As per latest figures, the rate of incidence of cancer in the *developed world* is in the range of 338 per 100,000 (Denmark and France) 319 per 100,000 (US). Almost all European countries are in the range of 280 to 338 per 100,000 population.

While China hits app 200 cancer cases per 100,000 population, India is at the poor bottom at app 80 cases per 100,000 population ..

Humans in all folly thinks that it is worth taking this 400% more risk for a higher standard of living.

Ignorance cannot be an excuse ..

Kerala has 172 cases of cancer per 100,000 population, more than double the national average.

Human development and a higher standard of living is a costly and deadly choice !!
