“Movember” is a very popular event that takes place annually. The combination of the Australian term for moustache, “Mo” with the month of November, is why the event is called Movember or No-Shave November. The basis for this event is to raise awareness about men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer. Participants are encouraged to grow out their moustache and beards during the entire month.
Please don’t get me wrong, I think it is great that people are coming together for a common cause to try and accomplish a goal. People genuinely believe that they are making a difference in participating in events such as these and are being proactive towards some really serious men’s health diseases. I actually commend people who put in the effort to try and make a difference in the world, whole-heartedly, but…
Here’s Why I Believe “Movember” Is A Scam
For one thing, simply growing out a moustache does practically nothing to actually assist with finding a cure for disease, let’s get real here. On the official Movember website, the description of the point to all of this is actually quite vague…
“The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $677 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.”
So technically they are encouraging you to donate money to the Movember foundation, which they are then supposed to pass along to cancer research facilities. In theory, this sounds like a great idea, but there’s some really important questions to ask is, how much of that money is actually going to said charities? How much of that money going to the charity is actually funding cancer research projects? How much of the money is still being put towards treatments like chemotherapy and radiation which aren highly ineffective, and finally how much of that money is being put towards prevention, which is where our problem lies?
Like It Or Not, Cancer Charities Are An Industry
Cancer charities rake in billions of dollars every year, they get much of the money from unsuspecting good Samaritans who want to help in any way they can. People take pride in showcasing their cancer ribbons stuck to the back of their cars or rocking their grown out moustaches. Many of these people have likely lost one or more loved ones to this extremely widespread disease and desperately want to help to “find a cure.”

You can see cancer ribbons on everything -from gardening gloves, to umbrellas and even including things that are likely a cause by being carcinogenic in the first place, such as buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken and anti-perspirants… seems like a bit of a double standard, doesn’t it? I highly recommend a documentary called Pink Ribbons Inc. It goes into this matter in much more detail, and is available on Netflix. Watch the trailer below!
This is mainly because most cancer charities and research facilities pay little to no attention to cancer PREVENTION, and despite the huge increase in money being donated to charities, cancer rates are only increasing, and fast. It is a lot more difficult to cure cancer than it is to prevent it in the first place, if you are well educated on how to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Perhaps, these charities should spend more of their money on education programs and on getting carcinogenic materials removed from our food supply and out of the products we are using every single day.
How Do Elite Experts Feel About Cancer Charities?
Quite a few well respected scientists and scholars have stepped forward and openly spoken about how cancer research funds are largely fraudulent. Here are some examples,
Linus Pauling, Ph.D and two time Nobel Prize winner in chemistry revealed: “Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud, and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.”
Dr. Pauling has been considered one of the mort important scientists in history. He was one of the founders of quantum chemistry and molecular biology and was also a known activist for peace.
Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world), had this to say: “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.”
And one more example…
“The field of U.S. cancer care is organized around a medical monopoly that ensures a continuous flow of money to the pharmaceutical companies, medical technology firms, research institutes, and government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and quasi-public organizations such as the American Cancer Society (ACS).” – Ralph Moss, Ph.D., quoted by John Diamond, M.D., & Lee Cowden, M.D. in Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide to Cancer
Taking A Look At Alternative Cancer Treatments
There’s a tough reality to face here: if people weren’t getting sick, many doctors, researchers, charity CEO’s and big corporations would not be getting paid or making money. The only two methods currently accepted by the medical industry to treat cancer are chemotherapy and radiation, which rarely work and actually do a lot more harm than good. For example a study that was published in August 2003 revealed that of adult cancer in the USA and Australia, the use of chemotherapy, when looking at adjuvant and curative use, provided a cure only 2.1% of the time in the USA and 2.3% of the time in Australia.
There are so many alternative cancer treatments that have been shown time and time again to treat and kill cancer cells and cancerous tumors. Some in-vivo and some in-vitro. The next step for many would certainly be fair and balanced clinical trial but the problem is these alternatives have a very hard time raising funds to conduct proper research and are often dubbed as “pseudo-science” because of this, leaving many people to self treat.
How Donating To Cancer Charities Is Perpetuating The Problem
Throwing money at something is not going to make it go away. When you donate to the popular cancer charities you are telling them that it is okay to continue doing what they are doing and to keep up with the unethical work. If they keep getting funds, why would they change their methods? It benefits everyone but the unsuspecting public and the growing list of cancer victims. The heads of the most popular charities are making millions of dollars off of your generous heart. Surely we could be using that money more wisely…
Don’t Worry, You Can Still Help
First and foremost, get educated! Look into this information for yourself, research various cancer charities and see where the money is being spent. Have a look at alternative cancer treatments that have already worked and get in the know! Spread the word about fraudulent charities and encourage people to use their money elsewhere. There are alternative cancer treatments that can be supported, check out thecanceralternative.org. Also, take matters into your own hands and check out cureyourowncancer.com. Take the information you learn to a health care professional and see if it can help in your treatment, remember, not all doctors are open to other therapies, but you can locate ones who are. Seeking medical attention is still important so you can understand all of your options and the severity of an illness. This should not be taken lightly but it’s also important to look at your complete range of options.
Learn what you can about cancer prevention and inspire people to do the same. If we can stop cancer before it starts we wouldn’t need to find a cure in the first place, which makes much more sense to me. Spread the word about fraudulent charities and encourage people to use their money elsewhere.
We have the power to create the type of world we want to live in.
