Europe Business Assembly - Socrates Almanac

Updated on May 6, 2016

The Editorial Board of the Socrates Almanac

The Editorial Board of the Socrates Almanac – an official edition of Europe Business Assembly – received an article of a world-famous oncology specialist Prof. Kew “Always strive to do the greatest good for the greatest number”.

The article tells us about ways of treatment of various diseases, in particularly heart strokes of Black African miners working underground in the South African gold mines and cancer of the liver of sub-Saharan Black African population. Here is the brief content of the article.

The gold-bearing reef in South Africa is situated at a great depth below ground level, and the work areas in which the mining of the gold-bearing ore was taking place where, as a result of the adiabatic compression of air at this depth, accordingly very hot. Obviously, these work areas have to be rendered as well-ventilated and as cool as possible by ventilation with cold air. In addition, the miners have to be fully acclimatized to working in the heat before they commence work in the ultra-deep level stopes.

Cancer of the liver (hepatocellular carcinoma) is the sixth most common cancer in humans worldwide, the fifth in males and the seventh in females. It accounts for 90 to 95% of the primary malignant tumors of the liver in the sub-Saharan Black African, with age-standardized incidence rates of between 19.2 and 28.4 per 100,000 persons per year.

The Black citizens of those sub-Saharan African countries with comprehensive and efficient hepatitis B virus vaccination programs in place for some years can now look forward to the time that the consequences of chronic infection with this virus, and particularly hepatocellular carcinoma, will no longer occur. In regard to the belief that we should “ALWAYS STRIVE TO DO THE GREATEST GOOD FOR THE GREATEST NUMBER”, this goal will eventually have been accomplished in respect to the development of hepatocellular carcinoma in those countries in which the hepatitis B virus vaccination program was introduced efficiently and comprehensively. Given the frequency which this tumor occurs at this time and its devastating consequences, this will be a most welcome development. Sadly, at the present time, this does not apply to the Black population of South Africa.

We are very grateful to professor for cooperation!
