and all the other grooming products men, women and children use.

Yesterday i went to the Sweetwater to see Brittany Shane (good local SF band). It happened to be Breast Cancer Fund Benefit and the organizers did a good job of distributing some very disturbing information.

I am doing my part to spread the word. Please check out The Compaign for Safe Cosmetics at and click on the image above to download a very informative brochure about the 12 Ugly Truths Behind the Myth of Cosmetic Safety. For the dudes out there- don't be turned off by the lip stick on their logo- it applies to you as well.

I guess this is to your credit, but I never noticed you didn't wear makeup.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
