I have never been a supporter of the SGK, for more reasons than I care to list here. The pinkwashing campaigns support the cause all right… the cause of selling more of their corporate partners cancer causing products! I wanted to check out the list of the Komen corporate partners, to make sure I wasn’t supporting their agenda either. Luckily, I didn’t have to worry because I had already eliminated most of the partners brands from my shopping list long ago. That’s the cool thing, we get to vote with our dollar everyday.
Why would an organization that was dedicated to curing cancer partner with companies like General Mills, whose processed foods are laden with known carcinogens BHA and BHT? Fiber One bars, for example,contain tons of sugar, dairy, corn syrup,processed oils and BHA which is a known carcinogen, listed by the state of California.
And what gives with all the dairy products? Dairy is also known to promote cancerous cell growth in humans due to IGF-1 (insulin like growth factor), not to mention the antibiotics, hormones added after the fact. Oh, you thought dairy was good for a body? Wipe that silly milk mustache off your face!
Calcium = Good / Dairy = Bad
For further reading, I highly recommend The China Study by T. Colin Campbell to understand why you need plant based calcium, not dairy, in your diet.
And does the rest of the partner list look any better? NO! Check out the link for more butter, sugar, gluten and cholesterol filled animal products…all feeding cancer, all keeping you sick.

A “Fiesta for the Cure”, just fantastic. Next week Komen will slap a pink ribbon on a pack of Marlboros and we can all join the cause by smoking for the cure.
My support is for the work that Dr Neal Barnard is doing with PCRM and The Cancer Project. The focus is on education and prevention through lifestyle and dietary changes. There already IS a cure for cancer. It’s called your body’s immune system.
Treat your body right, and it could save your life.
