Think before you PINK! With Vicki Saputo, RN.  Pink washing or "pink ribbons" can be a marketing ploy to sell products.  BIG cosmetic companies  sell products containing the toxic chemicals like carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, etc. that are known to cause breast cancer, as well as many other diseases. These companies are sponsors for "Walk For The Cure" and need to “Walk their Talk” and encourage prevention, says Vicki.

In 2011, pinkwashing reached a new low with Promise Me, a perfume commissioned by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Promise Me contains unlisted chemicals that are regulated as toxic and hazardous, have not been adequately evaluated for human safety, and have demonstrated negative health effects.

What should we be aware of before we shell out our money and think pink?
