Revlon, one of the largest cosmetic companies in the country, known for their supportive stance in breast cancer research, is talking the talk but not walking the walk.
A survey put out by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics uncovered the startling news that the cosmetic giant is selling products that contain cancer-causing and endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Even more disturbing is the fact that the company prides itself on being a champion in the fight against breast cancer. As a result of the survey’s findings, Revlon is under scrutiny by several communities and organizations dedicated to safeguarding consumers from the cosmetics we use. (more…)
If you’ve been noticing promotions about the annual October Breast Cancer Awareness scam that features all sorts of fund raising activities by Susan G. Komen for the Cure and other fund raisers, here’s something to consider written by Mike Adams for a Natural News article published April 22, 2010:
“The cancer industry isn’t even looking for cures for cancer, folks. The cancer scam is just too profitable. It’s a sweet gig and they’re raking in billions of dollars from gullible consumers who continue to be victimized by this fraudulent cancer industry and its dishonest non-profit front groups.” (more…)
The American Cancer Society: Running WITH the Money and AWAY From the Cure – Part 1
by Tony Isaacs
The American Cancer Society (ACS) made news waves when they disputed the findings of the President’s Cancer Panel on the role of toxins in causing cancer. Though the new report echoes what other experts have maintained for years, the ACS went out of its way to attack the report and downplay the role of toxins. Many critics have questioned the ACS’s motives apparent conflicts of interest due to numerous ACS ties to chemical industries influence and donations.
Critics note that the ACS condemnation of the toxins report is far from the first time the Society has taken a stance that benefits those it has ties to while disputing expert reports and studies. Indeed, the ACS dispute of the report is merely the latest in a long line of controversial stances that appear to be self-serving and against the public interest.
Another example is the ACS’s continued support of mammograms. Concerns over the safety and efficacy of mammograms have been widely reported dating all the way back to 1977, including several notable supporting studies supporting such concerns. In spite of those studies and concerns, the ACS has remained a staunch supporter of mammograms. Notably, the ACS has strong ties to the mammography industry. (more…)
The population at large is finally starting to wise up about breast cancer awareness, not so much as it pertains to the prevalence of the disease — you would have to be burrowed up in a hole day and night to not be aware of the existence of breast cancer these days — but rather in regards to how all the “Pink for the Cure” hysteria represents the total commercialization and corruption of the breast cancer industry.

The history of Breast Cancer Awareness Month’s surprising origins is a matter of the public record:
“NBCAM was founded in 1985 as a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of Imperial Chemical Industries (now part of AstraZeneca, maker of several anti-breast cancer drugs). The aim of the NBCAM from the start has been to promote mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer.” ~ Wikipedia
If you doubt Wikipedia as a reliable source, visit the NBCAM website and try to contact them. It will be AstraZeneca that you will required to connect with, as evidenced by the screenshot below.
AstraZeneca, manufacturer of the blockbuster breast cancer drugs Arimidex and Tamoxifen, founded the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 1985, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, in order to promote the widespread adoption of x-ray mammography, whose horrors we have documented elsewhere.

As we find ourselves once again awash in a sea of pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), few people who participate, donate or buy pink-themed products are aware that BCAM has always been a deliberate deception – a “pinkwash” which helps “do-gooder” sponsors hide their own culpability while promoting products which cause cancer.
In the beginning
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) was launched in 1987 by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), a British chemical company which has been a world leader in manufacturing cancer-causing pesticides, plastics and other products. From day one, ICI and later spin-off Zeneca have used BCAM to direct research and prevention efforts away from chemical carcinogens. (more…)
