- Lung cancer is strongly linked to smoking
- Oral cancer is commonly associated with chewing tobacco, as is rampant in India
- The incidence of breast cancer is found to be higher among women who remain unmarried, who have not given birth to children or who bear children late in their life, resultantly who do not breast-feed their babies due to some or other causes.
- Even the conventional medical world is highly confused regarding the cause of cancer. Medical knowledge and care for women’s health has drastically reduced the childbirth related hazards in the modern world by increasing the number of breast feeding mothers. Similarly, discoveries in medical science combined with modern technology and health management have reduced the incidences of epidemics, infant mortality and injury related deaths by increasing the number of breast feeding mothers. Yet, breast cancer has increased by 47% in the last 15 years.
- It has also found answers to increase the patient’s longevity in cases of hypertension, diabetes and other such ailments
- On the other hand, longevity has itself become a major factor for greater incidence of cancer
- Estimates say about 12 million people will die of cancer by the year 2030
- Regarding smoking, why did the person start smoking? To overcome stress? To please friends? Is the difference in both these and such classes of smokers to be counted or not? What is the answer to such cravings for smoking?
- Does the emotional status of unmarried women matter?
- No breast-feeding? Why? Willingly or unwillingly? What is the reaction?
- Longevity of the life with what quality? Does it matter?
- Apart from the genetic carryover, modern lifestyles, changing cultural norms, chemical and industrial pollution and stressful urban environments have a lot to do with the growing incidence of cancer.
- Conventional medicine treats cancer with surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy irrespective of the nature and intensity of the cancer. Whatever be the reasons, deaths from cancer worldwide are projected to rise continuously due to limitations of the conventional medicine. Over 10 billion dollars is spent on lung cancer every year. About 13 billion dollars was spent for the treatment of breast cancer in 2006 worldwide, but still with increasing deaths.
