Britain cancer death rates to fall 17 percent

Published On: Tue, Sep 25th, 2012 | Cancer Research | By IANS

Death rates from cancer in Britain are set to fall by almost 17 percent by 2030, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

Better diagnosis and treatment is the main reason for the change, according to the charity Cancer Research UK.

But the improved outlook is also said to reflect the fact that fewer people are smoking.

In 2010, an estimated 170 people in every 100,000 members of the population died from cancer. Over the next 17 years, this is forecast to fall to 142 per 100,000.
