I love you, friends, and it upsets me greatly, really, to know so many of you, knowing the below, may think differently. This is not an attack on anyone of you, I just want to share some stuff, that when I found it out myself, I stopped donating to certain cancer charities.
There are noble cancer causes (list below) to which I would still contribute, that are in line with my ethics, and then there are pink KFC buckets type campaigns.
If 82% of people polled say they would not donate to research charities that fund animal experiments, do people really know what the causes they are donating to, do with the money?
We need to maintain our wisdom and our integrity when it comes to which cancer causes or campaigns we are supporting. They are not all equal.
Regarding, finding a cure for cancer: cancer is, I am sorry to break this if you didn’t already know, big business. Conventional cancer treatments are manufactured and sold. Someone is profiting from this.
‘Astra Zeneca developed the pink ribbon campaign. They ALSO PRODUCE chemo and birth control pills. Question everything nature didn’t design’. 1

I am not saying this to cause a stir or be controversial, or upset anyone. I have friends and family who have/ have had cancer. I think we may all have, it’s such an emotive issue. Until now, I have quietly declined to sponsor my friends in ‘Race for Life’ campaigns, without being keen to voice my reasons why, and for not wanting to upset anyone.
If you read all this and still wish to donate, good for you! I just felt differently, and so want to make known what I discovered….
‘Even though it is widely recognised that cancer is largely preventable – lifestyle and environmental factors being responsible for more than 90 per cent of new cases. CRUK, however, continues to fund dozens of animal studies, mostly on mice, at academic and research institutions throughout the UK and overseas.’ 2
Animal research is a key part of Cancer Research UK’s work. You can see images of the animal research in the below resource: 2. (Depending on your view of animals, this may be justifiable to you, but then, especially then, please see the images, just so you know what you are justifying).
Let’s move back to the business point…
What if, for example, medicated facial cleansing pads really DID get rid of spots? (Rather than just made skin tingle and the pads look like filthy residue had been effectively removed). Wouldn’t we all buy one tub and be done? Isn’t that a flawed business model?
Profit and business are the driving forces behind a lot of what we are marketed and ‘sold’.
Some of the powers that be in society do not have our best interests at heart. Governments are influenced by big business, these businesses are driven by profit.
We know, there is big profit in keeping us sick, uninformed, segregated and disenfranchised.
The most effective solutions, are unlikely to be the most profitable, so we may all need to dig a little deeper when it comes to such serious issues as this. To help ourselves and our fellow beings with the best that we can offer. Unfortunately, it may not be as simply as going without make-up and posting a snap with no links.
