Cancer Cannot Be Ignored

As for a Chinese exchange student, I should say something about the relationship between U.S. and China. But there is something more important for us, the people all over the world should to pay more attention about it–Cancer. Not only because one of four patient who stay in the hospital are because of cancer, but also one of four of them will die. Currently, 7.6 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which, 4 million people die prematurely (aged 30 to 69 years).

There are many reason coursed cancer, like carcinogenic food, air pollution, water pollution, electromagnetic radiation etc. So we have two choose: find a solution to treatment for cancer, or improve our environment and safety our food and water.  

As for the first way, what I already known is many scientists are working on find the solution to treatment cancer or let them live more longer. Surgery is the most common way to treatment cancer, but as you know, it can just use for the initial state. And it’s not success every time. What we can do is to support them, those who are working on finding the solution and saving patient’s people. Support them on the both materially and mentally way. Let them have enough source to do the most valuable thing. And all over the world is except for the result.

As for the second way, I want say that what our created should deal with ourselves. People often say, we created our own demons, I totally agree with that. We created our own pollution we need spend our own time and money fix it, or one day when you suffered by your own demons you will know that how terrible it is.

So please do something for cancer, for ourselves.
