Making a Killing with Cancer: A 124.6 Billion Dollar Industry

blood money

If you had a business selling something that made you well over a hundred billion dollars per year, would you take steps to eradicate the need for your business? Or would you make every effort for that money continue rolling in?

Take cancer, for example.  Don’t let all the media hype about “The Cure” fool you.  No one who is in a position to do so wants to end cancer because they are all making a killing on the big business of treatment, while ordinary people go broke, suffer horribly, and die.

There will never be a “cure” brought to market because there just isn’t enough profit in eradicating the disease entirely.  There will never be a governing body that protects consumers from being subjected to known carcinogens, because that too, will stop the cash from rolling in. A great deal of research is covered up and many potential cures are ignored and discredited because there is far more money in perpetuating illness than in curing it. In 2012, the reported spending on cancer treatment was 124.6 billion dollars.  Blood money.

The Grim Statistics

Just the word “cancer” sends a frisson of fear down the spine of the most stalwart optimist.  Terrifyingly, almost one in two people will get the dreaded disease, and the numbers are only getting worse.  Here are some quick stats for background:

  • Nearly half of all Americans will develop cancer in their lifetime. (source) Quick math tells us that is an astonishing 157 million victims.
  • Over half a million people in America died of cancer in 2012. (source)
  • In 2011, cancer was the #1 cause of death in the Western world, and #2 in developing countries. (source)
  • Cancer is the #1 cause of childhood death in the United States. (source)

This is a fairly recent increase.  A hundred years ago, the number was far different.  At that time, 1 in 33 people was stricken with the disease. And despite billions of dollars being spent to find “the cure”, the World Health Organization predicts that deaths from cancer will DOUBLE by the year 2030.

It’s being normalized.  The news is full of photos of babies who are missing an eye, of beautiful bald children who have lost their hair to chemo, and of people who have had to have body parts removed in order to survive a few more years.  But cancer is NOT normal. It isn’t something that “just happens”.  Researchers know the things that cause cancer.  Government protection agencies do too, but they do nothing to limit these toxins in the marketplace.

Why?

Because, cancer is big business and those who are profiting have great financial interest in seeing the deadly trend continue to increase.

Poisoned for Profit

So what has changed?  How did we go from a  3% chance of contracting cancer to a 41% chance?

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.

Unless you live in a bubble and have no contact with manufactured items, outside air, or the sun, you are exposed to a staggering number of known and suspected carcinogens every day. (Check out THIS LIST to see the known and suspected carcinogens that are readily available in the United States.)

The statistics support that the cumulative build up of all these different toxins in the human body eventually results in cancer in many people.

First, the manufacturers and the “food” producers profit when we buy their poisoned goods.

Then the medical system and pharmaceutical companies profit when we become ill and must fight cancer.

The drugs alone can cost over $100,000 per year, and that is on top of exorbitant costs for radiation, chemotherapy, and physician’s bills. In the United States, cancer is the #1 most expensive “per person” illness to treat. (source)

Why would those who profit want to prevent cancer when 95.5 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR is spent on treating it? There is a vested interest in this increase in illness and the people benefitting from it have no intention of reducing the cases of cancer.

Don’t Count on Obamacare

Don’t look to Obamacare to be the saving grace of cancer victims, either.  With this type of government controlled medicine, budgets will be strictly adhered to and the decisions on how to proceed and what will be paid for will NOT be in the hands of the ill person. Treatments, medications, and funds will be strictly allocated through what many people are referring to as “death panels.”

Furthermore, Obamacare only covers 60% of your medical costs in most cases (after a hefty deductible) and none of your medication is covered.  If you don’t have $50,000 or more kicking around for your co-pay, you will be out of luck, despite diligently paying your worthless monthly premiums.

Prevention: Your Only Defense

Avoiding carcinogens as diligently as possible is your best defense against becoming the “1 in 3″, but it isn’t easy. Furthermore, you’ll be considered an “extremist” or a “kook” by those around you who have buried their heads in the sand.

Basically, a spending day in the Western world is a like spending a day running a gauntlet of toxins and carcinogens. Big Pharma, Big Agri and Big Business are getting rich off of poisoning Americans.

