Quotes On Cancer Research
Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.
Linus Pauling Ph.D. (1901-1994), two times Nobel Prize winner
There are repeated public fundraising appeals to help find a cancer cure, such as the yearly US Postal Services release of a new "Fund the Cure" breast cancer stamp to help fund breast cancer research. Instead of the normal $.37 for a stamp in 2004, this one costs $.40, with the additional $.03 going to research. If all stamps were sold, it would raise an additional $35,000,000 for vital breast cancer research. Through email and other campaigns, well-meaning men and women are urged to go out and purchase some of these stamps and e-mail your friends to do the same. It takes so little to do so much in this drive.
A lucid comment by Arthur C. Brown:
As critically important as the breast cancer effort is, the postage stamp initiative just isn't the answer... throwing money at the problem won't do a thing. I am very sensitive to this issue as my own mother died of breast cancer. What was done to her body in the name of "therapy" is something I will never forget. I won't go into details except to say here I am because of it. The problem is where the money raised will actually end up. To me, more funds taken from our pockets is simply throwing good money after bad. It usually ends up in improving the big three conventional treatments: radiation, drugs and surgery. Three extremely profitable ones, it must be pointed out. Virtually ALL of the billions poured into cancer research since president Nixon declared war on it in the 70's has been gone to developing new and improved versions of those three. That's not an answer. The money will also end up in the hands of the huge international medical corporations like Sandoz, Bayer, Pfizer and Ciba-Geigy by way of their cozy relationships with public and private research centers - those that eagerly produce patentable drugs and other kinds of treatments for them. Operational word: patentable. The money will filter down to a galaxy of state and federal bureaucracies, lawyers and private foundations that live large off the endless supply of cancer "research" funds. The cancer business is a major player in the world culture, an economic pillar. There are countless books on this disturbing issue. One of the best is "World Without Cancer" by G. Edward Griffin. My favorite example is the American Cancer Society. It has been around since 1913. OK, what does it have to show for all the millions donated? Correction, billions. Cancer rates are higher than ever. It's simply a mouthpiece for the federal bureaucracy. The answer lies in prevention and alternative treatments - what we talk about right here [note: the cancercured discussion group]. In other words, we are the answer, not them. YOU are the answer. Not huge, wealthy, government agencies, foundations, corporations, private societies and the like. They've had their day. The way out is PUBLIC PRESSURE on government and medical bureaucracies forcing them to open up to safe, proven, inexpensive, non-patentable, alternative treatments. Those that have quietly helped millions worldwide for decades. The kind they hate. They must learn them and use them. The answer lies in us working to raise the public awareness regarding all the options today - not just the big three. There are about 100 or so (yes, 100) alternative cancer treatments ignored, suppressed or unknown by the conventional system. This has to change. Bottom line? To me the cure for breast cancer - and all the others - is the INTERNET! No better tool exists for us. We are all co-contributors to the information pool and now can spread the word quickly and easily online - and off for that matter. They've had 100 years to deal with cancer and failed us. As Ted Turner said, "Lead, follow or get out of the way". They can't lead. They won't follow. It's up to us.
