KFC Buckets For The Cure Pinkwashing Campaign

Mike Adams for Natural News:

Susan G. Komen for the Cure has now crossed the line into asinine idiocy thanks to its new alliance with Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), where pink buckets of fried chicken are sold under the slogan, “Buckets for the Cure.” I’m not making this up. See the ad image below:


This idea that buying fried chicken is actually going to cure cancer is one of the most utterly idiotic health ideas yet witnessed in American pop culture. Komen for the Cure is so far gone from reality that the organization apparently doesn’t even think twice about suggesting such an absurd idea. Eat more fried chicken, folks, and then what? Loading up on that kind of a diet is more likely to cause you to kick the bucket than to find a cure for cancer.

Does fried chicken actually promote cancer?

Fried chicken, you see, is coated in starches. The recipe for the KFC chicken batter is basically flour, sugar, salt, black pepper and monosodium glutamate (MSG). All by itself, this is a recipe for chronic degenerative disease because the flour and sugar are highly processed, and the MSG is an excitotoxin that Dr. Russell Blaylock links to obesity, cancer and neurological disorders. And the chicken meat itself? That’s another cruel story…

  1. Marketing FAIL. I actually received a coupon book (shudder) in the mail featuring this promotion that had “breast special”. I kid you not.

    Is it juvenile to always think of womens breasts when I see the word “breasts”, even in reference to chicken? Probably.
    I guess it was only a matter of time until this tendency to correlate would be exploited more fully. Lets face it, the word “breast” is eye catching for men for obvious reasons (we like them) and women, simply because they each own a pair. Now KFC and friends attempt to exploit our love of breasts for there own purposes.
    KFC Corp. certainly doesn't give a crap about other peoples breast cancer, they just want to sell lots of chicken.
    Who the hell knows what a health oriented charity is doing teaming up with a fast food chain that in some cases helps to cause cancer, even breast cancer.
    Its like The American Cancer Society teaming up with RJ Reynolds or Winston-Salem against lung cancer.
    …..or the KKK teaming up with the NAACP against racism…..
    Wow, a three piece extra crispy is lookin really good right now….

    Well, here in America we have one tried and true method that we use to cure everything that ails us. Food. It is actually kind of stupid that this hasn't happened sooner, considering the atmosphere and attitude in this country toward food. I watch shows online occasionally, and on the side bar there is a little chat area with a number of people from Britain and Canada. You know what, they laugh at us every time a commercial comes on, not just because of their frequency, which apparently is far more frequent here than in those countries (I guess due mostly to the fact that they have something resembling public control of the airwaves, unlike here), but also for the content. Something along the lines of 4 out of 5 commercials shown are advertisements for food. This is just absurd, and annoying.

    I was driving around the other day and I came upon a restaurant whose sign read “Mexican Comfort Food.” I am sure many of you are aware that there are plenty of people out there in the world that have trouble procuring “Regular Food,” or even clean drinking water. This is the kind of thing that is crippling this country from the inside out, and why no matter who we have at the helm of this ship called America, be it George Bush or Barack Obama, we remain the world's joke on many social issues.

    Oh, great. So if KFC is going to donate funds for breasts cancer, should Taco Bell donate proceeds for colon cancer?

  5. I seen the commercial for this the other night… I thought it was a joke…. i'm speechless.

  6. This goes on for months every year, you can't buy a bottle of water, a razor blade or a candle without a pink breast cancer ribbon on it. There are banners all over the shops and you walk out with your groceries in pink breast cancer bags. What was once a normal trip to the grocery store becomes a mass “don't forget to die of breast cancer” programming scheme.

    As a matter of fact that is all the news or commericials are about now, how sick you are, how dangerous the environment is, what I call black worms, negative suggestions that eventually become assimilated into the mass psyche. It's evil.

  7. Yeah, the cognitive dissonance on this is absolutely deafening. I was thinking WTF when I saw this on TV for the first time.
