'Cancer - a silent killer'.

It is a matter of concern that our cities are more cancer - prone than the rural areas. In the early l990's we expected one out of 10 -15 urban Indians to get cancer in their life time, that is, the every second or third family would have to face this disease. It is due to high level of benzene in the air. It is also due to the high levels of pesticides in the agricultural field.

To check the steady growth of cancer in the country, the Government shall have to give priority to preventive action. More facilities like Diagnostic Centres and Cancer Hospitals need to be built for the treatment of cancer patients.

I would say that we all should be aware and devise ways and means to contain the spread of this deadly disease. For that, we shall have to check the wide use of pesticides.

We need more and more foodgrains for the growing population. But excessive use of pesticides causes various diseases. The developing countries have introduced environment friendly fertilizers in the agricultural field. So we have to introduce organic manure. Then crop pattern needs to be changed.

Besides this, a kind of public awareness programme will have to be under taken. The public is to be awakened towards the growth of cancer and its easy detection. This would help in the containing of this disease at its initial stages. If cancer is detected and treated at the early stages, it can't be destructive
