Part of being the “best” is doing “good” and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October,
Eggland’s Best (EB) will be supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
From September 15th to November 15th, Eggland’s Best will be turning their distinctive red “EB”
stamp into a pink “EB” alongside a Susan G. Komen for the Cure running ribbon logo.
Eggland’s Best will also be pledging $50,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which will help
expand the foundation’s mission to discover and deliver the cure for breast cancer across the globe.
- Consumers can do their part to help find a cure for breast cancer by supporting products that contribute to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. For example, Eggland’s Best will be donating $50,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and, from September 15th to November 15th, Eggland’s Best eggs is turning their distinctive red “EB” stamp into a pink “EB” alongside a Susan G. Komen for the Cure running ribbon.
- In the past year, with the help of companies including Eggland’s Best, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been able to invest an additional $75 million in research, as well as provide more than 600,000 women with free screenings and over 100,000 with treatment assistance
- Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the US, other than skin cancer and second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer
- Right now there are more than 2½ million breast cancer survivors in the United States
- Although you can’t control your family history, a healthy lifestyle is one of the best defenses against breast cancer
- Exercise may help reduce breast cancer risk. Research suggests four or more hours of exercise weekly may help reduce the risk of certain cancers, such as breast cancer – that’s just 35 minutes a day
- When trimming calories, it’s important to make sure you don’t skimp on good nutrition. For only 70 calories, Eggland's Best eggs supply a perfect portion of complete protein, while providing two times more Vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as 10 times more Vitamin E compared to ordinary eggs. Preliminary evidence suggests that, as part of a healthy diet, vitamin D and choline can help to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Eggland’s Best eggs are an excellent source of these nutrients, containing double the vitamin D of ordinary eggs in addition to 25% of the daily requirement of choline.
I am so happy to support the cause by participating in the Part of Being the Best is Doing Good program, helping to spread the word about the EB/Susan G. Komen partnership and “pink ribbon” eggs.
