Pink Ribbon Articles

The Politics Behind the Pink Ribbon - MSNBC October 22nd, 2008
"The saturation of breast cancer awareness has left even some survivors dismayed. Writer, social critic, and former breast cancer patient Barbara Ehrenreich has called the movement “an outbreak of mass delusion,” and “a cult.”

“The products — teddy bears, pink-ribbon brooches, and so forth — serve as amulets and talismans, comforting the sufferer and providing visible evidence of faith,” she has written."

Pink Ribbon Promises - Time Magazine 2006

"Jarmoska is not alone in her suspicion. A growing number of breast-cancer activists and organizations have become concerned that the pink ribbon-- an emblem of breast-cancer awareness since 1992--has been hijacked for marketing purposes, a phenomenon that some call pink washing. Last year the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the nation's largest private charity focusing on breast cancer, urged consumers to start asking questions like how much of the money they spend on pink purchases will actually go to charity, what kind of activities does the charity support and what has its record been?"

Yet Komen still supports pink washing...?

"Pink washing creates a dilemma for charities like Komen, which raises about $30 million a year by working with pink-promotion partners."

Did I read that right? $30 million dollars alone from from ethically illicit marketing campaigns?

So that means we should take Komen's advice and ask Susan G. Komen foundation what percentage of their donations go to where.

Worlds Largest Pink Ribbon 2004 brought to you by 3M also known for Post-it-Notes and animal testing.

3M also provided vaccine technology this year for Safoni-Aventis, a fellow pinkwasher who also claim to do oncology research. Sanofi-Aventis also paid the U.S. government $190 million for pricing fraud of the drug Anzemet which primarily is coupled with oncology and radiation treatment.

Pinkwashing at an All Time High

This is sort of a quickie because I don't want to elaborate on the crappy 'pink' marketing tactics that companies use to steal your money.

It creeps me out when I walk into a grocery store and the first thing I see is a blazen pink display from a company profiting off donations. It's pretty sick actually how the bottom line is fear mongering for profit! Insulting to say the least.

They are clever ads but are for all the wrong reasons.

Number 1 and Number 2 Killer in the US

The number 1 killer in the US is heart disease which is actually UNTREATED
SCURVY and a side effect is heart stoppage. Get your vitamin C through food.

Foods high in vitamin C

red and green bell peppers
brussel sprouts
sweet potatoes

Cancer is the number 2 killer in the US. Hopi, Navajo and Alaskan Indians
and several other tribes around the world (Africa included) never
developed Cancer because they had a steady diet of
nitrilosides which contain Vitamin B17. Vitamin B17 or
Laetrile is shown to be a powerful combatant of cancer.

Foods high in B17:

bamboo sprouts
alfalfa sprouts
lentil sprouts
mung bean sprouts
garbanzo sprouts
whole nuts (bitter almonds)
fava beans

Grocery list:
crunchy sprouts (many of the above sprouts in one package)
Ezekiel Sprouted Grain bread and pasta (many of the above sprouts and millet)
canned tomatoes
sun dried tomatoes
vine ripe tomatoes
buckwheat soba
fire roasted peppers
pickled peppers = Mezetta Roasted red peppers
canned or dried garbanzo, fava, mung, lentils

Sprouting: soak dried beans or lentils in water for 12 hours.
Change water everyday for three days, drain and refrigerate.

Pickling: Same as above only add salt to water.

Vitamin C is proposed to be banned in Canada and is considered
a toxin. You will only be able to get it with a PRESCRIPTION.
What if they decided to ban it in the US. Are they going to
ban orange juice too!

(This is not medical advice. I am a certified sports nutritionist and this is only a compilation of the foods to eat in addition to some of your favorites. If you have been prescribed meds for heart disease or cancer do not stop taking them on the advice from this post. However do your research and question the medications you are prescribed. There is no such thing as alternative medicine but there is such a thing as organized medicine. Know the difference.)
