SHOCKING! More Than Two Million Nigerians Have Cancer



The Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria on Saturday said that Nigeria has over two million recorded cases of cancer with 100, 000 new cases annually.
The association made this known in a communique issued by its President, Alhaji Toyosi Raheem, at the end of its 52nd Annual Scientific Conference and workshop in Jalingo.

Raheem attributed the high rate of tumour and cancer in the country to a shift from the consumption of natural to artificial food and lack of regular physical exercise by citizens.

He said that indiscriminate, unregulated and overuse of herbicides and insecticides on the farms also contribute to development of tumours and cancer in humans.

He commended the Federal Government for the establishment of National Cancer and National Cancer Control Programme.

He said, “We call on the Federal Government to fully equip the cancer centre and programme it has established with adequate human and infrastructural resources.

The association’s scientific conference, which began on Tuesday, Oct. 4 ended on Friday, Oct. 7.
