Alliance for Cancer Prevention responds to “Unpinking cancer”

In a BBC radio Woman’s Hour feature on the film Pink Ribbons Inc about corporate sponsorship of breast cancer charities, the Alliance for Cancer Prevention was represented by founder member, Andrew Watterson. He made the case for the environmental causes of cancer and was critical of how little money was invested in prevention. Listen to the programme here.
