This is a follow-up to my earlier post about Komen, its cosmetics-company sponsors, and lack of emphasis on research into environmental factors of breast cancer, including … well, chemicals.
I’m offering this Komen-created list of corporate sponsors for your information. Peruse and use as you wish.
Presumably, the list is a subset, selected names only. Interestingly, almost none of the earlier-mentioned beauty product companies are on it — no Estée Lauder, no Revlon. There are beauty companies listed — Redken, Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc., etc. But the big names are not listed. I’m not sure what that means, but it’s interesting.
We do know that Komen for the Cure cares 24% about actual research (so long as it doesn’t look too hard at environmental factors), and they care twice as much, almost 50% about “education” (whatever that is) in their mission to do something about breast cancer.
