The American Cancer Society Scandal

Hard to believe but true - the American Cancer Society prevents real cancer cures

Be sure to old onto your hat if you are wearing one because I’m going to propose to you that the American Cancer Society is the worst nonprofit organization on the planet. But first let me acknowledge a few things. If you’re like maybe 98% of the public, you support the American Cancer Society. You might even be a strong and loyal advocate for their cause.

You should be commended for supporting the ACS

More than likely you have helped raise money for the ACS or sponsored one of their rallies or races or donated through your workplace. You should be commended for doing that. It means you care about finding a cure for cancer, and you want to end the suffering.

There is a very high probability you have already lost one or more loved ones to cancer as well. My heart goes out to you if that is the case.

You might even know people who work for the ACS at the local level. They, too, are good people. They probably bust their rear ends to put the different programs on to make sure they go well and recruit lots of new sponsors.

I just want you to know that my full on expose against the ACS is not an attack on you in any way, shape or form. You tried to help. Quite simply, you didn’t know that your good nature was taken advantage of by this awful organization.

The ACS is not what it appears to be

What you didn’t know that is the ACS has actively worked against real cancer cures for its entire history.

Yes, I said against.

You see, this isn’t an attack against the American Cancer Society for raising as much as a billion dollars a year. If they were actually helping rather than suppressing real cancer cures, I’d be all for them 100+% and would like to see them raise twice what they are raising today.

Nor is it an attempt to expose them for not helping cancer victims financially. That isn’t their role, so I don’t fault them for that.

My complaint is far more serious than any of those arguments.

It’s highly unlikely that you’ve ever heard anything like this before. So you’re probably more than a little skeptical. But I assure you, everything I’m saying here and in the video is true. I came across this unhappy news while doing research for The Doctor Who Cures Cancer. I’ve seen the sordid side of the ACS – the part that they have kept from you.

I can’t emphasize enough just how diabolical their actions have been.

Unnecessary suffering for 30 Million

What they have done is nothing short of disgusting and despicable. Their actions have resulted in a huge amount of unnecessary suffering for about 30 million people in the US along with upwards of 15 million deaths.

Not all of the people with cancer could have been saved, but for almost all, their pain and suffering could have been greatly reduced or eliminated. Many of the deaths and almost all the pain can be laid directly at the feet of the American Cancer Society home office due to their egregious actions.

Job #1 of the ACS is not to find a cure, but to encourage you and your family to get tested early and often. Sounds good, right? Well, maybe not.

All the details are explained in the cartoon video I've made for you.

Job #2 is to smear and destroy the reputations of innovative cancer researchers.

Why that is so important is also explained in the video.

We need to start anew - thank goodness it can be easy

I hope you’ll share this video with your family and friends and anyone else you care to share it with. Until the American Cancer Society is exposed for what its real mission is, there will NEVER be a real cure for cancer that is available in any doctor’s office.

You can do more to cure cancer than you can sponsoring 100 races for the cure

In fact, this video will do more to cure cancer and stop the suffering than sponsoring 100 Races For The Cure. I say 100 because that is a number we can wrap our heads around. In reality, the real number has no end. No matter how many races and events they hold, those events will only serve to delay cures for you and your family.

The American Cancer Society has been wildly successful in keeping cures from you and your family for 67 years while they funnel you and your relatives into methods backed by their true friends, the dispensers of chemo and radiation.

When you watch the video you will hear probably for the first time what the ACS is really about. Again, feel free to share this because the American Cancer Society will continue to march on with more unnecessary pain, suffering and death in its wake until you do.

When the real facts are known, then you and your children and grandchildren will have real cancer cures available to you. Sixty-seven years of unnecessary delay has been more than enough wait time. Aren't we overdue for a cure?

Let’s start talking about this, too. Your comments are most welcome. Feel free to use the Facebook and Twitter options as well.

An important point. Getting a mammogram can mean a new patient for America's cancer treatment industry. Doctors keep using mammograms, an obsolete technology from the 1940's, because "I have to pay the equipment off", instead of thinking of their patients' health and comfort. Instead of getting squeezed between cold x-ray plates, many women have discovered there is a newer, proven system called thermograms that is not only more comfortable but more accurate than mammograms, and without all the radiation! Most women do not realize that radiation exposure adds up!

