China Soars to Top of World Cancer Report

Cassie Ryan  |  Epoch Times
Of 14 million new cancer cases documented globally in 2012, 3.07 million or 21.8 percent were in China, according to the World Health Organization’s latest “World Cancer Report.”
The publication–produced every five years by the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)–recorded a total of 8.2 million deaths from cancer in 2012, with around 2.2 million or 26.9 percent in China.
China also had the highest rates of new cases and deaths from cancers of the lung (over 33 percent), stomach (over 40 percent), liver (around 50 percent), and esophagus (around 50 percent), the South China Morning Post reported.
The report noted that developing countries tended to be the worst affected, and that contributing factors were the limited resources available for proper diagnosis and treatment.
New cancer cases are predicted to reach 21.6 million globally by 2030, an increase of half compared with 14 million in 2012.
