It wasn’t what the world wanted to hear nor was it welcome news, but the World Health Organization has let us know the bad news. Here is the info as CNN reported it:
“Cancer cases are expected to surge 57% worldwide in the next 20 years, an imminent “human disaster” that will require a renewed focus on prevention to combat, according to the World Health Organization.
The World Cancer Report, produced by the WHO’s specialized cancer agency, predicts new cancer cases will rise from an estimated 14 million in 2012 to 22 million annually within two decades. Over the same period, cancer deaths are tipped to rise from 8.2 million a year to 13 million annually.”
They do state that there is no way to treat our way out of the problem, that prevention is necessary, and that about half of all cancer cases are preventable. Obviously those who smoke raise the probability for them and higher for those around them, but what we eat also can hurt us.
As our readers know, your Truganic hosts are keen on keeping your health through healthy eating, We ask that you read your labels carefully, and stay away from processed foods. Avoid chemicals such as High Fructose Corn Syrup and other artificial sweeteners since all are known cancer-causing agents, in addition to causing other health and mental issues. We have also pointed out it is better to use food-based vitamins than the chemical ones pushed by retailers. The chemical vitamins do not help our body, and can many times hurt it.
With a little caution and some home cooking, you can keep the doctors away much more easily. And don’t forget your apple a day!
