According to Natural News, the overall number of new people who will develop cancer in a given year is expected to nearly double over the next two decades, claims a new report put out by the World Health Organization (WHO). Analysts at the international governing body say the current global rate of about 14 million new cancer cases annually, per 2012 data, will eventually balloon to somewhere in the ballpark of 25 million new cancer cases annually by 2035.
The report comes on the heels of an earlier one out of France that similarly calculated a 75 percent increase in cancer diagnoses by 2030. With the exception of a few minor variances, both reports speculate that, based on current trends, new cases of cancer will skyrocket in the coming years. And the hardest hit will be poor and developing countries, many of which are right now undergoing major changes as a result of Western influence.
As far as the latest WHO report, this expected increase in new cancer cases has already been dubbed an imminent "human disaster," according to the U.K.'s Guardian. Unless the governments and medical systems of the world make a rapid switch to focusing on prevention rather than treatment, WHO says, the devastation that is soon to come, both in terms of unsustainable medical costs and widespread societal loss, will be unprecedented.
"The global cancer burden is increasing and quite markedly, due predominantly to the aging of the populations and population growth," alleges Chris Wild, director of WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer, as quoted by BBC News. "If we look at the cost of treatment of cancers, it is spiraling out of control, even for the high-income countries. Prevention is absolutely critical and it's been somewhat neglected."

Natural News has donated $10,000 to victims of Typhoon Haiyan, the superstorm that devastated the Philippines last year. Tens of thousands of people are believed to have died in the storm.
"The Philippine National Red Cross says its search and rescue efforts in the wake of a deadly typhoon -- feared to have caused a 'very high number of fatalities' -- is being hampered by looters, including some who attacked trucks of food and other relief supplies the agency was shipping from a port city," reports Fox News. The damage was so severe that even getting an accurate count of the fatalities is currently impossible.
According to Fox News, "The rescue operation is ongoing. We expect a very high number of fatalities as well as injured," Interior Secretary Max Roxas said. "All systems, all vestiges of modern living -- communications, power water, all are down. Media is down, so there is no way to communicate with the people in a mass sort of way."
