Cancer Time Bomb Threatening Economic Infrastructure

An article published by the British Medical journal reveals that there has been a tremendous increase in the number of cases of cancer in the Asian region. This has become a// major strain on the already burdened health system.

According to a WHO report the number of cases are expected to climb at the rate of 45% which will overtake the even the Americas to 156 to 100,000 as compared to 164 to 100,000 in the Asian region.

Obesity and the aging population of the Asian region too have added to the increase of deadly tumors. Most of the population does not have the reach to proper treatment like Herceptin and Avastin. The high cost of treatment for cancer is crippling the patient as well as the economy.

Richard Horton, editor of the British medical journal Lancet is of the view that “There really is going to be an incredible pandemic of cancer like we've not seen -- we couldn't have imagined it -- over the next 20 years. We barely have the health systems to handle infectious diseases, so how on earth are we going to deal with this?" `It is going to cost them a fortune in terms of health care expenditure,’ eliminate a huge number of people from the labor market.
