Over 1.5 m Cancer Cases World-Wide Caused due to Treatable Infections

IAS News 14 May 2012 | 0 Comments

In a startling discovery made by researchers at the International Agency for Research on Cancer in France has found that around 2 million cancer cases all over the world are caused due to various treatable and preventable infections. The study also found that developing countries have a higher incidence of these infection related cancers than developed nations.
“16% of all cancers diagnosed in 2008 were infection-related. Key cancer-causing infectious agents include human papillomavirus (HPV), the gastric bug Helicobacter pylori and the hepatitis B (HBV) and C viruses. These four were together believed to be responsible for 1.9 million cases of cancer, mostly gastric, liver and cervical cancers.”
The review of this discovery is published in the Lancet Oncology Journal; you can read an article on the finding by BBC click here.
In light of this it’s more important than ever to kill off infections and with the growing resistance to antibiotics we think that products like our own First Line will be essential in the near future.
