Food For Thought

Worldwide cancer survival rates are far higher than here in India. Why is this? The prime reason is malnutrition due to socio-economic constraints. To fight any disease, a body needs its immune system to have optimum power. This becomes even more vital when the fight is against a foe as strong as cancer and a treatment as harsh as chemotherapy. And good nutrition is the prime weapon that can keep a child’s cancer-fighting arsenal at full force.

The scary numbers

The scary numbers

  • 50,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in India. Only 22% of these even make it to the hospital for treatment.
  • Only 2 out of 10 children survive, compared to worldwide survival rates of 8 out of 10.
  • 4 out of 10 children being treated lose the fight because of malnutrition.
  • Children without access to proper nutrition are 5 times more likely to die from cancer, due to chemotherapy intolerance causing a refusal or abandonment of treatment.
