OBESITY AND CANCER



Stigma has effectively condemned Africa with HIV and many more dogmatic devilish developments, recently, Ebola. We get so messy to forget that there are as much as seven incontrovertible deadly sins.  At times there is no sweeter sound than the crumbling of fellow Africa.



We learn to put our emotional luggage where it will do some good, instead of using it to shit on other people, or blow up the unfortunate minority. 

With all that demonised instinct towards the poor, pride and wrath seem just to label the root of evolution by and let the continent's incompetency swallow itself. No, there are other sins for America and Europe to acknowledge as per their naivety. Gluttony, Lust, Sloth and sheer Greed will always disintegrate families and relations. Obvious example, Obesity as an outcome of what we do or do not do, is associated with close to 500,000 new cancer cases worldwide each year, and nearly two thirds of obesity related cancers occur in North America and Europe, a new report shows.

We know too much and feel too little. At least, we feel too little of those creative emotions from which a good life springs, but no matter how far we have gone on a wrong road, we can turn back.

A research data from 184 countries showed that excess weight was associated with 345,000 (5.4 percent) of new cancers in women in 2012, and 136,000 (1.9 percent) of new cancers in men in 2012. Hold on it is not the facts which guide the conduct of men, but their opinions about facts; which may be entirely wrong. We can only make them right by discussion

Among women, postmenopausal breast, endometrial and colon cancers accounted for nearly three quarters (250,000 cases) of obesity related cancers, while colon and kidney cancers accounted for more than two thirds (nearly 90,000 cases) of obesity related cancers in men.

Excess weight was associated with about 8 percent of cancers in women and 3 percent of cancers in men in developed nations, compared with 1.5 percent of cancers in women and 0.3 percent of cancers in men in developing nations.

The sky is not less blue because the blind man does not see it.

In 2012, the highest number of obesity related cancers was in North America, with more than 110,000 (23 percent of the worldwide total), while the lowest number was in sub-Saharan Africa, with 7,300 cases (1.5 percent of the global total). In Europe, there were 66,000 obesity-related cancer cases.

Rates of obesity related cancers varied widely among countries. Among men, rates were particularly high in the Czech Republic (5.5 percent of new cancer cases in 2012), Jordan and Argentina (4.5 percent), and the U.K. and Malta (4.4 percent). Among women, rates were highest in Barbados (12.7 percent), Czech Republic (12 percent), and Puerto Rico (11.6 percent).

Rates were lowest in the countries of sub Saharan Africa, with less than 2 percent in men and less than 4 percent in women. 

Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case. But in a self propelled obesity, If we could sell our experience for what they cost us, we'd all be millionaires.

Global health resources specifically for cancer prevention are not so large, and the resources targeted at obesity must be balanced against those for other important causes of cancer, particularly infections and tobacco use, which are each associated with much larger proportions of cases.

Closing our doors to gluttony and sloth by simply learning to share and offer a helping hand, takes some weight off our backside. Situations come to pass, they never come to stay. And when we allow them to pass and disappear into the past like shadows, our vibrant spiritual selves remain, powerful in the present moment. That is the constant, the unchanging, in an ever changing world. Take heed of the lust and be less greedy by caring for and acknowledging other's feelings. 

Helpless, unknown, and unremembered, most human beings, however sensitive, idealistic, intelligent, go through life as passengers rather than chauffeurs. Although we may pretend that it is the chauffeur who is the social inferior, most of us, like Toad of Toad Hall, would not mind a turn at the wheel ourselves. The sure mark of one born with noble qualities is being born without envy.
