Why We Are Losing the War on Cancer: Cancer Rates to Soar
From the January 2005 edition of Dr. Fuhrman's Healthy Times:
Cancer rates are set to increase at an alarming rate globally, according to the World Cancer Report. This comprehensive global examination of cancer presented by the World Health Organization predicts rates to increase 50 percent by 2020. This may be good news for drug companies that will profit from the increased sale of cancer therapies as a result of the worldwide spread of cancer-promoting diet, sedentary lifestyles, and smoking. But it is bad news for the rest of us. Right now the chance of getting cancer in a developed country with a high consumption of meat, dairy, and processed food is over twice as high as developing nations. However, with increasing wealth and the exportation of America’s toxic diet, the gap is rapidly narrowing.
