It’s October and we all know what that means. Pink! From ribbons, to kitchen appliances, workout wear to M & M’s (ah, the irony…), we are bombarded with creating awareness of breast cancer (like there’s one woman unaware of it), promoting mammograms and raising money for the Cure. For more than 25 years, we have been marketed the idea that if we just run one more race; write one more check; buy one more pink ribbon adorned tee shirt, they’ll find the elusive cure they dangle in front of all women.

Did you know that National Breast Cancer Awareness Month was created by a drug company (currently known as Astra Zeneca), who not coincidentally produces breast cancer treatment drugs?

As women, we need to stand together and ask the question that no one wants asked (certainly no one at Susan G. Komen for the Cure). With all the money raised, why are we no closer to this Cure? The statistics tell the truth. This year, more than 192,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, accounting for more than one in four cancers diagnosed. And while it’s true that from 1997 to 2006, there has been a steady decline in breast cancer deaths (1.9 percent a year), breast cancer rates have remained the same since 2003. A woman’s chance of developing breast cancer sometime in her life is a little less than 1 in 8.

With all the races, walks, climbs, crusades, relief funds, white water rafting events (yes, you heard me…) and even recycling for the Cure, you’d think we’d have raised enough money to actually, well, cure breast cancer.

Yes, we have created improved treatments, more targeted therapies, better screening, better ways for a woman to detect her cancer early. But no one is really talking about preventing this plague in the first place! Not one discussion during October places the focus squarely on the lifestyle choices a woman can make to radically reduce her risk…not catch it early, but actually dodge the bullet!

Now before you get your pink panties in a twist, this is not an indictment of all the strong, courageous women who have been diagnosed; who have suffered through devastating treatments; that have walked or run in support of their own strength and survival or the strength and survival of another woman. Okay? I have been through my own struggle with cancer, so I know from whence I speak, as the saying goes. I love these women and their strength.

This is about organizations and corporations who prey on women when they are at their most vulnerable, when they’re sick, frightened, about to lose a symbol of their womanhood. And we fall for it.

People get in a snit when you talk to them about changing their lives and eating food that supports health and wellness. What about their favorite things? What favorite things? Heart disease, stroke, obesity and cancer? Those favorite things? The fact that people get so defensive about the eating habits that make us weak, fat and sick is astonishing to me. Healthy eating creates vitality, well-being, strong immune function, glowing skin and hair, robust bodies. The fact that we can denigrate that and elevate the habits that create the very illnesses that require the founding of all the runs, walks and other awareness-raising events in the parade of the sick is at the root of what is rotting our society.

Here’s something you should know before you pin on your next pink ribbon. The history of this little symbol began in the early 90’s with Charlotte Haley, a woman who made peach ribbons to create awareness that of the National Cancer Institute’s $1.8 billion budget only 5% went to the prevention of breast cancer. When she refused to sell her idea for ribbons to corporations because she thought they would turn the idea ‘too commercial,’ they simply stole it and changed the color to the comforting, soothing pink that is everything that breast cancer is not. And women are encouraged to shop, drive, dress and cook in solidarity with their sisters in disease.

Over 100 million dollars are raised each year for breast cancer research. That’s big business. The corporations, organizations and industries that benefit from all these research dollars diminish or mask the extent of the problem, fail to protect women’s health and divert attention from the importance of finding the causes of breast cancer and having real discussions about how to prevent it.

But then again, I guess we wouldn’t need all those walks, runs, recycling projects, white water rafting and other fund raisers if we really got to the bottom of this and found the Cure.

HERE IS MY STORY...
I am very happy to announce that the cannabis oil is for real. Two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and it was already in stage 4 before I got to hear of the cannabis oil. I had no hope what so ever because the doctors had told me I have few time left. I ordered online from the Rick Simpson cannabis oil and it was delivered to me in 3 days of request along with the prescription immediately I started applying for 6 weeks and the results was wonderful. Don\'t die when you have the cure right beside you. You can create your own cannabis oil but it would be best to contact the right source to get the right quality cannabis oil. In my case I contacted [email protected] they helped me and I am for ever indebted to them just save your life by ordering for the cannabis oil. contact: rick and get the oil treatment from Rick Simpson try it and you will not regret it because it truly works and here is his email: [email protected]

God bless you all and i wish you a quick recovery...

