Cancer Research UK (CRUK) has published new data, forecasting that the proportion of people who die from cancer will continue to fall over the next 18 years.
CRUK looked at different cancer types. The graph shows particularly noteworthy drops in the proportion of people dying from ovarian, bowel, breast and prostate cancers.
All of this adds up to an overall drop from 170 out of every 100,000 people, to 142 per 100,000. That’s a 17 per cent drop.
