‘Nanny’ cooks, cleans and trash-talks can­cer

Modern Healthcare - - OUTLIERS ASIDES & INSIDES -

Fran Drescher may not have been much for clean­ing as “The Nanny,” but now she’s lead­ing the cam­paign to rid our homes of can­cer­caus­ing sub­stances.

The ac­tress’s Can­cer Sch­mancer group has joined with health in­surer Hu­mana and Grand­par­ents.com to pro­mote the Trash Can­cer Party ini­tia­tive, which en­cour­ages peo­ple to host get-to­geth­ers to wipe out car­cino­gens and other tox­ins in their homes.

The trash­ing par­ties will be in full swing Sept. 29. Hu­mana is spon­sor­ing 1,000 Trash Can­cer Party Kits, which are filled with ev­ery­thing a good host­ess would need to clean house, plan games and whip up healthy recipes.

In a news re­lease, Hu­mana cited an ar­ti­cle from the jour­nal Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Re­search stated that more than 90% of can­cer cases can be traced to life­style and en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors.

Drescher started Can­cer Sch­mancer af­ter her own strug­gle with uter­ine can­cer. The group aims to find ways to pre­vent can­cer and de­tect it sooner.

Out­liers sus­pects even Mr. Sh­effield would be proud.
