The United Way of Greater St. Louis makes big mistake!

The United Way of Greater St. Louis contributes heavily to the American Cancer Society. In 2008 alone, it gave the ACS $1,308,260! That was a big mistake. The American Cancer Society wastes a great deal of money each year lobbying for smoking bans using false claims to scare the public while not doing enough to find the real causes of the lung cancer spike in women who have never smoked. There are far better charities available that really do relevant epidemiological cancer research, seek cures for cancer and help victims of this dread disease.

Keep St. Louis Free! has joined, and urges all of St. Louis to join, the national boycott of the American Cancer Society.
