The Hindu : Health / Medicine & Research : â€˜Cancer killed 5.56 lakh in India in 2010â€™
think it is about time we banned the Tobacco and its products. We can save Millions of Indians from death. What do you say
India's cancer deaths are similar to the US. I can imagine numbers are widely unreported.
so what people should do now. stop smoking?
why not? Do you knows how many western countries have banned it? Even US has banned it last i heard.
â€¨â€¨Why ?? How will be the population of India come down ?? They're doing suicide.â€©Knowing that it's gonna kill them, still they use these stuffs than let them use, why do you want to ban these stuffs ??â€©I always be happy when I found news about "Lattha Kands".It's people who can't afford one time meal, can buy latthas for nothing.We don't need such people here.They're digging their own grave than let them do their karma.
â€¨â€¨No No continue smoking, it will help India to reduce population.
Mate what you failing to see is that the health problem of the poor is more likely to fall on our heads. With the govt proposal for free insurance for poor coming up, this increase in the health problems due to smoking will affect us indirectly . So no, actual cost for us will be more
I did not see anything about cancer screening.
Screening and Testing to Detect Cancer - National Cancer Institute
this is propaganda they are planning to rise the rate of my Kings to 200% now it's Rs5.50 so it will be Rs17 the report shows 1ly 48% die of tobacco then those who dont smoke also die equally so we die happily after a fag whats their problem.
48% of the tobacco users die while 52 % of the Tobacco users dont. This means Tobacco user has one in two chances of dying from cancer
the incidence of cancer in the smokers is 106(rural)-46(urban)/100000 while the incidence of the cancer in non - smokers is about 6-13/100000. So the relative risk is 106/13= 8(approx.).. So you are eight times more likely to die of cancer than a non smoker .
I have seen many examples where smoking/drinking caused cancer/death so no wonder about the figures.
You know why these people are poor ??? Because they want to remain poor, they don't work, they use money to satisfy their bad urges.Let them die and throw this moron govt out of power.Programs like MNREGA increases burden to nation, nothing else.Poor people won't change their way of life, even more people who were doing labor work in past would leave to do so....
Oh, thank you for verifying countless expensive studies held to prove the link between such bad habits and cancers.......
You are teaching a pure right winger the ills of socialism. You should know me Better
I'm not teaching you socialism, I'm telling you socialist policy program like Mnrega is nothing but waste of tax payers money.I'm capitalist.....

And for you Info- Right Winger is a Capitalist
I am still surviving!
