Cancer cases have quadrupled in the country during the last decade and are likely to further increase, said Mohammadreza Qavam Nasiri, head of Iranian Radiotherapy Oncology Society.  “Many kinds of cancers are caused partially due to poor dietary habits including consumption of junk food, sausages and processed foods and food products with synthetic aroma chemicals like some kinds of tea,” Alef News Agency quoted him as saying.
