Cancer is a Political Disease

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is exclusively sponsored by Zeneca Pharmaceuticals, a U.S. subsidiary of Imperial Chemical Industries. Focusing narrowly on mammography, their slogan is, “Early Detection is Your Best Prevention,” which is nonsense, since if your cancer can be detected it’s too late to prevent it.

Zeneca earns $300 million yearly from sales of the carcinogenic herbicide Acetochlor, while simultaneously marketing Tamoxifen, the world’s best-selling cancer therapy drug, and running a chain of eleven U.S. cancer treatment centers.

Chemical manufacturers try to deflect attention away from the fact that 90 to 95% of all cancer is caused by exposure to carcinogens.

Call me crazy, but don't you think that they might be trying to prevent death?

Cancer is a result of a body's cells attacking themselves. If corporate fat cats killing their own customers isn't cancer, I don't know what is.
