Cancer is the second most fatal disease faced by Indians and it takes the lives of around 2.5 million people annually. Around 70% of the cases have been treated but survival rates remain diminished. Indian context dictates that the most prominent cancers have been lung cancer, breast cancer, stomach and cervical cancer and are attributed to poor to moderate living conditions, improper dietary and lifestyle choices, inadequate medical facilities and pollution. Hence, India faces a grave public health concern in the form of cancer with growing pollution and attitudinal shifts in the population.
