Where does all the money for the “cure” really go?

by: PF Louis of Natural News

During October, there will be runs, walks, and other fund raising schemes for “curing cancer.” The most notorious fund raiser is the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They display the most pink within the pink ribbon culture. Their mission statement is a world without breast cancer. So why are they ignoring actual existing cancer cures?

Pink washing

Woe to any other non-profit fund raising group that uses their event or activity linked to the phrase “… for the cure.” Komen threatens them with lawsuits. It’s okay for Komen’s “corporate partners,” for example KFC’s “Buckets for the Cure” not long ago. One wonders how Komen will protect the word “hope” that they’re using these days.

Komen enlists businesses to display the pink ribbon or color a product pink “(item) for the cure” or “(item) of hope.” This has come to be known as “pink washing”. It involves businesses donating small portions of their sales revenue to Komen. Often the businesses sell products that suppress the immune system or contain carcinogenic ingredients.

Besides KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) there have been many other unhealthy contributors “for the cure.” Some of them sell cosmetics that contain carcinogenic ingredients. Some others are industries that emit environmental and health hazards. Some of them sold yogurts that contained rBGH in their pasteurized milk.

Komen has its own mail order list of mostly useless items, but under Komen.com rather than Komen.org. Pink washed companies or corporate partners have an opportunity to sell more products to those who think consuming goods leads to cancer cures. A Seattle gun store once teamed up with Komen and sold pink barreled Walther P-22 “handguns of hope.”

Following the money

According to Charity Navigator.org, former CEO of Komen for the Cure Hala G. Moddelmog was salaried at approximately $500,000 annually plus bonus. But Komen’s founder, Susan G. Komen’s surviving sister Nancy G. Brinker, has recently taken over the CEO position and no figures could be found for her.

CEOs of charities that spent more than $100 million, which includes Komen, averaged over $450,000 annually according to Charity Navigator.org. Several charitable organization jobs are advertised for $200,000 annually. Naturally there are additional perks for travel and lodging as well.

Komen’s revenue for the fiscal year of 2009/10 was $400 million. Thirty-five million came from investments and $365 million was from the various fund raising efforts, including race or walk fees, donations, pink washing, sponsors, and Komen.com sales.

That fiscal year, Komen’ s contributions were: $141 million for education, $47 million for health screening, and $75 million for research. Fundraising costs and affiliate expenses were approximately $60 million with general administrative costs at $37 million.

Education did not include dietary information such as abstaining from sugar (cancer’s favorite food) and toxic foods. It didn’t include avoiding junk foods and eating whole organic foods. Vitamin D3 was not even mentioned. But bickering over whether radiation should come before or after chemo was discussed.

Mammograms can cause cancer or misdiagnose, resulting in unnecessary treatment. Thermography is safe and effective. But Komen refuses to acknowledge this while pushing mammograms.

Research is for Big Pharma only. There’s nothing for Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski in Houston or Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez in New York, both of whom are doing their best going through FDA hoops to gain acceptance for their safe, efficacious treatments. No real follow up with the Gerson Institute or Hoxsey’s Bio-Medical Center, both forced into operating out of Mexico.

How come no research into mega-dose IV vitamin C for cancer? There are studies proving its efficacy. Hey Komen, how come you haven’t consulted with TV star Suzanne Somers about her breast cancer cure from European mistletoe extract injections? She wrote a bestseller about it.

What would any of these cancer charity people do if the actual existing inexpensive cures were allowed? Maybe they don’t want a cure. Maybe they want their high paying jobs and puffed up prestige. They are part of the multi-billion dollar cancer industry, which would collapse if cures are allowed.

Komen has been raising funds for thirty years. As long as there are suckers who worship the cut, burn, and poison cancer cult while continually biting the “hope” bait, they’ll continue.

New Scientific Study Shows that Sunlight Can Prevent Skin Cancer

Sunlight Prevents Skin Cancer

Since the 1980s, physicians and cancer groups have regularly warned the public against the potential health dangers of direct sunlight on skin. As a result, many people have stayed out of the sunlight completely, covered their limbs even in warm weather or slathered themselves with UV protection products, all in the interest of lowering their risk of melanomas.

However, more recent findings indicate that this kind of nearly vampiric avoidance of the sun may not benefit your cancer odds after all.

A 2009 study by a group of Leeds University researchers found that higher levels of Vitamin D were linked to improved skin cancer survival odds. Other studies have found that Vitamin D has a connection to a strong immune response in the body. In fact, Vitamin D may hasten the death of tumor cells.

Unfortunately, most people have low levels of Vitamin D, leaving them at higher risk for a host of diseases including breast cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, cervical cancer, rickets and osteoporosis.

“It’s common for the general public to have low levels of vitamin D in many countries,” said Professor Julia Newton Bishop of the Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine and author of the Leeds study. “Melanoma patients tend to avoid the sun as sunburn is known to increase the risk of melanoma. We use sunshine to make vitamin D in the skin, so melanoma patients’ levels of vitamin D may be especially low.”

Bishop also noted that people can get more Vitamin D through dietary sources such as fatty fish. She points out that balance is key, as extremely high levels of Vitamin D can have a negative effect on health.

The mainstream media continues to run stories every summer warning people against the sun even two years after the Leeds study. While hours of sunbathing may be risky behavior for your long-term health, receiving a moderate amount of sunlight while out gardening or walking is actually as good for you as eating a low-fat diet and engaging in regular exercise. In fact, laying off the sunscreen may help you not only absorb sunshine into your skin to help fight tumors, but also helps you avoid the chemicals in most commercial sun blocking products. Some studies have indicated that these chemicals can actually generate harmful free radicals in the body.

The Health Benefits of Cinnamon

Benefits of Cinnamon have been known for over 5,000 years and were recognised by the Egyptians, Ancient Romans, and in Ayurvedic Medicine in Ceylon. Cinnamon is the brown bark of the Cinnamon tree, and is available in a dried, tubular form known as a quills, or as a Ground powder.

Benefits of Cinnamon include

• lower LDL cholesterol ( the bad cholesterol ), total cholesterol, and triglycerides.

• have a regulatory effect on blood sugar levels, making it particularly helpful for people that suffer from type 2 diabetes.

• have an anti-clotting effect on the blood.

• inhibit bacterial growth and food spoilage when added to food, making it a natural food preservative.

• boost cognitive function and memory when smelt.

• a source of manganese, fibre, iron, and calcium.

• the combination of calcium and fibre in cinnamon can help to remove bile, which prevents damage to colon, which helps prevent colon cancer.

• stop the growth of bacteria and fungi (such as the common yeast, Candida)

However you must ensure that you buy real Cinnamon and not Cassia a substitute for real Cinnamon. The Cinnamon sold in the USA and Canada is mostly Casssia.

Research on Cinnamon

Studies have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol.

Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes.

In some studies, cinnamon has shown an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections.

In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.

It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.

In a study at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month.

When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.

One study found that smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.

Researchers at Kansas State University found that cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices.

It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.
