Announcing a landmark national conference:
CANCER: It's About Prevention. It's About Time!
University of Ottawa, May 24-27, 2007
Over half of all cancers are preventable - so why are many cancers
still on the rise?
Why do Canadians have so many chemicals in their blood?
Why are we still being exposed to so many carcinogens in the air we
breathe, the water we drink, the products we use and the food we eat?
Prevent Cancer Now & the Saunders-Matthey Cancer Prevention Coalition
are co-sponsoring this national conference to ask these important
questions, and develop a solid strategy to reduce the high incidence of
cancers in Canada.

workshops, and launch of the book Cancer: 101 Solutions to a
