AMERICAN CANCER RATES SET TO EXPLODE
“We cannot treat our way out of the cancer problem.” – Dr. Christopher Wild, director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer, as recently told to CNN.
Cancer rates are skyrocketing. Dr. Wild is correct in his assessment of the situation. Simply providing more treatment is not the best solution. And it’s not financially tenable over the long haul. Despite the fact that you’ve been told CANCER RATES are on the decline, you knew in your heart it wasn’t true. It seems like everyone and his brother is dealing with this vile disease. A brand new report (World Cancer Report) from the World Health Organization (WHO) reveals that they expect Cancer rates to increase by nearly 60% over the next two decades, with the number of deaths increasing by about ten percentage points less. The report goes on to say that the costs of treatment (well over a trillion dollars annually) are affecting even the strongest of the world’s economies (that would include us here in America).
The only saving grace in this study has to do with prevention. How does cancer prevention work? You have to change your lifestyle before you get the diagnosis. The number one cause of cancer worldwide? No surprise here. Lung Cancer (mostly due to smoking) causes nearly 2 million cases of Cancer per year, with nearly 90% of those ending in death. Other than flushing the cigarettes, the top two listed cancer-preventing measures are — again, no surprise — diet and exercise. Just down from there on the list were decreased alcohol consumption and WEIGHT LOSS. Other suggestions for avoiding Cancer would be found HERE.
