Cancer is the modern-day plague – Let’s face it & kick it out from our space

You would agree that the global population is increasing and the world is aging. Now the latest cancer report released by the ICMR and NCDIR, Bengaluru confirms the sharp increase in India’s cancer cases, estimating that it could further increase by 12% in the next five years. The World Cancer Report said in India in 2018-19, there are about 1.16 million new cancer cases, and more than 780,000 deaths due to cancer.
In India, the 6 most common cancer types were breast cancer, oral cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, and colorectal cancer.
Breast Cancer & Cervical Cancer is rapidly rising amongst women in urban areas where Cervical Cancer is the second most common cancer in India.

Oral and Lung cancers are highest among men and women in both urban and rural areas.

Therefore, making people aware of eating healthy, or living a healthy lifestyle, avoiding tobacco, etc is not only important but also a societal need.

To make people aware of its hazardous impact government has launched various health care schemes and is doing so many Cancer Awareness Campaigns too.

Though it’s 2021, there are villages and small towns where people still not agreeing with health screening as they found it all useless. however, these campaigns are very helpful in making them understand the importance of screening.

It is also vital to follow a healthy lifestyle, and sharing survivor stories gives a message of hope and confidence. All this in one frame helps the sufferer to deal with the current situation, hence it’s important to come out and talk about it. those who have suffered from it and have dealth with it successfully must come out for others and support them by sharing their Cancer suffering story.

Why we should care about the use of toilets

Why we should care about the use of toilets

While we might take toilets for granted, billions in the world don’t. Toilet or washroom and all related – loosely called sanitation – plays a vital role in our lives: not only in our daily lives but also for our sustainable development.
Maintain basic hygiene is important for not only human health but also good for environmental development.

Facility for safe human disposal and feces includes maintaining hygiene with the help of doing proper disposal of garbage and wastewater disposal too.
The main agenda of good sanitation is to provide a healthy living environment to all, this also helps in protecting natural resources, provides security, safety, and dignity for people when they defecate.

Through this, we are going to talk facts and figure about toilets and sanitation management.
Today, about one-third of the world’s population lack access to improved sanitation, and 1 billion people still practice open defecation

Open defecation is a leading cause of diarrheal death, says the WHO. The diarrhea death toll stands at around 6,000 a day, mostly of young children.

In India, there are many villages, towns, and rural areas where people lack access to improved sanitation and so they practice open defecation, more than any other region in the world.

Because of zero healthy sanitation practice, half of the malnutrition cases are linked to chronic diarrhea caused by lack of clean water, decent sanitation, and good hygiene, including handwashing with soap.

It is important to spread washroom and sanitization awareness among people because Just 1 gram of feces can contain 10 million viruses, 1 million bacteria, 1,000 parasite cysts, and 100 parasite eggs.

To prevent this issue one of the basic steps is to make people learn that hand-washing with soap after using the toilet is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent diarrheal diseases and pneumonia.

We must raise awareness and inspire action to tackle the sanitation crisis and kill this issue from the root. And to do this Helping Brother trust is talking about all possible actions by doing numerous washroom and hygiene awareness campaigns in various parts of rural and urban areas.
