Breast Cancer Ribbon Creator And Estee Lauder Doyenne Dies At 75 (PHOTOS)



Text by Christian Salazar and Samantha Critichell, AP

NEW YORK -- Pink was Evelyn Lauder's color.

In her long career as an executive at cosmetics giant Estee Lauder Cos., the company founded by her mother-in-law, Lauder worked with many shades of red, peach, bronze and even blues, but pink was the one hue that changed her life.

In 1992, Lauder worked with her friend Alexandra Penney, the former editor-in-chief of Self magazine, to create the pink ribbon campaign for breast cancer awareness. It started small with Lauder and her husband, Leonard, largely financing the little bows given to women at department store makeup counters to remind them about breast exams.

That grew into fundraising products, congressional designation of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and $330 million in donations $50 million from Estee Lauder and its partners to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which Lauder also started.

That money helped establish the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, which opened in 2009.

Lauder died Saturday at her Manhattan home from complications of nongenetic ovarian cancer. She was 75.

Just last month, she reminisced about the early days of the breast cancer campaign. When it launched, it was so little known that some people thought it symbolized AIDS awareness.

"There had been no publicity about breast cancer, but a confluence of events the pink ribbon, the color, the press, partnering with Elizabeth Hurley, having Estee Lauder as an advertiser in so magazines and persuading so many of my friends who are health and beauty editors to do stories about breast health -- got people talking," she said. Then, three years after distributing the first pink ribbon, a flight attendant noted it on Lauder's lapel and said, "I know that's for breast cancer."

"From there, it became ubiquitous," she remembered.

Lauder had been diagnosed with her cancer in 2007, but it didn't slow her down much. Come each October, she appeared at cancer awareness events around the world.

The rest of the time, she went to work at Estee Lauder's Fifth Avenue headquarters, which, despite its annual revenue of $2.48 billion, was run much like a family business. Over the years, Evelyn Lauder would hold many positions there and she helped develop its lines of skin care, makeup and fragrance.

She came up with the name of its popular Clinique brand during the 1960s. Most recently, she held the title of senior corporate vice president.

Her other passion was photography, and she was the author of the book "In Great Taste: Fresh, Simple Recipes for Eating and Living Well."

Born Evelyn Hausner in 1936 in Vienna, Austria, she fled Nazi-occupied Europe with her parents, and they settled in the U.S. She attended public schools in New York City and Hunter College, part of the City University of New York.

As a college freshman, she met her husband, the elder son of Estee Lauder and whose family owned what was then a small cosmetics company.

"We had five products in the line, we only had two or three colors in our lipsticks," she told cable news channel NY1 in 2005. "It was a baby company."

The young couple married in 1959. Leonard Lauder is now chairman emeritus of the company. Estee Lauder died in 2004 at 97.

Leonard and Evelyn Lauder's son William is executive chairman of Estee Lauder Cos. Another son, Gary, is managing director of Lauder Partners LLC, a technology investment firm.

Take Control of Your Breast Health: Using Natural Supplements and Remedies



Nowadays, you can hear the news about the recent evolutionary leaps in breast-enhancement science and breast-health issue covered by respected national television programs as well as national newspapers. One of the most important aspect is the use of natural supplements and remedies. Sadly, it is one of the most neglected as well.

Why is it neccessary to use natural supplements and remedies? Because often the body needs extra help in the form of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Even though you want to eat nutritious meals, sometimes you're too busy to achieve that goal. Unless you buy organic or whole foods, much of the food on the market lacks adequate nutritional value.

There are many things in the environment that deplete nutrients from your body, including physical and emotional stress, pollution, insufficient sleep, smoking, over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription drugs, caffeine, as well as alcohol. Sometimes you experience symptoms that respond well to natural remedies, which allows you to avoid use of conventional drugs and their associated side effects. You may also be under necessary chemotherapy or radiation treatment and your body can benefit from the healing powers of natural remedies.

At minimum, all women need to take a multivitamin-mineral supplement, even those who eat a healthy diet, because of the reasons just mentioned. Think of your supplement as an insurance policy: it's no guarantee that you won't get sick, but it's an economical, safe way to help promote and maintain breast health. The recommended supplement dosages for overall breast health are shown below.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants are any vitamin, mineral, or other nutrient that fights or works against (anti) the cell-damaging process called oxidation. To fight free radicals, you need antioxidants. Although the best sources of most antioxidants are fresh fruits and vegetables, you can enhance your diet and your breast health by taking supplements. Four of the most common antioxidants are vitamins A, C, and E, and the mineral selenium; known collectively as ACES. They are standard ingredients in multivitamin-mineral supplements.

