It will not be incorrect to say that everything in India is or will be on a boom, be it economy, be it population, be it aging of the citizens. and hence longevity, or for that matter even health care facilities- Thus, it is imperative that national policies should be reformed in such a fashion that we take lessons from the west and correct ourselves when we have time in hand, well almost. Increase in globalization, and therefore travel, changing habits and lifestyles, all come with a price and the least desired of all is the globalized disease incidences and disease process. Population growth and aging are the largest contributors to the increasing total number of cancer cases and the shift in the burden of cancer and other chronic diseases toward economically developing countries. Cancer is now the third leading cause of death worldwide. This paper identifies several preventive measures that offer the most feasible approach to mitigate the anticipated global increase in cancer in countries that can least afford it.
