Cancer Research on Dog Breeds... Tax Dollars Well Spent

I hope you don't feel the government siphoning off more of your income to fund cancer research is an admirable theft. Cancer researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA have discovered that Chihuahuas Aren't Dogs.

A Few Facts You Might Want to Know
FACT: 4,770,519,000 has been appropriated for the National Cancer institute.
FACT: This is 230 Million more than 2003 and 110 Million more than 2004.
FACT: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is currently receiving funding for 232 research projects according to the NCI website
FACT: Even the live assitant from the NCI website was unable to find NCI budget disbursements available on the web. The best she could do was give me a phone number 1-301-435-3848 of the Administrative Office of the NCI to call on a "public inquiry"

I will conclude by saying that I support Cancer Research. I lost a dear friend several years ago to a 7 year bout with breast cancer. I believe the more research into Cancer we conduct the more we will see that cancer is the result of violating God's laws on nutrition. I support the PRIVATE funding of this research. I am most appalled when I see an organization receiving federal dollars squandering their money on the research of disease in household pets. Organizations like the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to should be called to account for this kind of frivolous squandering.
