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.
