World Cancer Day Print
Friday, February 04 2011 Hits : 625

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 84 million people will die of cancer between 2005 and 2015 without intervention.

Each year on February 4, WHO supports International Union Against Cancer to promote ways to ease the global burden of cancer. Preventing cancer and raising quality of life for cancer patients are recurring themes.

Join NOEP and others around the world on this day as we promote simple measures to prevent cancer such as:

  • no tobacco use
  • a healthy diet and regular exercise
  • limited alcohol use
  • protection against cancer-causing infections
