Moolchand observed World Cancer Day with the noted celebrities of cinema, literature and the few classical maestros to promote awareness for Cancer disease which is related to the amount of stress we take in today's lifestyle

  • (1888PressRelease) February 06, 2012 - A little amount of stress is good as it gives us a feeling of competition and innovation; but chronic stress can increase the risk of diseases such as depression, heart disease and even cancer.

    "It has been noticed that the incidence of cancer is on the rise and most of it could be related to the changing life style in the Indian society. The women in today's world are becoming more and more career oriented and paying less interest to womanhood. Late marriages and child bearing, not breast feeding the baby puts women at a higher risk of developing breast cancer. On top of this, increasing amount of work related stress and improper food habits makes your body susceptible for developing cancer" says Padmashri and Dr. B C Roy National Awardee Dr. K K Aggarwal, Consultant, Medicine and Cardiology, Moolchand Heart Hospital, New Delhi.

    "Daily stress affects the immune system of the body and reduces the capacity to fight against the sexually transmitted diseases and thus can cause cancer in them. Also some environmental and lifestyle factors like diet deficiency in antioxidants, smoking, excess intake of alcohol, lack of exercise, etc. are also associated with increased risk of cancer" says the noted cinestar, classical dancer and MP, Dr. Vaijayanti Mala Bali who came to Moolchand Medcity on World Cancer Day to promote awareness for lifestyle diseases and encourage women to be happy from within. "This helps in staying them disease free for long by doing light exercises, say dancing and walking on regular basis" she added.

    Present on the occasion at Moolchand, Mr. Jwala Prasad, noted Music Director, Ms. Suman Devgan, noted Singer, Ms. Rekha Gupta, noted Poetry Writer (mother of cinestar Isha Gupta), Ms. Roshni Geeta Thakur, noted Writer and Mr. Asrat, noted Kathak Dancer, jointly stated the slogan, "Be happy and stress free to stay away from lifestyle diseases for long".
