October is breast cancer awareness month. It was created to help fund the burgeoning breast cancer industry. To achieve their ends of putting more and more money into the pockets of Big Pharma and people at the top of pseudo-charity corporations, there are no limits.
Now, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the pinkwashing champs, have sunk to a new low with their Promise Me perfume. It contains toxic chemicals, including:
Toluene is banned by the International Fragrance Association. Any hormone disruptor has the potential of causing disease. Estrogen mimickers are implicated in causing breast cancer!
Following is a brief video that tells a little about the perfume:
Susan G. Komen is a fundraising powerhouse. So where does the money go? Their 2010 consolidated financial statement lists:
In 2009-2010, they reported the following salaries:
Think of all the people just scraping by who have been making donations to the Susan G. Komen Foundation or buying from their company in the hope that they’re doing something good. Think of yourself and compare your income with this list. And then think of how they beg for money from you.
For all the money pouring into Susan G. Komen and others also out there begging, breast cancer is becoming more and more common, while survival rates aren’t going down—unless you include the extra years of life accounted for by earlier detection. Obviously, something is awry with their focus.
Their corporate partners include Merck pharmaceuticals, General Mills, whose products can only fuel cancer, and a host of major corporations—all going along for the publicity it brings them.
Susan G. Komen’s research focuses almost exclusively on bringing women into treatment as early as possible and finding more drugs that Big Pharma can profit from. This is a money maker for all of them. Why would they want to cure breast cancer? It would be like killing the goose that lays golden eggs.
