Research Into Exogenous Causes Of Breast Cancer

EDM number 443 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Shannon on 23/10/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health education and preventive medicine and Research and innovation.

That this House notes ongoing research into the impact of environmental pollutants, such as endocrine, or hormone, distrupting chemicals on humans; further notes that greater understanding of how these pollutants interact with other substances in the environment and within our bodies is needed to help us identify and take steps to reduce the environmental causes of breast cancer; recognises that in 2015-16 cancer research funding into the exogenous causes of the disease accounted for just 1.31 per cent of cancer research funding, significantly down from 3.4 per cent in 2005-06; and calls for an increase in research funding into the exogenous factors in the origin and causes of cancer.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
