Breast cancer deaths down12th August 2011
Figures have shown that breast cancer deaths have been falling dramatically across Europe since 1989, though doctors cannot explain why.
In Northern Ireland, deaths have fallen by 29%, in the Netherlands by 25%, in Belgium by 20% and by 24% in Norway. But it appears that breast screening programmes designed to detect early signs of the disease have had little to do with the reduction, according to a report in the British Medical Journal. Some of the countries that have seen reductions do not have full screening programmes.
