The breast cancer awareness group known as Susan G. Komen — think pink ribbons emblazoned on everything during breast cancer awareness month — has stooped to a whole new level of stupidity with claims that organic food may not be safe for women.
On its website, Komen claims that consumption of organic food is “a controversial issue,” as if clean food is some novel concept that only recently emerged as a hippie fad. The group warns that women shouldn’t necessarily opt for organic food over conventional because “research is lacking in this area.”
“[C]laims of higher nutritional value and lower toxic contaminants in organic foods currently have little scientific evidence supporting pronounced benefits,” claims the organization, which purports to be all about preventing and curing breast cancer.
These and other hilariously ignorant claims by Komen are clearly meant to deter women from making positive dietary changes that would actually help them avoid developing breast cancer. Instead, Komen would rather women continue scarfing down buckets of carcinogenic fried chicken from KFC and bottles of alcoholic Mike’s Hard Lemonade, two Komen supporters that stand to suffer financially from women choosing organics instead.
As you may recall, Komen launched a ridiculous “Buckets for the Cure” campaign back in 2010 that Natural News initially thought was some kind of joke or parody. It turned out to be true — Komen had partnered with fast food chain KFC to sell pink buckets of fried chicken to women in order to “end breast cancer forever.”
The obvious derangement in this plan is that KFC’s fried chicken is highly toxic, as the acrylamide chemicals produced during frying have been shown to spur the growth of cancer cells. Not only this, but KFC chicken is loaded with toxic monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is also a known cancer promoter.

If this wasn’t bad enough, Komen also partnered with alcoholic beverage purveyor Mike’s Hard Lemonade, which released a “pinkwashed” bottle of its chemical- and alcohol-laden citrus malt beverage to raise awareness about breast cancer. And the Mars company also released pink-colored versions of its M&M’s candy around the same time.
Ironically, both Mike’s Hard Lemonade and pink M&M’s are loaded with cancer-causing artificial colorings and processed sugars, which Komen not only endorses but refuses to admit could cause women to develop breast cancer.
And yet at the very same time, this fraud of an organization has the audacity to scare women away from organic food, which is really just normal food that people have been consuming for eons, long before the industrial revolution brought us all factory agriculture treated with deadly, cancer-causing chemicals.
Not surprisingly, Komen rakes in more than $55 million a year from seemingly antithetical sponsors like PepsiCo and KFC, which help pay Komen CEO Nancy Brinker’s lavish annual salary exceeding $684,000. Komen is very much a for-profit organization, and it is now abundantly clear that the group is little concerned with actually helping women avoid breast cancer, which in and of itself is a multi-billion-dollar per year industry.
“Researchers [have] found that organically grown crops contain anywhere from 18-69% more antioxidants and 10-100 times less pesticide residue,” explains Mass Report concerning the issue.
“Shouldn’t an organization aimed to fight cancer be more aware of these types of things? Perhaps they are aware and they’re just ignoring it? After all, how would they make $55 million from companies producing synthetic products if everybody started eating organic food?”
