Some Interesting point about Hospital & Health in World...

The report, released by Apollo Hospitals for World Health Day 2024, has given India the grim title of “cancer capital of the world.”

Statistics show that one-third of Indians suffer from pre-diabetes, two-thirds are pre-hypertensive, and one in ten suffers from depression.

A new study on India's health paints a worrying picture. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are on the rise, and cancer cases are rising rapidly across the country.

The rising incidence of cancer in India is due to a confluence of lifestyle, environmental and socio-economic challenges

Dr. Chinnababu Sunkavalli, Clinical Director-Surgical Oncology, Senior Consultant Surgical Oncology and Robotic Surgical Oncology, Yashoda Hospitals Hyderabad said that excessive use of both smoking and smokeless tobacco significantly increases the risk of lung, mouth and throat cancer.

In addition, air pollution from vehicles and industries exposes a large section of the population to carcinogenic substances, increasing the risk of various cancers.

It is vital to expand healthcare infrastructure, especially in underprivileged areas. Dr Bollineni emphasised the need for more cancer specialists, diagnostic facilities, treatment centres and affordable medicines.