There are steps you can take to limit your exposure but be prepared for many people to consider your actions extreme. Very few people are committed enough to their health and the health of their family to do the research required to identify the dangers around them and then go against the current to avoid those perils. (source)

Since most of us don’t live in a bubble, we will be subjected to some of these toxins – they’re impossible to avoid entirely.  However, you can limit your exposure by taking the following steps to reduce your exposure to everyday poisons.  (This list is expanded from the article, “The Great American Cancer Cluster” with permission from The Daily Sheeple.)

  • Purchase organic foods as often as possible.  GMOs and pesticides are proven carcinogens.
  • Load your plate with colorful antioxidants.  Opt for organic versions of foods like berries, colorful veggies, dark chocolate, and coffee, to name a few, are loaded with powerful, cancer-fighting antioxidants and will boost your immune system against other types of illness and disease as well.
  • Avoid processed foods. Many of the additives and preservatives featured abundantly in North America are banned in other countries precisely because of the health risks they represent.
  • Select non-toxic cookware. Nonstick cookware contains Teflon and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which emit at least toxic gases within 5 minutes of heating up that nonstick pan.  Once the pans become scratched, toxic particles are leached directly into the food you’re preparing. Aluminum cookware is also potentially toxic. Cast iron, ceramic, glass, and clay are all better cookware options.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Consume alcohol only in moderation.
  • Limit the use of plastic in your home. BPA or Bisphenol-A are petrochemical plastics that are a major component of many water bottles, lines the inside of canned goods, and makes up the hard material of many reusable food containers, including some brands of baby bottles. They leach cancer causing endocrine disruptors into food, especially if the food is hot. Use glass containers whenever possible.
  • Select personal care products that do not contain petrochemicals. Many cosmetics and other health and beauty aids contain petrochemicals. The danger of this is their byproduct, 1,4-dioxane, a proven carcinogen.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies dioxane as a probable human carcinogen California state law has classified dioxane to cause cancer. Animal studies in rats suggest that the greatest health risk is associated with inhalation of vapors. Avoid the following ingredients:
    • Paraffin Wax
    • Mineral Oil
    • toluene
    • Benzene
    • Phenoxyethanol
    • Anything with PEG (polyethylene glycol)
    • Anything ending in ‘eth’ indicates that it required ethylene oxide (a petrochemical) to produce e.g. myreth, oleth, laureth, ceteareth
    • Anything with DEA (diethanolamine) or MEA (ethanolamine)
    • Butanol and any word with ‘butyl’ – butyl alcohol, butylparaben,butylene glycol
    • Ethanol and word with ‘ethyl’ ethyl alcohol, ethylene glycol, ethylene dichloride, EDTA (ethylene-diamine-tetracetatic acid), ethylhexylglycerin
    • Any word with “propyl” – isopropyl alcohol, propylene glycol, propylalcohol, cocamidopropyl betaine
    • Methanol and any word with ‘methyl’ -  methyl alcohol, methylparaben,methylcellulose
    • Parfum or fragrance – 95% of chemicals used in fragrance are from petroleum

    Source

  • Opt for natural, biodegradable food grade cleaning products. According to the website Natural Pure Organics, the average household contains up to 25 gallons of toxic materials, most of which are in cleaning products.  When you use these cleaners, they linger in the air and on the surfaces, increasing your exposure to carcinogens as you inhale the toxins into your lungs or absorb them through your skin.
  • Avoid artificial sweetenersAspartame, for example, is a known carcinogen that breaks down into formaldehyde in the human body.
  • Refuse vaccines. Many vaccines contain formaldehyde and mercury, both of which are known carcinogens.  By the age of two, if a child has received all of the recommended vaccines, he or she has received 2,370 times the “allowable safe limit” for mercury (if there is such a thing as a safe level of poison). The HPV vaccine can actually increase the risk of reproductive cancer. The polio vaccine most recently came under fire for its cancer-causing ingredients. (Learn more about the cancer causing ingredients in vaccines HERE.)
  • Avoid tap water.  If you have municipal water, drink it at the risk of ingesting loads of toxins. First, there is the willful addition of sodium fluoride, a pesticide which is labeled as “deadly to humans.” Not only has the consumption of fluoride been linked to cancer, but it also lowers IQs, causes infertility, and causes hardening of the arteries. Then there is the addition of chlorine, which is used to kill bacteria that could make us sick. Unfortunately, according to Dr. Michael J. Plewa, a genetic toxicology expert at the University of Illinois, chlorinated water is carcinogenic. “Individuals who consume chlorinated drinking water have an elevated risk of cancer of the bladder, stomach, pancreas, kidney and rectum as well as Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.”
  • Maintain a healthy body weight. Obesity has been linked to increased risks of cancers of the esophagus, breast, endometrium, uterus, colon and rectum, kidney, pancreas, thyroid,  and gallbladder.
  • Exercise daily.

