Cancer cases worldwide to jump to 22 million

22 Million New Cases of Cancer Every Year for Next Two Decades?

LONDON (AP) - The World Health Organization's cancer agency warns there will be 22 million new cases of cancer every year within the next two decades.

Monday's report from the International Agency for Research on Cancer estimated in 2012 there were 14 million new cases but predicted that figure would jump significantly due to global aging and the spread of cancers to developing countries. The Lyon-based cancer arm of the WHO said more than 60 percent of the world's cancer cases are in Africa, Asia, Central and South America.

In 2012, IARC said the top cancer killers were those of the lung, liver and stomach. The agency called for countries to consider stronger legislation to encourage healthier lifestyles, including measures to tackle consumption of alcohol and sugary drinks.

It's all part of the grand plan. Feed the world with cancer causing man manipulated fats and sugars and bingo, we've got a multibillion dollar business of big pharmacuticals providing "health care". Wake up people, they just want to suck your retirement dry at the end of your life, get you off the "Social" payroll, and make big profits in the mean time!

We all have cancer! Some of us have great immune systems that keep it in check. And it is about the money. Drug companies with billions of dollars of profits can't afford to cure it. Greed is all consuming.

PEOPLE!!! FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD!!! I know critical thinking is all but extinct but at least try to put the pieces together! Attempting so-called "Health Care Reform" is absolutely insane without looking at what our own corporate-run government is doing to our food supply! Where are all these new illnesses coming from? Why, especially, are our children getting sick? Why are other countries not allowing much of our foods across their borders? We didn't HAVE gluten-born illnesses before Monsanto started bio-engineering our wheat which now multiplies the amount of gluten it contains. We actually carve holes in the sides of livestock to force-feed our animals that which evolution did not intend and then we fill them with antibiotics live and grow faster. Our own government subsidizes this, which is why organic food is so much more expensive, and it makes "the man" richer. What does he care? He can afford to shop at Whole Food Markets for his family! But don't blame him. Americans are too stupid and lazy to take the time to find out what they are putting in their mouths. If a parent really cares about their children's future, why are they content going to a drive-through to shut their kids up with fast, nutritionless, foods that don't even deteriorate when left under the car seat? The answers and cures are found in nature but what are we doing to nature? The American Medical Association doesn't want you to know this because it would mean jeopardizing their second and third homes in Aruba and the Alps! Watch "The Forbidden Cures" online. Watch "Food, Inc.?" People get mad when I have them do this. "I did not want to know that," is the common answer. People would rather be ignorant until they become ill. THEN they stop being lazy. THEN they care.
What's the answer? Since money is now placed higher than human life, the only way to solve this problem is at the cash register. The only way to cast your vote for change is to buy organics. Once "the man" realizes that this is what we want, he will have to start subsidizing REAL food that contains REAL NUTRITION in order to make his money.

We have one NATURAL cancer killer that the Government & big phrma does not want you to know! ..CBD the one compound from Hemp or Marjauna plant, that cures all kinds of things & stops cancer cells in their tracks! Eat a lot of eatables that contain high level of cbd....Cannabidiol, look it up....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabidiol In November 2007, researchers at the California Pacific Medical Center reported that CBD shows promise for controlling the spread of metastatic breast cancer. In vitro CBD down-regulates, or "turns off", the activity of ID1, the gene responsible for tumor metastasis[22] in breast and other types of cancers, including the particularly aggressive triple negative breast cancer.[22][23][24] The researchers in September 2012 said they hope to start human trials soon.[25]

Cannabidiol has been shown to inhibit cancer cell growth with low potency in non-cancer cells. Although the inhibitory mechanism is not yet fully understood, Ligresti et al. suggest that "cannabidiol exerts its effects on these cells through a combination of mechanisms that include either direct or indirect activation of CB2 and TRPV1 receptors, and induction of oxidative stress, all contributing to induce apoptosis."[24]

Non-intoxicating cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD) and other more pronounced CB2 agonists such as cannabinol (CBN, an immunosuppressant), are now seen as promising candidates for anti-tumor drugs since they experimentally reduce the size of in-vivo xenografts, for example gliomas. Combinations of submaximal THC doses and CBD have both been successfully applied to greatly increase in-vitro efficacy of temozolomide in glioblastoma multiforme cell lines. CBD likely exerts its effects through the induction of apoptosis by Reactive oxygen species.[26] Non-psychoactive cannabinoids can be administered at much higher doses without the well-known side effects that are sometimes associated with the drop-out rate in trials involving psychoactive cannabinoids.

A team of researchers from the University of California at Irvine proposed in February 2013 that CBD's anti-malignant effect by way of apoptosis may be due to its potential action on "mutant p53 proteins in cancer cells," due to cannabidiol's chemo-physical similarity to stictic acid, a promising anti-cancer compound found in some species of lichens that acts on the aforementioned proteins. The University biologists, chemists and computer scientists "identified an elusive pocket on the surface of the p53 protein that can be targeted by cancer-fighting drugs".[27][28]

THANK YOU, LEE !!! And, others, view the documentary "The Forbidden Cures." It's online. It's become ever more obvious that America is now run by the corporate world which puts financial gain above human life and there is no one to protect the American citizen from our own government.
Also, Google the words "cancer" and "turmeric" together. You'll be glad you did.

What are the R&D organizations doing with the donated money to support a cure for cancer? Someone is making lots of money off us, and hiding the cures !!!!!!!!!!!!

They're using it to develop new chemo drugs that will keep people alive longer so they can drain more of their money before they ultimately die. Poison, slash and burn (chemo, surgery and radiation) have about a 2% success rate. Natural cures have a much higher rate and are not debilitating in the process.

As did I - early detection is the key if the government doesn't screw with allowing insurance to pay for early detection
