Nature can help too ...

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/259069.php

So ... why are some people so against any of the natural substances that can help our bodies fight cancer, of any kind and not just breast cancer?  Why isn't more notice taken of the Environmental factors which are influencing our chances of developing cancer?  In 1964 there was a 1 in 20 chance of developing breast cancer during your life.  In 1971 Richard Nixon declared 'war' on cancer.  By 1981 there was a 1 in 14 chance and now it is 1 in 8.  TRILLIONS of $, £, Euros, and other currencies have been spent on trying to find a cure for cancer ... or have they?

Less than 3% of the money donated to breast cancer research is used for trying to find ways of dealing with Metastatic Breast Cancer, which is the kind that kills hundreds of thousands of men and women annually.  Please note that I mentioned that this is a disease which also kills men - a fact which is often ignored.  The number of men who die is small in comparison to the number of women who die but since when did one life become more valuable than another for any reason ... and gender certainly isn't a reason.

Where has all the money gone?

Why are we being told that breast cancer rates are improving?

When I was born I had a 1 in 20 chance ... by the time I was diagnosed with breast cancer it was 1 in 8.  NEWS FLASH - them ain't great odds and they are NOT getting better.  I am not a statistician and even I can spot that this isn't the improvement that we are being told there is.
