These organizations were founded with good intentions. However, corporate partnerships and sponsoring have introduced some conflicting agendas to organizations that Americans turn to in times of medical crisis. The Health Care System, Pharmaceutical Industry, and Large Food Corporations all get rich by feeding Americans unhealthy food, convincing us that surgery and drugs are the answer, and helping us to “live” as long as possible while relying on these drugs.
Tyson brand foods has a corporate partnership with the American Cancer Society. Tyson owns Jimmy Dean, the makers of “blueberry pancakes with sausage on a stick”. Do you really think they care about your cancer? Is their food healing you or potentially giving you cancer? Pfizer and Merk (both of which are tied to all 5 of these organizations) are 2 of the largest pharmaceutical corporations in the world. Do you think that they have any interest in finding ways to fight or prevent any disease without the use of drugs?
This list may sound cynical, but when we turn to these organizations for advice and recommendations that our lives depend on, we need to be sure that our health is their main objective…not padding the pockets of those who fund their research. I didn’t go far to compile this list. The list of corporate sponsors is on each organization’s website.
Do your research and find the information that suits you the best.
Think for yourself. Question authority.
