Cancer Incidence May Surge 75% by 2030, Lancet Says

The global incidence of cancer may rise more than 75 percent by 2030, led by developing countries, according to research published today in the Lancet journal.

The number of people with cancer in 2030 may rise to 22.2 million, or 0.3 percent of the global population, from 12.7 million in 2008, according to research led by Freddie Bray of the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, France. The projection is based on the United Nations’s population forecast, the IARC’s database tracking cancer incidence in 184 countries and expected increases in the rates of colorectal, female breast, prostate and, in high-income countries, lung cancer in women.

While improving living standards in lower-income countries may lead to a decrease in infection-related cancers such as cervical and stomach cancer, that may be offset by a surge in the types of cancer associated with smoking, obesity and diet which currently affect mainly richer countries. Poor countries, as measured by the UN’s Human Development Index, may see a doubling in the incidence of cancer to 490,000 in 2030 from 2008, according to the study.

“This study underscores the diversity of cancer as a worldwide occurrence and the extent to which the disease patterns differ from country to country,” the authors said in the article. Targeted interventions are needed to “effectively control the prevalence of lifestyle factors including tobacco avoidance and cessation of smoking, a reduction in alcohol consumption and obesity, and the promotion of increased levels of physical activity.”

The richest countries currently bear much of the cancer burden, with almost 40 percent of the global incidence occurring in these countries, while having only 15 percent of the world’s population. The most commonly diagnosed cancers in these areas are colorectal, lung, female breast, prostate and stomach.

    What did you expect was going to happen after Fukushima meltdowns and the planned population reduction of the Club of Rome? You thought cancer was bad already with almost everyone you know coming down with it like the flu? Expect it to get far worse. Why not look into the ‘Apocalypse Equation’ thesis written by Audrey Tomason the current Director for Counter-Terrorism to understand more.

    How do these cretins really know what is expected in the future? They create and plan the future to their agendas and social engineering. Why is there not a massive outcry of panic over the current levels of cancer? Simply because its been planned this way and its expected, nothing surprising and natural about it in the slightest. Why do you think the Department of Energy is so closely tied to the medical mafia these days? Theres more to the background radiation levels and future radiation events. They want you focusing more on the chemicals rather than radiation. This is why the current thyroid symptoms are hidden away as a mystery or chemicals at best.

    The current thyroid problems are a combination of radiation especially since Chernobyl and the eating of unfermented soy, msg, aspartame and rapeseed oil. I’ve just given you a big hint to why we have the current obesity epidemic which is falsely attributed to sugar intake as a cover-up. Vets are puzzled why do many cats are hyperthyroid and so many dogs are hypothyroid over the last twenty years. Well take a look at the timing after Chernobyl and the state of the pet food with added soy slop and God knows what else.

    We are being poisoned to death in accordance with the Global 2000 Report. Lung cancer is increasing and in those who have never even smoked. Is it surprising when you are breathing in Barium and Strontium 90 on a daily basis from the overhead aerosol operations by the U.S. Navy and U.S Air Force through both the military and civilian ‘open skies treaty’? Take a look at the projections for the future cases of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and think about it
