Wow. This deserves to be front-paged. You might consider linking to this prescient Sept 2011 blog post as well:

New Study Shows That BPA And Methylparaben Block Drugs Used To Fight Breast Cancer

Today the San Francisco Chronicle is running a story about research conducted by two physicians at the California Pacific Medical Center that demonstrates that “two chemicals commonly used in consumer products – bisphenol A (BPA) and methylparaben – can interfere with the effectiveness of drugs used to fight breast cancer”.
...
Many sponsors who “proudly” place the “pink ribbon” on their products are the same companies that produce consumer products that contain BPA and methylparaben. Since the “pink ribbon” people have started their “crusade” against breast cancer, the breast cancer rates have not decreased at all. What has increased is the amount of corporate dollars flowing into the “Pink Ribbon” people’s bank accounts.

We are sorry but it is no longer acceptable for organizations such as the “Pink Ribbon” folks to use emotional manipulations to push their money making programs on the public. It is truly despicable that they allow the “Pink Ribbon” to be used by those that actually are causing harm.

Why is all the wacky conservatism (there is a little sane left) linking back to these pricks?

re: #3 ProLifeLiberal

Why is all the wacky conservatism (there is a little sane left) linking back to these pricks?

Two reasons: They want to promote The Wacky, and they want a slice of all The Wacky they can buy a piece of. That way they can have a say about it, even if they didn't start it.

Natural News is indeed a total crankage site.

I replaced the "Natural News" link with a "Mother Jones" link containing the same information. I know that "Mother Jones" is a lefty site (NTTAWWT) but I don't think it's an anti-vaxxer shrieking nutbag conspiracy site.
