Snedeker to give talk on environmental estrogens

Suz Snedeker On October 19, Dr. Suzanne Snedeker, associate director of translational research for Cornell's Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors (BCERF), will present information on the link between environmental estrogens that are found in everyday products and increased breast cancer risk at a meeting of the Sigma Alpha - Alpha Psi sorority. This professional agriculture sorority includes undergraduate members interested in the veterinary sciences.

Research has shown that small amounts of environmental estrogens found in many everyday products (for example, cosmetics and plastics) can add up and may work with the body's own estrogen to increase breast cancer risk. Some of the topics to be covered in Snedeker's talk include:

The presentation will elaborate on messages shared in three videos available on YouTube (use enviroestrogen as search word). A collaborative production between BCERF and Partners in Animal Health program, the short videos can also be found on the BCERF website. Look for the following:
