The American Cancer Society (ACS) is the richest charity in the world with assets of over $1.3 billion. Their executives in several states earn 6 figure salaries, including fringe benefits, travel expenses and pensions.
 
After extravagant salaries, overhead and marketing, the rest of their budget goes to “research,” much of it spent on fraudulent animal experimentation which cannot be extrapolated to human beings, but is a huge part of Big Pharma’s multi-billion dollar vivisection industry.
 
Over 35 billion dollars have been spent on animal experimentation in search of a cancer cure in spite of the fact that vivisectors know that finding a cure to cancer by torturing animals is scientifically impossible.
 
Nevertheless, ACS continues to solicit donations purporting to be looking for a “cure” which is always “just around the corner” if only the public will give them more money.

Even though political donations from a charity are illegal, ACS donates tens of thousands of dollars a year to both political parties and spends an average of $5 million in lobbying expenses.
