Breast cancer cases double, more treatments available

According to a new report, there has been a massive increase in new cases of breast cancer in Australia over the past 20 years. A recent similar report from the UK found that breast cancer was on the rise there as well. The report is by the Australian Institute of Health And Welfare and it shows that the number of women diagnosed with breast cancer each year has risen astronomically with numbers more than doubling in the past two decades.

Breast Cancer Prevention vs. War

Breast cancer is a raging and deadly epidemic killing ever-greater numbers of women in the United States and other industrialized countries every year. Breast cancer tops the list of cancer deaths among women in this country, annually claiming the lives of more than 40,000 women. The incidence of cancer overall has climbed to such epidemic proportions during recent decades that a man living in the United States now has a fifty-fifty chance he will have cancer during his lifetime. For a woman, the chance is 1 in 3. Within a single generation we have seen an increase in cancer of approximately 56 percent for men and 22 percent for women!
