Breast cancer projected to rise 56% over next 15 years
A perfect example of this is the Susan G. Komen Foundation. People sign up for their events in droves, walking in an effort to raise breast cancer awareness and donate money to the cause, yet what they aren't necessarily aware of is that the Komen Foundation owns stock in General Electric. Ah, the pieces of the puzzle start to come together now.
In the entire world, GE happens to be one of the largest makers of mammogram machines....
Even scientists have warned against the Komen Foundation, saying that their ads are false, riddled with inaccurate and misleading statements pertaining to breast cancer screening. Prestigious medical journals, too, have made it clear that the Komen Foundation skews information that ends up tricking women into thinking early detection is the key to better breast health.
Healthy ways to fight breast cancer
Rather than rely on races for cures and donating to a cause that causes more health issues than they fight, consider turning to natural alternatives designed to provide your body with healing nutrients.
A diet that shuns foods that are heavily processed, sugary and genetically modified is best for overall health (breast or otherwise); turning to a diet that primarily focuses on organic fruits and vegetables is ideal. Choosing the level of strictness is, of course, entirely up to you.
For example, Janette Murray-Wakelin, a breast cancer survivor who was told she had six months to live, opted to skip traditional medical treatments and chose a raw foods diet. While not necessarily for everyone, her approach involved juicing plenty of Brussels sprouts, green apples, beet roots and broccoli in addition to getting plenty of exercise to oxygenate her body and, in turn, fight off cancer cells. It worked; to this day, she's involved in running hundreds of marathons annually and she remains healthy.
It’s Not About Curing Breast Cancer
Nancy Goodman Brinker, a pioneer of “cause marketing”, founded Susan G. Komen For the Cure in 1982, reportedly as the fulfillment of a deathbed promise made to her sister, a victim of breast cancer. In 1994, Brinker founded In Your Corner, Inc., a for-profit company that markets health products and information. In 1998, Brinker sold In Your Corner to AstraZeneca, the third largest pesticide manufacturer in the world, primarily through Syngenta, a giant global agribusiness company it owns jointly with Novartis.
AstraZeneca has had close ties to Brinker for many years. It gave $97,000 to Komen and its affiliates in the first 6 months of 2008 alone, and it has been a big presence at Komen’s Race for the Cure. AstraZeneca is also one of the largest contributors to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The problem here is that pesticides cause breast cancer.
AstraZeneca solves the problem by no longer advertising itself as a pesticide manufacturer. It is a “life-sciences” company. Ta da! Problem solved! Well, they still manufacture more pesticides than ever (substances that congregate in the sexual glands of mammals causing cancers, birth defects, etc., etc.,) but “life sciences” sounds so reassuring, yes?
Susan G. Komen has created a lengthy list of risk factors for breast cancer. Nowhere in this list can you find exposure to toxins, probably the greatest risk factor of all.
It gets worse. You’ve heard the famous slogan “The best prevention is early detection.” Think about it: If you get breast cancer, you didn’t see the doctor soon enough. Your fault. Next case.
No wonder AstraZeneca gives handsomely. The focus of Komen and pharmaceutical research is entirely on screening and treatment, not on prevention. In other words, “the cure” focuses on the symptoms and ignores the cause. Less than 5% of the total research dollars in this country are spent determining and eliminating the causes of cancer — none of that money, you can bet, spent by “life sciences” companies.
You have to hand it to AstraZeneca. Not only do they recognize and reward good propaganda when they see it, they also recognize a great market opportunity. Since the 90’s, AstraZeneca has bought up cancer treatment centers until it owns one of the country’s largest chains. With $13 billion in profits in 2011, it makes billions on oncology drugs, and it makes billions on pesticides and herbicides.
