Cancer in 2030

Reuters reports ...

U.N. report: 13 million around world will die each year, twice those in 2008

LONDON - Cancer will kill more than 13.2 million people a year by 2030, almost double the number who died from the disease in 2008, the United Nations' cancer research agency said on Tuesday.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) also said that almost 21.4 million new cases of the disease will be diagnosed annually in 2030.

Launching a new database on global incidence of cancer in 2008, the latest year for which figures are available, the IARC said the burden of cancer was shifting from wealthier to poorer nations.

You know I have often wondered about this. So many of us make donations or contribute in other much money has been raised for Cancer.....why are we not closer to a cure? What else can we do even? I really don't know how to hate but the closest I have come to it is hating Cancer, it has upset and ruined so many lives of the people I love....Hugs

I don't understand why there is no cure either Bernie. It also feels like more people are getting a Cancer of some sort, in the media we hear about it more and in our own experience the last few years three family members were diagnosed with it. I must admit Daria I now only read your blog. I was reading a few others but keep yours closer.