Yet, my life has been dramatically impacted by seizure For years, I went from Doctor to many Neurologists to an Epileptologist trying to find a cause and cure for my seizures. I tried every medication and dosage imaginable but nothing seemed to work.I was Research i read a testimony about someone on a website called www.herbalifecure.jimdo.com who was cured from seizure through herbal medicine. I contacted the doctor, and used his herbal medicine, my epilepsy became a story. Today, I am totally free from seizures after years of struggle with seizure. Thanks Dr.

This vibes has been motivating my spirit and keeping me stronger the more even when I am in pains and in tears. I am Glenna Trish from Ohio, US. My life turned upside down when I found out I was having Fibroid in me and the doctor said I have to undergo surgery in other to remove it but it’s going to come up after some months, inside me my heart was burning like a fire because I don’t want go for any surgery. I keep researching everyday on the internet and keep asking people around me explaining my problem to them to see if they could help me out, I did this for almost two months no result was coming out. One Faithful Morning, when I was in the Church, I met this lady who later called me after service and she told me she saw when I was busy browsing researching about how to get cure to Fibroid without surgery inside the Church, I told her yes if she could help out? She answered Yes, Inside me I was happy at last I have found a way out on how to get rid of this problem, he told me about Doctor Patrick, how he met him and how she was cured too from Fibroid that she was once a patient and his medicines has no side or bad effects. She said to me that doctor Patrick can help me out too, if only I use his herbal medicine, everything is going to be fine and is not going to come up anymore and the cure last forever. I was so happy and I took the details of the doctor, when I got home I visit his website http://patrickherbalhealinghome.my-free.website and read more about him and after that, I contacted him, I paid for the medicine and the tracking number which he used to send the medicine through DHL Courier was given to me, after three days I received it, and I read the instructions, and started using this powerful herbal medicine, I was so surprise that after one week of taking this medicine, have already started seeing changes in my body, I continued using it according to his command for two weeks and after two weeks of using it, I called the family doctor to come and run test on me, I was so surprised when he told me that he can find anything anymore that I have been cured already and there is nothing showing up, I thought he was playing, I visited two extra hospitals and they said the same thing, I took the phone and called Doctor Patrick immediately and thank him for what he has done for me, infact, he was sent by God to heal me and save my Marriage Life. Contact doctor today if you are having any issues with your health on his email address [email protected] and you can read more about him on his websiteaddress http://patrickherbalhealinghome.my-free.website His office is in USA, UK, Canada, Grenada’s, West African Countries and many other countries, here is one of his worker phone number +1 302-583-2195, you can text him or call him then he will direct your call to Doctor Patrick and for those who are in West African Country and other countries you can write to one of his worker on whats-app or talk to him on call and he will direct your call to Doctor Patrick if you wish to speak to him, number is +2348113872021.

Hello my name is Sancho Grecia Pedro base in United State of America, my wife was suffering from Breast Cancer and the doctor told me that there was nothing that he could do to save my beloved wife. Then a friend told me about the Rick Simpson hemp oil that can cure cancer, i told him that my wife’s breast cancer was in the last stage that i don’t think the hemp oil would cure it and he persuaded me to try it, for the love of my wife, i decided to give it a try.
I did some research and i found a doctor who helped me with the cannabis oil to cure my wife’s breast cancer and he assured me that after 4 months the cancer would be no more,here is the email to contact: [email protected]
I bought it and she used it, it worked exactly as the doctor prescribed it. Thanks to doctor Thomas for taking away sorrow in my life. can you all imagine, that my wife have a 6 years old daughter and a 3 years old son, what would i have done. God will bless Dr. RICK Simpson for helping me with cannabis oil and for his support and care.
contact: [email protected] what can i say unto my LORD, all i have to say is THANK YOU LORD.
