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.
