Cancer cases to double by 2030

Filed under:

We need a cure, and quick. According to the latest numbers at the rate it's going cancer diagnoses will double by the year 2030.

Why this sudden growth expected in upcoming years? Experts blame a combination of factors, including population growth, longer life expectancy, and more people smoking in the developing world. And in those poorer countries is where the increases in cancer diagnosis is expected. It seems that although we're working harder in the developed world to lead healthy lifestyles, habits like smoking are on the rise elsewhere.
