The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued dire new predictions about the spread of cancer throughout the world that prove the Western model of medicine to be a complete failure. Within the next 10 years, the public health arm of the United Nations claims, cancer rates will increase by more than 25 percent, with most of this growth expected to occur in developing countries that have been heavily infiltrated by Western influences.
By 2025, WHO claims, the annual number of new cancer diagnoses is expected to increase by roughly 37 percent, rising from a current annual total of about 14.1 million people to a shocking 19.3 million people. The number of cancer patients that will end up dying from the disease or its corresponding treatment is also expected to rise by about 39 percent, jumping from a current total of about 8.2 million people annually to 11.4 million people.
Specifically in the U.S., the annual number of new cancer cases is expected to increase at a slightly lesser rate than that of the world at large. According to the data, about 1.6 million people are added to the ranks of cancer patients every year in the U.S., a number that is expected to rise by about 31 percent to 2.09 million people annually in 2025. However, cancer deaths are predicted to increase by about 38 percent during the same time period, nearly matching the predicted global increase.
“In most developed countries, cancer is the second largest cause of death after cardiovascular disease, and epidemiological evidence points to this trend emerging in the less developed world,” reads a Q&A section about cancer on the WHO website. “This is particularly true in countries in ‘transition’ or middle-income countries, such as in South America and Asia. Already more than half of all cancer cases occur in developing countries.”
