Cancer Top Killer in China

Posted by feww on April 21, 2014


Estimated 3.5 million new cancer cases kill 2.5 million Chinese each year

About 3.5 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed annually, leading to at least 2.5 million deaths from the disease, said the deputy director of the National Cancer Registration Center, Xinhua reported.

“Although Chinese people’s livelihood has improved, cancer incidence and mortality have also been on the rise,” he said.

Unsurprisingly, cancer has taken just a few decades to become the top killer in China.

“In 1964, cancer ranked the fourth-biggest cause of death, while from 1970 to 1989, it ranked second, and data from 2007 showed that it had become the top killer for Chinese,” said a former senior  official at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Cancer in Beijing

Meanwhile, cancer was identified as the No.1 cause of death in Beijing for the seventh consecutive year (2007 to 2013), in a report released by the municipal commission of health and family planning this week, Xinhua said.

Mass Starvation Threatens 7 Million South Sudanese

South Sudan is weeks away from worst famine in recent African history: UN

Unless comprehensive action is taken to address hunger in South Sudan before the planting season ends in May, the country faces one of the worst famines in African history, UN agencies have said.

“If we miss the planting season, there will be a catastrophic decline in food security,” said Toby Lanzer, the Deputy Special Representative to the Secretary-General for the UN Mission in South Sudan. “What will strike that country, and it will hit about seven million people, will be more grave than anything that continent has seen since the mid-1980s.”

Based on the UN assessment, the crucial planting season in South Sudan will end in less than 5 weeks.
