There has been a huge effort for many decades to direct attention away from toxins. If toxins were recognized as primary causers of cancer, this would focus attention on the industries which produce toxins as well as the companies whose products contain toxins.
Consequently, many of those who cause cancer have joined together to direct research away from toxins and towards such outdated areas as genetic cancer causes.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 Both the NCI and the American Cancer Society, like other cancer agencies and organizations, continue to cling to the outdated and disputed theory that genetics are the main cause of cancer.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.
