Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Bhd paid out more than RM10 million in critical illness claims last year, its Chief Operating Officer Stefan Ritz said.
In a statement yesterday, he said 50 per cent of these claims were contributed by cancer followed by heart disease and stroke.
"For cancer, breast cancer is on the rise, being the most claimed cancer followed by colon cancer and bronchus and lung cancer with more women being affected.
"We also find that people between the ages of 30 and 39 make more claims for critical illness, which identifies that an illness doesn't come with age, so taking precautions and detecting early is important for everyone," Ritz said.
The company receives more than 600 claims requests a day. -

Petaling Jaya (The Star/ANN) - Although the haze seemed to have cleared up, the fight against land clearing and peatland fires is not over, said the chief of an environment organisation.Global Environment Centre director Faizah Parish expects the haze to worsen as the current drought continues until September."The main source of the haze are large scale forest and peatland fires in Riau, Indonesia, and to a lesser extent, Selangor."The fires are ongoing but at the moment, the winds are not blowing directly to Malaysia.
But we anticipate the haze to be back in a few weeks," he said here yesterday.Faizah stressed that to stop the haze, "we have to stop the fires".He urged Malaysians and the government to help by patrolling regularly, especially in Selangor, where there were regular peatland fires and report any land clearing activity.He added that the non-governmental movement had launched the Stop the Haze Campaign."We need 30 to 40 volunteers to patrol certain areas of Selangor that had incidents of peatland fires."We hope the volunteers are from areas near the locations such as Raja Musa Forest Reserve, KLIA, and Johan Setia in Klang," he said.
He added that they also needed about 20 volunteers to spread awareness on how haze occurs and how to prevent it.Faizah hopes the public and Government would contribute funds to the organisation to help with the patrolling of fire-prone peatlands as well as purchase of equipment and supplies to support community fire prevention and control teams."The funds will also go to monitoring activities of forest and oil palm plantations and promoting zero burning," he said.

Ways to improve health and weight to achieve a healthy lifestyle
There are different ways through which a person can remain fit and people make an effort to stay healthy. A person has the ability to take care of damage their own health because they are responsible for what they consume and what they avoid. It is for this reason that a person needs to ensure that they follow a healthy diet and exercise accordingly to remain health. The weight of the person directly affects their health. This can be seen from the fact that there is a substantial reduction in the risk of heart and other diseases when a person reduces their weight by only 10%. If people suffer from overweight, they should try to do exercise which involve walking and weight-bearing ones as well. In this way, they can avoid problems such as skin disorders, psychological and emotional trauma, blood pressure, diabetes, asthma and other issues. A healthy lifestyle can be maintained in the long run as well.

PETALING JAYA: The wind is blowing the haze up north towards Malacca, Selangor, Negri Sembilan, Perak and Penang and causing worsening air quality.
The Department of Environment (DOE) said that this north-blowing wind was variable while a southwesterly wind, which was carrying thick haze from Riau, continued to blow towards the middle and south of the west and the east coasts of the peninsula.
The DOE said the haze, which initially blanketed the southern peninsula, had moved towards the north.
“At the same time, the haze has reached the east coast states of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan,” it said in a statement yesterday.
The DOE said this was according to the map released by the Asean Specialised Meteorological Centre on Sunday.
The DOE said that the centre also reported that the number of hotspots in Indonesia had increased from 118 on Saturday to 227 on Sunday.
It was reported that Muar and Ledang districts in Johor were under a “haze emergency” after the Air Pollutant Index readings surged over 700 in these areas on Sunday, but dropped to 125 yesterday.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced that the emergency declared for Muar and Ledang was over following an improvement in air quality.

The haze season is back, and you are feeling the effects of it.
Short of moving to a foreign country with pristine air until the wind blows all the smog away, it is difficult to completely escape the haze. However, there are ways to reduce your discomfort and alleviate your symptoms. Here are some of them.
There is a growing emphasis on the importance of healthcare among the public. Nowadays, patients seek more affordable healthcare treatment, prefer shorter waiting times and demand high quality services and standards from their healthcare service providers. To meet their expectations, patients are now willing to travel to other countries to receive treatment that also give them value for money. Taking into account all these considerations, Malaysia is now considered a preferred destination when it comes to healthcare services or medical treatment.
