Did you ever wonder why all of a sudden we see such a big push for “cancer centers” – Cancer Centers of America, Banner Good Samaritan Cancer Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital Cancer Center – and it’s the same all over the country.
McDonald’s always does demographics studies before they open a new facility – so does Starbucks. I would imagine that those who are in charge of building and expanding hospital facilities do the same thing.
So what do they know that the rest of us are still unaware of?
We know that we are seeing more cancer in family members and friends. We are told in the literature that it’s because we are diagnosing cancer earlier, therefore we have a better chance of treating it.
What we are not told is reflected in the headline of an article from the Associated Press post: “Global cancer cases could rise 75% by 2030”.

The article states: “Helicobacter pylori, hepatitis B and C viruses, and human papillomaviruses were responsible for 1.9 million cases, mainly gastric, liver, and cervix uteri cancers.”
The CDC has already recommended that the entire Baby Boomer generation be screened for Hepatitis C.

H pylori is something very easy to screen for. At the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine, we use a test that measures the DNA signature of this bacterium in the stool, as part of our work-up for gastro-intestinal problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or colitis.

Dr Grout also recommends her article “Leaky Gut”, click here >> http://goo.gl/fLZMe.
What we are further not told is that most cancer is preventable.
That’s right, most cancer is preventable.
Jill Jouret, in The Lancet, writes: “Commercial companies and marketing agencies are well acquainted with the power of mass media to shape attitudes and drive behaviours… Governments and other civic bodies have often sought to harness this power to guide health-related behaviours—to prevent disease and prolong and improve quality of life.
Participation in vaccination, cancer screening, and tobacco cessation programmes has been encouraged by media campaigns for years.”
And how is that working out for us? The incidence of cancer continues to rise.
Perhaps we are barking up the wrong tree – or maybe we are mistaking the trees in a park for the forest.
Remember that we (humans) are a chaotic system. Everything that we do impacts every other aspect of our being. Our choice of homes… relationships… foods… drugs… lifestyle…
We can certainly modify at least some of those things towards a more healthy pattern, thereby decreasing our chances of developing cancer in our lifetimes.
The Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine reminds us, “The choice is ours”.

Global burden of infection-related cancer revisited.
There were an estimated 12·7 million new cases of cancers which accounted for 7·6 million deaths globally in 2008, with about two-thirds of cancer deaths in less developed countries.1 Two previous comprehensive analyses of infections and cancers reported that in 1990 and 2002 about one in six cancer cases worldwide could be attributed to infectious agents.2,3.

Global Cancer Rates Set to Soar by 2030
Cancer Prevention Steps May Help Stem Rise in Cancer Rates
Worldwide cancer rates are set to jump more than 75% by 2030.
And these rates may increase even further — by 90% — among less developed countries, according to what one leading New York City cancer doctor calls an “eye-opening” new report in the journal Lancet Oncology.
If the new predictions hold, 22.2 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2030, compared with 12.7 million in 2008.
The predictions are based on rates of new cancer cases and cancer deaths in 2008 from 184 countries worldwide. These findings were then used to project how the cancer burden is likely to shift by 2030.

Global burden of cancers attributable to infections on 2008: a review and synthetic analysis.
Infections with certain viruses, bacteria, and parasites have been identified as strong risk factors for specific cancers. An update of their respective contribution to the global burden of cancer is warranted.
Of the 12·7 million new cancer cases that occurred in 2008, the population attributable fraction (PAF) for infectious agents was 16·1%, meaning that around 2 million new cancer cases were attributable to infections. This fraction was higher in less developed countries (22·9%) than in more developed countries (7·4%), and varied from 3·3% inAustraliaandNew Zealandto 32·7% in sub-SaharanAfrica. Helicobacter pylori, hepatitis B and C viruses, and human papillomaviruses were responsible for 1·9 million cases, mainly gastric, liver, and cervix uteri cancers. In women, cervix uteri cancer accounted for about half of the infection-related burden of cancer; in men, liver and gastric cancers accounted for more than 80%. Around 30% of infection-attributable cases occur in people younger than 50 years.
Around 2 million cancer cases each year are caused by infectious agents. Application of existing public health methods for infection prevention, such as vaccination, safer injection practice, or antimicrobial treatments, could have a substantial effect on the future burden of cancer worldwide.
