Cancer incidence in perspective
Increase of incidence of cancer goes hand in hand with an ageing population. The hard facts aka numbers help one put in perspective how the dice is loaded. I have often across articles which suggest that 1 in 4 of us will have cancer in our lifetimes. At the personal level I think I have too many friends who have had a brush with cancer. On the other hand cancer among my relatives seem much rarer. I am not even thinking about my cousins but uncles and aunties.
