Does your insurance cover the latest cancer drug that costs $159 to make, but sells for $106,000? The cost of cancer drugs has skyrocketed lately by more than 5000%, and this is not the exception, but the rule. Despite this gob-smacking display of greed, we continue to finance not only the pharmaceutical industry, but ‘charitable organizations’ that are nothing more than wolves in sheep’s clothing. 
The American Cancer Society (ACS) which has a cure rate of about 2.1%, receives more money in contributions every 10 minutes than the Independent Cancer Research Foundation (ICRF) receives in a whole year. ICRF arguably has cure rates closer to 90%.
Why do we continue to fund a fraud? Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., Professor Emeritus for Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the University of Illinois, School of Public Health, has a few ideas about why we give our money to thieves who are more interested in their next private jet or private island than saving lives. He’s written a 100-page paper on the disgusting habits of the ACS.
