Cancer and Treatment

In 2012, 14 million people were affected with cancer, making it one of the leading causes of death in the world. More cases are reported for men (53 percent) than women.

Due to changing lifestyles, this figure is expected to climb to 24 million in 2035. Scientific studies have shown that only 5 to 10 percent of cases are genetic, while 30 to 35 percent are due to diet and 30 percent can be attributed solely to smoking.
