(NaturalNews) The Calgary Sun recently reported that the city's 15th annual CIBC Run for the Cure -- the city's largest volunteer fundraising event to raise money for cancer research -- raked in more than $1.5 million, but critics call it and similar fundraising runs for cancer a scam on the public organized by wealthy pharmaceutical companies.

"The idea that people can help find a cure for cancer by paying money to run in circles is preposterous," said natural health author and cancer industry critic Mike Adams. "These 'race for the cure' activities are grandiose circus acts based on two cruel lies promoted by the for-profit cancer industry. The first lie is that there isn't already a cure for cancer, because there are dozens of genuine cancer cures from the world of natural medicine. The second lie is that cancer can only be cured through patented synthetic chemicals created by corporations that don't even know what causes cancer in the first place."

More than 15,000 runners and walkers dressed in creative pink and white outfits -- many of them cancer survivors or friends and relatives of people battling cancer -- turned up for the Calgary race, which the race promoters believe set a fundraising record for the event. However, Adams -- author of critical political cartoons on Race for the Cure and the cancer industry -- says pharmaceutical firms with deep pockets have convinced the public to foot the bill for researching new drugs.

"What these cancer run participants are never told is the truth -- that their money is being used to subsidize research efforts of the wealthiest corporations in the world who will turn around and charge patients hyper-inflated prices for patented chemicals that don't even cure cancer," Adams said.

Adams claims the media is partly to blame for the scam, since news outlets frequently cover the financial success of such races, but never report on how the money is spent researching cancer cures. In the three decades since the "war on cancer" began, billions of dollars have been spent in search of a cancer cure, Adams says, with no viable cure in sight from pharmaceuticals.

However, a number of safe and inexpensive natural remedies have proven effective at curing and preventing cancer, including vitamin D therapy (reduces breast cancer risk by 50 percent), curcumin -- the pigment that gives the spice curry its yellow color, green tea, rainforest herbs like Una de Gato, Chinese medicine herbs, fish oils and various plant nutrients such as lycopene. Patients can also reduce their risk of cancer by shedding excess fat, exercising on a regular basis, and avoiding exposure to toxic chemicals in foods, drugs, personal care products and cleaning products, Adams says.
