Must read

Former Vice President of India M Venkaiah Naidu unveiled a book titled ‘Live For A Legacy’, a perspective of a Cancer Surgeon Dr Chinnababu Sunkavalli at a function held here on Wednesday.  The book was written as narrated to Arun Tiwari.
Early detection, daily exercise and eating good food are important for a healthy body and mind.  He told doctors to take time out on weekends and travel to neighbourhood and rural areas to create awareness about cancer and healthy lifestyles.  People will listen to doctors.
Cancer is not a death sentence anymore. With the latest technology, we need not worry.   There are the latest technologies, competent doctors and hospitals available to treat cancer, he said.
He stressed healthy eating habits.  Nowadays kitchens have become inactive and people prefer instant food. If you eat instant food, you will get constant diseases, he said. He stressed eating indigenous food.
“I am retired but not yet tired. I prefer going to meetings to get inspired,” Venkaiah Naidu added.
“We live to leave and what we leave behind will live on in the hearts of those whom we touch with our living. This is as exciting as fearful. For India to have better cancer survival rates we all need to collectively work to prevent and detect early,” said Dr Chinnababu, in his opening remarks.
Death by Cancer has reduced by 33% in Western countries due to early detection, awareness and good technologies and medication, Dr Chinnababu said.
Prof Arun Tiwari, the co-author, said, “Fformer President Dr Abdul Kalam advised him to write a book every year, which I never thought I would do, but it is happening now. This is my 25th book.  He advised people to follow my elders’ advice.  We become what we are because of our teachers.”
The book provides the science behind the evolution of cancer over 100 years and leaves hope and optimism. It talks about options available for treatment and ways to contain it.  The WHO set the Goal of Cervical Cancer Elimination by 2030 to vaccinate 90% of girls by 15 years of age against the HPV and 190 countries are signatories to the declaration.  One chapter in the book dealt with HPV Vaccine human papillomavirus.