Hi Mark,

That's so right.

In the video mammograms are discussed in a powerful way. In case you haven't seen it, you're invited to go check it out.

The best to you.

Thank you, Sharon. You've provided a great article.

Because the ACS raises so much money, most critics have put their focus on the revenue side of the question.

I worked for Vitamin World for four or five years. While there I didn't always understand why they did certain things. Later I found out.

To understand, you first need to know that VW is a subsidiary of Nature's Bounty, and is only a small part of the company's revenues and produced almost none of its profits.

The real agenda of VW was to provide detailed marketing information for the larger company which sold the same products under different labels through drug store chains and grocery stores.

Nature's Bounty wasn't overly concerned about VW not producing a large profit. The stores acted as a huge marketing research tool. NB could go to the grocery chains and tell them exactly what were the most popular selling products in their general area.

In other words, by operating the VW stores, NB was able to garner hundreds of millions of dollar worth of market research and have it paid for by the operations of the various retail stores!

So why am I telling you this?

The ACS is the Vitamin World of cancer marketing. It's real job isn't so much the raising of money as it is in adding advocates. Each time someone makes a small donation, they become loyal advocates. It's a well known fundraising phenomenon that donors become loyal through their donations.

The American Cancer Society takes that loyalty and persuades its advocates to push for more cancer testing. The ACS calls it cancer awareness.

It is a sales funnel for the cancer industry, and the funnel is paid for by the advocates! Men and women get tested by the millions. Sooner or later nearly half will need cancer treatment, and of course they will opt for the types of treatments supported by the ACS.

Then, as is discussed in the video, there is the back door where the ACS keeps its trash. They take all the good will from its millions of advocates and uses that good will to smear and crush innovate cancer researchers.

This ensures that only cancer treatments the average person can get is the same stuff that has proven to be a failure for 67 years.

Thus the billion donated by the people, produces another $160 billion in cancer revenues. It is really quite the system.

The best to you.

the ACS helped my dad pay for his meds and would have helped him pay for treatment-related travel had we applied.

i hate to tell you this because you won't agree, but breast cancer death rates are lower than ever because of the treatments you say don't work.

mammograms are far more reliable than thermograms.

That figures... no wonder there a lot of those organizations for just one area. However, my source reveals that a book called ____ for the evil genius (i forgot which book) that had an invention that it had a history of curing cancer, when i found out about it last year, i kept questioning why doctors kept using radiation therapy, but with your i know, thanks for the heads up

Hi CathyLynn,

Breast cancer rates are not better than they ever were. The so-called cure rate is based on an arbitrary 5-year survival which is nuts when you think about it. If you have any other disease and live for 5 years, are you called cured? Of course not.

So what has happened is that the clock has started sooner because the person's cancer is found sooner. So the person is more likely to live for five years because their cancer was diagnosed 6 months to a year earlier.

Mammograms extend life by 4 days, but they give more women cancer. That is not a worthwhile trade-off.

Another factor for longer survival is the increased reliance on alternative or complementary method since the DSHEA law was passed in 1994. One hundred studies indicate that those who use natural treatments along with their other treatments live TWICE as long as those who don't. That has a huge impact on the survival stats.

I don't know where you get that mammograms are more reliable than thermograms. They find cancers much sooner than 'mammos,' and they don't cause cancer.

Neither mammos or thermos prevent cancer - they merely detect it. We need to get a lot further down the road than merely finding cancer. Many natural approaches do just that. Meanwhile the ACS has ZERO interest in preventing cancer other than smoking cessation. Their goal is to get their advocates into their funnels.

The best to you.

Also, it doesn't appear ANYWHERE, other than breastfeeding benefits lists, that full term breastfeeding is a key PREVENTER of breast cancer. Why is this well known fact not better displayed for the masses? Maybe because big pharma, ACS and formula companies don't want this out there. Makes me sick. Something simple as breastfeeding will prevent breast cancer.

