      The World Health Organization (WHO) has projected a concerning surge in new cancer cases, estimating that the number will surpass 35 million by 2050. This marks a substantial 77% increase from the 20 million cases recorded in 2022. A comprehensive survey encompassing 115 countries revealed that most nations fall short in allocating adequate funds for cancer care and treatment.

      In the year 2022 alone, WHO reported nearly 10 million global cancer-related deaths. The statistics indicate that approximately 1 in 5 individuals will develop cancer during their lifetime, with 1 in 9 men and 1 in 12 women succumbing to the disease. Notably, tobacco usage remains a significant contributor to lung cancer, particularly in Western countries.

      Moreover, the consumption of ultra-processed foods and processed meats has emerged as additional risk factors exacerbating the incidence of cancer, particularly colorectal cancer. These findings underscore the urgent need for global attention and resources to address the escalating rates of cancer and enhance preventive measures.

      When one looks at the all these suggestions, I would say all of it contribute to the rise in cancer cases. I will also add that poverty places a major role. Unaffirdabillity to healthy crops as well as the lack of education. Support groups are available, but in very low income families, it might be difficult to attend such a group.

        Poverty is a significant contributing factor. Lack of medical care, poor quality of life and worse disease prognosis.
