Frequently Asked Questions
Bottle Caps For Chemo - Please note that one of our readers alerted us that the article that ran in last Friday's edition of the Baja Western onion about collecting bottle caps to get cancer treatments for kids is apparently based on a hoax Email, which began making rounds in the USA in 2008.
The email claimed that a large number of bottle caps, some say 1,000, others 1,500 or even 10,000, can be redeemed for one chemotherapy treatment for a patient in need. The email generated several news stories, some of which repeated the claims while others refuted them. In one case, students at a school and a church in Shelbyville, TN were duped by the hoax into collecting over 150,000 plastic bottle caps before realizing there was nowhere to deposit the bottle caps (photo at right). Some of the people collecting even dug through recycling bins to remove the soda tops from discarded bottles. The plastic lids themselves have very little recycling value, and by some reports are discarded during the sorting process at recycling facilities.
After extensive research, the American Cancer Society has concluded that the Plastic Bottle Caps for Chemo program is a hoax. The origin of the hoax remains unclear, but it is similar to other "cash for trash" hoaxes that have circulated worldwide for years. In other versions of the hoax, dialysis treatments may be provided, or veterans who have lost limbs may receive free prosthetics. snopes.com/business/redeem/bottlecap.asp. ☞ The Baja Western Onion
