Activist Post: The Dark Side of Breast Cancer (Un)Awareness Month

 The history of Breast Cancer Awareness Month's surprising origins is a matter of the public record:
NBCAM was founded in 1985 as a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of Imperial Chemical Industries (now part of AstraZeneca, maker of several anti-breast cancer drugs). The aim of the NBCAM from the start has been to promote mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer. ~ Wikipedia
