I love your type. Are you suggesting that there are medicines developed WITHOUT animal testing. Let me be the first to tell you you are totally misinformed. ALL medicines are animal tested.
So your telling the truth and they are all lying? Like you have said .. do you have proof to substantiate this ?
23 years in research drug discovery. 6 pharmaceutical companies, 3 "charities". 11 Drug discovery projects. That's my proof. I no longer work in that business now, so I am free to talk about it. Let me ask you a question. Name one drug discovery company that does not do animal testing for their medicines?? I would love to know!!!
Sounds like redundancy has taken its toll on you, poor fellow. I hear there are jobs going at pound land that may suit you?
I have many qualifications- you don't need to worry about that. Poundland jobs are only for returning indigenous brtiish troops who have been made redundant from their child-murdering in Iraq and Afghanistan -

Do not give your money to this "charity": They spend it on themselves.
If you are going to make claims like this, you should at least include some sources. :|
http://www.australiannationalreview.com/cancer-research-fraud-claims-nobel-prize-winner/http://edition.cnn.com/2015/05/19/us/scam-charity-investigation/http://www.rense.com/general9/cre.htm
Basically the claims are (in a nutshell) that big pharma makes huge amounts of money from treating cancer, and that finding a cure would not be in their (financial) interests. My gut feeling is there is some truth in that but I didn't see evidence of cancer research uk being directly implicated?
Cancer research is also big pharma- it's a charity with many companies (all hidden from the likes of you)
is that you Mr Icke?
No. I am not Mr Icke. The Mr Ickes of this world- you will find- successfully runs Cancer Research. He want you to give money to him so he can wage his brave western war against the jihadi cancer boogyman. But in fact he takes your money for his salary and freebies. I know this because I used to work for Mr Icke and his type and his organisation. His misinformation works wonders on you. Now- you get back to baking them cakes for CR.

Well, I'm dumbfounded, having had two surgeries for cancer and now having chemo (6 off) followed by radio for 5 weeks,, I have been fund raising so much and now I wonder where my donation money is actually going... paying for business class flights???
The short answer is that some does. But, the majority does not. For these charities, the bottom line to cancer it that is is not a disease......it is a business model. Hope you get well soon!
Thanks for your response, appreciated!!! I am so deflated but you know i believe you are so right!

yes unfortunately its true ignoring the fact the directors earn 240k a year, just google cancer research uk scam and its one of the worst out there.....pharma is big business.
A start- up company I worked for in 1998 backed by the ICRF paid the CEO £125 K a year for talking. It paid its scientists between 18K to 30 K for real research in labs. ( I got 23 K) . I think that gives you an idea of where CRUK priorities lie.
Their clinical trials speak for themselves, and 1998 is nearly twenty years ago
Yes, they certainly do research, there is no question of that. I showing you where most of your money is really going. Also, you are correct, that was 20 years ago. My last biotech was in 2007 and such abuses had increased. CEOs were paying themselves even more than £125 K in 2007 than 1999. Are you saying since 2007 till today, there has been a massive clean up of this scam called CRUK?? Trust me, there hasn't. I know people still working there today. If anything is it even worse. Today they specialise in making up job titles for people they employ that have nothing to do with research into finding cancer medicines on over-inflated salaries. Titles like Technology Transfer Managers, Transitional Science Executives, Business Development Managers. You tell me, what right does a "charity" have employing such people?? They sit at their desks and talk and talk and have coffee before more talk. It is absolutely disgraceful. On their salaries you could employ 3 scientists for everyone of them. Don't get me wrong, you are innocent in all this. They are the ones in the wrong. Your deal is legitimate. However, you are funding deviants whose primary concern is not finding anti-cancer medicines (that may be a secondary concern). Their primary concern for these people is paying themselves and their mates in made up job titles and living it up with your money you donated.

Have to agree wth the cynics in here. Not a fan of charities and there underhanded tactics these days
Bunch of cynics in this thread! Many charities offer this service and while a donation is suggested it is by no means forced, I see it as a great idea for charities to potentially raise some much needed money while at the same time helping the community and spreading awareness.
I'm sorry there is a conflict of interest here. A potential beneficiary is involved in the will making process albeit as a secondary party. Not a good combination.
By all means give to this charity. But keep your will making decision separate from your living charity giving process.
Please donate too

It's cheap but for cancer research there's something unsettling at that price, how can you fund raise at 29p.

Note this isn't a dig at the OP, in fact this is a great opportunity to buy a cheap mug and donate a few quid to the charity on the side !? :)

Not sure. Been into one of these places. They're never actually doing that much cancer research. Just a couple of old women going through the pockets.


That's damn funny. LOL.
Seriously, lets 'big' Cancer Research up, though, everyone loves charities esp. when they o good work.

