THE Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole has said that cancer is one of the major causes of mortalities globally and his ministry is poised to reduce the number of preventable deaths by raising awareness among the general public and advocating to governments to take action against the disease.

Speaking in Abuja on Thursday to mark the World Cancer Day, he said that the celebration is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) of which Nigeria is a member, adding that “World Cancer Day unites the world under a single theme to highlight the on-going fight against cancer.”

Meanwhile, a housewife Mrs. Rasheedat Abass, who recently lost her child to cancer has resolved with courage and determination to help others avoid the painful loss of a child to the disease by sharing her experience with Nigerians.

Abass revealed this in an interview at a press conference on yesterday organised by Children With Cancer Intervention Initiative (CCII), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) to mark World Cancer Day, which is commemorated every year on February 4.

Adewole said that the 2016 World Cancer Day themed, “We Can, I Can,” emphasises the need to accelerate action to push the global fight against cancer to a whole new level.

  • Guess What

    The reason why this hydra headed monster is “prowling our streets” appearing unstoppable is the gulf between Allopathic and Naturopathic medicine. Allopathic medicine is quite effective in trauma care, ER, Surgery, quite a number of infectious diseases while Naturopathic medicine holds the ace in preventive health and Chronic disease where cancer in categorized. In Naturopathic medicine uses trace minerals to balance the body functions and structure for the body to heal itself of High Blood Pressure, Diabetics, Prostrate cancer, breast cancer etc. It is shameful that people still die of HBP when Calcium and magnesium along with other trace minerals and vitamins can make the difference. The body naturally produces insulin. It is share ignorance that diabetic patients are made to take insulin when the real problem is not more insulin but the cells walls are no longer responding to insulin stimulation to open up and absolve sugar from the blood stream. You can write for more information to overcome any of the chronic diseases:

      Well spoken and the inability to form integrative organic synergy between allopathy and naturopathy is odious for this toxic civilization. Bacterial pathogens are overwhelming allopathic antibiotics via resistance, fertilizer grown crops are depleting the body trace elements and adding none,and all the chemical sugars,and related drinks, fries,pastries,,canning,overprocessings,additives,and rise of environmental pollutants are making the system more carcinogenic than ever while powerful allopathic pharmaceuticals care more for profits than health. Meanwhile spurious pandemics threatening to render allopathic therapy obsolete presently go on rampage, unchecked fundamentally.. What next? Simple. The UN not even the WHO with vested interests needs to convene an urgent integrative health summit. Now
