A pink Italian dish for breast cancer awareness

In Italy, May is breastcancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.

Currently there is not sufficient knowledge on the causes of breast cancer, therefore, early detection of the disease remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control. 

When it’s detected early, and if adequate diagnosis and treatment are available, there is a good chance that breast cancer can be cured. 

This dish, is our way to remind you to go to your doctor for the annual breast check-up! This is not an only-women call! Dear male followers, today remind to your mothers, sisters, wives, girl friends, to go to their doctors for a breast check-up.
