Deaths from cancers are on the rise across the globe. According to a Fox News article, "cancer deaths were up 8 percent from 7.6 million in a previous survey in 2008 and breast cancer killed 522,000 women last year up 14 percent in the same period, according to the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)." www.foxnews.com/health The blame is being placed on the lifestyles of Westerners. Apparently, the more industrialized countries are adapting the lifestyles of Westerners and is reflected in their diets and subsequently hormonal changes.
The leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide is breast cancer. Small underdeveloped countries struggle to fight these diseases. The research and technology are not there and the education simply is not reaching the women. Worldwide, it is estimated that "14.1 million people developed cancer in 2012, up from 12.7 million in 2008. And, 1.7 million women were newly diagnosed with breast cancer last year, up by more than 20 percent from 2008." www.foxnews.com/health
Other cancers found around the globe are stomach, liver, and lunch as well as incidences of HPV the virus that causes cervical cancer.
It is inherently important that advances in research reach those underdeveloped countries worldwide to diminish the incidences of fatal cancers as well as make available education, early testing and treatment.
