Cancer, the most-dreaded 6-letter word. Anyone who has had a brush with cancer knows how devasting the disease is, to the sufferer as well as family and friends. It is truly the “Emperor of all Maladies”, the most ravaging, destructive, pitiless, incurable group of diseases known to man.
But why do we have cancer prevention on this site? Because almost 2/3rds of all cancers are linked to unhealthy lifestyle practices.
Why should we care for cancer prevention? Why is this significant? The incidence of cancer is increasing: it’s no longer a rare disease. In the USA, every third person will get cancer at some point in time. As per statistics from cancerindia.org, the risk of developing cancer in India before the age of 75 years in males is 9.8% and in females is 9.4%. However, these data might reflect underreporting due to lack of awareness, undiagnosed cancer, and lack of reporting. Even with all these limitations, the number of reported new cases and deaths due to cancer have doubled in India from 1990 to 2016. Cancer, like other lifestyle-associated disorders, has been steadily increasing over the past 30 years, and changes in our lifestyle habits could be closely linked to it.
What if we tell you that you have power over cancer? That you can greatly reduce the risk of contracting this horrible disease by simple changes in your daily routine?
