Cancer Is “Racist”
Posted by Lewis Doherty on: 2007-09-25 18:12:41
The Politically Correct media states that race is just a social construct, unless one’s life depends on it and it suddenly becomes a scientific reality.
September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and as such there have been public service announcements and mentions during the medical segments of the news broadcasts.
The Prostate Cancer Education Council recommends yearly screening for men 35 and older if they fall into one of the high-risk categories, including African-Americans, who are at a higher risk than Caucasians, or men who have a family history of the disease. All men over 40 should be checked yearly.
To drive the point home, they have recruited Colon Powell.
This is another one of those stories that exposes the falsity of the “race is a social construct” line that Social Marxists promote.
Scientists consistently treat race as a biological reality. It is when they are pressed by the media servicing the general public do they make Politically Correct pronouncements. If it means keeping one’s job and steering away from the PC lynch mob, compromises have to be made.
Social Marxists don’t want to apply the science and theories applied to the rest of living things to humans because these may result in social consequences they don’t want. But if something tends to help a certain ethnic group they like, as in this case regarding African-“Americans,” then exceptions to their “race is a social construct” line can be made.
Theoretically, social systems should be based on reality. Other social systems are based on covering up reality to survive.
General Colin Powell Speaks Out for Prostate Cancer Prevention
DENVER, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- As a prostate cancer survivor, General
Colin Powell is doing his part to inform men across the United States of
the importance of prevention.
In 2003, the former Secretary of State underwent surgery for prostate
cancer and made a full recovery. Since that time, General Powell has
contributed his time to the Prostate Cancer Education Council, a non-profit
that each year sponsors Prostate Cancer Awareness Week (PCAW).
"Early detection is the best weapon we have against this silent
killer," notes General Powell.
Rates of death from prostate cancer have declined over past years, but
the disease remains the second-leading cause of cancer death in American
men. More than 218,890 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this
year, and 27,050 men likely will die from the disease. With more annual
cases of prostate cancer than of breast cancer among women, screening is
imperative to ensure the health of the men of our nation.
Yet prostate cancer is nearly 100 percent survivable when detected early. That is why PCEC coordinates free and low-cost screenings each year
across the country during PCAW, scheduled this year for Sept. 17 - 22.
PCEC recommends yearly screening for men 35 and older if they fall into one of the high-risk categories, including African-Americans, who are at a higher risk than Caucasians, or men who have a family history of the disease. All men over 40 should be checked yearly.
To remind men of the importance of yearly screening, General Powell will relate his personal story through national public service
announcements on both radio and television.
TAP Pharmaceutical Products Inc., Lake Forest, Ill., is a long-time
supporter of PCEC and has provided financial support for this year's PCAW
educational efforts. The campaign intends to help decrease the number of
men affected by prostate cancer to nearly zero in years to come.
According to PCEC founder Dr. E. David Crawford, "Every three minutes
an American male discovers he has prostate cancer. Early diagnosis is
critical to catch this disease when it is at its most curable stage."
Screenings during PCAW take about 10 minutes and include a Prostate
Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test and a Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) done by a

About the Prostate Cancer Education Council
The Prostate Cancer Education Council (PCEC) was founded in 1988 and
coordinates the national Prostate Cancer Awareness Week (PCAW) program,
Sept. 17 - 22, 2007. PCAW was created by the PCEC as a means to offer free
or low-cost prostate cancer screenings across the nation. PCEC and the PCAW
event strive to educate men and the women in their lives about the
prevalence of prostate cancer, the importance of early detection and the
available treatment options. As one of the oldest and largest organized
screening efforts in the nation, PCAW has helped millions of men receive
potentially life-saving screenings in addition to influencing additional
research dollars to be earmarked for prostate cancer.
