Healthy Living – Breast Cancer Awareness Month



This is my favorite time of year. The onset of autumn, one of the most beautiful seasons of the year and certainly breathtaking if you live in New England. Here at Green Mountain at Fox Run we’re lucky to to be blessed with some of the most beautiful scenery in Vermont, including the incredibly picturesque Okemo mountain ski resort right outside our door.

The other important thing about October, and women, is its Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Every year, we join millions of women and the Susan G. Koman Foundation in supporting the search for a cure.

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In1982 that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement.

“Today, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure(R), they have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill the promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.”

    Komen is tied to the abortion industry big time. They use bait and switch tactics. You give them your money -they turn around and give it to Planned Parenthood and their subsidiaries, which can be as innocent sounding as the Gemini Office Development LLC (G.O.D.)

    This will eventually end up in a scandal that will make the tobacco companies years of denial over any link between smoking and lung cancer look for a Strawberry Shortcake cartoon.

    Abortion is a major risk factor for breast cancer. Ever stop to wonder why the huge increase in the rate of breast cancers these days. Things have finally come full circle. Two things: Number one: oral contraceptives. They’re Class III carcinogens but since over 80% of American women take them, few doctors are brave enough to say, “oh, by the way, the pills you’ve taken for years, they’ll increase your risk of cancers twentyfold” and Number two: “if you’ve had an abortion before a full-term pregnancy, that ups your chances of geting breast cancer by leaps and bounds.”

    Since over 48% of all abortions are repeat abortions, that doubles your chances of getting breast cancer by this one risk factor alone. This is the number one reason why everyone and her sister has breast cancer these days.

    You don’t have 48 million dead babies from surgical abortions and 600 million chemical abortions since 1973 without severe consequences to women’s health.

    I hope Komen and Planned Parenthood have a huge stash of cash stored away for the multi-million dollar payouts in lawsuits that are sure to hit them in the future. The Race for the Coverup will one day be exposed for exactly what it is.
