Thus no state/UTs is free from Iodine Deficient Disorder, Laxmi said and added that, therefore, no part of the country was excluded from the above mentioned restrictions.

Replying to a questions on the increasing number of cancer patients in the country, Lakshmi said that there an estimated seven to nine lakh new cancer patients in the country, which does not indicate any "significant" increase.

The Health Minister said that five expert groups have been set up by the Government on 29th Sept, 2005 to study the population profile of the states of Bihar, U.P., Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa and to suggest measures to be taken to improve their health and demographic status.
