Cancer in various parts of the world

Cancer in various parts of the world

Lung cancer, due mainly to widespread use of tobacco, is the most common cancer in the world. Beyond that, the situation varies immensely between developed and developing countries. In North American, Europe, and Australia, hormone-related cancers (especially breast and prostate, but also colon and rectum) are most common. They meaty diets in these areas not only contribute carcinogens that can start the cancer process; as we'll see shortly, they also increase the production of hormones that can be a driving force behind these cancers. These fatty diets also promote obesity, increasing risk of uterine and breast cancers. Modern diets area also dangerously low in fiber (plant roughage), and the result is an alarmingly high rate of colon cancer.