The mindboggling thing is that those who strictly avoiding carcinogens and toxins are labeled “crazy” or “hysterical”.  I can’t tell you how many times I have watched people roll their eyes or scoff when I refuse to partake in things that are hazardous.  Somehow, drinking water from my own BPA-free water bottle is considered to be “extreme”. Not taking my children to McDonald’s or feeding them hot-dogs and Doritos is “mean”. Making our body care products and cleaning products from wholesome, non-toxic ingredients is “silly”.

I believe that knowingly ingesting toxic ingredients is “crazy”.   I believe that rubbing carcinogens on my body or spraying them around my house is “ridiculous”.  I think that having poison injected into my defenseless children or feeding it to them on a colorful plate is “mean”.

Never forget that the bottom line is profit.  Don’t expect the FDA or the EPA to step in. They’ve proven time and again that their purpose is to serve the interests of Big Business, not the consumers.

Cancer represents big money to the pharmaceutical companies and the health industry. They do NOT have a vested interest in prevention.  So, maybe, just maybe, subjecting your body to the tender mercies of  Big Pharma and the AMA and lining their already loaded pockets is just a little bit sillier than taking steps to avoid illness altogether.

This article is dedicated to some beloved people in my life, one of whom fought it and won and the other who is fighting the good fight and will not go quietly… much love to SD and JS, and all who are touched by this icy finger.

40 Comments  to  Making a Killing with Cancer: A 124.6 Billion Dollar Industry

  1. Paul says:

    I have always wondered if the same people/groups/corps are equally invested in food producers as they are in pharma, thus completing the circle.

    Ever notice how all the major NWO personalities seem to die in their mid to late 90s? You hardly ever hear of ex-world leaders dying in their 60s of cancer. Must know the secret to long life…or something.

    • Egoigwe says:

      Exactly! Looking at the flip, notice how almost all non-conformist South American Presidents are fighting cancer all about. I do think cancer has become a bio-weapon used for targeted assassinations and population reduction goals. Cancer is not an infestation as much as a carefully cultivated killer bio-weapon and its application manifests through almost everything we touch and breathe. It’s not just in our food, sofa and sleeping pillows, it’s in the very air that we breathe

  2. Catherine J Frompovich says:

    GREAT article, Daisy. Maybe your readers would like to know about my 2012 book regarding cancer issues: A Cancer Answer, Holistic BREAST Cancer Management and my Oct 2013 book, Vaccination Voodoo, What YOU Don’t Know About Vaccines. Both are available on Amazon.com.
    However, my 2009 book, Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA, A Probe Into What’s Probably Making Us Sick, also available on Amazon.com, emphasizes in detail what you write about in this article. Thanks for all you do to raise consciousness levels about health and how to preserve it.

  3. Marsha says:

    We were injected with SV40 in about 1955 and 30 years later cancer rates for soft tissue cancers had exploded. Breast, lung, prostate and skin cancers increased enormously. And nobody has told us what SV 1 thru 39 are doing to us. Monkey virus experiments to stop 33,000 cases of polio a year have killed many millions.

  4. robert says:

    The cure for cancer has been well known for a thousand years by indigenous people around the world. Just google Graviola Tree, Bloodroot and Chapparal … check out alt-cancer.org

    I used Bloodroot to cure my squamous cell oral cancer. Hurt like hell but it worked better than my four cancer surgeries with the “best” local surgeon I could find.

  5. SG says:

    Great article Daisy! Thanks for sharing this information.

  6. Lance the Permie says:

    I agree with the entirety of the article except…the no smoking part. Giggle if you must, but before you do, please read this (I was in a back and forth email exchange with the authour before is untimely death) before giggling too hard. I forget who stated this and I’m paraphrasing but…
    “The collectivist blames the individual, the free thinker/libertarian blames the system.”

    http://www.sott.net/article/226999-Smoking-Helps-Protect-Against-Lung-Cancer

    Interesting data confirmed by the WHO before the ‘great memory hole’ of y2k wiped out a lot of functional data formerly online.

