nathan11.11 Nowadays we can find the iconic #PinkRibbon on everything from t-shirts to hats, and even #cancercausing products like #friedchicken and #cosmetics loaded with #carcinogens that are banned across the #EuropeanUnion.

A lot of people buy into the #blindhype of the pink ribbon and @SusanGKomen but few people know the #truehistory of the ribbon and how it used to actually symbolize prevention of cancer rather than fundraising, #radiation, #chemotherapy and #drugs.

The idea of using a ribbon as a symbol first appeared in 1979, when Penney Laingen tied yellow ribbons as a message of hope of seeing her husband again, who was taken hostage in Iran. Then in 1990 #AIDS activists colored the ribbon red for those dying from the disease. At the same time the #SusanGKomen #BreastCancer Foundation was seen giving out pink visors, not ribbons, to breast cancer survivors during the #RacefortheCure. It took a few small occurrences to give birth to the pink ribbon and make it the symbol of #breastcancerawareness.

In 1992, news sources discovered a woman named #CharlotteHaley who hand made peach-colored ribbons to raise awareness that not enough money was being used for the research of #cancerprevention.

Each ribbon was attached to a card that read: “#TheNationalCancerInstitute’s annual budget is $1.8 billion, only 5% goes for cancer prevention. Help us wake up legislators and America by wearing this ribbon.” It was a #grassrootsmovement that asked for no money, only awareness. But in 1992 the editor of the magazine Self and cosmetic companies turned the symbol into what is it today – a #moneydriven #popularityseeking #marketingcampaign.
