Globally, cancer is increasingly becoming an urgent health issue. By 2030, it is expected that the worldwide cancer burden will grow by nearly 70% due to population growth and aging, with more than two-thirds of cancer deaths occurring in low- and middle-income countries [1,2]. In 2008, nearly 7.6 million people worldwide died from cancer. The reasons for global emergence of cancer as a challenge are only partly known. Changing environment, changing lifestyle, food habits, addictions and infectious agents may be deemed contributory [1,2].
