The global objective of this pilot project is to establish the scientific evidence for environmental problems in relation to areas with higher breast cancer rates, with the aim to improve the situation for the citizens living in this area in a cross-sectorial manner.
Priorities and funded actions:
– To identify a certain number of geographical regions in the European Union presenting higher breast cancer rates due to identifiable environmental factors.
– Priority in the analysis and on the actions to be proposed should be given to youngest cohorts of age in full compatibility and complementary with the European Union breast cancer policy on prevention and early detection of breast cancer;
– The project will focus on soil and water contamination by polluting agents and include specifically illegal disposal of toxic waste as well as on industrial areas;
– The project will be carried out in form of a study in order to review the evidence of polluting agents and their impact on health, specifically breast cancer with full scientific justification of any action proposed.
