These are national Cancer Institute statistics.
1.The number of novel cases of cancer (cancer occurrence) is 454.8 per 100,000 men and women per year (built on 2008-2012 cases).
2.In 2016, an estimated 1,685,210 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and 595,690 people will die from the disease.
3.Cancer mortality is higher among men than women (207.9 per 100,000 men and 145.4 per 100,000 women). It is uppermost in African American men (261.5 per 100,000) and lowest in Asian/Pacific Islander women (91.2 per 100,000). (Built on 2008-2012 deaths.)
4.The most common cancers in 2016 are projected to be: breast cancer, bronchus cancer, lung cancer, rectum cancer, colon and prostate cancer. Furthermore bladder cancer, thyroid cancer, melanoma of the skin, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, endometrial cancer, kidney and renal pelvis cancer, leukemia and pancreatic cancer.
5.The number of cancer losses (cancer mortality) is 170.2 per 100,000 men and women per year (based on 2008-2012 deaths).
6.The number of people living beyond a cancer diagnosis reached nearly 14.5 million in 2014. This number is expected to rise to almost 19 million by 2024.
7.Nearly 38.6 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer, at some point during their lifetimes (based on 2010-2012 data).
8.In 2014, an estimated 15,680 children and adolescents ages 0 to 19, were diagnosed with cancer. 1,950 died of the disease.
9.National expenditures for cancer care in the United States totaled nearly $125 billion in 2010. That number could reach $155 billion in 2020.
Unhappily, recent stats say that around 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop cancer in their lifetimes. This fact is even tougher to believe when you realize the way we “treat” the disease. It is not only unsuccessful but makes the symptoms of the disease worsen.
Doctor Hardin B Jones is a former professor of medical physics and physiology at Berkeley. He claims that chemo doesn’t work and it is a trick in the billion-dollar cancer industry. He claims that the only reason the doctors suggest chemotherapy as dealing for cancer it’s because of the money they get.
Fact that an average cancer treatment costs somewhere among $300,000 and even up to $1,000,000 makes his declaration more rational.
Dr. Jones has come to the assumption that chemotherapy does more damage to the patients than actually is treating the cancer. This is built on his research in the last 25 years.
Dr. Glidden says that people who reject chemotherapy treatment live on average around 12 years longer than people who accept it. Most patients undergoing chemotherapy die in time frame of 3 years since they are diagnosed with cancer. Some much faster than that (within few weeks from the time when being diagnosed.). He also claims that patients with breast cancer who reject treatment live four times longer than those who go through chemotherapy.
America spends $8,713 on healthcare, more than any other high-income nation in the world. Their life expectation is only 78, 8 years. This is mainly due to the fact that the media and the healthcare system in general center way more on treating diseases and conditions that actually educate people about the importance of preventative medicine. That is why we need to inform ourselves about treatments and cures for different syndromes and conditions.
Having a healthy diet, not stressing out, exercise and loving life; These are great for improving our health and living a longer and happier life.
