Cancer to kill 5.5 mn women yearly by 2030: report

By AFP 1 November 2016

Cancer will kill 5.5 million women -- about the population of Denmark -- every year by 2030, a near 60-percent increase in less than two decades, a report said Tuesday.

As the global population grows and ages, the highest toll will be among women in poor and middle-income countries, it said, and much of it from cancers which are largely preventable.
