Cancer is biting Heart Disease as major killer globally by 2010, says Health Experts Committee

Cancer is biting Heart Disease as major killer globally by 2010, says Health Experts Committee

This is just more evidence to support what researchers have believed for some time now that cancer can beat heart disease as the world’s top killer by 2010.

The World Health Organization (WHO), which released the report, attributed rising tobacco use in developing countries as a major reason for the shift, especially in China and India, where 40% of the world’s smokers now live. WHO says that an annual rise of 1% in cases and death is expected-with larger increases in China, Russia, and India. This means cancer cases will likely balloon to 27 million annually by 2030, with deaths reaching 17 million.

By 2030, WHO reports there could be 75 million people living with this disease around the world, a figure that many health care systems are not equipped to handle. “This is going to present an amazing problem at every level in every society worldwide,” said Peter Boyle, director of WHO’s International Agency for Research on this disease. The organizations are requesting governments to act, asking the United States to provide funding for cervical cancer vaccinations and to ratify an international tobacco control treaty. That means new cases will likely mushroom to 27 million annually by 2030, with deaths hitting 17 million. Underlying all this is an expected expansion of the world’s population – there will be more people around to get cancer.

Concerned about smoking’s impact on these rates in developing countries in the decades to come, the American Society also announced it will provide a smoking cessation counseling service in India. Other groups are also voicing support for more action. “Cancer is one of the greatest untold health crises of the developing world”, approximately 25 million persons are living with this disease throughout the world. It is the second leading cause of mortality worldwide, killing more people than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. In 2007 about 8 million people died of cancer, accounting for about 13% of all deaths. It has been estimated that approximately 72% of these deaths occurred in developing countries. If current trends continue, annual global mortality will rise to about 11.5 million persons by 2030. About one-third of these cases can be prevented and another third can be cured if detected early and treated properly.

Homeopathy doctors protect cancer cell with homeopathy medicines. Homeopathy medicines is not a specific science while modern medical science is specific science so all person cell mechanism are not the same but different so homeopathy bellowed in individualization. A global plan to tackle the growing cancer crisis in developing countries was presented on the last day of the UICC meeting, during a summit of more than 60 high-level policymakers, leaders and the health experts.
