Making national headlines just recently, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), along with the Attorneys General in all 50 states, filed charges alleging fraud on the part of four cancer charities. Of the four charities, the Breast Cancer Society and the Children’s Cancer Fund of America have folded as a result of these charges.
The lawsuit will move forward against founder James Reynolds Sr. and the Cancer Fund of America. According to Jessica Rich, chief of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, the charities spent about 97% of donations they received either on private fundraisers or on themselves. Only 3%, she says, went to help actual cancer patients.
Conflicts of Interest in Cancer Charities
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time cancer charities have come under fire for misappropriation of funds. In 2011, Samuel Epstein, MD wrote the eye-opening book titled National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society: Criminal Indifference to Cancer Prevention and Conflicts of Interest.
The work chronicles how these two organizations have unchecked conflicts of interest through ties with pharmaceutical companies who manufacture cancer drugs, pesticide industries, and makers of mammogram equipment. It goes further to illustrate how the American Cancer Society has stalled legislation to protect us against known carcinogens such as glyphosate. Speaking to this end, Epstein writes:
“The ACS has consistently rejected or ignored opportunities and requests from Congress, regulatory agencies, unions, environmental and consumer organizations to provide scientific evidence critical to efforts to legislate and occupational, environmental, and personal product carcinogens.”
American Cancer Society’s Deliberately Spun Data
Chris Wark, who was featured in The Quest for the Cures Continues, has also recently shown how the American Cancer Society’s 2014 Facts and Figures report deliberately spins their data to fraudulently fit their claim that “More Americans than ever are surviving cancer.” In his report, Wark points out that the ACS counts anyone diagnosed with cancer as a survivor, even those diagnosed yesterday.
And Obamacare has done little if anything to solve this glaring problem by forcing people to stay in a broken healthcare system. Poor cancer outcomes have only amplified since President Nixon announced the war on cancer in 1971. It is fair to say that mainstream medicine and its limited methods have lost that war; some estimates project that as many as 50% of the population will experience cancer in their lifetimes.
The Answer to Cancer is Out There, But You Need to Know Where to Look
What none of the above mentioned charities will tackle is why cancer happens in the first place and how to avoid it with real, time-tested non-toxic methods. America and much of the world is experiencing a paradigm shift where people are choosing alternative methods for cancer care, which exclude toxic drugs that poison the body and provide less than ideal long-term survival rates.
The answers are out there and many are now speaking about them freely. The fight against cancer isn’t in the hands of a government, medical system, or charity. The answer will not be found by them, nor will they announce a miracle cure anytime soon.
