Susan G. Komen fracks for cancer cure. If they’re drilling for the cause, they’re getting warmer

PINKWASHING has sunk to new depths with mercenary NGO Susan G. Komen of "Race for the Cure" endorsing pink-painted drilling bits used for oil and gas hydraulic fracturing. AS IF they don't know that toxins which abound in fracking fluids are among the causes of cancer. The pink drill bits are perhaps sloppiness on the part of the NGO, as it recently announced a last ditch blitz to find a cancer cure by 2020. Cancer is a disease like alcoholism is a disease. We know its cause. The cure is to cut it off at the source.

Race for the cure, race to the source

I'm seeing a sea of pink gloves as receivers and defensive backs vie for the long bomb; on the sidelines, pink shoes, pink caps, pink jerseys and pennants; on the players' helmets, pink ribbon decals next to the other patriotic flair. Have you seen the breast cancer awareness t-shirt which reads "Save the Ta-Tas?" When childbearing-age ta-tas are threatened, maybe American men will do more than commemorate cancer. Then we'll see pink smokestacks, pink chemical tankers, and pink mammogram machines. This industrial pink-wash is as unfunny as pinkeye.
