World Cancer Day
Today, Monday the 4th of February 2019, is World Cancer Day! Cancer is the second-leading cause of mortality worldwide with around 70% of these deaths occurring in developing countries. Currently 9.6 million people every year die from cancer and experts predict that this number will rise to 13 million by the year 2030. Importantly one third of all cancer cases can be prevented with another third deemed curable if appropriate treatment and early detection are achieved.