How much of the revenue from each sale goes to Stand Up To Cancer?
Unfortunately we cannot disclose exactly how much revenue from each order goes to Stand Up To Cancer as this varies by product and offer. We aim to buy all our merchandise at the best possible cost so that we can maximise the amount of money that we can pass across for research. ​
Seems to contradict

Where does the money from the sale of merchandise go?
100% of the money raised through Stand Up To Cancer goes directly into research, into a ring-fenced Stand Up To Cancer fund.




Not really 100% gprs to them but they do not say how much profit is in each item. They do not get the products for free

"The next time you are asked to donate to a cancer organisation, bear in mind that your money will be used to sustain an industry which has been deemed by many eminent scientists as a qualified failure and by others, as a complete fraud. If you would like to make a difference, inform these organisations that you won't donate to them until they change their approach to one which is focussed on prevention and study of the human condition. We have the power to change things by making their present approach unprofitable. It is only through our charitable donations and taxes
that these institutions survive on their present unproductive path."

http://rense.com/general9/cre.htm

Everyone should stop donating to cancer research charities because they don’t focus enough on prevention rather than a cure? And cancer research is a failure … because we haven’t cured cancer?

If you look at cancer research website, they are researching prevention as well as cures, they are educating about life style, genetic risk and encouraging people to notice warning signs.

They do carry out/commission medical research to try aid the fight against cancer. But without organisations carrying out research, then cancer would be death sentence, but for many people its not.

Maybe progression to find a cure is to slow, but surely slow is better than no progression at all.
Isn't it better giving your money to Cancer Research rather than to Clintons???

I'd love to vote this hot but I just don't believe in Cancer Research - a hefty chunk of donations goes solely towards advertising and mail shots which they cloud by defining it as "essential to fighting cancer". I'd rather support my local hospice who deal with those fighting cancer now. That's just my two cents having gone through it myself, not tin-hatted conspiracy theorism.

Well how does amassing all the worlds money cure cancer?

1. You donate £100
2. They spend it on a lawyer to write my will
3. I donate £200 in 30 years when I'm dead.

I presume at some point in the future they'll have enough and have a go at some cancer research?

You're clearly completely ignorant as to how major charities work - so why exactly did you donate to them in the first place... The money they spend on will making will be something like 0.00001% of their budget - it doesn't prevent them working on cures for cancer. Last year they spent £332m on cancer research, funding 4000 doctors and 200 clinical trials.
If mocmocamoc is 'completely ignorant' as to how charities work, then you must be completely ignorant of simple economics if you cannot see his logic.

Take the example he posed -- how much do you think the charity would benefit by if it pays the solicitor £100, the client wills the charity £200, and then dies in 30 years time? The answer is nothing. It actually makes a loss. Assuming an average inflation rate over those 30 years at the same rate over the last 30 years, the £200 would be worth only £66.

I think most people taking advantage of this 'free' will service would not, on average, be as generous as donating as much as £200, anyway. So, even if the average time between making the will and dying is shorter that 30 years, I cannot see the charity coming out ahead.

I have given money to them before, I thouht it was for Cancer research. If I'd known it was to pay for peoples wills in the off chance they might leave them some money in 40 years I might not have bothered.

Maybe if they spent the money on research we might cure it one day

Maybe you could post every item listed on ebay or something?

PMSL I have my first stalker on hotukdeals.

How long ago were those deals? Jog on son, there's more to the community than racing to be the first to post that haribo are reduced by 50p. For example, as a result of my post in the Sky 1TB offer, I have had several pm's asking for advice. Not the first time. My apologies for not visiting every day, but alas I have a life. Perhaps you should try it. No need to reply any more, I get bored by oxygen thieves such as yourself way too quickly.
I wasn't creating a rumour, I was stating my own suspicions.

I am sure everyone would say that this is a great charity to support !I am sure the charity does good work, but I'm voting cold for the following reasons--Our high streets are being killed off by multiple retailers,and smaller towns in many cases are full of charity shops,pound shops, and financial institutuions. Take a walk down your local high street and ask any of the smaller family run businesses how often somebody comes into their shop and gives them stock to sell,at no charge. Ask them how often someone walks into their shop and volunteers to work as many hours as possible each week for no salary.Add to that the window display material and other advertising produced on a national scale, which a single shop cannot afford to use/produce,and you can see it is actually unfair competition !If you think that someone buying a second hand item of clothing is not taking money away from a shop selling new items then think again. Few people have unlimited spare cash each week,so every pound spent in a charity shop is a pound which is not available to spend elsewhere.At one time we had jumble sales at the weekend,and the rest of the time retail shops were about the only way to buy something. Now it is an all week long 'jumble sale' in charity shops, and our local shops/high streets/families are suffering.My local cancer research shop is earning so much money they can afford to leave the door open in the middle of winter,with staff working in summer clothing in a heated shop !! Surely that is a waste of money,which could help the charity---hypocrites the lot of them !

What a ****.
