Here at SUNSET®, we do our best to treat our bodies well and we know that eating fresh, healthy produce is a great way to start. In alignment with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re outlining some important facts, preventative methods, and sharing what we’re doing as a company to help the fight against breast cancer.

Facts

  • Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime?
  • Women ages 40 to 44should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screenings with mammograms if they wish to do so.
  • Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.

Preventative Measures
Absolute cancer prevention is not guaranteed, but there are plenty of healthy lifestyle choices you can make to decrease the risk of cancer:

  1. Stay away from tobacco.
  2. Limit your intake of alcohol.
  3. Be physically active on a regular basis.
  4. Make healthy food choices and focus on plant-based foods. (You can start here!)
  5. Maintain healthy weight throughout life.

These lifestyle choices are universally recognized, but it’s always important to consult your physician and consider what actions you can take to improve your health.

Doing our Part
For the month of October all Campari® packages will carry a special pink label to help bring attention to the cause. In addition, through our partnership with Pink Ribbon Produce, we’ve donated over $100,000 in support of this cause, with funds going toward research and treatment programs. SUNSET® is dedicated to spreading awareness so that more people are informed and can join in the fight to eradicate breast cancer.
