Annual global cancer rates could increase by 50% from 10 million new
cases worldwide in 2000 to 15 million new cases by 2020, according to the World Cancer Report, issued last month by the International
Agency on Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organization
(WHO). The report also notes, however, that there is clear evidence that as
many as one third of cancer cases worldwide could be prevented through lifestyle
changes and public health measures by governments.