  7. Erica K says:

    Great article!
    My family is always hating on me, or making fun of me for eating organic, not drinking tap water and avoiding chemicals as much as possible!
    They think I’m just some crazy hippy and don’t listen when I try to to explain myself!

  8. Strayhorse says:

    The “Cancer Industry” killed my mother at the age of 47 after suffering 7 YEARS from masectomies,chemotherapy and radiation therapy. All of these “treatments” slowly killed her and drained the family’s savings. The Cancer Industry had the cure and prevention for cancer 30 years ago – but there is no profit in saving lives; there is no dividend to be enjoyed by stockholders. May God have mercy on their souls. I do contribute TO THESE GOULS – ever!

  9. anon says:

    WHAT?…

    No ethanol or ethyl alcohol?

    You do realize that is just grain alcohol…vodka, whiskey, etc. etc.

  10. GoneWithTheWind says:

    The cancer rates are pretty much the same as they were 100 years ago. Cancer is mostly a disease of old age and 100 years ago few people lived into old age. The rate hasn’t increased but rather then number of people who have reached old age and are 10 times more likely to get cancer has increased. Additionally 100 years ago if you died and the doctor didn’t know what you died from they put down natural causes or whatever they could think of that was close. Back then a lot of people died from consumption but very few do today.

    As for the medicine or food causing cancer or any illness this would be so easy to prove if it were true. You would have dramatic increases in a specific disease and the increases would be limited to those who consumed that product or medicine. We don’t have that. Our food today is the safest in the world. You can choose to dislike prepared foods or any additive you fear but that doesn’t change reality.

    • Egoigwe says:

      My very first thought was on which planet do you live? “Cancer is mostly a disease of old age?” Where on earth did you dig that one up from? And “Our food today is the safest in the world.” Oh boy! Are you in serious trouble if you believe half the crap you posted. You couldn’t have done any better as a Big Pharma shill!

    • Donna says:

      You are reading faulty government statistics that would like you to believe that we are living longer and that is the reason for cancer, etc. So not true. People lived just as long or longer. The reason for the lower “average” age of death was due to high infant mortality and higher infectious diseases that claimed many children. Not only did people long, they lived without cancer, diabetes, and ADHD. My ancestors all lived on average over 100 years old going back at least 200 years. However, the last generation (my parents and their siblings) have mostly died in their 80s. Something is seriously wrong to reduce 15-20 years off life expectancy in one generation.

      “Your would have increases in a specific disease and increases would be limited to those who consumed that product or medicine.”

      What a ridiculous statement. We have better sanitation but our food is not safer. All processed food has GMOs, chemicals, preservative, pesticide and herbicide residues, and dyes. In addition, we have vaccines laced with chemicals, prescription drugs with horrible side effects, water with chlorine and fluoride, and polluted skies. Chronic diseases are common such as autism, Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, ADHD, and many, many others that were rare 100-125 years ago. 125 years ago, our environment and food was much cleaner. These ARE dramatic increases. So keep on eating your prepared food, getting vaccinated, taking drugs, and reading government statistics. If you haven’t already, you will have one and likely many of these chronic diseases compliments of large food manufacturers, big Pharma, and the government. :(

      • Donna says:

        Just correcting my link.

      • GoneWithTheWind says:

        Indeed years ago most people died in childhood from diseases that we now prevent with vaccines. But you miss the point entirely. It is exactly because most people died young that there were not a lot of old people developing cancer. Old age (80+) was rare 100 years ago. Today it is common.
        One of the most imprtant factors in our longer lifespan is chlorine (one of the things that makes you scary cat). The diabetes rate has not changed. We are better able to diagnose diabetes today but the numbers are the same. As far as GMO’s (another scary cat fear) if there was any actual “proof” that GMO’s caused health problems then they would be banned. Autism is no more common then it was years ago. The problem is we pay schools and doctors to diagnose autism so they diagnose it more. Years ago you were considered “slow” if you did poorly in school, today you have autism. Ironically you will live a long life and have many years to spread your misinformatin about modern life and health scares. Watch out! There’s another airplane with a contrail…

        • jim says:

