Great article from www,thetruthaboutcancer.com about why Cancer Research isn’t Focused On the True Cause of Cancer.
Since the war on cancer was declared half a century ago, hundreds of billions of dollars have been poured into cancer research. However, despite annual pronouncements of cures and breakthroughs that are just around the corner, all that research has failed to keep the incidence of cancer from continuing to increase. Most of the small reductions in cancer deaths are due mostly to earlier detection which increases five year survival rates – the yardstick conventional medicine uses to determine success.
There is a very good explanation for why cancer research has failed so badly…
It has been directed away from the true main cause of most cancer – toxins. In early years, such misdirection could be partially explained by the lack of understanding about the nature and causes of cancer. In recent decades, however, cancer research has been directed away from toxins even as the evidence has mounted that toxins are indeed the primary cause of cancer. The reasons for misdirecting cancer research are two-fold:
Covering up the culpability of those who produce toxins and sell toxic products
Greed on the part of mainstream medicine and others who profit from cancer
As an example of the way cancer causes are covered up and the greed that drives the cancer industry, consider the marketing of “pink.” Many of the companies who are part of the hugely publicized Breast Cancer Awareness Movement (BCAM) sell pink-themed products which contain cancer causing toxins.
The Great Pink “Cancer Cover-Up”
Consequently, many of those who cause cancer have joined together to direct research away from toxins and towards such outdated areas as genetic cancer causes. To make sure they keep the spotlight off toxins, cancer-causing companies have endeavored to place representatives in key positions in both government agencies and non-profit organizations. Such agencies and organizations include the National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society (ACS), and the Breast Cancer Awareness Movement.
The evidence is overwhelming that the primary cause of cancer is environmental, and thus preventable. Yet the National Cancer Institute refuses to acknowledge toxins as a major cause. It consistently understated the connection, maintaining that only 6% of all cancer cases stem from environmental and occupational carcinogens.
In 2010, the President’s Cancer Panel provided strong confirmation that exposure to toxic chemicals is an important and under-recognized risk factor for cancer. Right on cue, the industry-influenced American Cancer Society attempted to refute the panel’s conclusions. Both the NCI and the American Cancer Society, like other cancer agencies and organizations, continue to cling to the outdated and disputed theory that genetics are the main cause of cancer.
As Naturopathic Doctor Loretta Lanphier reported in “Genetic Cancer Theory Disproven Yet Continues to be Propagated,” a succession of scientific findings beginning with studies conducted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries led scientists to suggest that cancer is genetic and is caused by a sequence of DNA mutations in the gene. Coupled with this research was the discovery of the oncogene by Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT’s) Dr. Robert A. Weinberg. The well reported nature of these findings began the spark of the widespread belief that cancer is in fact genetic, which continues to this day.
Dr. Lanphier also reported, “As you may have not heard, Dr. Weinberg reversed his original theory twelve years ago after discovering that less than one DNA base in a million appeared to have been miscopied, concluding that not enough defect existed to cause cell mutation. His exact words: ‘Something was very wrong. The notion that a cancer developed through the successive activation of a series of oncogenes had lost its link to reality.’
More recently, in 2005, the directors of the world’s largest cancer research center in Houston, Texas, announced that cancer’s prime cause is not genetic. Despite the magnitude of these reports, they’ve been widely overlooked by the mainstream media.”
There is no greater example of the great cancer cover-up than the Breast Cancer Awareness Movement. BCAM was created by the Imperial Chemical Company, since bought out by AstraZeneca, which was recognized at the time of the inception of the BCAM as the second largest producers of carcinogens in the United States. Imperial Chemical was soon joined by chemical companies, cosmetic companies, food companies, and others whose products caused or contained cancer-causing toxins. BCAM has endeavored to keep the focus off toxins since the very beginning, including directing research almost solely towards genetics.
How Greed Drives the Cancer Industry
The cancer industry has grown to be a financial Goliath worth hundreds of billions of dollars in profits each year. Included in this industry, of course, are all the doctors, nurses, hospitals, labs, technicians, hospices, chemotherapy drug makers, and X-Ray machine and film makers. But the cancer industry also includes huge salaries, perks, and other expenses in numerous government agencies and non-profit organizations. The inescapable reality is that all those profits, salaries, and perks can only be maintained, much less increased, if we do NOT find a cure for cancer.
Non-Biased Cancer Research and Prevention Organizations
Although they receive a small pittance compared to the money spent on mainstream cancer research, there are cancer organizations out there who appear to be independent of ulterior influences and are working to actually make a difference. A partial list includes:
The Independent Cancer Research Foundation
The Annie Appleseed Project
The Cancer Prevention Coalition
The Breast Cancer Fund
When you look at how cancer research continues to be misdirected to this very day – despite all the evidence about what really causes cancer – there is an obvious conclusion. The failure to direct efforts towards finding a cure for cancer has been deliberate. As with mainstream medicine in general, greed and profits are foremost and our health takes a distant second place. It does not appear that this will change any time soon, so those of us who care will just have to keep spreading the truth as far and wide as we can.
