Chris Cooley, Tanya Snyder, Roger Goodell discuss breast cancer awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, something you're reminded of every time you watch an NFL game and see bright pink mixing with team colors.

Three with ties to the NFL and to the disease were on "Today" this morning talking about its impact on their lives. The mom of Redskins tight end Chris Cooley is a survivor of Stage III breast cancer and, as Cooley readily admits, is "so much tougher" than he is. Tanya Snyder, the wife of Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, is a survivor and Commissioner Roger Goodell's mother died of the disease.

"When I get to the locker room," Cooley said, "and just see pink gloves and cleats in my locker, it definitely makes me reflect on what my mom went through and I feel so fortunate."

"It changes you," said Snyder, a spokesperson for the NFL's awareness campaign. "It changed me now and always will, which is why I'm here today to hopefully make a difference."

Cancer awareness is always a great idea, but why no awareness of cancer treatments/cures that work? The American Cancer Society and Susan Komen have never brought us any advancements in cancer treatment and they are out there. They just want our money. Yes, I know, they do honor cancer survivors, but what about all the men and women that needlessly did not survive? Any treatment that does not make big profits for the drug companies and doctors never get mentioned. There are simple and very effective things out there that people can do for themselves. Eat only organic food. Chemical and GMO foods contain up to hundreds of toxic chemicals that sicken and can cause cancer. Natural vitamin D3 taken daily has been shown to reduce the chance of getting 18 different cancers by 50%. The cheapest cancer treatment out there is aluminum free baking soda taken daily. Cancer does not do well in an alkaline body which is why cancer loves sugar because sugar makes a person's body acid. Why is the Danish study on breast cancer ignored when the Danes had an 85% cure rate in their 3 year study from 8 or 9 years ago. The women with breast cancer were given 300mg a day of the Japanese form of CO enzyme Q10 and only the Q10. Not one woman died in the study. Why is this information withheld from women today? Cancer has been shown to have no defense against pancreatic enzymes. Cancer only shows up when a person's liver becomes toxic. Why no liver cleanses recommended to cancer patients? Cancer cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment. Cancer cannot survive in temperatures of 105 degrees F and higher. Cancer cannot tolerate laughter, but it can return stronger than ever after a person's immune system has been destroyed by chemotherapy. Finally, we need to prevent the FDA from keeping low cost, effective cancer cures off the market whenever they appear. As individuals we need to stop donating to the American Cancer Society and to Susan Komen to stop their (perpetual) fake war against cancer.
