I have an idea for a symbol to replace the pink ribbon, for Breast Cancer awareness. I think the symbol should be a brown "I", this would show, not only that the wearer is supporting the fight against breast cancer, but also that they know how to do it. The italic 'i' is also a symbol for where to get information, in my country, and I'd love it to be a symbol for getting information on Iodine and the treatment and prevention of breast cancer.
There is no point to making people aware of breast cancer, without telling them what they can do to prevent it, without information, its just fear mongering, and we have quite enough of that in our society.
Knowledge is power, and for me, my knowledge of the use of Iodine in treating FBD, uterine fibroids and a slew of other diseases, is my power against the fear of getting cancer.
