We’ve all seen many videos now of people pouring ice buckets over their head, it’s a 20 second video and they say something about ALS and that’s it. What is ALS? and how is pouring ice over your head helping to treat or cure this disease? I see the world a little differently than most, and question what’s popular and so called ‘normal’ because there’s usually more to the story, and in this case it’s the truth. Watch this video to find out if this ice bucket challenge is really helping ALS sufferers and where the money being raised is really going:
Remember, 27% of the money actually goes to research. 73% is who knows where. There has already been 10’s of millions of dollars poured into the current drug that the ALSA.org describes the drug Riluzole (Rilutek®) is frustrating because it’s not a perfect drug, and does not stop ALS. Yet they still recommend it? why? my guess, some sort of monetary gain to keep their ‘charity’ going and it’s better than telling 30,000 people in the US that you have nothing for them.
Let’s think more about what we put in our bodies and the way we treat disease. The answer isn’t as clear as looking in the mirror, sometimes, most times you have to do some digging.
Here’s the video about coconut oil reversing neurodegenerative diseases:
Here’s the coconut oil book on reversing [easyazon_link asin=”1591203198″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”httpyougotcom-20″ add_to_cart=”no” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure?[/easyazon_link].
Also, I don’t recommend microwaving your coconut oil, this will just harm the nutritional value of it.
Thanks for watching,
P.S. This guy below looked at their financial statements apparently and found that only 7% goes to research. Now they have two stories on their website, isn’t that interesting? Maybe they increased the amount that goes to research over time? regardless, not much of the money actually goes to research. And that research just turns into another drug that doesn’t work when we can use that money to research coconut oil and plants that have the same ketogenic affect in the body.
Thanks for your time and considering viewing this differently, I hope you do because I know I sure do.
Thank you David:)
your welcome! thank you for the support and encouragement Lisa Lent! 🙂
You are absolutely right David! People really don't think, they just jump on the bandwagon with whatever craze pops up. They just "assume" its the right thing to do since so many others are doing it. Very much like SHEEP. It is a fact that these 'charitable organizations' only have to use a very small percentage of what they bring in financially to actual research. I know back in the early 1980's it was less than 5%, I don't know what it is now. This is why I stopped donating to the American Cancer Society LONG ago. This organization has no interest in finding a cure – if they did, it would put a billion dollar industry out of business. There are lots of alternative natural remedies that will cure these diseases. Not just manage them, but cure them. But there is no money to be made in curing a disease.. I wish people would wake up, empower themselves, and do their own research.
Here is a friends of ours ALS challenge;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pzBAQK1MVw
I agree 100% it's more profitable to perpetuate a lie even if it does harm thousands of sufferers. People say that this disease isn't researched b/c it's not profitable for Big Pharma… oh yeah? well, I think it's more profitable for them to create a campaign and have everyone donate to fund the drug, then sell the drug to 30k people a month. is it more profitable to know about coconut oil helping people with ALS or is it more profitable for them to get you to believe a lie that you need to give them money to create a drug that they then go back and sell to you?
People need to Wake UP and follow the money trail, research deeper.
and more $$ goes to their FUND RAISING than RESEARCH as well sad 🙁
Yeah, it's unfortunate… but being aware and sharing this and making healthier choices is the solution! awareness = empowerment!
Healthy Wild And Free I try to help someone or family locally, then I know they get 100% of donation
Ell Marree makes a lot more sense!
Think Coconut Oil Is a Healthy Option? This Might Make You Think Differently!
I've written to explain where the rest of that money goes http://palmerantony.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/the-als-association-is-it-really-only-spending-7-of-your-ice-bucket-challenge-donations-on-research/
