Global cancer levels warning8th September 2011
The World Cancer Research fund has found that the number of new cancer cases has increased by 20% in under a decade and now stands at 12 million a year.
The WCRF, which released the figures ahead of a United Nations meeting on diseases including cancer, warns that nearly a quarter of those cases are preventable and believes there is a "once in a generation" opportunity to reverse the trend. It calculated that 2.8m new cancers each year are linked to diet, exercise and obesity.
