Hello Lotters, that's right we are currently Number one having most women with BREAST CANCER! are you kidding me? with the rise of 10% of women getting this kind of disease! Some said it's inheritant, work, or environment. it has doubled through the years since 2010. to be honest, it's about the environment. we lack equipment and doctors for this, but now most of them are aware now because of this sickness.. a lot of people die because of this sickness.

I think this is probably Filipinos' lack education and lack of facility for women for early detection. We know for sure that other countries have advanced medical technology and well, many women and families got themselves covered with a good health benefit unlike us.. so most cases get blown up and is not detected early on and so were not prevented...

Hello Chiyosan, Education can be found in the internet, and any one can give basic information to any women who don't know or doesn't have access to internet. but the problem is the medical personel and the facilities regarding to treat more women with this problem.

This is sad news, yes it could be due to a hereditary gene or or a deteriorating environment or both plus it could also be diet and other factors like smoking. Early detection is still the key in cancer treatment and prevention.

Hello Louievill, It's sad when it's hereditary, they should do their best in getting the right kind of medication and prevent from going through an operation like that. I didn't think that cancer would be genetically herediraty, am so glad we didn't have that in the family. Have a nice day.

This is sad news. We should all be involved and be knowledgeable with this illness. This is not something we should be proud of and our government should take actions now. Internet is the easiest and fastest that we can find information about this illness. I'm sure if one of us will be able to get enough info, we can spread it to many social networking website. That's the least I can do to help, and hopefully other's will do the same.

Based on a lot of studies by concerned nutritionists, health practitioners, and others, there are major causes of all illness, including cancer. The number one reason is the food we eat. Gone are the days of long ago when all we eat are all organic products from farms. Now, all or most of the food we eat have chemical additives. Even vegetables and fruits have chemical sprays. Second, is the kind of water and air we breath. Most people in crowded cities have no other option but to drink the purified and distilled water - which doesn't contain any minerals that our body needs. Add to that the unclean air. Third is the kind of lifestyle we have. Gone are the days also, when we are engaged in physical work. Today, most work is done by machines like computers. However, we can minimize sickness through food supplementation through the highest form of herbs - the King of Herbs.

Hello Blessing2u, I miss eating organic products, when i was working with the Non profit Organization that promotes organic, you have no idea how healthy i am. it's sad that organic agriculture are not recognize that much because people rarely support it. I still think we have to make sure that our body would be more physical work out. have a nice day.

I also think it is a very sad news and hope that most people does not get this disease in the future. I hope something can be done to prevent this.

Hello Ajithlal, there's a lot of movements and medical developments that gives cure or vaccination to the early stages. but to those who had worse stages, you just have to be prayerful for a miracle that they will survive and move on to recovery. have a nice day.

This is really sad and scary. Women must be aware of this, on how to prevent and how to detect the illness before it get worse.

hi letranyou mean in the Philippines? thats awful and I know its bad here too. you must lack some important medical staff there maybe. but I wonder whats the most prevalent cause. I think of your country as wonderfully tropical but of course you d o have some typhoons too.I hope your doctors are studying this in regards to the cause.I agree it could be something in your environement too.

Hello hatley, well a friend of mine here responded that the real problem was awareness. therefore, lack of awareness gives people a higher chance of getting cancer because of too much consumption of artificial food products.
