Various surveys showed that one in every five adult in the State would be suffering from one or the other form cancer in the next five years and it was high time Keralites realised this health threat from within and chalked out meaningful ways to address the problem, former Agriculture Minister, Mullakkara Ratnakaran, MLA, has said.

Kerala is fast turning into the ‘cancer capital’ of the country, he added. Mr. Ratnakaran was releasing the Malayalam book, Nattellu, written by the renowned Spine Surgeon, Suresh S. Pillai, on spinal disorders and remedial measures, brought out by the Kerala Language Institute, at a function held at Mavelikkara on Monday.

Mr. Ratnakaran said a total deviation from their traditional agrarian lifestyle and food habits was what led the modern generation to this state of affairs, making the State home for all types of diseases.
