Asia’s cancer rates to spike by 2020

 


via AP:

The number of cancer cases in Asia is set to rise dramatically by 2020 due largely to longer life spans and changing lifestyles, threatening a health crisis as poorer countries in the region struggle to afford care.

A fast-growing population coupled with people living longer and undergoing extreme changes to diet and lifestyle will place a major burden on developing countries that cannot afford screening, vaccines and expensive treatment, experts said at the start of a two-day conference in Singapore.

Happy World Toilet Day!

 


via IOL:

Singapore - Cut-price toilet paper, brushes and detergent are on sale to help promote clean restrooms as part of World Toilet Day on Sunday, the campaign organiser said on Saturday.

It is the fifth annual World Toilet Day, organised by the Singapore-based non-profit World Toilet Organisation (WTO), which lobbies for better toilet standards in developed and developing countries.

“We started in a small way but it is growing and growing,” WTO founder Jack Sim told AFP.

“This year we have discounts from supermarkets.” He said Singapore’s NTUC FairPrice and stores in Malaysia would mark the event by selling discounted toilet cleaning items over the following week.

Yeeay! Cheap toilet cleaning items the week ahead!
