The $124 Billion Cancer Industry

by Vins

There is a lot of hype in the mass media about wanting to find a cure for cancer. But how sincere is this commitment when large organizations profit from the absence of a cure? Industries including pharmaceutical corporations, healthcare, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) all make money from people being sick. There might never be a cure brought to the market because there just is not enough profit in getting rid of the disease completely, Daisy Luther reports for The Daily Sheeple. An immense deal of research is concealed and numerous possible cures are ignored and discredited because there is more money to be made in treating illness than by curing it.

How did Americans go from having a three percent chance of battling cancer to a 41% chance? According to Luther, “It’s the advent of Big Pharma, Big Agri and Big Business. They are getting rich off of poisoning Americans through the manufacture of toxic elements that we are exposed to on a daily basis.”
