Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Ameya Chandavarkar, Executive Director FDC Ltd. said “We at Enerzal believe that a healthier India is a stronger and more productive India, and the best way to inculcate a culture of health and fitness is through sport. As a brand we have been ever-present in India’s sporting tapestry with partnerships with leading sport teams and athletes. However, we realised that today our own healthcare providers are becoming increasingly stressed and unfit due to a lack of recreational activities and opportunities to play sport. We launched the Enerzal Doctors’ Badminton Championships to raise awareness amongst doctors and provide a platform for them to play sport. And as Doctors serve as role models to many, they will effectively lead by example by playing badminton and sharing stories of their sporting adventures with their families, friends and patients” Read more

Approximately 80% of all prostate cancer cases in Gujarat are diagnosed at advanced stages, making the disease difficult to treat.  Doctors in the state are concerned about the rising trend. More commonly affecting men, the cancer has over 1.8 million victims worldwide. Factors affecting increase incidence of prostate cancer vary from increase in stress levels to inactive sexuality in men.

One of the astonishing reasons pointed out through research is the fact that less than 6 hours of sleep doubles the risk of prostate cancer in men increasing the risk to 55%. According to the Indian Cancer Registry, the statistics of prostate cancer have been estimated to increase by 220% by 2020. In addition to increasing physical inactivity and consumption of high trans-fat food, urban lifestyle with its hectic schedules and stress is increasing risk of cancer cases in the state.

“The cancer is responsible for the swelling of the gland near the prostate causing difficulty in urinating. It is common to witness the disease occurring in older population. But we are also seeing the trends coming in for younger population who are less than 40. This is troublesome as our lives have rapidly changed. Due to lack of time and perhaps resources, we often cannot afford to sleep and eat properly. While the repercussions of a bad diet are known, lack of sleep can cause reduced melatonin levels responsible for maintain the sleep cycle. Due to this, the body cannot prevent cancerous growth of the cells”, says Dr. Dhaval Rajde, Surgical Oncologist, Columbia Asia Hospital, Ahmedabad. Read more
