I watched the BBC news today. It was quite shocking. It claimed that half the population in the United Kingdom would have cancer at some time in their lives. Think about that! That means that one in every two people will have cancer.
I have never really thought about it before and I suppose that everybody always thinks that it´s not going to be them. However, with these new statistics it might well be me or you .I wonder what the statistics are for Spain.
One of the reasons why the cancer rate has risen is because people are living longer, so they have more time to get cancer. But the future is not so black, the director for cancer at NHS England, said: "Cancer survival rates in England are at an all-time high, but this new forecast shows it is more important than ever to take a fresh look at how we can do even better."
