September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Seventh Generation has teamed with Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF), to honor and support Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month by raising funds for OCRF’s women’s support programs.
About Ovarian Cancer:
•Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States and is the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among U.S. women.
•The symptoms of ovarian cancer are often vague and subtle, making it difficult to detect and diagnose.
•Signs and symptoms include: bloating, pelvic and/or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly and urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency). If a woman is experiencing these symptoms for two or more weeks, and if they are new and unusual for her, she should see her doctor, according to OCRF.
Did you know:
•Ovarian cancer is often referred to as “the silent killer” because once diagnosed, it’s often in latter stages?
•The rayon in tampons is often whitened with chemicals containing chlorine, which can result in dangerous chlorinated toxins released in the environment?
•If every women of reproductive age in the U.S. replaced one package of 16 count regular size conventional rayon/cotton blend tampons with Seventh Generation’s organic cotton tampons, we could prevent 17,000 pounds of pesticides from entering our environment and polluting our rivers, lakes and streams?
