 Current Lifestyle To Be Blamed For Rise in Cancer Cases: Shilpa Shetty
Current lifestyle of most people is hugely responsible for the rise in the number of cancer cases, says actress Shilpa Shetty and has urged the public to follow the right way of living.

"I feel that cancer has become a very common disease. Earlier we used to hear about thyroid and diabetes. Now unfortunately, every second person has cancer. It's pretty scary, and I feel this is also happening because of our lifestyle," the 40-year-old said here Friday at the Cancer Aid and Research Foundation.

"I think there is so much pollution. We are eating so much steroid-infused food and junk food. I think our lifestyle is very deteriorated these days. So I just urge people to start living a healthier lifestyle to enjoy a healthier life," she added.

Shilpa spent some time with children suffering from cancer.
