  1. Tobaccos has been one of the major causes of the many cancer types and other diseases that we have right now. I think, we should all learn from what we have seen from people who died due to tobacco smoking. Many holistic cancer treatment centers advises many patients and their families to quit and stop the same. To have a better health.

The equipments in these heart hospitals are the latest in the world and the facilities match the five star hotel standards. Apollo Hospital Chennai has recently installed Cyberknife Technology which is the most advanced technology for treating cancer in the world.

  3. Another serious problem here would be that the science does not seem to be reaching many people in public places health government departments and otherwise. I am about prepared to leave Twitter basically hear yet another unproven claim. Yes, we public health people are the worst culprits. We won't research and rather depend on which the relaxation from the pack says. It's frustrating, but much more, it's embarrassing whenever you discover you have been spewing exactly the same nonsense as everybody else.
