Basically, $0.50 from every bucket of chicken sold will go to the Komen organization as they spread their "educational message." The message that's okay to eat deep-fried, abused chickens and prevent disease? How can a cancer organization even think about having their name associated with a fast food restaurant. Yes, I know charities need funding but is it worth having your name tainted and your reputation go down the drain? Apparently so. Maybe they are hoping nobody will notice or make a fuss. During a time when cancer and heart disease are at record levels, we need to drop this kind of bullsh*t and tell the truth to a society who is desperately looking for answers.
I like how Mr. Robbins took it a step further and asked why cancer organizations aren't partnering up with cigarette companies, offering cute pink packs to the public. Okay, this is sarcasm, but who knows what greed will make an organization do.
You want to know what's in that batter? Well, according to Natural News the ingredients are basically flour, sugar, salt, and MSG (monosodium glutamate). Every ingredient in that list is a highly processes product and we know that these can wreak havoc on many of our bodily systems. Now, MSG is actually an excitotoxin. What is an excitotoxin you ask? Well they are amino acids that also serve as neurotransmitters to the brain. These can cross the blood-brain barrier and "excite" the neurons of the brain to exhaustion. These neurons then die off! MSG has also been linked to obesity, cancer, and neurological disorders. Creepy stuff!
Now, you are going to take that abused chicken and cover it in cancer-laiden batter...then what?..you are going to deep fry the heck out of it? Are you crazy? KFC is! Frying starches at such high temperatures creates acrylamides which increase your risks for many types of cancer including ovarian and kidney!
All in all Robbins calls this a publicity stunt by KFC to improve their image due to all the bad publicity they have received lately with their nutritionally-dead, artery-clogging products and their horrific cruelty practices taking place in their slaughterhouses. How pathetic, in my opinion. It really pisses me off when a big company hides from the blood on their hands. Grow up and clean up your act or disappear! The Komen foundation isn't a pure angel either and some might say let them deal with the backlash of their new campagne partner. Yet, someone needs to send a better message to this dying society. For goodness sakes, we are eating ourselves to death! When is the broccoli farmer going to get some recognition for supplying one of the best cancer fighting foods out there?
There are my thoughts for today's outrageous business partnership. What are your thought?
PS It's storming outside and I kind of like it. Once and awhile I love to hunker down and stay inside. Do you love storms?
PPS I'm doing another 24 hour fast and so we shall see how it goes this time:)
