Can Lack Of Sleep Cause Cancer? Take This Quiz To Find Out Facts You Didn’t Know!

This #WorldCancerDay, find out how well you know the disease and spread the information. As they say, when it comes to cancer, knowledge is power!

In 2018, cancer took more than seven lakh lives in India. These are excluding the two million more who continue to live and suffer from the deadly disease. According to the estimates by the Indian Council Medical Research (ICMR), the death toll is expected to rise to 8.8 lakh by 2020.

This rise is not a surprise, because it has been steadily growing over the years, bolstered by the lack of awareness, say experts. As they say, despite its potential for major harm, cancer is not deadly if detected at an early stage.

So, this World Cancer Day, The Better India decided to take an extra step and spread awareness about cancer, its symptoms, and how it can be overcome. Check out the quiz video below.
