BREAST CANCER LINKED TO INDUSTRIAL RUNOFF
“Breast Cancer Linked to Industrial Runoff” took the personal issue of Breast Cancer and made it public. I projected black and white photographs of women who had undergone breast cancer surgery onto corn fields. Lancaster, Pennsylvania has some of the finest soil in the United States yet research is showing that Lancaster is climbing the charts in breast cancer percentages. In April 2008, I placed larger than life size images of women on corn fields with strong belief that runoff from these farms is linked to this epidemic. There is promising research that environmental carcinogens, such as plastics, pesticides, and industrial runoff in ground water is one of the causes of this disease.
