Lack of Government Support on Cancer Prevention

I've been reading a book called "The Secret History of Cancer" that really goes into detail about how much our government is aware of but not sharing. In 1936 a conference was held where carcinogens like asbestos, smoking, and workplace related chemicals were discussed. Many of these were not banned for decades, and some are still in use. Some that are still in use are detailed in the linked report. It's pretty much impossible to avoid all these things. The only thing that is going to make a difference is for government to ban them and force the companies to find alternatives. Many of the items in the report are banned in the UK and other countries, but not in ours. North America has the highest breast cancer rate of all countries. Wonder why?

This report is lengthy, but worth skimming through:
