How the Cancer Industry Controls Women
by Mike Adams, NaturalNews
October 9 2007
already seen the headlines touting October as breast cancer awareness
month. A zillion products are available in "pink" editions
now, and gullible consumers snatch them up at retail outlets without
knowing a single thing about where that money goes or even what
percentage of their product sale is donated to cancer non-profits.
(For many products, the amount donated is mere pennies, and much
of the donated money goes to worthless cancer maintenance non-profits
that have no interest in actually preventing cancer...)
level of hype and propaganda in this year's breast cancer awareness
month has risen to a new low. The American Cancer Society, as
usual, appears to be absolutely worthless in all this, still failing
to teach women the No. 1 way to prevent a whopping 77 percent
of all cancers: Sunlight and vitamin D.
ultra-wealthy ACS non-profit, with all its ties to pharmaceutical
companies and mammography machine manufacturers, still refuses
to openly urge women to prevent breast cancer by getting more
vitamin D through nutritional supplements or sensible sunlight
exposure. In fact, the organization continues to warn people away
from sunlight, actually contributing to the mass vitamin D deficiency
that's now rampant in western nations (including the U.S., Canada
and the U.K.).
D deficiency greatly reduces the body's ability to halt the growth
of cancer tumors. That's why higher amounts of vitamin D circulating
through the blood have been shown again and again to dramatically
reduce the growth of cancer tumors, keeping them in check and
preventing a breast cancer diagnosis. Over 75 percent of all breast
and prostate cancers could be avoided through vitamin D therapy
the American Cancer Society appears to have no interest in vitamin
D. How could it be that this cancer-centric non-profit wouldn't
be interested in a free therapy that could eliminate up to three-fourths
of all future cancers? Shouldn't this be the No. 1 headline around
the world during breast cancer awareness month? Shouldn't the
ACS be screaming this fact to anyone who will listen?
of course not. In my opinion, the American Cancer Society (ACS)
has no interest whatsoever in actually preventing cancer. In my
view, it is only interested in promoting the screening and treatment
of cancer because that's what makes money for the financial supporters
of the ACS. In fact, the ACS recently restructured its own priorities
to focus more on screening and treatment, and less on cancer prevention.
missing from the risk factors list?
the ACS now says there are only four major modifiable risk factors
that impact your risk of breast cancer. They are:
o Alcohol use
is vitamin D on the list? It remains suspiciously absent.
don't you think? The single most powerful anti-cancer nutrient
known to modern science one that helps halt the growth
of virtually all tumors in the body while reducing breast cancer
risk by 77 percent isn't on the American Cancer Society's
list! (See our article reporting this finding at http://www.NaturalNews.com/021892.html
the ACS failed to read the research on this nutrient? Could the
most miraculous anti-cancer nutrient known to modern science have
somehow slipped by the astute scientists at the ACS?
intelligent outside observers might conclude that the ACS is either
hopelessly ignorant about nutrition or that it simply has no interest
in promoting anything that would financially harm its primary
supporters (drug companies and oncology equipment manufacturers).
Before You Pink
all the mindless reporting about breast cancer awareness month
in the mainstream media, there is at least one blip of intelligence
on the radar: The Think Before You Pink campaign by Breast
Cancer Action (http://www.bcaction.org),
a much better informed anti-cancer non-profit led by Barbara Brenner
in San Francisco. Breast Cancer Action has a rare philosophy of
refusing to accept money from pharmaceutical companies or any
corporations that profit from the disease.
American Cancer Society, on the other hand, takes all sorts of
money from companies that profit from cancer. Some might argue
that's why the ACS often called the wealthiest non-profit
in the world seems to have no interest in actually preventing
the disease, but rather focuses on "recruiting" more
women into conventional cancer treatments that earn billions of
dollars in profits for their primary financial supporters.
Cancer Action has an important message for consumers: Think Before
You Pink. It means, essentially, don't be hoodwinked into buying
"pink" products unless you know exactly how much money
is going to cancer research and where the money's going. A lot
of the "pink products" money goes to the Susan G. Komen
foundation, which in my opinion is another useless nonprofit engaged
primarily in pleasing the interests of its big corporate supporters
rather than actually doing anything useful to prevent cancer.
Read the book Pink Ribbons, Inc. to learn more about what happens
behind closed doors at the Susan G. Komen foundation.
Breast Cancer Action points out, a lot of the "pink products"
marketing is nothing more than Pinkwashing a ploy by product
marketers to boost sales of products that actually contribute
to breast cancer risk! Many cosmetics and personal care products,
for example, are loaded with cancer-causing chemicals that soak
right through the skin and enter the bloodstream, and yet these
products proudly display pink ribbons, enticing gullible women
to purchase them while thinking they're doing something useful
to stop breast cancer.
it wasn't for the fact that so many women are being killed by
toxic products, it would all be quite hilarious. But the sad fact
is that product marketers are exploiting both the pocketbooks
and bodies of women in a quest to generate more profits at any
cost... including the cost in human lives.
to prevent cancer prevention
is interesting to note that with all the toxic chemicals found
in personal care products these days, the American Cancer Society
has actually fought laws and initiatives that would have helped
prevent cancer. As Samuel Epstein explains, "The ACS has
a longstanding track record of indifference and even hostility
to cancer prevention. This is particularly disturbing in view
of the escalating incidence of cancer now striking one in two
men and one in three women in their lifetimes. Recent examples
include issuing a joint statement with the Chlorine Institute
justifying the continued global use of persistent organochlorine
pesticides, and also supporting the industry in trivializing dietary
pesticide residues as avoidable risks of childhood cancer. ACS
policies are further exemplified by allocating under 0.1 percent
of its $700 million annual budget to environmental and occupational
causes of cancer."

as usual in the cancer industry
cancer industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that preys
upon the bodies of women, exploiting them for profit. And if nothing
changes, we'll continue to see the same madness that brought us
to this point:
Cancer non-profits that, in reality, have no interest in preventing
The marketing of pink ribbon products that actually cause
The routine censorship of any information about vitamin
D, which helps to cure cancer
A complete failure of the mainstream media to report the
truth about cancer
Complete failure of conventional doctors and oncologists
to recommend safe, natural, and low-cost cancer therapies
it all up and you get a future with a whole lot more cancer. Not
coincidentally, that's exactly what Big Pharma wants! The more
cancer patients there are, the greater their profits. Actually
preventing cancer would devastate the industry's profits, costing
them billions of dollars in profits they've already banked on!
That's why the industry remains so focused on screening and detecting
cancer but not preventing it! (Detection makes money, prevention
loses money. Get it?)
to believe? Don't be naive...
know a lot of people read this and think to themselves, "How
could the cancer industry be so evil? How could they exploit the
lives of women so callously?" Think Enron. Corporations are,
by their very nature, domineering entities capable of great evil,
even when the people who work in those corporations might be honest,
hard-working individuals. In our current system of free market
economics, only the strong, dominant corporations survive. And
that requires maximizing revenues and creating new opportunities
to sell more drugs to more people, regardless of the real cost
in human suffering or environmental destruction.
of the cancer non-profits have become little more than front groups
for the corporations that make money off of cancer. They act as
commercial cheerleading squads, pumping up the crowd to go get
screened and hopefully get diagnosed with cancer so they'll end
up buying high-profit chemotherapy drugs.
research, by the way, shows that chemotherapy drugs cause heart
damage to women, leading to heart failure. Even mainstream oncologists
are starting to think that maybe the industry should stop using
these toxic drugs to treat breast cancer. As Dr. Pamela Douglas,
a Duke University cardiologist recently said, "In the process
of curing their breast cancer, we've exposed them to some pretty
nasty things. And it's not just one nasty thing, it's a sequence
of nasty things." Those nasty things, it turns out, cause
permanent damage to the heart, kidney, liver and brain.
they're really great for the bottom-line profits of pharmaceutical
corporations. And that's the whole reason why screening and chemotherapy
continues to be so strongly promoted by cancer non-profit groups,
even while highly effect prevention strategies (vitamin D helps
to prevent 77 percent of ALL cancers) are routinely ignored.
say the cancer industry actually intends to keep the disease going
as long as possible, with as many people as possible in order
to maximize profits. Anyone who disagrees with me must ask the
all-important question: If these cancer non-profits are so interested
in preventing cancer, why won't they strongly recommend vitamin
D which prevents 77 percent of all cancers? Why?
do we need to spend billions of dollars each year on "the
search for the cure" when we have a substance right now
available for free that prevents nearly 8 out of 10 cancers
in the first place? A 77 percent reduction in all cancers sounds
like a pretty important milestone to me. Seems like any organization
that was actually interested in the welfare of the people would
express some degree of interest in this natural vitamin, wouldn't
Before You Pink
be a sucker for cancer marketing schemes. Don't support pink products,
and don't be fooled into getting annual mammograms (which actually
cause cancer, by the way). Think before you pink! And
get more sunlight and vitamin D. That's the single most powerful
thing you can do to prevent breast cancer, other than perhaps
quitting smoking. But if you don't smoke already, getting sunlight
and vitamin D is the single most important thing you can do to
prevent cancer, period!
Cancer Action Launches 6th Year of Think Before You Pink
Francisco Breast Cancer Action (BCA) today launched its
annual Think Before You Pink campaign with a new focus
"pinkwashing" companies that increase sales by
putting pink ribbons on their products, even though these products
contribute to the breast cancer epidemic.
its inception in 2002, BCA's Think Before You Pink campaign
has been urging consumers to ask critical questions about the
hundreds of pink ribbon products and promotions that are marketed
every October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
(BCA calls it Breast Cancer Industry Month). Calling for
transparency and accountability from companies that use pink ribbons
to sell products, BCA believes that consumers can and should ask
questions about how the money is being raised and where the money
big question of the campaign this year is which companies are
engaging in pink ribbon marketing while manufacturing products
that are contributing to the epidemic. Toward this end, BCA is
singling out the car, dairy, and cosmetics industries.
pinkwashing companies are trying to have it both ways," says
BCA Executive Director Barbara A. Brenner. "If they care
as deeply as they say they do about women's lives, they'll clean
up their products."
example, Ford, Mercedes, and BMW are each raising funds with campaigns
that urge consumers to buy and drive cars for breast cancer awareness
and research. However, car exhaust contains toxic chemicals that
are linked to the disease, and by urging consumers to buy and
drive polluting cars in the name of breast cancer, they are also
encouraging consumers to unwittingly help increase the incidence
of the disease.
not telling anyone not to buy these products or not to drive,"
says Brenner. "We're asking that consumers think before they
buy, contact the companies to demand cleaner products, and remember
that they have options. That's why it's called 'Think Before You
