Why You Should Watch This Film
Pink Ribbons, Inc. shows how the devastating reality of breast cancer has become clouded by a shiny, pink story of success. It's time to face the facts about "pink" product marketing and start saving lives with solid prevention programs, more research into natural therapies and access to solid information on nutrition instead.
What You'll Discover In This Film
- Who really benefits from pink-washing.
- The disconnect between research and results.
- How breast-cancer research is poorly coordinated and favors drug companies.
- How breast cancer fundraising may boost corporate profits and brand awareness more than it benefits people with the disease.
- The fact that it raises millions of dollars for the cause, yet prevention in highly underfunded and breast cancer rates keep rising.
- That many companies profiting from these campaigns may actually be contributing to the breast cancer by selling known carcinogens.
- Why so many women feel alienated by an approach which can be seen as a "tyranny of cheerfulness".
About Pink Ribbons Inc.
Pink ribbons, they're everywhere: t-shirts, hats, yogurt cups, KFC buckets, car ads, NFL stadiums...the list goes on and on. They make us feel good, as if we're all engaged in a successful battle against breast cancer.
But who is really benefiting? After all, more and more women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Maybe it's the companies who wrap their products in pink to gain our admiration and money. Then wouldn't it be something if some of the very companies that profit from their pink marketing campaigns have actually contributed to the breast cancer epidemic by selling known carcinogens?
Pink Ribbons, Inc. goes inside the story to reveal those who have co-opted what marketing experts have labeled a "dream cause."

- Dr. Susan Love, advocate/surgeon
