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.
