Cancer is the Disease of the Wealthy

In London, in 1973 Srila Prabhupada compared the malaria of India with the Cancer of the West. Here are some relevant excerpts from the talk: “In India, there are malaria or some disease. In your country there is cancer. Rich disease. You are rich men. That disease is also very rich. India, poverty-stricken, they suffer only a little malaria. That’s all. Oh, you are rich. You have got cancer. There is no cure. This is actually to be studied.”
