Zero tolerance to quackery
 
"I am proud to be a qualified and registered doctor"
 
"I am not a quack who lives on cuts and commissions"

 
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has zero tolerance to quackery. A stringent central anti-quackery law is one of the major demands of the Association in the Dilli Chalo Satyagraha.
 
Anyone who is not qualified or not registered, if practices a system of medicine, should be punishable for a term, which should extend up to ten years and with stringent fine.
 
The recognized and registrable systems of medicine are modern medicine or Allopathy, Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy.
 
All other unrecognized systems of medicine are illegal and cannot be practiced without permission of the institutional ethics committee and a registry under a clinical trial as prescribed in the Drugs and Cosmetics Act.

Diet rich in saturated fats can increase the risk of prostate cancer
 Sedentary lifestyle and obesity are other major contributors
 
New Delhi, 14 June 2017: According to statistics, prostate cancer is the third leading cancer in Indian men after lung and mouth cancers and accounts for 7% of all cancers. Estimates suggest that this incidence is expected to rise rapidly by the year 2020.  While genetic factors have a role to play, unhealthy lifestyle is another important risk factor for the high occurrence of prostate cancer. Unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and smoking are likely to increase the risk of developing prostate cancer. Men with fathers or brothers who had prostate cancer have 90% chances of developing this disease. 
 
Speaking about this, Padma Shri Awardee Dr K K Aggarwal, National President Indian Medical Association (IMA) and President Heart Care Foundation of India (HCFI) and Dr RN Tandon - Honorary Secretary General IMA in a joint statement, said, "An increased migration of rural population to the urban areas, change in lifestyles, increased awareness, and access to medical facility have led to detection of more cases of prostate cancer.
