Why Don’t We Have Breast Cancer PREVENTION month?

Why Do We Have Breast Cancer Awareness Month

instead of Breast Cancer PREVENTION month?

Pink ribbon campaigns are everywhere.

It is apparently a good marketing strategy to get behind Breast Cancer Awareness month. All this money and effort and we aren’t getting any answers.

 

Do you know anyone who is not aware of breast cancer? We know already.

Is this really a disease we can cure by shopping for more pink products and eating pink cupcakes?

I’m not trying to be disrespectful, after all I was once (wrongly) diagnosed with breast cancer myself … but this campaign is infiltrating everything from Kohl’s to the NFL.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month has taken on a life of its own and is just another marketing campaign for many companies.  Now there’s a month-long holiday called PinkTober. 

 

Save Lids, Save Lives!

Remember how we were all supposed to buy tons of Yoplait Yogurt, save the lids, mail in the lids and this would magically save lives! Looks like Dannon is the yogurt we are supposed to buy this year to fight cancer.

Many store brands of yogurt are using highly processed ingredients. If you really want to fight against cancer, stop eating highly processed ingredients found in these artificially flavored desserts called yogurt.

 

 

Sugar fuels cancer cells.

We all have cancer cells circulating in our bodies. What causes some to grow and divide and cause problems? Food additives and sugar for starters.

“It’s been known since 1923 that tumor cells use a lot more glucose than normal cells. Our research helps show how this process takes place, and how it might be stopped to control tumor growth,” says Don Ayer, Ph.D., a Huntsman Cancer Institute investigator and professor in the Department of Oncological Sciences at the University of Utah.

Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt with carmine

 

This container of Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt has 42 grams of carbs. That turns into 10.5 tsp of sugar in your blood. Sugar was added to this yogurt, but not strawberries.

 

The damaging ingredients besides sugar include modified corn starch, natural flavor (code for unnatural chemical), Potassium Sorbate and carmine (aka, squashed red bugs).

 

 

 

 

How much yogurt do we have to eat to fund breast cancer?

100 containers?

Gee, if I eat 100 containers of yogurt, I imagine that Yoplait will donate about $4 to the cause. Meanwhile, I get to eat roughly 21 cups of sugar so that I can feed my cancer cells, increase my cholesterol and get fat?  . . . Uh, no thanks.

 

Wait, what about the red dye in all these pink awareness foods?

 

think before you pinkIf the red food isn’t colored with carmine then it is colored with toxic food dyes like Red #40.

17 food dyes have been banned in the U.S. because they cause cancer, yet we still have 7 in use: Red 3, Blue 1, Blue 2, Green 3, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, and Red 40.

“Each year, Americans eat (as food dyes), swallow (as pill coatings or medicinal syrups) or rub on themselves (as cosmetics) 6.4 15 million pounds of these 7 dyes, mostly in food. (6.4 million was in 1985. It is now well over 15 million pounds per year.)”

 

Here’s the information that the American Cancer Society and Susan G Komen should be telling the public.

If you want to avoid cancer, support your body.

1. Stop eating artificial food dye, artificial sweeteners, processed, refined and adulterated food products. Don’t eat lunch meat, hot dogs and ham with nitrites that turn into carcinogens, nitrosamines.  Instead eat real food, organic when possible. Eat a lot of vegetables and a small amount of fruit. Choose poultry, meat and eggs from organic, grass-fed sources. Buy wild-caught fish and avoid farm-raised fish. Eat healthy fats like real butter, coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil. Drink half your body weight in ounces of pure water.

2. Get to the bottom of your food sensitivities since they will impair your immune system and open the door to many chronic diseases and possibly cancer.

3. Get your Vitamin D3 levels up to a minimum of 50 ng/ml. Several studies show that Vitamin D3 supplementation reduces the risk of breast cancer, plus other forms of cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

4. Get rid of products with known toxins and carcinogens. Find personal care and home care products that do not contain harmful chemicals.

 

think before you pink washing

If you want to support Breast Cancer Prevention and stop corporations from profiting on the exploitation of this horrible disease, then consider giving to a group called Breast Cancer Action.

Breast Cancer Action is the watchdog of the breast cancer movement. They are able to tell the truth about the epidemic because they do not accept funding from entities that profit from or contribute to cancer, including the pharmaceutical industry.

Pinkwashing

Breast Cancer Action coined the term pinkwashing as part of their Think Before You Pink® campaign.

Pinkwasher: (pink’-wah-sher) noun. A company or organization that claims to care about breast cancer by promoting a pink ribbon product, but at the same time produces, manufactures and/or sells products that are linked to the disease.

 

 

 

 

Questions Before You Buy Pink

See the list of questions from Breast Cancer Action

Example: Does this purchase put you or someone you love at risk for exposure to toxins linked to breastcancer?

What is the company doing to ensure that its products are not contributing to the breastcancer epidemic?

In considering a pink ribbon purchase, does the product contain toxins or otherwise increase our risk of breast cancer?

EXAMPLE: In 2011, Susan G. Komen for the Cure commissioned a perfume called Promise Me that contains unlisted chemicals that are regulated as toxic and hazardous, have not been adequately evaluated for human safety, and have demonstrated negative health effects. Although Komen said they would reformulate future versions of the perfume, without official adoption of the precautionary principle, there is no guarantee that future versions would be better.
