A large company in my area that takes care of my HOA has their guys wearing pinks shirts too, instead of the safety yellow they usually wear. I might get some printed up.

I usually talk health issues with my clients. Guess what country has the lowest incidence of breast cancer...?

The answer is Japan...at least prior to the Fukushima incident.

Breast tissue is dependant on iodine for optimal function. Most people male and female are iodine defcient in Western countries. Vit D is also critical and huge anti cancer. Sunscreen use blocks you bodies natural ability to produce Vit D. Vit C is also anticancer. Mammograms are a questionable procedure and some say it increases the cancer risk.

Mainstream medical establishment is largely about cut, burn and poison. Not much $ to be made in health awareness and prevention.

My mom died of cancer when I was 19 so don't even get uppity with me.

Nothing.

It's become nothing more than a marketing tactic and I find it tacky.

I agree.

I didn't know wearing pink shirts and having pink lawn signs was an effective way to cure cancer? Heck, I'll let a client of mine that has cancer all she has to do is wear something pink.

It's become as redundant as the idiots that have "support our troops" bumper stickers...........but the only thing they have done to support the troops is buy a bumper sticker for a dollar. I won't even discuss the hypocrisy within Susan B Komen....that's a whole other topic.

Woop dee fricken doo.

Every thread has someone with their negativity posting. Because doing nothing is better then wearing pink.

Yes it is a marketing thing. Marketing pink gets people thinking about breast cancer right?

Thanks for the reminder on the soy issue just below the article. Consumption of unfermented Soy should be avoided by everybody. Did you noticed the article mentioned zero distinction between fermented and unfermented Soy. I would not expect "Today" to suddenly become anything other than mainstream.

If you are an adult male and you want to develop man boobs...then soy is for you. Soy infant formula...? Worst formula ever.

I cringe every time I see folks buy Soy milk or order a soy latte...

Almond milk is a vastly better substitute for dairy.
