Did You Ever Wonder Why?

Have you ever wondered why after all the billions of dollars spent, the years of research, and the time devoted to talking about it, why there has been no discernible “cure” for cancer?  A lot of corporations and people are getting wealthy over cancer research, drugs and care.  A lot of people with cancer are going broke and dying.  But there is no “cure” in sight.  There is a large incidence for either the same type of cancer to recur, or a new kind of cancer to “crop up”.  Why is that?

Why does one of the best-known foundations, the Susan Komen Foundation take money from Yoplait, whose products contain a known carcinogen that is factor in causing breast cancer?  Why does only 20% of the money the foundation raises go toward research for a cure?  These are all valid questions, and I’m not just referring to this one foundation, I’m using it as an example.  The rest of the cancer foundations also take money directly from corporations that sell products that contain carcinogens, too.

Because a plant-based diet has been scientifically proved to be beneficial to slowing and stopping the growth of cancer, I was surprised to find that this does not appear on the American Cancer Society website.  Instead, they tell you to “limit” your amount of processed meats and red meat.  Again, they don’t let you know that these are listed as carcinogens.  Where is a concerned person supposed to go to get scientifically backed information?  The answer is simple.  Read How not to Die, by Dr. Michael Greger and go on his website https://nutritionfacts.org/

What do you think of these facts?  Have you wondered about the amount of money spent on research, drugs and care?  Do you think that this research will find a cure for cancer?  Let me know in the comments below.

  1. The commodification of the food and health industry is a malaise in itself.
    My recent post somewhat addresses it.
