According to Mr K V Ravindra, CEO, Celon Laboratories Ltd., there has been an alarming rise in the incidence of Cancer in our country in the last decade. The cancer awareness campaigns by the Government and medical professionals have been largely restricted to the elite and the educated. The poorer sections of the society who don't have access to modern medicine are as much prone to cancer but are hopelessly ill-informed about it.