          GoneWithTheWind: The following link contains links to many articles detailing the dangers of GMOs: http://www.infowars.com/irrefutable-evidence-that-gmo-can-harm-you/
          There was also that French study with rats fed Monsanto poison that was recently redacted by the publishers new editor who previously worked at Monsanto: http://www.theorganicprepper.ca/gmo-rat-study-retracted-by-new-journal-editor-from-surprise-monsanto-11302013

          • GoneWithTheWind says:

            Oh please! Info wars! Really! Those aren’t real studies those are scary stories created just to scare people like you. There is zero evidence of GMO harming any humans or animals. All you are doing by searching for this kind of quackery is reinforcing your biases. Don’t live in an echo chamber. Science, real science, can save you; the truth will set you free. Stop looking at info wars and in fact you can safely assume that anything reported by info wars is the opposite of truth. Ditto for Mercola.

        • Kazina says:

          you have clearly not done much legitimate research Gone. there’s overwhelming proof about gmos being bad and linkage of all these other artificial implements being toxic. it’s really common sense when it comes down to it. are you actually that foolish or are you workin for the man?

        • thePatriot says:

          yeah GMOs are perfectly safe (say the whores at the FDA) that’s why they’re banning them in other countries all over the world… and if you think the FDA is trustworthy and the idea that they’re not is the stuff of crazy conspiracy theorists? even the educational whores at prestigious universities (like harvard? is that a good enough source for your obviously scrutinizing intellect?) are finally using their brains to come to the same conclusion (FDA = Federal Death Administration): http://www.naturalnews.com/043265_FDA_Big_Pharma_Harvard_University.html

    • thePatriot says:

      you’re either a troll or an idiot. the stats are readily available online for anyone to see and the fact is that cancer has been on the rise for the last 100 years and increasing exponentially the last few decades; 30 percent in 1980, 40 percent in 2000 and 50 percent in the year 2010, and at the present rate of increase (of both the rates themselves and the rate at which our land, food, air an water are being poisoned) the figure will reach 100 percent in the not too-distant future… you can either accept the facts and do everything you can to keep yourself healthy (take responsibility for your own health and not allow it to be someones cash cow) or you can remain ignorant and closed minded and suffer the consequences… (collect your darwin award)

  11. RothbardianamericanHelot says:

    I read somewhere that sugar feeds cancer cells.
    I imagine corn sweeteners do just the same.

    That Benzene is a nasty substance. I only recently learned it’s a component of ‘new car smell’.

    And now, paraffin wax is bad? This is the first I’ve heard of that.
    I wonder how many preppers have that stuff stored up for its many uses?

    Did you throw all yours away?

    • GoneWithTheWind says:

      Sugar feeds everything in your body. You live because you have glucose in your veins. If you cut out all sugar your body turns everything ele you eat into sugar (glucose). You can’t “starve” a cancer by nt eating sugar (or that dreaded scary corn syrup).

      • SugarTheBitterTruth says:

        Watch “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM

        • GoneWithTheWind says:

          Do the doctors not know that glucose fuels your body? I would be very afraid of a doctor who signed on to this BS. Probably they have signed on to the superstitions rather then the science. I looked at their site http://www.osher.ucsf.edu/about-us/ and they actually believe in Ayurvedic “medicine”. What next? Throwing virgins into volcanoes to scare the bad things out of our bodies.

      • RothbardianamericanHelot says:

        You are just boatloads of self-crowned Mr. Know-it-all, aren’t you, GoneWithTheWind?

        First you say this whopper of a ridiculous joke: “if there was any actual “proof” that GMO’s caused health problems then they would be banned.”

        Ha! Yeah, right.

        … And now you say your body can do things like turn salt into sugar?

        Too funny. And sad. Because corn syrup is indeed spooky stuff. Consider this:

        “Pancreatic tumor cells use fructose to divide and proliferate, according to a study that challenges the notion that all sugars are the same. [...]

        ”Importantly, fructose and glucose metabolism are quite different… These findings show that cancer cells can readily metabolize fructose to increase proliferation.”

        In this case, the cancer cells used were pancreatic cancer, which is typically regarded as the most deadly and universally rapid-killing form of cancer.

        The study confirms the old adage that sugar feeds cancer because they found that tumor cells do thrive on sugar (glucose). However, the cells used fructose for cell division, speeding up the growth and spread of the cancer.

