Today Cancer is the Deadliest Killer

According to a UN Report Cancer today has become the number one killer. More so, related to their work place. Cancer has become more of an occupational Hazard// with millions of people running the risk of catching the disease from their place of work. Inhaling asbestos fibers and second hand smoker are the major causes of lung cancer according to a WHO reports. Thousands develop leukemia from exposure to benzene from the dye, drugs, pesticides and other related industries using this product and these accounts for more than 90,000 deaths each year.

But the heart health benefits are seen far more quickly, “If you stop smoking, you benefit from that for heart disease within three to five years - your risk comes down to that of a non-smoker,” he said. “Whereas if you stop smoking, it takes about 20 years before your risk of lung cancer drops down to that of the non-smoking population.”
