Still, the prediction is certainly less than optimistic; the researchers also noted that ages of women afflicted with breast cancer will shift by 2030. New cases in women ages 70-84, for example, is expected to increase from 24 percent to 35 percent.
While the news is alarming, one has to wonder if it truly is all that surprising.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation: a cause that causes breast cancer
After all, it’s no secret that Big Pharma, Big Food and the medical industry are often aligned, with their profits more cared for than the patients themselves. The sick reality is that people’s illnesses — in this case breast cancer patients — are toyed with since treatments said to improve health are actually destroying individuals’ health, making them worse off. But that’s okay, you see, because in the end, the medical industry walks away with yet greater profits.
A perfect example of this is the Susan G. Komen Foundation. People sign up for their events in droves, walking in an effort to raise breast cancer awareness and donate money to the cause, yet what they aren’t necessarily aware of is that the Komen Foundation owns stock in General Electric. Ah, the pieces of the puzzle start to come together now.
Why does that matter?
Even scientists have warned against the Komen Foundation, saying that their ads are false, riddled with inaccurate and misleading statements pertaining to breast cancer screening. Prestigious medical journals, too, have made it clear that the Komen Foundation skews information that ends up tricking women into thinking early detection is the key to better breast health.
Indeed, the Komen for the Cure Foundation is a scam. Always be sure to do your research when considering donating to a “worthy” cause by checking the site’s list of corporate partners. Then do some digging on what medical devices and pharmaceuticals they develop and ask yourself if the relationship is one that sets well with your own health needs and gut instinct.
Healthy ways to fight breast cancer
Rather than rely on races for cures and donating to a cause that causes more health issues than they fight, consider turning to natural alternatives designed to provide your body with healing nutrients.
A diet that shuns foods that are heavily processed, sugary and genetically modified is best for overall health (breast or otherwise); turning to a diet that primarily focuses on organic fruits and vegetables is ideal. Choosing the level of strictness is, of course, entirely up to you.
