Decoding the medical world

BlabberCat: “A medical event article on a lifestyle blog! Good idea?”

Rasshi: “Why not? Why wouldn’t people want to know about or hear more from those whom we entrust our lives with?”

BlabberCat’s health guest blogger Rasshi Saraogi, of Healync Solution LLP, reports from IFHNOS (International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies) organised Dr. Alok Thakkar Professor, Head and Neck Oncolgy, from AIIMS, New Delhi from the 12th – 15th of October. It is a world tour the medical fraternity of oral cancer founded the international leader Dr. Jatin P. Shah, Chair of Head and Neck Cancer, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA. We had our honorable Union Health Minister Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda inaugurate the conglomeration in New Delhi. He announced the grand plan of the government to battle cancer through various specialised hospital projects and national cancer organizations in metropolitan cities. It was no small feat to have such accomplished names in our country under one roof.

A wide variety of topics were discussed and here are some snippets:

  • Have you ever been in a situation where you questioned whether a surgery is necessary?
  • Did you know that oral cancer is not genetic but acquired due to lifestyle and that people who refuse to change their lethal habits suffer from a defeatist attitude?
  • Is there is a magical drug that can cure cancer?

Dr. Jatin P. Shah (in the pic above) avoids all the shutterbugs waiting for a photo-op to answer these general queries for the benefit of all. (Read More on interview with Dr Jatin Shah )

  • Every third person is detected with thyroid cancer today but did you know most of them are not considered for treatment because these are harmless? Surprising right!

  • Did we know there are actually technologies and nutritional modalities through which these treatments can be less punishing!