I can't say anything on the video until I watch it, but I myself have felt that disgust about the ACS. I attended a race this past year and it was the hardest thing I'd ever done.

It's easy to support things like that when you believe it's for a good cause, but when you know all of the efforts are simply to raise payroll, it's sickening.

Kelly Eidem:

Perhaps you should watch "A World without Cancer" by Edward Griffon on Google video. This might clear up things as to why ACS is killing people for profit.

Also research what happened to poor Jason Vale. All he wanted to do was get the word out about the cancer cure, and the gov't imprisoned him for it.

I am of mixed feelings on this. On the one hand, as there are many healthcare professionals in the family, I can agree wholeheartedly that the cure for cancer will never be discovered by research groups. Cancer research is a multi-billion dollar industry which has kept chemists, labs, and specialists the world over well-funded and working for almost three generations. Should any of them actually find a cost-effective, foolproof cure for cancer, he’ll get his face on a few magazines, a firm handshake, and then a pink slip. Actually curing cancer is counterproductive to the cancer research industry’s job security, and the sheer number of drugs that pharmaceutical companies produce to help treat cancer and deal with its fallout creates a much higher profit margin than an actual cure would.

However, the sheer prevalence of cancer is such that no organization actually needs or wants more people to become ill than already would. And while thermograms are safer, it is my personal opinion that they should not replace mammograms. Thermograms are geared to detect cells with high metabolic activity and inflamed cells. As such, they miss about 10% of breast cancers. I was among that 10%. Though there is no history of cancer in my family, I had a mammogram every five years and a thermogram every two. The thermogram missed my metaplastic invasive ductal cancer because of its slow, steady growth. The mammogram caught it, but by then it was well developed. It is not simply an either/or situation, as neither method of detection is 100% effective.

With that in mind, I would suggest that the dangers of mammograms and other diagnostic forms which rely upon radiation be made common knowledge. But, ultimately, it is up to the individual to decide whether the risks outweigh the possible benefits.

Checkreality - Thank you. That is a great movie - at least the parts I've seen of it. The narrator has a great voice. Unfortunately, it also puts me to sleep. I'm not kidding! I fight to stay awake, but it's sort of like being hypnotized I guess.

Sky's End - no doubt some of the execs are true believers. If you've seen my video, you discovered that regardless of whether they are true believers or not, the end result is the same when they blackball and smear innovative doctors without studying the methods they condemn.

Thank you, PeggyW, xo and Fit2day. I hope you will watch the video, fit2day. There is info there that is not in my article.

The best to you.

I am here to tell you that a real true cure is just around the corner and will be here soon, real soon, which includes with out the use of Radiation Therapy, Chemo-Therapy, sickening pills and various other kinds of medications that will come close to killing you anyway. My dear friend, Bruce Anderson, is a Certified Bio-Physicist with a degree in medical science, has today, found a way to wipe out cancer with just the use of using certain types of light energy and water.. Its really hard to explain, but he has already proven that his devise does work and will soon be getting funding to continue his research and development on other ways to continue to cure various other diseases that are as of today, killing millions or people world wide. Soon, real soon!!!

Anthony, Angemac and Diana, we will never have a cure for cancer that is widely available until the American Cancer Society is exposed for the rotten organization it is.

It's up to us to make sure that happens.

Thank you, Don.

Hardly anyone is aware of the true purpose of the ACS which is to protect its clients and bring them business.

But until their real motives are widely known, there will never be a real cure for cancer that is allowed to see the light of day. That's why it's important to spread this video far and wide like you are helping to do.

The best to you.

The two major clients of the ACS are GE (X ray and radiation) and Johnson and Johnson (Nicoderm Nicorette Nicotrol Nicoderm CQ Commit Lozenges) The ACS is NOT a non profit or a not for profit. Neither are the Heart or Lung Associations. They are paid by pharma lobby groups.

Youve got it exactly right. These organizations make billions of dollars every year to NOT cure, or truly prevent, diseases. Big-pharma learned it's lesson from things like polio; cure it and there's no future profits.
