(NaturalNews) Today's installment is the conclusion of the series on the American Cancer Society (ACS).Conclusion:
The American Cancer Society is far from the only charity or other organization whose problems and self-interests are more of a problem than a solution in the fight against cancer; it is just the biggest and most visible. The ACS's example vividly illustrates why the "War on Cancer" will never be won so long as those who cause and profit from cancer are in control.
Instead of the cure we were promised 40 years ago, what we have gotten for all the billions of dollars spent is a bloated cancer industry, including charitable organizations and government agencies, whose continued existence, salaried positions and benefits depend on NOT finding a cure for cancer.
A vivid illustration (of how companies that cause cancer and profit from cancer influence charitable organizations as well as cancer treatments and research) can be found in the in-depth article "Breast Cancer Deception - Hiding the Truth Beneath a Sea of Pink":http://www.tbyil.com/breast-cancer-deception.htm
As detailed in the article, the Breast Cancer Awareness Movement (BCAM) was started and controlled by a chemical company whose toxic emissions were one of the largest cancer causers in the United States. To this very day, the BCAM continues to be controlled by companies, who seek to divert attention away from their toxic and unhealthy products and who direct research and treatment towards highly profitable products and services by companies who play large roles in BCAM.
The kind of deception and industry ties which are found in the ACS and the BCAM movement are also found in virtually all of the organizations and entities connected with cancer, whether it is fundraising organizations, government agencies or the cancer drug and treatment industries.
Hopefully someday we will abandon the failed system of trying to cure
cancer by cutting out, poisoning out or burning out the symptoms of cancer without addressing the root causes. Perhaps then we can also end suppression of alternative therapies and begin focusing on the true causes of cancer
, cancer prevention and therapies which really work. A good start would be to stop wasting so much money and efforts on those who are part of the problem. A January 10th, article in the Morehead City, NC "News Times" reported on one such person who decided to stop wasting their efforts.
Vernon Hill, a successful "Relay for Life" volunteer leader who had raised nearly 900 thousand dollars for the ACS, resigned after his internet research found that high ranking officers of the American Cancer Society
were making as much as a million dollars a year with benefits, like a company car and lucrative pensions. He also found that a very small percentage of the money goes to actual research.
The same network of cancer causers and cancer profiteers has ruled the war on cancer for 40 years. For the most part, their only successes have been in fattening their pockets and in creating a system which prevents research and treatments which could make a difference. The sooner the public wakes up to the truth about the failed war on cancer and the organizations, which have become part of the problem instead of the solution, the sooner we will be able to realize true cancer prevention and lasting cures.
Though not as well known as the bigger charities and foundations, there are organizations without industry ties which do not suppress alternative healing or research into toxins and other true causes of cancer.