B Vitamins

The B vitamins are considered as a family because they work closely together in metabolic processes and in strengthening the immune system in its fight against cancer. Although each individual B vitamin may not possess specific cancer-fighting powers, collectively they appear to have anticancer abilities. Although this vitamin is found primarily in meat and dairy products, many foods are fortified with B12, including cereals and soy products. Natural sources of B12 are nutritional yeast and sea vegetables, such as kelp, dulse, and other seaweeds.

Calcium

Calcium has been identified as a cancer-preventive nutrient. Many women have the misconception that they must consume dairy products to get enough calcium. Yet soybeans, soy products, legumes, beans, cruciferous vegetables, calcium-enriched orange juice, and seaweed provide an excellent supply of calcium, plus you get cancer-fighting phytochemicals and a good dose of protein. One cup of cow's milk, fortified soy milk, and fortified rice milk all contain about 280 milligrams of calcium.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D, the "sunshine vitamin"so named because the body produces it when exposed to the sun for about 10 minutes a dayhas been associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer in several studies. In 1999, for example, researchers with a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey study reported that their "data support the hypothesis that sunlight and dietary vitamin D reduce the risk of breast cancer."

Other Recommended Natural Supplements

In addition to a multivitamin-mineral supplement, several other substances can be a helpful part of your breast health program. They include glutathione, green tea, indoles, red clover, and soy isoflavonoids. You may want to include these as part of your overall breast health program, especially if you are at risk for breast cancer.

Setbacks and criticism — don't let them derail you

"Mama said there'd be days like this. There'd be days like this, Mama said." So go the words of an iconic song from several decades ago.

Everyone has those days. You lose a valuable client. A vendor pulls out at the last minute from a major project. A legal hurdle derails a major construction project just as the earth moving equipment arrives. Your manuscript is rejected with a scathing critique. Your performance of a lifetime is shredded by a mean-spirited reviewer. How do you overcome these setbacks?

There's are no cookbook answers, but here are some tactics to try:

Remind yourself that because someone says something doesn't make it true. J. K. Rowling, who wrote the "Harry Potter" series, was viciously rejected by almost two dozen publishers. She is now one of the wealthiest women in the United Kingdom.Don't let the judgments and decisions of other people undercut your sense of wellbeing. Your peace of mind is a precious gift. Don't give it away.Man up when you make a mistake or are at fault. Acknowledge your error, learn from it and then move on.Keep things in perspective. In a year or two, will these events really matter? The answer is in all likelihood that they won't.

While on a recent book tour, I became acquainted with a law enforcement officer who spent his career as an undercover narcotics agent. He talked about a time when he killed two individuals in self-defense. He viewed the events with sadness, but acknowledged that they occurred in the line of duty. I asked him point-blank, "How do you deal with these events night after night and day after day?" And he told me that he cultivated the ability to put miseries in a box and close the lid. He could then walk away with no regrets and no remorse.

Like this officer, you must find a way to put setbacks behind you and move forward with grace, dignity and humility.

1 in 4 Senior Women in U.S. Has Osteoporosis: CDC

About 6 percent of men aged 65 or older also have the bone-thinning condition, report finds



WebMD News from HealthDay

By EJ Mundell



HealthDay Reporter

THURSDAY, Aug. 13, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- The weakening bones of osteoporosis greatly raise a person's odds for dangerous fractures, and a new report finds that one-quarter of all American women aged 65 or older suffer from the condition.

Close to 6 percent of men in this age group also have osteoporosis, according to the report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Experts weren't surprised, and said more must be done to test for and treat the loss of bone density that often comes with age.

Osteoporosis and its precursor condition -- osteopenia (low bone mass) -- "is not just a problem for the 80-year-old individual, but starts to become an issue for many adults in their 50s and 60s," said Dr. Saad Chaudhary, a spine surgeon at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York City.

In the study, Anne Looker and Steven Frenk, of the CDC's Division of Health and Nutrition Examination Statistics, examined 2005-2010 data from a major federal government health survey.

The investigators reported that more than 16 percent of all American seniors -- about 25 percent of women and nearly 6 percent of men -- have full-blown osteoporosis as evidenced on bone density tests of the spine and hip.

The numbers rise even higher when the data involves osteopenia, where bone loss is already apparent but hasn't reached the stage of osteoporosis. In that case, almost half (48 percent) of seniors -- more than 52 percent of women and 44 percent of men -- had osteopenia, the data showed.

Of course, rates of osteoporosis rose with age -- about 26 percent of adults aged 80 or older had the condition. But the CDC team also noted that almost 13 percent of all adults between 65 and 79 years of age had osteoporotic bones.

In terms of demographics, Mexican-American seniors had the highest rate of osteoporosis (almost 25 percent), while blacks had the lowest rate (a little more than 10 percent), the report found.

Chaudhary stressed that much of this bone loss could be prevented.

"We reach our peak bone mineral density in adolescence and then must work conscientiously to maintain that through activity, a balanced diet, and consultation with health care providers," he said.
