The Facts about Childhood Cancer
Childhood cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death among children and adolescents (ages 1 to 19 years) in the United States, although cancer among children is rare. The causes of childhood cancer are not well understood. Survival rates for most childhood cancers vary widely across cancer types.
Each year, nearly 100,000 children under 15 die from cancer worldwide. That's almost 250 children a day – a startling statistic given that about 80 percent of childhood cancers are potentially curable with existing treatments. Too many children are dying from cancer.
This year about 564,800 Americans are expected to die of cancer—more than 1,500 people a day. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease. One of every four deaths in the US is from cancer. Since 1990, there have been approximately 5 million cancer deaths.
Earth Approved Co. (www.earthapproved.org) has turned to kickstarter to crowd-fund the completion of one of its cancer/autism combating initiatives – ‘the Earth Approved App’, an app that will allow users to safe scan and identify harmful products and food, simply by scanning the UPC of the product.
The rate of cancer and autism mortality related cases have been on the rise in past two decades. Moreover, research as proven that many of these cases can be traced to the consumption of foods and products that contain toxic substances that are being used in production and preservation of these products.
