Cancer will be the top killer in the USA unless change happens
The global incidence of cancer is expected to increase from 12.8 million in 2008 to 22.2 million in 2030.
From my own long term personal research, it will be far higher than this.
In 2004 the International Diabetes federation predicted that there would be 250 million diabetics by 2020.
There were actually 366 million by 2010.
This is 100 million MORE people, 10 years earlier than predicted.
“The rise in cancer prevalence is tied to tobacco use, obesity, diet and a lack of physical activity. Half of cancer deaths are related to these preventable causes. Modifying personal behaviors to adopt a healthier lifestyle that eliminates or reduces these risks, where possible, could therefore, have a remarkable impact on our nation’s burden of cancer”

- Cancer will soon surpass heart disease as the Number One disease-related killer in the U.S., and I suspect the world.
- Cancer kills one in every four disease-related deaths in the U.S.
- More than 1.6 million Americans will receive a cancer diagnosis this year.
- More than 580,000 Americans are expected to die from cancer.
