By 2025, WHO claims, the annual number of new cancer diagnoses is expected to increase by roughly 37 percent, rising from a current annual total of about 14.1 million people to a shocking 19.3 million people. The number of cancer patients that will end up dying from the disease or its corresponding treatment is also expected to rise by about 39 percent, jumping from a current total of about 8.2 million people annually to 11.4 million people.
Specifically in the U.S., the annual number of new cancer cases is expected to increase at a slightly lesser rate than that of the world at large. According to the data, about 1.6 million people are added to the ranks of cancer patients every year in the U.S., a number that is expected to rise by about 31 percent to 2.09 million people annually in 2025. However, cancer deaths are predicted to increase by about 38 percent during the same time period, nearly matching the predicted global increase.
"In most developed countries, cancer is the second largest cause of death after cardiovascular disease, and epidemiological evidence points to this trend emerging in the less developed world," reads a Q&A section about cancer on the WHO website. "This is particularly true in countries in 'transition' or middle-income countries, such as in South America and Asia. Already more than half of all cancer cases occur in developing countries."
Countries developing according to Western standards most prone to cancer
While cancer rates are admittedly rising all across the globe, some of the most afflicted countries include places like China and India that are developing according to Western standards. In India, for instance, U.S.- and European-based biotechnology companies have played a major role in transitioning native cultures to genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which are strongly linked to causing cancer.
The same is true in China, where many modern cities are being patterned after American ones, including similar lifestyle and dietary patterns. Traditional ways of living, including native foods and heirloom agriculture, are being rapidly replaced with consumerism, materialism and everything these things entail -- lots of convenient "junk" foods, minimal physical activity, and of course plenty of Western drugs and surgery.
"It's by design," wrote one McClatchy commenter. "GMO food causes cancer (and the prevailing depopulationists and eugenicists know it because they created the stuff). Same with cancer-causing vaccines. Same with polluted air. Same with fluoridated water (fluoride is proven to increase bone cancer risk). BPA in the plastics, on printed receipts, in our environment and in our very clothing are estrogen-mimickers that increase breast cancer and can cause men to be sterilized and feminized."
Not surprisingly, WHO officials have been silent about all these known factors associated with cancer. And speaking on behalf of the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a similar international health organization, head of cancer information Dr. David Forman told the media that tobacco and alcohol -- and basically nothing else -- are the two primary drivers of cancer, an ignorant and entirely preposterous notion that reeks of an ulterior agenda.
"Western culture and its associated illnesses are spreading across the globe," summed up another intelligent McClatchy commenter.
