KFC Partners with Komen to Fight Cancer

An ironic and very contradictory partnership has been announced: The largest grassroots breast cancer advocacy group in the world, the "Susan G. Komen for the Cure" group, has now partnered with the fast food chain KFC in a national "Buckets for the Cure" campaign. Never mind that the National Cancer Institute's website states that studies "have shown that an increased risk of developing colorectal, pancreatic, and breast cancer is associated with high intakes of well-done, fried or barbecued meats". This whole mind-boggling partnership is well put in the words of John Robbins who says: Pardon me for being cynical, but I have to ask, if Komen is going to partner with KFC, why not take it a step further and partner with a cigarette company? They could sell pink packages of cigarettes, donating a few cents from each pack while claiming "each pack you smoke brings us closer to the day cancer is vanquished forever.""

It seems greed has no limits as exemplified in the partnership between Komen and KFC. The only thing gained by this partnership is money (benefiting both groups) while bringing misery and misinformation to people who instead of supporting caner cure they’ll be supporting disease and animal suffering.
