London Health Science Centre Says Eat Chicken Wings For Cancer

Today's installment of what seems like a never ending parade of questionable partnerships between hospitals and junk food is the eat chicken wings for cancer campaign being promoted by London Health Science Centre.

This particular campaign comes hot off the heels of the recent report in the British Medical Journal highlighting the strong evidence of obesity being a contributor to at least 11 different types of cancer.

Once again, I have to ask, are the dollars raised in these sorts of campaigns worth the promotion of lifestyles that themselves contribute to the burden of illness being seen by the very programs and providers the fundraising is meant to support?
