THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND THE PESTICIDE AND CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES
(The Best Years in Life) Previously in this series we looked at the cozy relationship between the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the chemical industry, including how that industry had been the source of both board members and major donations. A stark example of the influence chemical makers wielded with the ACS came in the spring of 1993 when the ACS helped attack an upcoming documentary about pesticide dangers.
Shortly before PBS was due to broadcast the documentary on "Frontline", a draft of the script was leaked to the powerful public relations firm Porter-Novelli. Porter-Novelli had notable clients on both sides of the fence, including the ACS as well as Ciba-Geigy, DuPont, Monsanto, Burroughs Wellcome, American Petroleum Institute, the Center for Produce Quality, the USDA, the NCI, plus other National Institutes of Health.
Porter-Novelli first crafted a
rebuttal to help the manufacturers
quell public fears about
pesticide-contaminated food. Next,
Porter-Novelli called up another
client, the ACS, for whom Porter-Novelli
had done pro bono work for years.
The rebuttal that Porter-Novelli had
just sent off to its industry
clients was faxed to ACS Atlanta
headquarters. Then it was circulated
internationally by e-mail so that
the 3,000 regional ACS offices could
use it to help field calls from the
public after the show aired.
THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND THE MAMMOGRAM AND CANCER INDUSTRIES
Despite increasing studies and
reports which have warned of the
dangers and questionable benefits
from mammograms, the ACS continues
to promote mammograms and lure women
of all ages into mammography
centers. By doing so, the ACS helps
provide patients and huge profits to
manufacturers of mammogram machines
and films. Thus, the ACS continues
in virtually all of its important
actions to be strongly linked with
the mammography industry, ignores
the development of alternatives to
mammography and exposes
pre-menopausal women to radiation
hazards from mammography with little
or no evidence of benefits.
