Cancer cases worldwide to jump to 22 million

22 Million New Cases of Cancer Every Year for Next Two Decades?

LONDON (AP) - The World Health Organization's cancer agency warns there will be 22 million new cases of cancer every year within the next two decades.

Monday's report from the International Agency for Research on Cancer estimated in 2012 there were 14 million new cases but predicted that figure would jump significantly due to global aging and the spread of cancers to developing countries. The Lyon-based cancer arm of the WHO said more than 60 percent of the world's cancer cases are in Africa, Asia, Central and South America.

In 2012, IARC said the top cancer killers were those of the lung, liver and stomach. The agency called for countries to consider stronger legislation to encourage healthier lifestyles, including measures to tackle consumption of alcohol and sugary drinks.

Because life expancy was only 40 in 1933 FDR installed social security as just another tax and felt hardly anyone would go on it. By 1941 life expectancy was only 41 and by 1957 it had reached age 65. A few years ago life expancy reached 78 but is now expected to drastically drop. The main facter is the popularity of tatoos and having carcinogenic dyes injected into the skin that leach into the blood stream over the years. I had a friend recently pass away from cancer that was caused by tatoos. As this generation of people sporting tatoos and body piercings reach their forties cancer rates are expected to over whelm the system. Air polution has nothing to do with it. It is what you smoke, eat or inject into your skin. If you read; "Two Years Before The Mast," a book about clipper ships in the mid 1800's, you will learn that although the port of Los Angeles had a population of a few hundred mixed breeds the whole area had smog that the indians called "devil smoke." The deforestation of New England by early settlers actually cleared the air and when farmers abandoned the area in the late 1800's and moved out to the western plains, New England became reforested and the air is now no where as clean as it use to be.. yes trees polute!! Don't listen to the libs, all they want to do is to tax you to death.

Why are we surprised when the FDA allows poison in our foods, the same agency that controls our drugs. There will never be a cure!

Funny that there no mention of the radiation in the air and sea from the Japan nuclear disaster, that has hit the California coast. Accounts that the Pacific ocean is almost dead, 100 % of the ocean floor is full of dead sealife . Just think of the air contamination sweeping accross out nation. The media will never tell the truth, to prevent Californians to flee the West coast. I avoid eating anything from that area. I cannot believe the silence to keep Americans from learning the truth.

Inflammation causes cancer. Just drink a glass of water----every hour----while you are awake. You'll be fine. Tap water is the best. Chlorine kills parasites.

WAKE UP PEOPLE, THERE ARE SO MANY NEW DRUGS ON THE MARKET THAT THE FDA WANTS EVERYONE TO TAKE FOR PAIN OR ARTHRITIS, FIBROMIALGIA, ETC & THEY CAUSE CANCER, SOMETIMES THEY TRY TO CURE A DISEASE WITH ALL THIS CRAP & ITS CAUSING THE CANCER. LOOK AT THE TV AD'S THE DRUG COMPANIES ARE MAKING BIG MONEY AT THE RISK OF OUR HEALTH & THE FDA ALLOWS THIS?? WHERES THE LOGIC IN THIS. PEOPLE NEED TO START READING THE INFORMATION & SIDE AFFECTS THESE DRUGS CAUSE & REFUSE TO TAKE THEM. ONCE YOU GET THIS STUFF IN YOUR BODY & RUIN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM WHATS LEFT? IT CAN TAKE YEARS TO REBUILD YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM. THE DRUG COMPANIES MAKE BIG MONEY AND DON'T CARE HOW MUCH HARM THEY CAUSE SINCE BY THE TIME YOU SUE THEM IF YOU CAN? YOUR PRETTY MUCH ON YOUR WAY OUT.

Cancer is big business, even for the ACS. Why would they want to find a cure. Look at all the crap in foods and drinks that are linked to causing cancer, yet they are still allowed to be added. Payoffs, i'm sure. Can you say "GMOs".

It's all part of the grand plan. Feed the world with cancer causing man manipulated fats and sugars and bingo, we've got a multibillion dollar business of big pharmacuticals providing "health care". Wake up people, they just want to suck your retirement dry at the end of your life, get you off the "Social" payroll, and make big profits in the mean time!

Nothing is this article suggests that maybe, just maybe, the huge spurt in world population growth has anything to do with the increases presence of cancer cases......or the 35,000.,000 illegals that now colonize the United States and their new found access to the best health care system in the world, but hey, let's blame everyone

Hey Mr. Money,

This is 22 mil new cases Globally, not just the US. And, we sure as hell do NOT have the best health care system in the world--far from it.

Everybody has cholesterol and diabetes and everything is called cancer but the claim that new technologies and new drugs has helped people to live healthier is shaky at best.,
Why aren't they more healthy people? one wouldn't need to go back to the doc's so often if they were so healthy. ... so many are buying into that, it's very puzzling..
Although many people do have cancer it has been known to be exaggerated, careful people, it's not because doctor's have many degrees that they're always right..
The medical side has been taken over by the business side.