        If this difference isn’t of major consequence, then I don’t know what is.

        Whether you’re simply interested in preventing cancer, or have cancer and want to live longer, you ignore these facts and listen to industry propaganda at your own risk.” …

        http://www.lewrockwell.com/2010/08/joseph-mercola/cancers-favorite-food/

        • GoneWithTheWind says:

          You would have to be crazy to think your body turns salt into sugar. Perhaps you were gone that day in school.

          You miss the point. Of course sugar feeds cancer. But sugar feeds every body function so you cannot make your body differentiate between them. 100% of the carbohydrates you eat are turned into glucose. IF your body does not get enough glucose from the carbs you eat it can and wil turn fat and protein into sugar as well. You cannot prevent it. Switching to a sugar free diet will not work because your body turn food into sugar even if you don’t eat sugar. There! Was that simple enough so you coud understand it. And I didn’t even have to mention salt to explain it to you.

  12. Didi says:

    Spiritual awakening will help you understand this crazy world we live in!

  13. Peter Capper says:

    these people are also prepared to see their own families die of these diseases…they are truly evil evil people and l hope the world now realize that “the love” of money IS the root of all evil!!! We must end their tenure as corporations and jail those guilty…BUT you will need a revolution coz they own everything and those that are asheep and question logic, truth and evidence… will you please wake the F@CK UP!!! or go be FEMAered please!

  14. jo says:

    hi not happy about the ad of investment to hydraulic fracturing appearing in your page

  15. Short, sweet and to the point, :-) Well written article and I absolutely agree with everything you said. Except for maybe not exercising every day, I am on board with every other thing I can do to stay healthy, and it has worked wonders so far. You may want to research some into plant based diets and cancer prevention.

  16. I couldn’t agree more with this article. It’s sad that millions of cancer victims are duped into thinking that pumping toxic chemicals into their bodies is supposed to kill cancer, when they could treat it naturally either changing their diets (I know 2 people who beat cancer simply by cutting out processed foods and eating organic), doing a cleanse and staying away from big pharma products. I have heard great things about the parasite cleanse found in Hulda Clark’s book, “The cure for all cancers.” http://www.drclark.ch/en/cleanses_clean-ups/parasite_cleanses/parasite_chart.php

  17. Edwin Calais says:

    If you check into it, many of those who sit on the boards of NGO’s mandated with finding a cure for cancer, like Cancer Societies & Associations, also sit on the boards of big Pharma companies like Merck or Pfizer. So… the very people in charge of non-profits seeking to find a cure, are also the same people that would lose many millions of dollars personally, should a cure for cancer be found in something simple and non-profitable, like dandelions. Gee… how’s that for incentive? If you actually do find a cure, you will be penalized by having your ginormous net worth cut in half. Conflict of interest much?

  18. David says:

    When my brother became a doctor in 1977 breast cancer was 100% fatal. Now 90% will survive. How does that statistic ride with your conspiracy theory?

    • Pam says:

      “Hearsay”! My great aunt had breast cancer twice in the 60′s /70′s, she refused to be in the 5FU chemotherapy study and lived to almost a hundred! I worked in Oncology in the late 70′s and early 80′s, and all the hundreds of medical records I read 90% of cancer patients died from the treatment not the cancer!

    • Pam says:

      Further more, probably 50% of breast cancer diagnosed is what they call “pre cancerous” ? I do not know what the hell that’s suppose to mean, but it is easy to say you were cured from something you never really had in the first place. Ladies stay away from radiating (mammograms) your breasts! Unless of course you want a breast reduction.

    • Jon says:

      More people get cancer now. More people get treated. Survival may be better but contraction rates are many times worse. The result is more people need treatment, even if a smaller percentage die from it. Those who live have the cash to pay to live. Your money or your life. Welcome to America.

  19. Pam says:

    As, well as a clean diet (or as best as you are able), people will surely benefit from “unless you can put it in your mouth, do not put it on your skin”. Baking soda is great for brushing teeth and using as deodorant, coconut oil for moisturizing your skin, as sunscreen, and to detangle and condition your hair, etc. The plus side of finding eatables for grooming, is that it is soo economical and is already in your pantry.

    • Daisy Luther says:

      Agreed! Thanks for this comment – you’ve inspired me to write about this and offer some alternatives to the drug-store brands. :)
