Is the Komen Foundation running to find a cure or to
find more money for itself?
Thursday, February 14, 2013 by: Tony Isaacs
(NaturalNews) February is Cancer Prevention Month, though you might never guess
it given the lack of publicity compared to attention given to the non-profits
who focus on "finding a cure" as part of "Cancer Awareness" campaigns. The
biggest of all the cancer non-profits is the Susan G. Komen Foundation,
which has over 100 "Race for the Cure" and other events scheduled for 2013.
As this $400 million per year giant pink gorilla of cancer charities continues
to grow, the question that begs answering is: "Is the Komen Foundation really
running for a cure or are they instead running mostly to keep their foundation
going and the money flowing in?"
After all, you would think that any serious effort to find a cure for breast
cancer or any other form of cancer would center on the role of toxins, which are
increasingly recognized as far and away the major cause of cancer. Yet, in the
Komen Foundation's lengthy list of risk factors, not a mention is made of risks
posed by exposure to toxins.
Looking for a cure
or "pinkwashing" for the sake of money?
A look at the corporate sponsors and stock ownership of the Komen Foundation
might provide at least a partial answer to why toxins aren't mentioned. Is it a
coincidence that prominent Komen Foundation sponsors includes food and cosmetic
companies whose products, GMOs and other toxins contribute to cancer?
One notable example of corporate sponsors for the
is food giant General Mills, which is listed among the Komen Million Dollar
Elite Club. General Mills recently spent over $1 million on another cause - the
successful corporate effort to defeat the California GMO labeling initiative.
There is also the new campaign between
Komen and Kentucky Fried
Furthermore, though mammograms have come under increasing scrutiny for causing
cancer and leading to unnecessary surgeries and treatments, the Komen foundation
gives lip service to the "debate over mammograms" and continues to promote
mammograms as an important screening tool. Is it likewise a coincidence that the
Komen Foundation owns stock in General Electric, a huge Komen sponsor and one of
the largest manufacturers of mammography machines in the world? Or that Dupont,
a leading maker of mammography film, is also a sponsor?
If the Komen Foundation were truly running to find a cure, would it not make
sense that they would be keenly interested in how a woman beat terminal breast
cancer? In at least one
instance, the Komen Foundation instead ran right on by one woman who tried to
contact them to tell them how she used natural therapies to beat what mainstream
doctors had said was terminal cancer.
When the woman used alternative treatments to beat metastatic breast cancer that
had been deemed terminal, she immediately faxed, called and emailed dozens of
people at the Susan G. Komen foundation as well as the media and other
foundations "to let them know they can stop running."
"I was shocked, betrayed, appalled and sickened that no one in the research
department would call me back. I beat my disease, and no one cared, not a one.
No media, no doctor, no foundation gave (me) the time of day."
"The advocacy group I used stated that all foundations were like this."
"They don't really want to find a
cure, they want to keep searching and doing experiments so that they can
keep their jobs."
Sadly, the huge cancer industry cannot continue its jobs, profits and expansion
if cancer is prevented or actually cured - and that includes charities who "pinkwash"
the truth for the sake of money.
